Colares Villa Rental Photos and Description

Family Villa With Pool in the hills overlooking the sea near Sintra and Cascais

Autumn is here and glorious times to be had here with your family.

A delightful open plan family villa set in the Sintra hills looking down to the sea less than 5 kms away, not too close and not to far, just enough to be up away from the crowds and a bit cooler, which can be a relief from the hot sun down on the beach.

The villa catches the sun all day but there are shady areas to relax by the beautiful pool and laze about in this idyllic Sintra countryside setting or for the more adventurous there are numerous walks and mountain bike tracks to explore. The villa has been decorated in high quality and tastefully with comfort in mind so the beds are of good quality with orthopaedic mattresses with anti allergy protectors. The sheets are of 300tc cotton and down pillows to ensure your best nights sleep. The kitchen has also been made with the cook in mind so is very well equipped with a large American fridge and all the equipment you would have in your own home. the bathrooms too are all state of the art with walk in showers. In the open plan sitting room there is a large leather sofa in front of a 42inch tv with satellite receiver dvd player and a hi-fi and an wood burning fire for those winter travellers.

There are double doors that open onto the top garden that leads down to the secluded pool where there are the sun loungers with sun shade. walking around the villa you will find a table with grape vine clad loggia that will shade you while having a relaxed barbecue lunch.

Enjoy!!

The villa is situated 2 kms up from the local village of Colares which is 5kms from the world heritage site of Sintra where there are wonderful fairy tale castles and manor houses to visit. Monserate, Pena castle and Quinta da Regaleira which are an absolute must!!

The beaches of Praia do Maça and Praia Grande are perhaps our most local and are great for families so if you have some your adventurous boys/girls it is fantastic for surfing and body boarding. There are always plenty of cheap local restaurants nearby to satisfy all tastes. the likes of Guincho which is on the world circuit for windsurfers and especially Kite surf where you can see at any time no less than 50 in the water is a 10 minute drive along the coast towards Cascais, which is the fishing village/town where all the night life is to be had with lots of pubs and bars.

Lisbon is about 30kms away which is a wonderful castled city sat on seven hills with all you would expect from a mobile European city, loads of restaurants and places to see and visit, a walk up to the castle area is wonderful and encapsulating all that is Portuguese . Anyway if you are looking for a good holiday this is it and whether you are whizzing around all day in the baking heat or at the villa when you return to the villa which is about 5 degrees cooler than in Lisbon or Cascais you will appreciate every minute.

If you have any requests please ask and I will tell you where you can find everything for your complete holiday.

A local map of Sintra and the surrounding area will be sent with all directions and pointers to all the amenities in the surrounding area. Please call for any further information.

Perfect villa to relax close to nature and culture

  • 5 of 5
We had wonderful time in this remote villa situated in the fairytalish Sintra-Cascais nature park. The villa is carefully situated in the landscape, so the views through all the windows are just beautiful. Moreover, there are nice old roads and paths just next to the villa, running over the Sintra mountains to the nearby palaces, gardens and small villages. Our kids liked the pool and the Atlantic beaches nearby were even more appreciated. The Villa is both very functional and cozy. Thanks to James for good care!

Friendly Owner and lovely home

  • 4 of 5
James was wonderful to work with! We greatly appreciated his willingness to provide what we needed and in a timely and friendly manner. The home is well decorated and a nice retreat. It can be a bit tricky to find but it was all part of the adventure! I would recommend this home for couples or families with older children.

Friendly owner and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5
It was our first time to Portugal and we rented this lovely home with another couple and their baby. It was lovely to have the space for two babies. James, the owner, was kind enough to arrange for cots. I enjoyed working with James as I found him to be both helpful and kind. The home is well decorated and sits in a unique part of town. It was a bit difficult to find but it makes for a nice retreat. It worked out well to bring our babies but I likely wouldn't recommend bringing toddlers as the stairs would be unsafe for them.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Sarah for choosing our Villa and we are happy that you had a comfortable stay. I have taken onboard your comment about the stairs and am looking into putting a child stair gate! Many thanks again. James

paradise in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in casa Santa Anna. We are: two grannies with two children and their partners and one grandchild. the house is very spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. the kitchen is well equipped and the bartrooms are perfect as well as the swimmingpool. The house is located in the mountains with a nice view and far from the touristic hustle bustle from Sintra. But you have to visit this jewel of architectural fantasies. You can spend there several days to discover the royal culture of different centuries. Cascais is closeby and there are many beautiful beaches. so yes, i would recommend this place to my friends. One advice; don't bring toddlers; the staircase with the "vide" is not suitable for small kids.
