A wonderful home in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

A Portuguese neighbour of our daughter in Toronto recommended the Sintra area for a holiday and I began to look for a place to stay. I found Casa de Bambus and like others kept returning to it. Frederica made booking very easy and was a great help answering questions prior to our departure. The house was everything we wanted and more. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There was everything needed for babies supplied (cribs/high chairs/ booster seat/cupboard full of plastic dishes). The 4 kids adored the play area and the pool. A treat to have cleaning and towel change during our two week stay. (never had before at homes we rented). What makes this extra special is the area. Citrus trees in bloom across the street with their heavenly scent. Two horses also across the street which our 2 yr old visited at least 3 times a day. Very peaceful with lovely views of the mountains. 5 mins to one beach and many many more within 10-15 mins. Sintra with it's fabulous historical attractions and supermarkets is an easy close drive but Colares and Mucifal are both easy walk and have everything you want. (great butcher and fish markets) Go to Portugal. Stay in this wonderful home and explore this great area. You will have a wonderful time. Many thanks to Marilia and Frederica for all their help in making this a fabulous multi generational (10 of us ...from Canada and Scotland) holiday. Highly recommended!

Perfect Holiday with the Family

  • 5 of 5

I organised a Family holiday to Casa Bambus for my husband's 40th Birthday. There was 12 Adults and 5 Children and it met all our requirements plus much more. As there was a few small children the play area and indoor swimming pool was perfect to keep them entertained. The villa is very spacious and has all the modern equipment required. We made good use of the BBQ and on my husband's birthday I thought let have a day off with cooking and paid for a BBQ chef to come and cook our evening meal. The service and food was amazing for the price, we had several types of meat, rice salad and even dessert.The gentleman was very friendly and by the end of the evening felt like we had known him for years. On another night we had a another evening off and had a local lady cook us traditional Portuguese food which was amazing again and she also supplied a Birthday cake for my husband which only lasted that evening. We spent a day at the local beach praia da macas with the children which has all the amenities needed especially a park which they keep asking to go back to.

Marilia the wonderful, helped us with all our needs and requirement with no problem. A few of the ladies were feeling stressed out towards the end of the holiday as a few kids were playing up so we decided to get some ladies time. Marilia kindly arranged for a lady to come and give us a back massage, which was wonderful and much needed (ladies I would recommend)

Overall the stay was much more than I expected as agreed by all in the family.

Marilia was a great with anything we asked from her.

We would return in the future

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa dos Bambos is a beautiful villa and had everything we could wish for. Our family of 18 had a wonderful time and were very sorry to leave. We are all saving hard to be able to come for two weeks next time. We were able to buy anything we needed in the charming village of Mucipal which was within easy walking distance; for bigger shops there was a supermarket within an easy drive. Maria, the manager was extremely helpful and was with us in a couple of minutes if we had any queries. I would definitely recommend Casa dos Bambos.

We found a good local supermarket (very cheap) that we used in the village he would even pack are shopping up and run it back for us.I would recommend a day out in Cascais we took a taxi which was good value the number is in the folder we used Luis.Marilla recommend a local lady who would cook us homecook food and bring it over in the evening and it was first class. The villa has everything you need and the whole party had a lovely time (age range from 1 year to 70) so if you are looking for A Perfect Holiday you have just found it.

The perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Not far from Lisboa airport we arrived in a beautifull area, Colares. We stayed at Casa dos Bambus, a more than beautifull villa with a spectacular view of the mounatins surrounding the area. It`s very easy to reach. Nearby are some small markets and shops, walking distance and also the beaches are not far. The villa itself is very big. we stayed ther with 11 persons and we had plenty of room. The people who own the villa are very nice and showed us the surrounding area and how to reach everything, wich was very nice of them. It has a inside pool and an outside swimming pool. It has an area where you can play tabletennis etc. It`s really worth the stay..
