Excellent place for a portugal holiday

  • 5 of 5
After a week-long trip over the Europe, we’ve spent a very nice week in Colares, living in one of the Praia-Grande villas. We were here two years ago - and at that time the villas were practically new - all of the furnishing was comfortable and clean, kitchen was well equipped, there was a TV and wireless (avaliable only outside of villa). Every morning we got fresh bread from our hosts, what was very convenient.
Villas are located in the corner of the large garden. The place is quiet, and there is a nice view on the surrounding hills of Sintra. Near the house of our hosts, there is a pool that can be freely used by the visitors of villas, and which we used with pleasure during the hot days.
The location of villas gives a fairly easy access to Praia Grande beach (10 -15 minute walk), and few minutes of car drive, there is a nice market and a grocery, where you can buy good and fairly cheap food - if you feel like cooking something on your own.
Last, but not least, i would like to write about the hospitality of Pedro and Luisa’s family. They were very friendly for us through all the time we were in Colares. They invited us for a delicious diner, and after that even drove us around to show us the neighborhood!
Everyone who would like to visit Sintra probably knows what to see and where to go, but we can recommend visiting magical city of Sintra itself (especially in the evening), Monserrate and it’s gardens, or Cabo da Roca, (and of course the ocean :)
Overall, i would definitely recommend Villas Praiagrande as a place for spending portugal holiday...

one of the best weeks

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a perfekt time at praia grande! The place was just too nice, 15 minutes to the beach, great waves and magnificent sunsets. Our hosts were the best you can imagine and we had verry much fun with them. I ate the best sea food ever and was just impressed by the country.
Excellent!
Have a nice time at Praia Grande!

Ps: all the best to Sir Petro!

Villas Praia Grande

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my wife stayed in one of the cottages for 10 days in June 2011. We had never been to the Sintra area of Portugal before and found this delightful cottage through the internet.

From the first day of our arrival Pedro and Louisa couldn't do more to make us feel more welcome and at home. A wonderful touch was the fresh bread delivered every morning by Pedro onto the cottage terrace for breakfast.

The cottage was excellent - clean and modern - and was ideal for what we needed with the addition of the pool to cool off after a day sightseeing in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Praia Grande. It is a great location, close to the sea and beaches and all of the local areas of interest in and around Sintra. It is also a short train ride away from Lisbon which is a wonderful city to visit.

We can't emphasise more how welcoming Perdo and Louisa are and would throughly recommend this to anyone who hasn't been to this area of Portugal before. This is the real Portugal come and see it for yourself.

We would definately recommend Villa Praia to any travellers to the Sintra area!

A Magical Visit

  • 5 of 5
We are an English couple, we stayed for 5 days in May. The Villa was very comfortable with a veranda for outdoor dining and a beautiful vista of the mountains and nearby Sintra. The beach was in walking distance or short drive. There are several beaches along the coast nearby worth a visit. The local village had good shops for groceries and places to have a coffee and beer and snails perhaps..
We enjoyed a meal in an excellent seafood restaurant near Praia Grande which was recommended by Pedro. Both Pedro, Louisa and their two children were more than welcoming and helpful during our stay, they made us feel at home. Their quinta has a pool which was refreshing on a hot day and their animals were a delight especially Vamp the dog and Gat the cat. We thank them for a fantastic holiday and hope to visit again.
