Overview

Colares Cottage Rental Photos and Description

CASA NO AR - sleeps 8/11 CASA LUA-sleeps 2/5 CASA NAS NUVENS sleeps 4/10

CASA NO AR, CASA DA LUA, CASA NAS NUVENS are renovated typical Portuguese country cottages dating back 300 years or more, set high up on the Sintra Mountain, near Colares, with panoramic views to the Atlantic coast and beaches and to the Sintra mountain with its spectacular historical Palacio Pena. Set in the woodlands above Penedo, a small village with one village shop, bakery, cafe and taverna, set around the church square and village fountain, gushing fresh spring water. Perfect choice for a peaceful, away from it all family holiday...or romantic hideaway...something for everyone from beautiful unpolluted beaches, historical monuments in Sintra, 5 golf courses within 15 minutes, nature walks in the mountain, fashionable Estoril/Cascais famous for its Casino and shopping centre, and of course Lisbon's city life just half an hour away.

CASA NO AR sleeps 6/10. Garden. Private Pool. Covered Barbecue/Dining area

There is a big farmhouse kitchen/dining room with old flagstone floor, a big fireplace, a wooden mezzanine with single sofa bed. The kitchen is fully equipped. To one side of the kitchen is the master bedroom(double bed), and a full bathroom with pretty 18th C tiles, there is a staircase leading up to two children's low ceiling sleeping lofts, each with single bed and a pull-out bed and big south-facing window to the garden. To the other side of the kitchen is a small double bedroom and en suite full bathroom. There is a separate Laundry room in the garage, with extra fridge/ deep freeze. Upstairs, reached by a converted old wine press in the dining area is an interior natural rock garden, and a large living room, with fireplace, a bar with sink, a guest bathroom with shower and 17th C tiles, doors lead to a covered verandah with old tiled panels. The POOL HOUSE (sleeps 2)has covered BBQ area with big slate table and sink. 1 double bedroom, en suite bathroom, Sitting room, Kitchenette

.CASA DA LUA - (sleeps 2/4/5)...adjoins Casa no Ar, but has a seperate entrance.

Stairs lead down to a Bedroom/living area with fireplace, built in double bed, and single sofa bed - separate entrance. Another wooden spiral staircase leads down from Living room to a double Bedroom set in the natural rocks (old stable)with separate entrance doors from a patio...brightly decorated with orange and red as a contrast to the natural rock. This unusual open plan layout is hard to describe...there is only one interior door to the bathroom. There are child safety gates at the top of the stairs and access to pool

CASA DA LUA has access to CASA NO AR Pool when rented together or has a Private Pool (3.5m circle)

Great hideaway for romantic honeymooners.

About Jane Doody

I was born in Hereford England...but travelled extensively before I found my 'utopia' in Portugal...between Casa no Ar in Penedo,Sintra (rental property see #73582) and Monte Branco in Monsaraz(rental property # 59751). My children were born and brought up in Portugal; there are still many of their books and games. Anthony (born in 1983) now runs his own restaurant and catering business which is great for guests wishing a special dinner party or wedding event. Francis (born in 1985) is a web designer with lots of famous California film star clients...he is responsable for my own websites. Casa no Ar and Monte Branco have many happy memories for us.

Why Jane Doody chose Colares

The houses are set in the woodlands above Penedo which is a small friendly village with one shop/bakery, one cafe/restaurant ...with a fountain gushing fresh spring water and unpolluted air of Sintra's protected mountain forests....yet close to beautiful sandy beaches, cosmopolitan Cascais/Estoril and just 30 minutes from Lisbon with all its city attractions. It was the perfect choice to bring up my children...and now my grandchild who can run and play safely in the village square

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all really enjoyed the house; an idyllic spot and just right for our crowd, roomy and cozy at the same time. Everyone looked forward to the day’s late-afternoon return, with a quick dip in the pool (longer for the kids) and a drink outside before dinner. We cooked pretty much every night and found everything we needed. You found a good place to settle. Lucky you.

Thanks and Best

Rural Charm

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay and have to say that the location was superb. The views from the front of the property and from the garden and terraces behind were wonderful. You had the Moorish castle and Penna palace set on the hills to the east, the Colares valley to the north and the Atlantic Coast in the West. It took us about 45 minutes to drive to the villa from the airport on easy roads. However there are narrower roads around the property that test your driving abilities. The house was very neat and tidy with a rustic character which seemed well suited to the environment. There was plenty of space to allow everyone to find their own quiet place to read or to rest. There were plenty of bathrooms and facilities to shower after a busy day. The villa was well serviced with cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, fridges and freezers etc. The maid service was excellent with fresh towels and bed linen half way through our stay. The pool was a godsend for the children and adults alike and was in use everyday. The information pack within the villa was a nice touch and directed us to places that we would have never have gone to. The location to the main heart of the World Heritage Site was the greatest advantage. Although we had done our research on the area before we arrived we had not realized the proximity to the main tourist sites most of which we could reach within 20 minutes. We had planned to go to Lisbon for a few days but there was so much to see and do locally that we didn't bother. We did not each out much at all but instead relied upon the local supermarket in Sintra for the staples and the local weekend farmers market for excellent local produce. The local beach was really good with good surf and lots of sand to build with. All in all it was a great stay away from the crowds but close enough to visit places at your own pace. Sintra did get busy in the middle of the day but staying so close allowed us to get there at 0930 when the palaces opened and to leave them when things got busy and too hot a couple of hours later. We saw very few tourists outside Sintra itself which was great. The locals were charming and very friendly. We had a great time and returned to the UK very relaxed.

Excellent

The whole experience was excellent. The house was much more than we expected; also, it was clean and well maintained. The areas was gourgeos, you have a mountain climate and in 10 minutes you are at the beatiful beaches of the sintra. The renting process was easy and the owner was very responsive.
