Colares Cottage Rental Photos and Description

CASA NO AR - 5 Bedrooms/ 4 bathrooms sleeps 8/11 CASA LUA-2 Bedrooms-sleeps 2/5

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. Garden, Private DipPool/Jacuzzi, Patio with Barbecue outside the Living/Dining/Kitchen which also opens to a veranda on the other side with spectacular panoramic views to the Atlantic coast and the Sintra mountain. 1 bathroom with sunken bath/shower. 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.

CASA DA LUA has access to CASA NO AR Pool when rented together or has a Private DipPool/Jacuzzi (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.
