Guestbook comments from the manager

July 2011 – We, 6 adults + 4 children, had a fantastic week here. Days were spent by the lovely pool, at Praia das Macas and exploring Sintra and the palaces of this region. A big hit was a 3-course dinner at the bistro which we would very mich recommend. Thank you for a geat holiday. The Colledges + the Ekanayakes



August 2011 - This house is located in a calm and beautiful location, close to the beaches and with good access. A beautiful region to take your breath away. The kids loved the pool and the house had all the commodities. Note that the owners are serious and trustful people. It was all good value and we loved it. Rodrigues family



August 2011 - 6 adults and 2 little children loved our stay. The rooms were spacious and we loved the ping-pong table. Of course the pool was a big hit. We were thrilled with all the child accomodations, crib, high chair, spoons, toys, towels. Also, perfect location, the Pena Palace was absolutely breathtaking! And the horse-carriage ride through Sintra is a must. We would recommend Casa monserrate to anyone. The McFaddens, Currans & Yarnells

Amazing House with lots of room! An Oasis!

  • 5 of 5
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Villa! It is as beautiful as the pictures depict and there is room for everyone. The owner is very responsive and helpful. The location is perfect...10 minutes to historical Sintra...1/2 hour to Lisbon...and a great base location for various day trips to towns such as Nazare, Obidos, Fatima, etc.

I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a villa that sleeps many people such as a large family or a group travelling together. The pool is wonderful to come home to after a long day of sightseeing and the fireplace was very enjoyable as well when we had our dinners outside. There is nothing to complain about or even have any issues with. Everything regarding the owner's description of the house on this website is accurate in every detail.

This rental is amazing and I am quite sure you and your family will enjoy it as much as we did!!!

Memorable stay

Grandparents, parents, children and uncles (party of 10) had a great time in this villa. It offers great comfort, is beautifully furnished and has lots of natural light, facts that wants us to visit again. During our 1 week stay, we had the opportunity to visit Lisbon,Sintra, Cascais, Estoril and Fatima, all were beautiful and made our trip worthwhile.
Thank you very much

Fantastic time

  • 5 of 5
Had a fantastic time in this villa, more than enough room for 3 people (2 adults and 1 baby). Antonio’s recommendations were spot on, the Estoril boardwalk was great and the Quinta da Regaleira was a highlight for us. The weather was perfect, barely any rain. We loved waking up to Palacio de Monserrate, the view from the front room really is incredible. Would definitely recommend Adega do Cozinheiro for eating lunch, the service was speedy, the food was great and the family who run it made us feel right at home.
Thank you very much for a great stay, couldn’t have asked for a better 1st holiday as a family.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
Very nice and large house in the wonderful Sintra area - Everything was clean and working fine - It has to be noted that two bedrooms have outside of the house access (near pool for one and back side of the garden for the other) which made our children even happier - the kitchen dishes are a little bit short for a 10 persons stay (to get same plate or glass for everyone) - great to get the pool to rest after climbing Sintra's wonderful residences or traveling to the very close lisboa, or it was possible to go to the nice beaches 10 minutes away - Great house in a great area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a positive review. The kitchen dishes tend to break along the year, probably more than usual this year. In any case we just bought a hole lot more.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect stay and a good reception of Mr. Antonio. The house is perfect and clean. It is ideal for two couples with children. It is comfortable in every sense of the term, thermal comfort, no noise, the facilities in good working order, the heated pool is ideal for children after sightseeing, also table tennis to unwind,. ... The house is 5 minutes from Sintra in a small village, and 35 minutes from Lisbon by train to Rossio from Portela de Sintra station. Very handy, I recommend it to everyone
