House in Penedo - Sintra World Heritage near the Serra and the Sea
average rating of 4.5 based on 18 reviews

Portugal is beautiful.

  • 3 of 5

First of all, the setting of Penedo is great. Not that far from Lisbon, close to Syntra, in the middle of the nature, surrounded by beaches.

Penedo itself can easily be reached by car. We didn't have a car and did it by foot, but we are used to walk. Let's say that it is recommended to come by own car, since you need to climb half an hour from Colares to get in Penedo.

The house itself is small and cozy. We stayed for 14 days, which was too long. The bathroom and terrace are really small and the house is really humid. We think it's due to the fact that you are living half in the mountains, but it was the most negative point of the journey. Also be aware of the fact that this vacation house is a part of the house of the owner, who has a larger balcony, below yours. The owner was friendly, but if you want a some space and privacy…

Conclusion: the price is good, the setting as well, a lot of different things to do. But if you want some luxury and privacy, this is according to us not the right spot.

Joli village très bien situé (proximité de la mer et de Lisbonne) dans une région magnifique. Maisonnette très propre. Salle de bain et cuisine vraiment petites mais suffisantes pour quelques jours. Accès difficile (pour personnes plus très jeunes...)

Cosy little holidayhome near to World Heritage Site Sintra

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this holiday home in tiny little village Penedo, nearby Colares and Sintra. In the house was all we needed for a week stay. The owners live on the same property and were very friendly. We spoke them a few times but they did not force themselves upon us. Lissabon is nearby and reachable by car or train. There are some beautiful beaches and villages nearby with very friendly people.

The village of Penedo is situated 2 km from the village of Colares, which is 8 kms from Sintra which is a world heritage, where there are wonderful fairytale castles and palaces to visit. Monserate, Pena Palace, Moorish castle, Quinta da Regaleira, which are a necessity. Our beautiful beaches, fantastic for surfing and bodyboarding. There are always plenty of local restaurants nearby to satisfy every taste. Next Guincho, which is the world circuit windsurfing and surfing, is a 10-minute drive along the coast towards Cascais, which is the fishing village / city where every day is night life with entertainment, pubs and bars .

Lisbon is about 30kms away, a wonderful city based on seven hills, and a divine natural light, with everything you'd expect from a European city. a lot of restaurants and places to see and visit, a walk to the castle.

A location map of Sintra area will be at your disposal with all the information of the surrounding area.
