About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 living / bedroom with double sofa bed. Up to 6 people

Ideally located the historic center of Colares, this house was built in the sixteenth century and was once a bakery. Nowadays it is a charming house, where 6 people can enjoy Sintra.

The house has 1 bedroom with a large double bed, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds, a living area / bedroom with double sofa bed, 2 bathrooms, 1 living room, a kitchen and an outdoor space with a barbecue.

The village of Colares provides all the necessary for a pleasant stay. Nearby you will have available groceries, bakeries, butchers, coffee shops and restaurants where you can enjoy the delightful portuguese cuisine.

There are also several outdoor activities. We recommend the following:

-Aguda beach wich is one of the wildest and more beautiful of our coast line. It has several hiking trails you can discover.

- The picturesque village and beach of Azenhas do Mar, where you will enjoy a beautiful view over the cliffs and the ocean. Azenhas do Mar is one of the oldest towns of the region and the water mills (Azenhas do Mar in portuguese) date from the period of the Moorish occupation.

At around 9 km from the house, you will find a Paintball place, canopi tours, rock climbing and rappel.

If you prefer, you can also enjoy surfing, windsurfing, bodyboard and parasailing.

The house and the region have everything to make you travel through time ...

A charming house, fabulously located near Sintra.

  • 4 of 5

This house in the centre of old Colares village is beautiful and unusual. It is extremely close to an excellent restaurant, Colares Velho, a cafe, small grocers and the village bakers, with parking in the village square. It is in a great location for the beaches at Praia da Maça, Praia Grande, Praia Adraga and Praia Gunicho, to Sintra and Cascais.

The house is warm, helped by a log fire and portable radiators (we took it over New Year) and has a very well equipped kitchen. Lots of hot water for warm baths after cold days at the beach. Ana provided us with a cot for our 3 yr old, which was very kind. Great free wifi connection. The spiral staircase may be a parent´s nightmare, but was a great play area..! Ana can provide stair gates if you need them.

Overall, a charming house, fabulously located for exploring, Cascais, the Serra da Sintra and the beaches at any time of the year.

Gemütlichkeit und schöne Schlösser/Parken

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben unser Zeit sehr genossen in das gemütliche Haus. Es hat besondere Räume die geschmackvoll eingerichtet sind. In die unmittelbare Nähe gibt es mindestens 5 Schlösser meistens mit eigene Parken in das Berglandschaft von Sintra zu besuchen. Weiter gibt es viele Strände ab 10 Minuten mit eine Auto. Mietwagen ist sowieso zu empfehlen. Damit lässt sich auch gut Cascais und Lissabon besuchen.

This house is beautiful! From the moment we enterred we felt very comfortable. The house is renovated and furnished with very good taste. Colares is a very nice small and calm village. Beaches are a very short drive away. Sintra and Lisbon with its beautiful landscape and sights are also in good reach. For us it was the perfect combination of beachlife and cultural activities. Probably our most relaxing vacation ever!

Thank you Guiomar and Ana Paula for the good organisation and warm welcoming!

Passei aqui a passagem do ano com uns amigos e adoramos esta casa cheia de História e memorias onde os pormenores deliciosos do passado se encontram com o conforto contemporâneo e a beleza e melancolia da paisagem de Sintra.

Adoramos acordar com o coreto e a Igreja de colares na frete da casa e escovar os dentes a olhar para o Palácio da Pena ao longe.

Ideal para uma estadia tranquila e relaxante.
