Why Vera / Pedro Barahona chose São João das Lampas

A propriedade está localizada na área de Sintra, num Parque Natural que permite uma excelente qualidade de vida, tanto para trabalhar como para lazer.

What makes this farmhouse unique

In the rural area of Sintra but very close to the village, its location in a very quiet area, the good organization of the house divisions (all rooms have direct access to the garden) and its garden with very pleasant lawn and pool, provide an ideal spot for an enjoyable holiday.

Its short distance from the village and the mountains of Sintra with its monuments and cultural landscape as well as from excellent beaches, equestrian centres and golf courses, allows you to optimally combine cultural activities with relaxing moments.

Perfect villa for family or friends!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the villa with friends and three children for 7 days in May 2017. The villa is amazing, large, clean and homely. The garden is very big with pool area, BBQ and lots of green space. The owners are extremely accommodating and were always on hand if we needed anything. The villa is a bit off the beaten track in the heart of Sintra so I would recommend hiring a car as the taxi and Uber drivers found it difficult to find at times. Other than that, it was the perfect stay and I hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: Gemma and her friends made a lovely group that stayed for a week in Casa das Xaras. for a wedding in Sintra. They were very friendly and took very good care with the villa, leaving it in perfect conditions. It was a pleasure to host Gemma and her party and we look forward to hosting them again, or simply to have them visiting us in the future.

Beautiful house, owners wonderfully welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly wonderful house in a very private setting, close to Lisbon, just 15 minutes drive from the stunning hills of Sintra, and 10 minutes from the beach.

The owners were very welcoming and greeted us with local wine, cheese, salami and fresh herbs for cooking. The facilities are spotlessly clean, the view from the many terraces spectacular. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this house.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this stay was excellent!

The hosts were extremely good with communicating with us before the holidays and during! They answered all our queries and we never had to wait too long for a response.

They were also very attentive with the check-in, ensuring we knew where everything in the house was and how everything worked. And it was also very helpful that they provided us with a 'welcome pack' showing the surrounding area and all the near restaurants and shops!

The house itself was very comfortable and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We were a group of 14 and everyone slept comfortably and there's more than enough bathrooms for all!

The grounds are very well maintained with the house being perfectly located in a secluded area, but only minutes drive from civilisation!

Definitely recommend this house for family units or groups of friends looking for a nice getaway!

Beautiful gem owned by lovely folks about 30-to-40

  • 5 of 5

We were at the villa with friends for 4 days in May 2015. Amazing large, super clean and very cute villa about 40 min west of Lisbon. There are multiple terraces, a great pool and pool area and a very large garden. The owners are extremely sweet and super flexible. Beware it can get cold at night, blankets are available but an extra sweater is recommended.
