Overview

Colares Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom cottage to sleep 4 located on the Sintra mountains

Situated on the west end of the Sintra hills close to the Cabo da Roca Lighthouse, the furthest most westerly point in Europe.

This historic area has many beaches with beautiful walks not to mention great local fish restaurants. It is located only 15km from Cascais and Sintra and 25km from Lisbon.

This beautifully restored cottage on the edge of my garden has private access and enjoys panoramic sea views with wonderful sunsets.

The cottage is fully insulated, double glazed and fully heated for maximum comfort with a luxury bathroom.

Golf at Quinta da Marinha (10 km away): The golf course at Quinta da Marinha has 18 holes with 5.870 metres of unadulterated nature surroundings and major challenges.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior, this par 71 has great views to Atlantic Ocean and Sintra Mountains.

The area, Lisbon Golf Coast, won the IAGTO Award in 2007 - best established golfing destination Europe. Challenge your friends for a little play-off or enjoy the services of our resident PGA Pro. The main thing is to practice your sport of choice in gorgeous natural surroundings.

Nature Walks: On your door step you have access to the idealic Sintra moutains. These are great for nature walks and picnics.

Lovely Spot for our Family to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The sunsets, and stargazing was spectacular when there wasn't any clouds. The place had everything that one needs. There was even an excellent book on the hiking trails around the Sintra area (including the geology!). The place is close to beautiful beaches, great hiking, and day trips to Sintra, Obidos, and Lisbon. The owners provided excellent suggestions for us with regards to restaurants, places to see, and wine. It is obvious they love living in this spot. In the yard there was a nice spot for our daughter who loves to fool around outside where no one can see her to play with lime trees, apple trees, cork trees, and others I do not know the name of. The next time we come to Portugal this will be the first place we try to stay.

A pleasant stay in a lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable house, good beds and shower! Ideal for visiting the Sintra area, all high lights of the area are in the neighborhood and reachable by car. During our stay the weather was good and we had breakfast and barbecue on the terrace with view on the sea. Nick and Sveta are very kind and had some good tips for restaurants. Thank you for our pleasant stay in your lovely cottage!

Perfect home for beach and Sintra

  • 5 of 5

Great location - elegant interiour and wll located for visiting both, beaches for surfing and Sintra for sighseeing.

Of course - you need a car!

The cottage is seperated from the main house and has its own terrace with BBQ. Very workable for families. Located on very quiet street, no noise whatsoever. Helpful, nice and interesting owners, easily available for questions or a chat. Of course - you need a car.

Would definately recommend this property to others.

A lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Nick and Sveta are very welcoming hosts for guests at this lovely cottage on the coast. The setting and views are idyllic looking down to the ocean. Very easy to get to from Lisbon with a car and yet a world away in the mountains and forest. There were lots of places to go and visit in the locality. The cottage had everything we needed, was well presented and cosy. It was very comfortable for us. We really enjoyed being able to sit on the terrace too. We had a smashing time and would definitely go again.

Very beautiful house, weather less beautiful

  • 3 of 5

The house is brandnew and very beautiful. Small, but nice bathroom. Cooking-facilities limited as there are only 2 pits. No dish-washer. Washingmachine (=handy). 40' drive to Lisbon.

Owners are very friendly and helpful.

Very safe, automatic fence.

Disavantage : very close to Cabo da Roca, very chilly and extremely windy, impossible for us to have breakfast outside or to do a BBQ, what a pitty : therefore mixted feelings about this property.
