House / Villa - Colares, Praia Grande
average rating of 4.8421054 based on 19 reviews

The house is well located between Cascais & Sintra, on a big plot with distant views towards the sea

  • 3 of 5

This is a quiet charming but dated property with good views & very kind helpful owners. We used it as a base whilst we explored & went surfing nearby. The decor & bathrooms are dated but it's fine. The restaurant Sisudo nearby in the village is outstanding & certainly worth going to . Don't expect a modern shiny villa but if you want a break and house with a pool this is a good place to stay.

Owner's Response: Philip, thank you for having written a comment on my property where you've stayed recently. In spite of your positive comments, I notice that you just gave us 3 stars, while generally we have got 5 stars all these years from the many guests we have hosted. We would be grateful if you could inform us on the less positive points you experienced, so that we could improve on them. In any case, I look forward on having you and your nice family sometime again as our guests. Best wishes, António

Tolles Haus mit Charakter in einer schönen Gegend!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in "Meija Laranja". Das Haus ist voller Charme, aber schon in den Jahren gekommen. Also bitte keine moderne Luxus-Villa erwarten! Die Besitzer und Ihre Familie sind unglaublich nett und zuvorkommend. Komplett neue Fahrräder wurden prompt geliefert. Der Pool ist herrlich, wenig Chlor und schön tief. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist wunderschön. Gemüse und Obst aus dem Garten, Baumhaus und Schaukel für die Kinder und eine schöne Rasenfläche zum Entspannen. Wir hatten leider nur echt Pech mit dem Wetter: viele komplett bewölkte Tage. Aber Sintra mit seinen kulturellen Schätzen und sonnige Strände in Estoril waren nur eine kurze Fahrt entfernt. In der Nähe gibt es wunderschöne Strände: Praia da Ursa, Praia da Adraga ( ca. 30 Minuten zu Fuß ), Praia Grande... Wenn die Sonne scheint wirklich super!

From Lisbon aeroport, take the motorway IC19,follow directions for Sintra, Colares, Almoçageme; at the crossing to Praia Granda, turn right and drive 700m more;

Local cuisine, Restaurant "Toca do Júlio" or "Adega do Coelho", on the road to Almoçageme; fish restaurant at Praia da Adraga (3 km from Almoçageme). Early fall (Sep./Oct.) very mild, the beach being practically empty and still very agrable.
