Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

House / Villa - Colares, Praia Grande
average rating of 4.8333335 based on 18 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

schönes Haus in herrlicher Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub mit tollem Wetter und herrlichen Wandertouren entlang der traumhaften Küste. Das Haus ist ideal gelegen. Zu den Stränden ist es selbst zu Fuß und mit einem 6 Monate alten Baby im Tragetuch nur ein Katzensprung. Die Landschaft ist einfach einzigartig und sehr abwechslungsreich.

Bei unserer Anreise wurden wir sehr herzlich von António und seiner Frau Maria mit einem Willkommenskorb begrüßt. Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet und bietet ausreichend Platz und der schöne große Garten ist einfach ein Traum! Wir waren alle sehr begeistert und wünschen António und Maria alles Gute.

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.
