Lovely spot at the top of a village

  • 4 of 5

A group of friends stayed in this charming house during the winter last year. It has an artist's charm, full of unique and welcoming art and furniture, with all of the amenities a traveler needs. Lots of space to spread out, and a kitchen equipped with pots and pans and coffee accoutrement! We enjoyed excellent wine in the dining room as we plotted our next day's travel, and gathered in the living room for morning coffee. Unless you travel very light and enjoy hikes, you will need a car, as the village is on a steep hill, and the house is almost at the top of it. A short climb from the house, very walkable, is a handy store and cafe. One day we walked to a nearby beach also. All of our other explorations involved a car, and there is convenient parking in the courtyard for your steed!

Authentic house & village

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in an authentic small Portuguese village and home this is the place! The traditional stucco house is situated in a lovely lush garden with large palm tree and vines over the entryway. Inside this cozy and clean house is filled with original artist works including tile, paintings, dishware and sculptures. Bedrooms wrap around the axis of the house so each has a unique window view and all afford privacy. The living room fireplace offers a great respite to warm yourself, relax and plan your daily outings. Nice size dining room and kitchen for cooking and entertaining. Especially beautiful, peaceful vista view from the patio toward the lower section of the village. Gated off street parking included – a must in this small village where streets are very very narrow. Local coffee shop and village grocery both within walking distance. Sintra is a short drive, about 9 miles, for historic sights and entertainment. Almocageme another quaint Portuguese village and beautiful pristine beach are about 10 miles away. The hostess is responsive and very helpful!

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Santa Iria is a hidden jewel in the heart of Portugal’s LISBON/Coastal area. The home feels warm and welcoming from the moment you arrive at the gate. Once inside the garden walls, the charm of the villa begins to take ahold of you. Beautiful traditional, rustic, hand-painted tiles (Azulejo) and iron works decorate the mature plantings of the outer garden. There is also a brightly tiled wading pool, great for getting cool and for sharing the evening wine. It’s obvious artists have had a big part in the design this home, which makes it even more of a unique find. The interior of the home is lovely – well decorated with a combination of fresh contemporary and timeless traditional. (The modern artwork on the walls is balanced beautifully with the rustic farm wood tables and chairs.) The accommodations are top rate; comfortable bed, roomy interior, well decorated and quite comfortable. As the main house easily sleeps 6, it’s a perfect home for a family vacation.

Because it’s so close to Sintra and Lisbon, it makes for the perfect centrally located getaway spot. Only 18 miles from Lisbon, it’s very easy to take the bus to Sintra and catch the fast train to Lisbon for a day or weekend visit. (The transport system is very easy to understand, too.) We had a rental car for our visit so we were able to take in the numerous attractions nearby the home. If you are a surfer, there is a great surfing beach very close by car. Other areas with easy access are Monserrate, Capuchos monastery, and several enchanting coastal towns. My favorite close jaunt is either the walk to Almoçageme, a typical Portuguese village, or further on to the beach Praia Adraga. (Also close are many other beaches like Praia Macas and Praia Grande/Pequena.) Almoçageme is a charming little town and is great on a Sunday because all the families come out to the center square for social time. All generations are present and it really provides an authentic Portuguese family experience. Of note is the fantastic 6-euro meal mid-day up behind the Bicycle Bar. If you get there early enough there's fresh fish available, but the espetadas are great, too. Meals include wine, soup, salad and dessert! Also of note is the small village of Colares at the foot of the hill upon which Casa Santa Iria is nestled.

A most beautiful house and property

  • 5 of 5

The pictures barely do this place justice. It is spacious, cool in summer, and with both artistic furnishings and traditional Portuguese ceramics and decor.The bedrooms are restful,- comfortable mattresses covered with lovely linens. The showers/plumbing work well. The garden has abundant mature plantings and flowers, along with tile and ironwork art. The beaches and restaurants nearby were good and easy to reach. I was able to easily take the train into Lisbon to avail myself of all that great city has to offer. But wonderful to come back in the evening to this lovely environment. I stayed here for a week several years ago and then again more recently, and cannot wait to return.
