Comfortable house and fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week for two families (4 adults and 4 kids). The views of the coast and ocean are incredible and deliver lovely nightly sunsets over the water. The grounds are expansive and fun for kids to roam around and explore.

The kitchen is well equipped and the grill is great for grilling fish bought at the local market. We were very comfortable in the house and had plenty of room for nightly dinners on the porch.

The caretaker was responsive and helpful. We hope to return in the future!

Wonderful house in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us, including two young children, stayed comfortably in the house at the end of July and the beginning of August, 2017.The house is spacious, attractive and well-maintained, with a very well-equipped kitchen which is easy to use. There are clothes washing and drying facilities in the garage attached to the house. There is plenty of parking space. A wonderful, immaculately cared for garden, with the most beautiful palm trees, surrounds the large pool. The views of the Atlantic coast are outstanding, a delight each day and then each evening to watch the sun setting over the sea.

The location is particularly good because the sea and its breezes keep the weather cooler than the heat we experienced in Lisbon. We were all able to sleep well. There may be sea mists in the morning but these tend to clear up later on.

We shopped in the supermarket in Colares, a pretty little town on the way to Sintra and this was more than enough for our needs. Sintra and the old part of Lisbon were, understandably, very crowded at this high point in the holiday season so we stuck to the smaller, more out of the way places. We particularly liked Azenhas do Mar, with its spectacular location, where we had a wonderful meal in the seafood restaurant.

Great family holiday house with wonderful views and a big garden.

  • 5 of 5

Large house with plenty of space inside and outside. Good sized pool (bit cold in June) with great gardens.

We had a great local chef Vera cook our evening meals which was done to a very high standard and gave us some authentic Portuguese food. Ask the owner of you need a chef.

Overall with three children under 2 years old we still managed to see a lot of the local area. Great beaches nearby and plenty of towns and attractions set in the stunning national park area.

Beautiful property with a superb view

  • 5 of 5

We, a extended family of 9, stayed comfortably enjoying the surroundings for a week in October. The property met our expections wonderfully. The house was clean and in great shape. The garden and pool were also well maintained with a gardener taking care of it.

The absolutely best thing about the property is its location. The view is spectacular with rolling hills and the Atlantic ocean in the background. The surroundings are great for hiking and just enjoying the nature in general.

Ulgueira is a picturesque small village with narrow streets and whitewashed buildings. The small village doesn't have a grocery store so a car is necessary. Both Cascais and Sintra are just a short drive away. For people who enjoy hiking I recommend climbing down to Ursa beach which can be found near Cabo da Roca. Its only a short hike away from the property.

I warmly recommend renting this property for anyone who find the descripton and pictures appealing.

Kiitos! Obrigado! Danke!

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Die Quinta da Barroquela befindet sich in traumhafter Lage im Naturschutzgebiet um Sintra herum im kleinen, ursprünglichen Dörfchen Ulgueira - für uns als sechsköpfige Familie war dieses Domizil ein hervorragender Ort, um zu entspannen! Für die Mahlzeiten konnten wir zwischen den drei Terrassen wählen (die Küche ließ keine Wünsche offen, es ist einfach alles vorhanden); nach dem Aufenthalt an einem der naheliegenden Strände haben wir oft den Tag am Swimmingpool ausklingen lassen. Verschiedene Ausflugsmöglichkeiten nach Sintra und Lissabon bieten Abwechslung zum Strandprogramm. Erwähnenswert ist ebenfalls, dass ein wunderschöner Fußweg zur Adraga-Bucht führt (30 min. Gehzeit, war aber auch für unseren Vierjährigen gut machbar). Das Haus und der Garten sind sehr gepflegt; wir durften sogar aus der Gemüseecke ernten, was gerade reif war - köstlich. Die ersten zwei Tage war es noch recht kühl; dafür hat uns dann der kuschelige, warme Kamin im Wohnzimmer entschädigt. Anschließend eineinhalb Wochen lang Sonne und Badewetter! Bei allen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten ist das Haus mit seinem riesigen Garten so schön, dass wir an manchen Tagen einfach dort vor Ort geblieben sind. Sehr empfehlenswert! Zusätzlich war die (deutschsprachige) Betreuung vor Ort durch die Hausvermittlerin sehr herzlich - wann immer wir eine Frage zu Restaurants, Märkten, Ausflügen etc. hatten, sie war immer für uns da.
