Banzão House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10 / Bedrooms 4 / Bathrooms 4 / Private Pool 10m x 5m Depth 1,10 - 2,50

The hudge, peaceful garden will be a delight for the whole family, the only sound being the birds singing. Inside, the very pleasant living/dining room has a fire, making it ideal for cooler evenings. The whole house has a lovely feeling of a true family home which is perfect for the summer, as well as the cooler months.

Great house, lovely location, very peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house. In amongst the pine trees with a huge garden. The owners where very attentive and welcoming. We went in November but had great weather and got the two wood fires going each evening.The house is bigger than it looks from the outside. Easily big enough for two families with lots of kids. The gravel road is fine for a normal car. Come in from the correct end and its not far. If you don't know the area use a GPS and you will be fine. Great things to see in Sintra which is not far away. Lovely beaches and restaurants only a few minutes away. Great. (Try Buzio Cafe in Praia Das Macas and in Colares - Restaurant Colares Velho. Avoid the seafood restaurant at the far end of Plaia Grande though)

Great house, great pool

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. There's lots of room and the pool was fantastic! Very close to a market, butcher, bank, little cafes and restaurants. It's about a 7 minute drive from the beach. At first we thought it was a little remote but after being tourists all day, it was so nice to come back to quiet and just sit and relax by the pool. We had a fire every night. Just a word of warning... this house is on an unpaved, dirt road with big holes and ruts. You will wonder where the heck you are going but it really is worth it. Ask for very detailed instructions from the owner as to where to find the house. We didn't and it took us a while. Bring a GPS if you have one. Couple of things that would make it more comfortable is a newer couch. The one they have is quite lumpy and not at all comfortable. Since there were only 3 of us, we just sat in the armchairs but for a big group, it wouldn't work at all. Also, a 4 slice toaster would be handy. With 3, it wasn't so bad but I can just imagine how slow the process of making toast would be at breakfast time if there were 10 people. It was all pretty clean. Found some cobwebs on the sofa but I think we were the first renters of the season. And the dishes smelled a little musty but I think that was because they sat in the wooden hutch for a while. Nothing a run through the dishwasher didn't fix. I would definitely stay here again.

Férias em Família muito agradáveis

  • 4 of 5

Passámos uma ótima semana em família nesta casa, juntando filhos e netos. Grande espaço exterior cuidado com bom relvado, piscina limpa, apoiado por boas cadeiras que permitiam desfrutar com tranquilidade o sol e toda a natureza envolvente. O jardim tem ainda uma zona de alpendre com uma mesa de ping-pong equipada que permitiu realizar vários campeonatos familiares da modalidade. Foi também muito apreciada a cama elástica.

A casa é espaçosa, equipada com o essencial, muito embora para a sua plena ocupação necessite de uma cozinha melhor apetrechada e de alguma renovação de equipamento e de sofá da sala. O nível de limpeza poderá ser melhorado.

Simpatia e boa relação com o proprietário.

Maison très agréable

  • 4 of 5

La maison est agréable, très propre et très bien équipée (cependant certains éléments électroménagers sont un peu vieux, mais fonctionnent correctement).

En revanche, le tout petit barbecue va bientôt rendre l'âme, il faudrait le remplacer par un plus grand car il est trop petit pour la capacité de la maison.

Elle dispose de lieux de vie très spacieux, c'est idéal si vous venez à 2 familles.

Le canapé et les tapis sont cependant élimés.

La literie est impeccable, les lits bien douillets.

Il y a 5 vraies chambres :

En rez de chaussée : 2 chambres avec un lit double chacune, 1 chambre avec 2 lits superposés (soit 4 couchages) et un lit bébé en très bon état.

A l'étage, 1 chambre avec 2 lits simples et 1 chambres avec 2 lits simples pouvant être collés et 1 lit pour très jeune bébé (les rebords sont trop bas si bébé sait s'asseoir).

Un jardinier et un piscinier viennent une fois par semaine.

Une femme de ménage vient changer les draps et les serviettes de bain le vendredi si vous restez plusieurs semaines.

La piscine est très grande, mais elle n'est ni chauffée, ni couverte par une bâche pour la nuit, du coup l'eau reste relativement froide.

Le lieu est magnifique, la maison est située au cœur d'un beau jardin et d'une immense pinède.

Les échanges avec le propriétaire sont très agréables. Il est à disposition pour toutes nos questions.

Colares est située sur la pointe la plus occidentale du Portugal, très ventée, et il fait froid dehors le soir (la maison reste très agréable).

Agréable maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison. La localisation est idéale: proche des plages et des sites touristiques....mais la maison est un peu dure à trouver!

La maison est agréable et fonctionnelle. Elle est très bien équipée pour un séjour avec un ou plusieurs bébés.

Located in a prime area, the house is very close to several beaches which are a surfer´s paradise (Praia Grande, Praia das Maças (2km) and many others). Close by is Sintra - a classified UNESCO World Heritage site, with its palaces and the wonderful Toy Museum. Mafra also makes for a pleasant day out, with its palace/convent and the miniature village is a 'must see' for younger visitors.
