                              The Studio

                              4 of 5
                              We loved staying in this well-equipped studio. It is a fantastic modern space, light and airy. The huge windows have a truly magnificent view (shared by the upper terrace / pool area) over the land to the sea, which is equally beautiful at night when all the lights are twinkling. We were lucky enough to have the owner Jane, (always very kind and helpful) nearby to introduce us to to a local way of life which we would never have encountered otherwise. Her recommendations for eating locally were spot on and included budget and more stylish restaurants. All of which is in the information folder. The Sintra area is quite spectacular with an array of amazing old palaces and gardens to visit. As well as that, there is the coast with very pretty coves and larger sandy beaches. We wished we had had more time.

                              A month in the most beautiful place

                              5 of 5
                              We stayed at Jane´s house CASA NO AR for a month : me , my husband and our two little daughters. We had a wonderful time. The place was magical and Jane, the most caring hostess. The house was recovered by Jane and is full of charm and special things. Penedo is a place of beauty with so many enjoyable places and warm people. The view from the balcony is pure overwhelming beauty. Mrs. Fernanda , the house keeper , was always making sure we had all we needed and so was Jane. We were super happy to have the chance of living in such magical place.

                              5 of 5
                              "WONDERFUL ... I so enjoyed my short winter break in Casa nas Nuvens Apartment. Sunny days out on the terrace with an amazing view of the nearby beaches and warm cosy nights with the fire alight and everything I needed to make dinner in the kitchen. I deffinitely recommend!
