Colourful and full of character with no expense spared and thoughtful elements throughout

5 of 5
Sandra and Eduardo couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. We were greeted by smoked chorizo with traditional Portuguese almond pie baked by Sandra's Mum no less, which was a welcome feast after an early start. The house has everything you could need from things like foil, spices, olive oil and basics, to an espresso machine and TWO dishwashers so you don't have to carry plates up and down the stairs. We are most meals outside in the lovely outdoor kitchenette area overlooking the garden and pool. We were two couples with four children and there were toy cars, a playhouse, slide and pool which kept the children happy for hours. (We left buckets and spades behind for future guests too!) The neighbourhood is safe and we didn't feel overlooked despite being amongst other properties. The wee shop in Colares O.Polmarinho, beyond the supermarket is amazing with a wide selection of high quality food and wine. The surrounding area is beautiful obviously and a day out in Lisbon is a must too, although don't try and see the whole city in a day, it's massive! Andraga Beach, Quinta de Regeliera, Pena Palace, surfing at Praia Grande, the Oceanarium, Time Out Food Market in Lisbon and horse and carriage rides in Sintra were some of our highlights. Pool time every afternoon was equally lovely too. We had amazing weather around 23-24 the whole week which is unusual apparently but we weren't complaining! Honestly couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks again 😊�

An excellent villa for a family holiday. The loungers and chairs are all wooden and very comfortable

5 of 5
On our day of travel we received a txt from the owner which was a very welcome and made us even more excited. Mario the owner was at the Villa to welcome us and had all the lights on inside and out the lights in the garden and pool were lovely. The villa is very well set out with 3 different sitting and dinning areas meaning you can catch the sun all day long. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious and comfy with plenty of hot water for showers. The villa grounds and garden are very private with electric gates and it feels and looks like Beverly Hills. The entrance road is very nice and the neighbouring villas are equally high end. It is a relatively short week to the beach. There are 3 lovely beaches within walking distance from the villa. A brilliant family holiday and one we will remember for years to come.
