We spent a lovely week in Penedo at Ian's cottage. We found lots to do despite some cloudy and very humid weather. The house is really unique and cosy and extremely well equipped and Penedo is a beautiful village in a fantastic location. Definitely recommend the restaurant at Praia Adraga and a trip to the local wine collective in Colares. We had a bit of trouble with the hot water but Ian was really helpful and quick to arrange for someone to come and have a look. Very responsive and friendly host.
The property is extremely well appointed internally and has all you need for a relaxing stay. We were out and about in the Portuguese countryside every day so had little time to enjoy the outside pool and patio. Situated in the small village of Penedo about 15 minutes by car from Sintra, the villa is in easy reach of Lisbon via the regular and extremely cheap train service. One tip on arrival would be to continue on the N247 beyond Colares and turn left for the village opposite the junction for Almoçageme, rather than following Google directions. These take you up an extremely steep, winding single track road with few passing places. We only tried it the once!
