Hemos estado conco días maravillosos. Hemos conocido Lisboa Y Sintra, Lisboa es preciosa, los monumentos son geniales. La casa me ha parecido preciosa (Como la casa de mis sueños) la lastima ha sido que hacía fresquito y no nos hemos podido bañarnos en la piscina. La voy a recomendar a todos mis amigos/as.
Espero volver en verano y poder estrenar la barbacoa y la piscina.
We stayed at Villa Sintra Mourisca for a week in October. We had a warm welcome with excellent communication on where to find things and also tips on where to go. The house was very well prepared, clean and well maintained. It is bright, modern and spacious - we stayed there with two families including five children. The views from the living room and the terrace are magnificient.
A very good place to stay - we will come back someday.
Villa Sintra is wonderful bright modern space to be in. It is well furnished and the is a prefect base to explore the surrounding area.
All dealings with Feliciano where great and prompt.
Have stayed in many villa's in Portugal and this is one of the best.
The only small thing I would say is that it would be nice to have some of the subscription Tv channels. I only say this as we stayed over the Olympics and the coverage on standard to was not that great.
We would stay again.
We stayed in the villa after a few days in the hustle and bustle in Lisbon. All Comunications before our stay was prompt and helpful. On arrival we were met by Rita who ran through everything in the villa and the left us to relax in the wonderful property. The villa is well equipped with all mod cons including wifi. Bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent. We didn't use the pool as it was early In the season. Galamares was a ice little town with a couple of coffee shops and a small quiet restaurant. In the area was the main attraction is Sintra which was lovely to see but be prepared for lots of tourists!
We would definitely use the villa again if we were going to visit the area again 5 *
We were a group of six - 2 Adults and 4 kids aged from 9 to 17. Overall, the villa was perfect - it was very clean, modern and roomy. Everything worked perfectly for us. The views from the main lounge are amazing as well as the views of the castle from the rear of the property.
Games room was used daily as was the glorious pool.
Location was perfect - there is a great local restaurant down the road which we ate in on numerous mornings and lunch time. I would advise a car as walking along the road can be a bit tricky but that is not a reflection on the Villa at all. If you want a nice, peaceful setting in short distance of Sintra - then this is it.
This house is gorgeous, perfectly positioned for enjoying all that Sintra and nearby Lisbon has to offer. The house was very clean and well maintained - the kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! The area is quiet and the property enjoys complete seclusion and privacy. Feliciano is a most gracious host that goes above and beyond to ensure you have a brilliant holiday. Our group was departing at different times and Feliciano not only took the later departing group to the station so they could visit Lisbon, but kept their bags in his car and delivered them to the airport later that evening! Would very highly recommend.
