The villa was ideal for our family holiday and we all have memories to treasure. We were really well looked after by Pedro and his family who were so welcoming and helpful. The wooden villa itself is fully equipped, modern, comfortable and really felt secluded so we were able to enjoy the evenings relaxing on the patio or lying in the hammock.
The location of the villa is perfect and in what feels to be a really authentic area of Portugal though we were able to explore despite not having a car. The nearest beach is Praia Grande about 15mins walk from the villa and down an impressive staircase! There are a number of great fresh fish restaurants along the beach front worth trying. From there you can also hike to Praia da Adraga (approx 25mins) where you are able to see the most spectacular views of the coastline. Sunset is simply majestic! My 6 year old loved it and is still talking about exploring the wilderness and dinosaur footprints! With both Sintra and Cascais also nearby and on a bus route we were not short of things to see and do and will certainly be back!
Clean, spacious bungalow in a calm environment.
Ideally situated for visiting Lisbon and the surrounding area.
Pedro welcomes you in an efficient but discreet way
The icing on the cake : fresh bread delivered to your door every morning and no housework to do at the end of your stay !
Nous gardons un très agréable souvenir de nos vacances chez Pédro et Louisa, très accueillants, toujours prêts à rendre service, répondre à nos demandes et passer du temps avec nous. Merci à Pédro pour la balade sur la falaise au coucher du soleil! La location est très agréable, sur un vaste jardin, très riche en botanique, l'espace autour de la piscine est entretenu avec soin et la possibilité d'utiliser le barbecue et sa terrasse couverte est un plus... C'est une adresse que je conseille vivement à mes amis... C'est un vrai petit paradis!! Situé à 10 min de la plage à pied et à l'écart de la route. Cet endroit est très calme...idéal pour des vacances reposantes.
We really enjoyed our stay in Colares. The place is great, so are the hosts. Warm, welcoming atmosphere, great beaches around. Definitely worth booking!
After a week-long trip over the Europe, we’ve spent a very nice week in Colares, living in one of the Praia-Grande villas. We were here two years ago - and at that time the villas were practically new - all of the furnishing was comfortable and clean, kitchen was well equipped, there was a TV and wireless (avaliable only outside of villa). Every morning we got fresh bread from our hosts, what was very convenient.
Villas are located in the corner of the large garden. The place is quiet, and there is a nice view on the surrounding hills of Sintra. Near the house of our hosts, there is a pool that can be freely used by the visitors of villas, and which we used with pleasure during the hot days.
The location of villas gives a fairly easy access to Praia Grande beach (10 -15 minute walk), and few minutes of car drive, there is a nice market and a grocery, where you can buy good and fairly cheap food - if you feel like cooking something on your own.
Last, but not least, i would like to write about the hospitality of Pedro and Luisa’s family. They were very friendly for us through all the time we were in Colares. They invited us for a delicious diner, and after that even drove us around to show us the neighborhood!
Everyone who would like to visit Sintra probably knows what to see and where to go, but we can recommend visiting magical city of Sintra itself (especially in the evening), Monserrate and it’s gardens, or Cabo da Roca, (and of course the ocean :)
Overall, i would definitely recommend Villas Praiagrande as a place for spending portugal holiday...
We enjoyed a perfekt time at praia grande! The place was just too nice, 15 minutes to the beach, great waves and magnificent sunsets. Our hosts were the best you can imagine and we had verry much fun with them. I ate the best sea food ever and was just impressed by the country.
Have a nice time at Praia Grande!
Ps: all the best to Sir Petro!
