Wonderful Garden

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned home after a marvellous week in Sintra at Casal dos Agapantos. We would firstly like to thank Rosa for her prompt and cheerfull help on our arrival, and must also mention the friendliness of the housekeeper, and the wonderful food (especially the cakes) delivered by the caterer.

We were 15 people, 8 of us children, but it never felt crowded. We ate outside on the terrace, and the children enjoyed the wide lawn, the two swimming pools, or huddled on the sofas with their tablets. The temperature was perfect for us northeners.

I have one little quibble, the map on this site shows the house near Azenhas do Mar, when it is nearer Colares, in fact about a 10/15 minutes walk. Colares has a lovely cooperative winery where you can buy local wine. It is a stopping place for the Hop On, Hop Off tourist bus, which stops at all the major tourist sights as well as two bus routes (very helpful drivers). Most important it has a little grocery with all the essentials - great if, like us, you don't have a car.

A wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this house nearby Sintra/Colares. The welcome by Rosa was very friendly and the house is spacious and well equipped. We had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the big garden, the two pools, nice terraces and fireplaces. The children had a great time swimming, playing badminton on the yard and ping-pong in the basement. A beautiful house for a reasonable price!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Hello, myself and a large number of my family stayed at this villa in early october. Its is very difficult to find any faults with the whole holiday, We arrived in the early hours of the morning and had difficulties finding the property (our fault) but Rosa came to meet us, take us to the porperty, show us around and genrally make us feel comfortable. The town is a little bit away from the property but still within walking distance. The Villa itself was spotless and large enough for my family of 12 with ample space to spare. The pool and grounds were fab and very private which was good for us as we had young children with us who could run around without there being any exits. thoughout our stay Rosa and her husband checked on us to see if we needed anything without being intrusive. The cleaner came every other day.

We spent more time at the villa than expected as it was so nice and relaxing. There are some good bars and resturants in praia das macas and we were paying about a third of the price for drinks here compaired to the trip we had into the baeutiful town of Cascais (well worth a visit).

We hpoe to go bake next year. Many thanks to you and your family Rosa.

Mark, Pembrokeshire.

Beautiful villa at a very good price

  • 5 of 5

I will recommend this villa to any friends or family. It is very well presented, spacious, clean. We were 9 adults and 4 children and didn't feel we were on top of each other at all. Rosa was there to greet us and show us around. She is very friendly and polite. She even brought us toys for the children, including inflatables for the swimming pool. The villa is set in a beautiful and large green garden with tall old trees. You could be under the shade or enjoy the sun. It has one adult size swimming pool and one for the children. It was a bit difficult to find, I don't think the directions given were very good. Rosa had to come and meet us to show us the way. It is only about 10 mins by car to beautiful beaches. Our preferred one is Praia Grande.... what an amazing sandy beach, one of the finest I've ever been to. I'm sure you will have an excellent holiday if you book this villa. We hope to come back soon.

Great house with beautiful garden and pools

  • 5 of 5

The Casal dos agapantos is a beautiful villa with a large garden and two nice pools (one for children and one for adults). It is a quiet and confortable place to visit the region of Sintra, close to beaches and not too far from Lisboa Airport (around 45 min by car). We were most of the time outside and we appreciated the large and flowered garden with superb old trees (even the night thanks to floodlights).

We recommend this house for families with children. Indeed, for a group of adults (we were fourtheen), two of the bedrooms are a little bit small but fortunately, Rosa gave us extra beds that we installed where we wanted.

We spent a wonderful week in the Casal dos agapantos and we strongly recommend it.
