An amazing week in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Yellow house in Colares for a week and we couldn't wish for a better house. When you swap through the photos you might believe that it can not be like shown but it actually is as beautiful. We arrived at the house and after a quick Check-In, which was absolutely sufficient, we had a look at the house and were stoked. A beautiful garden with everything you might need for a relaxed stay for families but also for a young group like us (20 ppl between 17-18 years old). A badminton field, a basketball hoop, a table tennis plate and and and.

One can find many bathrooms, two dishwasher, two kitchens. So there are no space problems.

The house was clean and neat.

About the surroundings:

In a distance of 200m you get to a small supermarket but there is not that much else in Colares. But it just takes around 15 minutes to get to Sintra. And like 40 minutes to walk to the beach where we took a surf course which was organized by Paulo ( the house owner). Additionally I have to say that I haven't come across a home owner, that put so much effort in providing a good customer service. He helped us a lot during our stay, always responded to a question after minutes and organized stuff such as a surf course, a shuttle service, taxis and so much more.

To sum up I (we) strongly recommend the stay at the yellow house.

The perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect holiday and were so happy that we picked the Yellow House. It can be a little daunting deciding where to stay, but we couldn't have been any luckier with our choice. Paulo was the most amazing host and the house keeper Helena was brilliant. We went to Portugal with our whole family celebrating a birthday. We later decided to get married, and The Yellow House was where we had our reception with a laid back bbq.

The facilities in the villa are excellent; we played table tennis, basketball, darts, badminton and pool and then we had the swimming pool on top.

The rooms are absolutely beautiful. The photos do not do them justice at all. The ceilings are really high! The house is great for entertaining and during our stay we had lots of meals outside on the dining table as a large group. The beds were comfy and the rooms are spacious. The location is quiet and peaceful with only a short taxi ride to anything you could want.

We would love to visit this property again and would recommend it to anyone. We were blown away with the kindness we were shown.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison fidèle à la description donnée, située dans une belle région et près de Lisbonne. Il y a de grands espaces, nous étions 17 pers (4 couples avec des enfants de 8 à 20 ans) et tout le monde a été satisfait de cette location pratique, fonctionnelle, très propre. Les équipements proposés, piscine, terrasse couverte avec barbecue, les chambres, salles de bains, cuisines, espaces de jeux sont appréciables. Vraiment rien à redire, nous y avons passé tous de bons moments.

Paulo, le propriétaire est très aimable et est toujours disponible pour donner des informations aussi bien sur la maison que sur les visites et restaurants, et bien d'autres choses et très à l'écoute.

Hélèna, la personne qui s'occupe de l'entretien de la maison est très gentille, serviable et discrète également attentive à notre bien être.

Nous recommandons sans hésitation cette location et espérons nous y retrouver bientôt.

Prestations personnalisées et professionnelles

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la villa de Paulo dans le cadre d'un séminaire d'entreprise pour héberger une équipe de 11 salariés, la moyenne d'age est de 30 ans. La maison est beaucoup plus spacieuse qu'elle ne le paraît. Elle est aménagée et décorée avec goût. Nous avons apprécié ses nombreux équipements: jardin avec terrain de basket, salon de jeu avec billard et baby foot. Paulo a organisé pour nous des prestations spécifiques telles qu'un cooking show avec un Chef, préparation de breakfasts et de panier snacks pour le goûter. Sur notre demande, il a aussi fait chauffer la piscine En mars. Quel qu'ait été notre besoin, Paulo a toujours proposé des solutions adaptées. Toutes les prestations ont été professionnelles et satisfaisantes. Paulo a été particulièrement aidant lorsque nous avions oublié les clés: il a immédiatement envoyé Helena, l'intendante chargée de la maison, pour nous ouvrir la porte, et ce un vendredi soir. Comme Helena habite à proximité nous n'avions pas eu a attendre longtemps. Elle est par ailleurs remarquablement gentille et compétente. Nous recommandons chaleureusement donc la villa, les services apportés par Paulo et Helena, dans le cadre de séjour professionnel pour des petites équipes, en précisant bien que les salles de bain et chambres devront être partagées (demandez auparavant le plan des chambres et salles de bain).

Genial, por todo lo que tiene y por su ubicación

  • 5 of 5

Es una casa grande, con grandes posibilidades, de verano e incluso de invierno. Hemos estado en invierno, pero realmente todo lo que tiene nos hace pensar que en verano tiene que ser espectacular (piscina, gran espacio al aire libre, zona de recreo para los niños, canasta de basket, mesa de tenis de mesa, pista de voleibol,...). En el interior destaca su planta baja, con chimenea, barra, mesa de billar, dardos,..., hemos pasado grandes momentos ahí. Los pocos defectos que hemos hallado en la casa, los hemos comentado con el propietario y nos ha dicho que ya se ha puesto a corregirlos. De modo que genial.

Si la casa está genial, su ubicación no lo está menos. En Colares, con Supermercado cerca, abierto a todas horas, con todo lo necesario en alimentación. Las playas están muy cerca (Cabo da Roca, Praia da Adraga, Azenhas do Mar,...) y por supuesto, el motivo por el que escogimos la casa, Sintra y todas sus maravillas.

Nos estamos planteando volver en verano si las condiciones son similares.

Car: recommended

35 km from Lisbon and its airport, 8 km from Sintra (World Heritage Site), where you have the train station and bus terminal, and where you can catch the bus, taxi or even the picturesque historic tram linking Sintra to the Praia das Macas and that stops right at to the door of the "Yellow House".

One hundred meters away from the house you can find the wineries from the famous Colares Wine, one of the few wine grapes that resisted the phylloxera plague in the late 19th century, that destroyed 90% of the vineyards of Europe.

Yellow House, family home situated in Colares, Sintra, in the coastal zone, is on the main boulevard leading to the beaches of Praia das Macas, Praia Grande, Azenhas do Mar, Magoito and others, easily accessible by car and by public transportation, including the tram that connects Sintra to Praia das Macas.

Four minutes away from the Yellow House will find all the facilities you need for a pleasant holiday: Beaches, tennis school, surfing, football, horse riding, playgrounds, salt water swimming pools with huge slides. Also you can find fish and seafood restaurants, pizzeria, bars, cafes, pastry specialties of Sintra "pillows and cheesecake," terraces where you can enjoy the spectacle of the sea while enjoying a nice coffee or soft drink, pharmacy, clothing stores, crafts, ice cream, mail, newspapers and magazines, plus several mini-markets!

Large supermarkets are a 15 minute drive, as well as Sintra with its palaces, monuments, castles, museums- a city of fairy tales!

Activities and attractions

Yellow House offers very comfortable accommodation in order to relax and also enjoy a privileged position to:

Beaches - P. Adraga-10min, P.Grande-5 min (World Bodyboard Championship), P. Apples of-4 min (fine dining), Guincho (Cascais)-15min (World Cup of Surfing and Windsurfing).

Golf -15 to 20 min-Penha Longa, Estoril Golf Club, Quinta da Beloura, and Quinta da Marinha Oitavos Dunes (one of the top 100 courses in the world).
