I am Portuguese and I live in Sintra, in a little cottage next to Casa da Rita from where I am able to help and support holiday-makers.

What makes this villa unique

Sintra is one of the most beautiful and charming places in the world. The house has been interestingly reconstructed within a secure garden with automatic gate entrance. The position of the house enables a great view of the palaces of historical Sintra, approximately 1,5km, at the same time being with easy reach of the many well known beaches of Lisbon Coast, namely Azenhas do Mar, Praia das Macas, Praia Grande, Adraga, Guincho, Estoril, all the way to Cascais. The house has its own landscape garden and swimming pool. A small train travels passing by a children's Science Museum, a riding school, the well know winery in Colares to the beaches at the end.

Quiet, beautiful charming home.

  • 5 of 5

This property is quiet and beautifully appointed. We ate breakfast at the large kitchen table and lunch outdoors on the patio with retractable awning. The pool immaculately clean and the lawn in front extensive. The house offered view of Pena Palaise and the Moorish Castle on the hill. Opposite Caminho da Sapata was a convenient cafe and store. The house is near the Science Museum and a tram stop that will take you to Colares Beach. We used Uber to get around the narrow streets. I compliment Rita on a well maintained property.

Beautiful setting for a multi-generational family visit

  • 5 of 5

The house and garden were a delight for our family of eight, ages ranging from 20 to 80. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms plus the wonderful sun room gave everyone plenty of space. The location for visiting both Lisbon and the coast was perfect. The house has everything you need for dining in or sitting outside near the pool looking up at the castle, beautifully lighted at night. The nearby restaurants also were a plus. There is a shop with coffee, pastries and a small mercado within walking distance. In the future, a house with more places to walk to nearby would be nice, but overall the location was great. Rita was always available and quickly either answered our questions via text or popped over to assist. Thank you very much Rita! Our little group had a wonderful stay at your special place :)

AMAZING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children rented this house for our 7 day stay in to attend a family wedding at Colares. Our niece (the bride) visited us at the house and loved it so much, we asked Rita to allow the bridal party to get ready for the ceremony and take pictures at the house before driving to church. The house is charming and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed every part of it: efficient kitchen, comfortable living area, dining room, sun room and bedrooms. We particularly loved sitting outside while the children played in the yard and enjoying the beautiful view of the palaces both in daytime and lighted at night...this is really a great asset of the house! The location is great, close to Sintra but in very peaceful surroundings. There are some very good restaurants nearby and the tiny bakery/coffee shop/minimarket across the road was extremely convenient for a good cup of morning coffee and staple items. The pool was very well kept and a service man came everyday to clean it. We had a small problem with the shower head in one of the bathrooms and it was solved very quickly and efficiently by this gentleman. We do not hesitate in recommending this house to have a marvelous stay in this beautiful country, and we look forward to having another opportunity to enjoy it again in the future. Thank you Rita for keeping your house so nice and welcoming!

Charming property with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of four, such a beautiful house and scenery. Could easily have stayed as two families, as there was plenty of space. Clean house and the gardens well maintained. Lovely to sit both outside and inside to enjoy the views, especially of Sintra Palace! Lisbon only half an hour drive with beaches within 15 minute drive. Found a good base to get to where we wanted to visit. Will look forward to returning.

Gorgeous house in a gorgeous place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week here! The house is fantastic - the photos don't do it justice - and Sintra is beautiful. Make sure you take a trip to Praia Adraga - the most incredible beach and only a 15 minute drive from the house.

A great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this great property. Plenty of space & had all that we needed. Head up the road & take the tram to the beach. Rita was very kind & took us to the grocery store for our supplies. A car might have been handy but Sintra is not a place where I would recommend driving.
