An excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

Our party was one (youngish) grandpa, three adult children, a son-in-law and one 3 year old grandchild. We all loved this place. The house is large with great facilities, including a laundry room. It was spotlessly clean and tidy on arrival. Towels and some toiletries are provided. We were here during some very hot weather yet the house stayed comfortably cool. The pool is a good size , it was very clean on arrival and is serviced once a week. The wifi service is good. There is even a radio system with built in speakers in some of the rooms

The house is close to some superb beaches and coastal villages. Historic Sintra is a relatively short drive away ( but get there early to find somewhere to park easily) we took a day trip to Lisbon, a fascinating city...take the scenic N247 coastal route to Cascais and a train from there, only about €5 return. Our two cars found car spaces easily on the road that runs alongside the station between the station and the sea front. All day meter parking for around €8. The train runs along on the coast with some good views across the Tagus estuary.

Our host Pedro Jr could not have been more helpful and welcomed us cheerfully when we arrived at around 22.00 due to flight delays. He came up with some great suggestions re local places. One restaurant he recommended in Almogageme, 'Pensao Sisuso' was excellent especially as it provided some good vegetarian option for two of our group.

There are some small shops and cafes ( the shops close by 20.00) in Fontanelas the quiet non-touristy village where the villa is located ( they close by 8 pm) and a large Continente supermarket , open until 23.00, about 15 minutes drive away in Lourel

We've had a great holiday here and to conclude we would all happily stay in this property again, and many thanks to Pedro our host.

Quaint, Unique, Beachy, Perfect. Look no further!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been wanting to go to Portugal for 10 years and we finally did it. With 2 families on this trip (4 kids under the age of 5), there were a total of 8 of us in this incredible house. We searched for a month online for the perfect house and I don't think we could have found better. We got what we wanted: a small town just a few minutes from the busier (more crowded, less quaint but fun) towns. The house is in Fontaneles - a cute town with a fish market, mini mercado where you can get everything from fresh cheese, homemade sausage and all the sweets you can imagine). Also in town, there are 3 cafes, 2 restaurants, a butcher and the most incredible take-out (rotisserie chicken over the grill). No one speaks English except for the incredible owners of the house and it made it all the more authentic. It is remarkable how special the experience was at the house and the town.

The house was perfect. Clean, well kept, all the amenities you would dream of, high speed WIFI, and of course the pool, etc.

Also, in just a few minutes from this house by rental car, we accessed 3 incredible beaches: Azenhas do Mar (picturesque, quieter), Praia Grande (surf waves, surf schools, more tourists) and Praia Adraga (further out there, caves, surf and the most incredible grilled fish we had in Portugal). We went horseback riding at the O Paddock stables in Azenhas do Mar. We went up to Ericeira to surf (location of the first World Surfing Reserve in Europe) and hit a magical stop called Ribiera d'ilhas which is a beach and a surfing spot that was so easy with the little kids. And a day in Sintra as well!

In conclusion: the food was incredible, the house was amazing and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of tourists to make it all feel authentic and special. We will go back. Thanks to Pedro and Pedro Sr. for everything they did for us. They were so helpful in every way. Book this house. Look no further!!!!!!!!

We will be back someday!!!!

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa August 2014, two families of 4. The villa was lovely, spacious, clean and well equipped with everything. The pool was lovely, children loved it, and it is as nice as the pictures. The villa was in a village Fontenelas, a small quiet place, unspoilt and traditional, it has everything we needed groceries, fresh fish, bread etc and a small restaurant. Everywhere we went everyone was so friendly and helpful. We didn't hire a car, we got taxi's to places we wanted to go, and this was fine for us. If we went again which I hope we do, I would recommend car hire. Pedro was

Extremely helpful, through booking, to

Airport transfers to cabs, restaurant recommendations nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely holiday!!!

Splendid stay in Colares

  • 5 of 5

The time we spent in this beautiful house was wonderful. The house is really comfortable and the pool is amazing, just as you can see in the photos. The house was clean and tidy.

The owners were very attentive to any of our needs. They received as with a welcoming basket with cheese, fruits and wine. They even guided as to a very good restaurant near the house, the first day we got there. It was great to meet them. . The house is ideal if you travel with friends or family. Colares it’s a nice town and it’s very close to Sintra, a beautiful city with a lot to see, specially “Castelo da Pena”. Other locations near Colares are Cascais, Estoril and Lisbon. We hope we can go back!
