Guaranteed not to be Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed one of the best holidays that we have ever had in Casa do Pego. The villa itself cannot be faulted. The clever design means that there was lots of space even for 6/7 of us. The kitchen is well equipped, bedrooms are spacious and the terrace, second living room (outside) and the downstairs games room and pool give an extra dimension to what is one of the best laid out buildings that we have ever stayed in.

What really makes the place extra special is the brightness, a multitude of big windows and glass doors – most of which can be opened wide, to permit guests take in the private grounds/courtyard and the beautiful views beyond.

It has all the facilities and equipment needed for an enjoyable holiday, is only minutes away from the village of Colares where there are butcher shops, food stores and restaurants and even closer are the restaurants of Praia Grande and the excellent A Toca de Júlio, which is on the same street as the villa itself. Golf is 25m away – excellent value to be had in Pestana Beloura’s twilight deals.

Gonzalo and his mother could not have been more welcoming and helpful and we will certainly be back.

Casa do Pego is guaranteed not to disappoint. Enjoy it.

A wonderfully stylish retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this villa for its privacy and its proximity to Lisbon and the coast and we couldn't have chosen better. We wanted somewhere that wasn't overlooked, and with all the facilities you need to be comfortable away from home. Casa do Pego was perfect. The villa itself was well-equipped, with modern and clean fixtures and fittings, and it had lovely private grounds and a view to the sea. It was a short drive to the beach and restaurants in one direction and to supermarkets and Sintra in the other. We were a bit wary about the idea of an indoor pool but actually, on windy or foggy days it made swimming much more pleasant, and we whiled away many an evening playing pool or watching DVDs. There were just two of us, but the villa would very comfortably sleep 8 and provides lots of space for hanging out together or separately. I would strongly recommend this villa for a perfect break.

Simply fabulous villa for reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few months searching for the right place for a small family reunion in Portugal. I was lucky enough to find the this rental villa.

Everything was perfect. The owners were extremely helpful in helping us to get setup. Amazing attention to detail from the fresh flowers, to the extra sheets and towels to the Nespresso coffee machine. Thanks for introducing us to all the Nespresso flavors and providing a refresh of capsules!! :-) They had anticipated everything. Even different colored covers (blue and pink) for the baby crib. The refresh of sheets and towels as well as cleaning after the first week was great!! We felt quite pampered.

The heated indoor pool was fantastic when it was a little too cool to head to the beach. My 2yr old daughter loved it. Thankfully the pool is lockable and hence child safe!

The kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed and more. The main dining room was lovely and light with a large table for dinners and breakfast. The fridge is large. Oven. Dishwasher. etc... Pretty much everything one could need.

The 2nd lounge/dining area in the building to the left of the picture was fantastic for entertaining friends who came over for sunday lunch. We used the barbecue too.

The showers had strong water pressure and what seemed like unlimited hot water.

My family loved this house and the location! Everything is nearby to Sintra and to the beaches and even Cascais. The design of the house is perfect.

There were 7 adults and 2 children. Plenty of space for us to all spread out and enjoy!

I definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting a fabulous time. We definitely intend on returning for another family reunion...

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We passed a week in this villa with a group of friends. Everyone really enjoyed this house because it is very spacious and well equipped. The furniture are beautiful , beds and linen new and alle the rooms are large and confortable. It is not far from Lisbon, Sintra and the seashore . It was quite windy so we could not eat outside but we tried the nice barbeque as well. We recommend it and hope to come back some day.

Praia Grande
Car: recommended

The house is located in a walking distance to one of the famous beaches of Sintra, Praia Grande and near the lovely villages of Colares and Almoçageme.

Wonderful beaches, weather & friendly people, combined with traditional, historic scenery, peaceful surroundings, great restaurants & markets, make this beautiful region the ideal location for a truly special and rich holiday, with Lisbon at only 35km.

Sintra was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and offers special and magical places, from palaces and mansions to densely wooded slopes and romantic or exotic parks and gardens. It is imperative to admire the Moorish Castle, the Pena Palace, the National Palace of Sintra and to walk through the cobbled streets of the historical centre.

Within a 10 minute, scenic drive from the house, is the pretty beautiful route in Serra da Malveira that take you to the famous beach of Guincho (surf, Kite and Windsurfing), the golf courses of Quinta da Marinha, and the villa of Cascais.

Golf: Challenge your friends for a little play-off at the Golf course of Quinta da Marinha, in the Villa of Cascais, which has 18 holes with 5.870 metres of unadulterated nature surroundings and major challenges.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior, this par 71 has great views to Atlantic Ocean and Sintra Mountains.

The area, Lisbon Golf Coast, won the IAGTO Award in 2007 - best established golfing destination Europe.
