Great time in Amazing House
We had wonderful time at this place. Amazing house with a lot of personality in style. Very clean.
Lush, beautiful garden. Cozy eating area. We had breakfast outside every day.
Great location. There is a beautiful beach and a small village with everything you need.
Warm welcoming from Mafalda.
Stylish Home & Gardens with Amazing Views
A beautiful house with loads of style and character inside. It blends beautifully into the incredible garden and has the most amazing views. This is the perfect place to relax, either on the terrace with its views or the beautiful side garden and bbq area which provides great shade under the mature vines. We felt so relaxed in this house from the moment we were greeted by the very welcoming host right up until we left a week later.
The nearby villages have great local stores selling quality local produce, great for the bbq. There are several cafes and places to relax and watch the world go slowly by. There are several great places in the area to eat or enjoy a beer. This is also an amazing area for country walks and great beaches.
Lovely neighbourhood, around the house and the area
We enjoyed our stay. Beautiful environment around the house, the beaches, Sintra and Lisboa.
The welcome was very warm.
Travelling: family of 2 adults and 2 children, 13 and 10.
The good points: spacious, clean and kitchen well equipped.
The bad points: firstly, there was an awful smell from the drains in the house. We had hoped to enjoy the gardens and outside space, however, the only chairs available other than tiny wooden bistro style chairs were deck chairs - so uncomfortable! We were there during a heat wave, and it was extremely hot at night, we found an old desk top fan in the house which we used and asked the owner for another one for each bedroom, unfortunately, none were forthcoming. She advised us to use what I thought was a toy fan - no bigger than 2’’ across which was wholly inadequate. We had to leave the house for 2 nights and check into a hotel in order to sleep! There were no mosquito nets, so windows had to be closed each night as we suffered many bites on the first night with the windows open. The curtains at the windows could not really be pulled open, so views not appreciated. No TV or radio (these may have been absent in the property description to be fair although rather unusual) although plenty of DVDs and CDs on shelves, thank goodness we took a pack of cards to keep us amused. The drive-way shown in the photos is not actually accessible. You have to park outside the property on a very narrow road, as close to a wall as you dare. All in all, sadly, this was not a comfortable stay for us.
Spacious house with a fantastic view!
We had a great time in this house. It looks exactly like it is described, was clean and cozy.
Mafalda was a great host, too.
Not far from it, there is a beautiful beach and a small village with everything you need.
Yet the parking spot and the streets leading to the house are a bit small, so driving could get a little bit stressful after a long day at the beach, but you definitely get used to it after a few days.
All in all we spend great holidays here!
Ein tolles Haus!
Ein ungewöhnliches, wunderbares Haus in einer noch natürlichen , ländlichen Umgebung, von der aus man in Kürze viele sehenswerte Orte erreichen kann.Hier ist ein entspannender, interessanter Urlaub hervorragend möglich! Und Mafalda, die alles managt, ist ein unglaublich entgegenkommender, liebenswerter Mensch, wir werden gerne und auf jeden Fall noch einmal wieder kommen!

The village is absolutely delightful and has long been a very popular summer resort.
Colares is a wine region (DOC), the ramisco vines are some of the oldest in Portugal, known for its deep colour, full bodied red wines that are high in astringent tannins and can be tasted at the Adega Regional in a very beautiful building in the village.
The houses and imposing farms all around Colares affirm this wonderful relation with wine and its production.
