Property Details

  • Category: Villa
  • Beds: 5
  • Baths: 3
  • Sleeps: 10

This villa is set on a massive family “Quinta” (private domain) of several hectares overlooking the Sintra hills and, at the very top, the majestic Palácio da Pena. The house and kitchen are fully equipped, with the use of cable TV, Wifi, and the possibility of having in-house catering upon request.

It holds a total of 5 bedrooms, of which there are 2 doubles, 2 twins, and one with bunk-beds. Should you need it, all baby equipment is available, such as a baby bed, changing table and high chair.

It also comprises 1 dining-room, 3 lounges of which one is a unique and charming indoor / outdoor veranda-dining-room that can either be closed off by its large windows or totally opened up, as if a continuation of the lush garden itself, ideal for summer days and evenings.

What makes this house so unique in its beauty is its enchanting south-facing private garden of about 2500m2, onto which several of the bedrooms open directly. Flawless and well maintained, it offers you a sense of inner peace and serenity. Walk out into the garden gem and awaken your senses to the sweet sounds of birds and smell of flora that reign amongst tranquility.

There is a fenced 4-by-7-metre pool at your disposal for a cooling off, as well as a sheltered patio by the pool with changing rooms and bathrooms. Once you’re there, you simply will not want to leave!

The family members live in the houses scattered around, as well as in the annex next to the house, so if you need any local tips or advice, you’ll have plenty available at just an arm’s reach!

This stunning Quinta is set on the outskirts of the sweet and typical Portuguese village of Colares, with its antique dealers, local markets, craft shops, friendly cafes and own local winery! In the last few years, a more “alternative” vibe has started emerging, where local markets with organic produces are held regularly, as well as permaculture workshops, equestrian events, yoga retreats, alternative healing centres, and many cultural visits all being available nearby! The beautiful beaches of Praia das Maçãs and Praia Grande are just 10 minutes’ drive away, and the historical town of Sintra (declared by UNESCO as World Heritage) with all its enchanting palaces and gardens is less than 10 minutes’ drive away. The picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar, perched on top of the ocean, is 15 minutes’ drive from the property, as is the famous Cabo da Roca, the most Western point of the European continent. Surfer's paradise Ericeira is within 20 minutes reach by car.

Cascais is about 25 minutes away, and the bustling capital, Lisbon, just over half an hour's drive away. Alternatively, if you want a more “local” journey into the city, you can also hop onto the train at Sintra and arrive in the hub of Lisbon, “Rossio”, 30 minutes later!
