Ricardo has an outstanding house 10 min from Sintra and still perfect if you want to relax and stay in the country side. No noises around, a lot of stars and you will fell blessed. Their house is also perfect, but lacked of a heater and a Wi-Fi. We had a problem with the television too, because the remote control had problems. Ricardo don't look his Airbnb to often and this is a bad thing, should improve

Response from Ricardo:
Dear Mr. Tasso, Thank you for your review! We strongly believe that we can improve with all reviews. We will try to explain some issues and you can be sure that some details will be improved. We are glad to know that you have enjoyed the accommodation, location and lack of noise in the area. As you can see in the house description & amenities, the heater is not available. Although also not published, we provide wood for the fireplace, free of charge, to all guests (with no limitations). The fireplace has a heater system connected to all rooms. I´m sad to know that you dind´t enjoyed this small detail from the owner. Nevertheless we will improve our service and we will add an electric heater to the main bedroom. We are truly sorry for the lack of Wi-fi in the rooms area & remote control problems. We have checked today and we have signal in the living room area. Indeed the signal is not so strong in the rooms area and we will make sure that we improve this detail. The remote was changed due to the fact that two buttons were not working. Thank you for letting us know about this detail. Concerning to your last statement, please note that you gave the wrong number in your Airbnb account and you didn´t had internet in your mobile phone. Several message have been send during your stay through Airbnb, with no answer. Furthermore, we didn´t had any feedback from your behalf in order to explain any problem that you might have. As we mentioned before, we strongly believe that we can improve with all details and we will make sure of it. Thank you

Ricardo is an excellent host! He was, from the 1st minute, very helpful and was available 24/7! He also gave some tips about the area. The house is extremely practical, cosy, fun and quite to stay! It's super quiet, close to the beach and Sintra historic center! It's a perfect romantic retreat, a perfect family fun house, a good place to stay if you're passing by and just want to relax a bit!

We actually stayed in another of Ricardo's properties--the Windmill, in Gouveia/Fontanelas. The previous residents had apparently blown out the electricity, and it looked at the last minute as though we wouldn't be able to stay there. Ricardo graciously offered us to stay at Quinta Casal da Torre - Grandson's House, which we accepted. But to our delight, it turned out that Ricardo went out of his way to get the windmill property ready for us, and we were able to stay there after all. So please be aware that this review is for a different property. As I mentioned, Ricardo went to extra efforts to see that our original reservation could be met, and we were delighted with our stay. We were two nights in the house, but we easily could have stayed longer. As other reviewers have said, the property is very charming, with knick-knacks from around the world. We found it extremely comfortable, quiet, and just what we were looking for in Portugal. We had no difficulty housing the four members of our family here. We arrived a little before the house was ready, so Ricardo drove us down to the ocean so that we could see how to get there on our own. We had a very pleasant conversation, and Ricardo immediately made us feel right at home. He pointed out some places to eat in Fontanelas, and we took him up on his recommendations. The grilled chicken was the best we'd ever had, and the restaurant nearby was a perfect way to end our next long day in Sintra. We can not say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at this property. We would very much like to return and highly recommend Ricardo as a host.

As imagens descrevem exactamente a casa, agradável, confortável, acolhedora com quase todas as condições para passar uns dias no campo perto da cidade e da natureza que só em Sintra podemos encontrar. O Ricardo esteve sempre disponível e resolveu todas as questões que foram surgindo, com excepção da lenha ( pois tivemos menos de 10 graus em Março), a casa não tinha cobertores e foram dadas diferentes informações em relação à lenha disponível, pelo que passámos frio. Pontos positivos: localização, óptima casa, optima vista. Oportunidades de melhoria: Banheira em mau estado, sofá com uma grande camada de pó, chão com pó e pelos de cão.
