Our stay in the house was fantastic. The house is a bit old but spacious and very charming. The pool was clean and well maintained. And the kids loved it! The house is very close to Sintra which has a lot of great tourist attractions that is not to be missed. There is a bus stop near the house from which you can take any bus to Sintra. The trip to Sitra only takes about 10 minutes and the busses leave 3 times/hour. (You buy the tickets from the driver) André was a great host. He greeted us at the house with some port and cheese and then gave us a tour of the town and the beaches. What else could you ask for! We much recommend this house.

We had an amazing stay at Andrés villa in Colares! We were very warmly welcomed with cheese and port bij André. The villa is totally unique: packed with amazing art and furniture. Some things are old and quircky but we fell in love with the uniqueness and personality of villa do Alto. The garden, location, views and swimmingpool are amazing/great. Sintra and the coast are great but a lot of times we just wanted to stay at the swimmingpool and enjoy the views and garden.

Durante a nossa estadia, uma semana, ligou-nos algumas vezes para saber se tudo estava bem e se necessitávamos de alguma coisa.

Wir hatten eine großartige Zeit und wurden herzlich von André begrüßt (mit Portwein und Käse) und betreut (telefonisches Anfragen, ob alles funktioniert etc.). Das Haus ist eindeutig etwas für Kunstliebhaber, voll von gesammelten Bildern, Skulpturen und Antiquitäten. Es ist etwas in die Jahre gekommen und hat seinen eigenen Charme. Das Grundstück, der Pool und der Ausblick in die Berge von Sintra sind absolut umwerfend. Wir hatten manchmal gar kein Bedürfnis diesen zauberhaften Ort zu verlassen.. auch die Lage des Hauses ist ideal um die phantastische Umgebung mit ihren verzauberten Wäldern und Schlössern zu erkunden. Wir sind begeistert und empfehlen das Haus unbedingt weiter! Danke an André und seine Familie!
