Our stay at the cottage (5 people, 24-59 years old, 6 days) was wonderful! Penedo is a charming little village up in the mountains and easily reachable from Lisbon via a rental car. We loved the quietness and closeness to the beaches and you can get everything you need in close-by Almocagme The house was exactly as described and check-in and communication with Ian was very easy. The kitchen is amazingly equipped and depending on the time of the day you can choose on which patio you want to enjoy your meal in the sun. Spotlessly clean and enough towels and blankets. You can notice that the house has a soul and the owners paid a lot of attention in decorating it and making it feel like a really home. We would come back anytime again, thanks for letting us stay!

"Casa de Encosta" (nam of the house) is a very beautiful place and so were its surroundings. It is placed in the very small, authentic and charming village Penedo, in the beaituful moutains of Sintra. The house is perfect for a relaxing time in a peaceful atmosphere. The interiour and exterior of the house show great attention to the detail and you find everyting you need. There are three little terraces with amazing views to the mountains. Because of the climate of the region, the house is a little damp, which did not bother us at all. There is a dehumidifier inside which can be used (we did not need it at all / Thanks to the climate, the region is so beautiful ;-) The communication with Ian was perfect. He gave us very helpful and detailed information about the house, near by restaurants / beaches / markets and things to do! That was perfect! We rented a car, so getting there was easy for us. I can imagine that without a car getting there it is not so easy (but since we had one, I do not know about the busses etc....). I can recommend this place very much!
