Situated at the heart of Banzão pinewood and with a view to Sintra mountain range, this carefully designed house is the ideal starting point for a memorable stay next to a World Heritage (UNESCO) site.
Just 35km away from Lisbon, 15km from the historical Sintra Village and Cascais and less than 1km away from the small Colares village, this one of a kind region offers you an extensive set of historical and cultural sites (from palaces to gardens and manor houses), wine cellars famous for the Colares wine or an excellent options for the nature lover with its unique landscape ready to be discovered through its many hiking trails.
For the sporting people there’s also no shortage of options with several golf courses nearby, bike riding or beautiful beaches along the coast that have all year conditions to go surfing, windsurfing, body boarding and parasailing.
Last but surely not least, you will not want to miss the wonderful opportunity to try high quality seafood and fish accompanied by a glass of Colares wine at some of the many great restaurants the region has to offer.

I loved the pool (which was salt water) and the house smelled great. The beds were terribly comfy and the TV's are very modern. The location was very private and quiet. I haven't had such good sleeps where I live as at Julias. Julia was very nice and gave us a tour of the awesome house. We couldn't have asked for a better house and hostess.

Thanks Julia for a stunning stay, the house was absolutely delightful. We have rented some places all over the world and your house was certainly the cleanest rental accommodation we have ever rented. It was even nicer then the pictures could show. The equipment in the house is complete; everything you would require is available. The beddings and towels were of a very fine quality and very clean. The salt-water pool is great and we used it a lot, despite the temperature of 15°C. The decoration of the house is stylish and elegant. We had a great and relaxing time in it. We were overwhelmed by the fact that on arrival Julia had arranged welcome local pastries and coffee as well as juice, milk and even some food to get you started! She is absolute great with little details, such as water bottles on the bedside tables! Julia also was absolutely brilliant with her communication. That started with the confirmation, the arrival details, a catch-up email closer to arrival and finally her warm welcome when we finally arrived an hour later because of some problems with the rental car. It is just worth mentioning, that the bathroom upstairs is for short people only, but that is not a problem, there is a second bathroom on the ground floor. The only thing that interrupted the otherwise very relaxing time in the house was the constant barking of all the dogs in the neighbourhood. But over all, we had wonderful 10 days in the house and we can highly recommend Julia’s house!

Beautiful, very clean and good equipped house just made for a couple or family. Great and very friendly communication with Julia, who made our stay even more relaxed. The location is just perfect to discover sintra, the near lovley beaches or Lissabon (35 min). We were very happy and will come back for sure! Thank you very much Julia and all the best to you and your familly!

The house was delightful. It was certainly the cleanest rental accommodation we have ever rented. The house had all the elements one required. The linens and towels were of an especially fine quality. We loved the warm and secluded pool. The house is ideal if you want to just relax - decorated with style and elegance. We appreciated the hostess's attention to detail like leaving pastries in the kitchen with welcome sign as well as water on the night tables - juice and coffee also on hand. Julia was also very forthcoming with her communication which started with the confirmation, arrival details, catch-up email closer to arrival and finally hand over of the rental - we can highly recommend this rental and the process is very pleasant, professional smooth with Julia - Many thanks for a great week!
