Exclusive Villa with stunning Pool and Garden, 5 Minutes to the Beach

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
4+1 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, pool, close to the ocean

For those looking for a private villa, completely secluded from the hustle and bustle of town and yet only a minute drive from the typical and arty village of Colares, this is the place to be!

This refined Portuguese home is tastefully decorated, with unique pieces from all over the world. The modern kitchen is fully equipped, the bathrooms are kitted with top quality fittings, and Cable TV, Internet Connection as well as pool and garden maintenance are all included.

The house holds a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in main house, as well as another bedroom and bathroom in the pool house by the pool. It also comprises a lounge with a dining area, and a second, charming indoor/outdoor lounge-dining-room that can either be closed off by its large sliding windows or totally opened up, as if a continuation of the garden itself, ideal for ‘al fresco’ meals on summer days and evenings.

The flawless and well maintained garden offers a sense of inner peace and serenity, as well as many 'hidden corners' to 'escape' or meditate. It even has its own 'real size doll's house' for your little ones to play in!

The 5-by-11-metre pool is tastefully designed and, when you lie on one of the designer’s sun beds, you will feel the exclusivity of this place! You can also sit under the pergola by the pool, cool off on one of the cosy sofas in the pool room, read, draw, relax or play one of the various games available.

This is the ideal place for whom wants to enjoy the local culture, surrounded by beauty and nature, right next to one of the most stunning coast lines in Europe. Once you have stayed at the Artist's Retreat, you simply will not want to leave!

This is the ultimate paradise, the ideal retreat for whom wishes to totally relax in a comfortable, beautiful and peaceful environment!

Casa ideal para familias y grupos grandes

  • 5 of 5

Es una casa perfecta, tiene absolutamente de todo, y se encuentra exquisitamente decorada. Tiene unos exteriores muy amplios con un jardín muy bien cuidado, que hace la delicia de los niños, aunque si estos son muy pequeños hay que tener cuidado con la piscina. En definitiva, es ideal. Altamente recomendable.

Owner's Response: Dear Nacho, Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the house so much and it's true, it has everything and it is extremely pleasant to stay in, even in March as you did. I suggest you come back in the Summer to make the most of the garden and the pool ;-). With kind regards, My Friends' Houses

Es una casa genial para disfrutar en familia. Tiene de todo y está muy bien acondicionada- El jardín exterior es perfecto para ir con familias o grupos grandes ya que te da mucho juego, aunque eso sí, si los niños son muy pequeños hay que tener cuidado con la piscina.

Recomendable 100%.

Excelente Casa para Famílias !!

  • 5 of 5

É uma Casa perfeita para passar férias em família, principalmente para que tem filhos ainda pequenos.

Para além da bonita envolvente do jardim, a casa dispõe de uma Piscina com um degrau espaçoso para os mais pequenos brincarem dentro de água. Tem também uma casa de bonecas grande o suficiente para nós pais podermos entrar e brincar com os nossos filhos. É uma experiência que eles nunca vão esquecer !

A Casa está situada numa rua muito calma e demoramos apenas 1min a pé do centro da Vila de Colares.

Owner's Response: Dear Ana, Thank you very much for your review! Indeed the pool and its intermediary, hollow step are ideal for the smallest children. The miniature "doll" house is also a success and we've had many a kid hiding there on the day of check-out, not wanting to leave it! We hope you will come back soon to make the most of the garden and this lovely house. My Friends' Houses

The pictures don't do it justice!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation week. The house had everything we had expected: privacy, comfort, a beautiful garden and pool. The bedrooms were very cozy, 2 with their one private bathroom, and the kitchen is full equipped. There was nothing that we missed. The area around provide us with all the necessary amenities: supermarket with fresh bread, vegetables and fruits, nice typical coffee shops with all the portuguese tasty pastries, and very close a nice local market to buy fresh fish. The house must be also great in the winter if we consider the big fire place and the big window in the living room. We definitively recommend this house for the location, for the comfort and for the privacy.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lisbon, Portela at 30 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Colares Nearest Train : Sintra at 10 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : IC16 at 20 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Praia das Macas at 5 Kilometres Car: recommended

Colares is a sweet, typical Portuguese village, located between Azoia and the enchanting town of Sintra, reinvested in by artists, antique dealers, local markets, friendly cafes, as well as having its very own 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 3 minutes’ drive away, and the historical town of Sintra (declared by UNESCO as World Heritage) with all its palaces and gardens is less than 10 minutes’ drive away. The picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar, perched on top of the ocean, is just 5 minutes’ drive from the property and Cabo da Roca, the most Western point of the European continent, a 10-minute drive away.

Surfer's paradise Ericeira is within 20 minutes reach by car.

Cascais is about 20 minutes away and the bustling capital of Lisbon just over half an hour's drive. Alternatively, if you want a more “local” journey, you can also hop onto the train at Sintra and arrive in the hub of Lisbon, “Rossio”, 30 minutes later!
