AMAZING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children rented this house for our 7 day stay in to attend a family wedding at Colares. Our niece (the bride) visited us at the house and loved it so much, we asked Rita to allow the bridal party to get ready for the ceremony and take pictures at the house before driving to church. The house is charming and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed every part of it: efficient kitchen, comfortable living area, dining room, sun room and bedrooms. We particularly loved sitting outside while the children played in the yard and enjoying the beautiful view of the palaces both in daytime and lighted at night...this is really a great asset of the house! The location is great, close to Sintra but in very peaceful surroundings. There are some very good restaurants nearby and the tiny bakery/coffee shop/minimarket across the road was extremely convenient for a good cup of morning coffee and staple items. The pool was very well kept and a service man came everyday to clean it. We had a small problem with the shower head in one of the bathrooms and it was solved very quickly and efficiently by this gentleman. We do not hesitate in recommending this house to have a marvelous stay in this beautiful country, and we look forward to having another opportunity to enjoy it again in the future. Thank you Rita for keeping your house so nice and welcoming!

Charming property with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of four, such a beautiful house and scenery. Could easily have stayed as two families, as there was plenty of space. Clean house and the gardens well maintained. Lovely to sit both outside and inside to enjoy the views, especially of Sintra Palace! Lisbon only half an hour drive with beaches within 15 minute drive. Found a good base to get to where we wanted to visit. Will look forward to returning.

Gorgeous house in a gorgeous place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week here! The house is fantastic - the photos don't do it justice - and Sintra is beautiful. Make sure you take a trip to Praia Adraga - the most incredible beach and only a 15 minute drive from the house.

A great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this great property. Plenty of space & had all that we needed. Head up the road & take the tram to the beach. Rita was very kind & took us to the grocery store for our supplies. A car might have been handy but Sintra is not a place where I would recommend driving.

Wonderful villa with magical castle views

  • 5 of 5

What a brilliant place to stay with friends! We were a group of seven and we spent a wonderful week at Casa da Rita, using it as our base to explore Sintra's fairytale castles and the beaches around Cascais.

The villa had plenty of room, all the comforts we could want and a superb view of the Moorish Castle and Pena Palace. We will never forget sitting back each night looking up at the castles, all lit up and sparkling on the mountain crest.

Rita was fantastic to deal with, organising a truly memorable meal of typical Portugeuse food and wine for us as a special birthday lunch in the gardens of the villa. Chef Rui and his partner Elizabete came to the villa and prepared a beautiful 7-course meal that celebrated the best of Portugal. Their cooking, friendliness and enthusiasm helped create a wonderful atmosphere - delicious food married with different Portugeuse wines and a commentary provided on each course. Superb!

We also enjoyed the little shop down the road with lovely inexpensive wine, crusty bread and welcoming shopkeepers.

We found the villa to be just as described in the listing description - a special house in a special position, with a well-equipped kitchen, great wifi, a shady garden with inviting swimming pool and plenty of room. We had a car but mostly walked to the bus stop to take the bus to Sintra or the beaches.

All in all, Casa da Rita had everything for a truly memorable stay in the Sintra area.
