About Jane Doody

Having travelled around the world... I was fortunate enough to find my "utopia" in Penedo...A small friendly village near to beautiful sandy beaches, an abundance of fresh unpolluted air and water from a natural source, set high in the Sintra mountain a protected Natural Park (UNESCO) and yet just a half hour drive from the capital city of Lisbon. The perfect place to bring up a family... my two sons grew up in the village and went to local schools. Casa no Ar was the family home full of happy memories... big Christmas trees and chestnuts roasting on an open fire... and summer days by the pool or at the beach. I now live next door and my sons are grown up... one in the wine and catering business, the other a web designer.

Now I am happy to be able to share my much loved home with other

Why Jane Doody chose Sintra area

Bought as a ruin in 1979
