We had a wonderful family holiday here in August 2018 to celebrate both my and my wife’s 70th birthday. Our children arranged with Paulo a delicious wine and bouquet of flowers as a lovely surprise to the start of our holiday. Paulo is very supportive with information and emails to help in arranging your perfect holiday. We loved the house the surrounding area and the warm and welcoming Portuguese people. Sintra, Lisbon and local beaches are all easily reached using excellent local public transport. Restaurants to suit all tastes are available throughout the Colares area but above all for traditional Portuguese fare. The swimming pool and games provided with the house will keep children young and older completely amused.
We were a large group of a couple of families with small children. The house was in a perfect location. Only 5 minute walk to the supermarket and most importantly the morning coffee and pastry :) We didn't hire any cars and found getting around fairly easy as there is a busstop just outside the house and also a tram that takes you to Praia de Macas (fab fish market & beach) and in the other direction Sintra. Paulo was very accommodating in answering all my emails throughout the year in preparation of our large group travelling to the yellow house. The house was very nice , bedrooms very spacious and we all had plenty of space. Kitchen was fully equipped (work area a little small) but the downstairs kitchen & outdoor facilities made up for this. We enjoyed a bbq every night and there was ample seating for the 11 adults in our group. Pool was nice size and not too deep , so the children were able to play all day here with ease. There were plenty of toys, sandpit, swing, slide to keep them entertained. There was volley ball , table tennis and basketball which we enjoyed very much. Helena who came to change our towels /sheets was very hospitable and anything we needed she provided straight away. We would recommend this house to everyone. We had an amazing 2 weeks and hopefully we will get to go back some day. Thanks again Paulo for making our stay pleasurable. We loved our stay at the yellow house!
