We have recently returned from staying at Casa Buglione and enjoyed our week there. We had arranged a family reunio n with Aussie brother & sister in law + other siblings. The villa was chosen to cater for everyone and was ideal in that respect. There are some excellent restaurants nearby(within walking distance) although only some are listed on sites such as Tripadvisor. The only other comments I would make is transport is strongly advisable although there are frequent local buses into Sintra and if there are sunworshippers then be aware of a strong breeze blowing seemingly constant.
The villa is excellent , tastefully decorated and with every possible kitchen aide available.The owner, Gianpiero cannot be more friendly and helpful. If you requirer a large villa with all the facilities expected the Casa Buglione is ideal.

First time we had a family vacation at this villa in 2012. We loved it so much that we could not resist and planed a second visit the next year. We stayed in Casa Buglione, for one week in Sep. 2013. This time it was with three other couples of friends (8 ps all together). Our group of frieds use to travel once a year for a vacation to many different countries and places. I gave all maximum score to the different categories (cleanliness, facilities, area, value for money etc.) becouse I could not find anything which could not be applauded. And this includes the owner Gianpiero with his lovely personality, keeping everything in shape, giving excelent recommondations about the area and who became very soon a good friend of ours.
All in all Casa Buglione was one of our best choices ever.
I have no hesitation in highly recommend this villa to make a wonderful vacation in Portugal.

An excellent villa with great accommodation and excellent hosts who could not have been more helpful. The location was excellent with easy access to Sintra and the surrounding sites. There were a number of good retaurants either in walking distance or within a few minutes drive. We have stayed in a considerable number of villas in Europe and this was one of the best appointed. We would certainly recommend it to others.

The Villa was very well appointed and provided us with a wonderful home away from home. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. The ensuites were large and exceeded our expectations. The full working kitchen allowed us to apply our cooking skills to their utmost. The dining room set a perfect tone for our meals, with great atmosphere. The solarium provided a perfect setting for our end of the day recaps. The pool and outdoor areas were exceptional. Secured parking was another great feature. The town of Azoia was charming and the number of top notch restaurants was an added bonus indeed. Gianpiero and Paul were amazing hosts and attended to every detail without hesitation. The location of the Villa is ideal for travelling to local areas , as well as any points North or South. Should we return to this area of Portugal, we would not hesitate in rebooking this wonderful property.

Casa Buglione is a wonderful villa. The house is very well appointed and met all of our needs adequately. There were six people in our party and we all agreed that the house was perfect. The full working kitchen was a treat for all of us. The sun room provided a lovely setting for discussing our daily adventures. The pool was cool respite for the sun. The location of the house allows for easy access to major roads for travelling either north to Porto or south to the Algarve, not to mention all of the beautiful beaches and towns located in close proximity. The town of Azoia is lovely and we enjoyed walking in the surrounding area. The restaurants were all great value for the money and served authentic Portugese food, not to mention awesome wines. Casa Buglione proved to be a perfect home away from home.

28th of June 2006 Review submitted by Norman from Boise, Idaho / USADear Giampiero, We are enjoying our stay immensly. We have been to Sintra, Cascais, and Obidos while boosting your economy with purchases of food, wine, golf and gifts. Most important Casa Buglione is very wonderful and your cleaning service perfect. Thank you for your hospitality.
16th of July 2006Review from Fiona and Alan, from Karori, Wellington / New Zealand..... We have just been looking through our photos of the holiday, and remembered again what a great time we had and what a lovely place Casa Buglione is....... we just wanted to say thank you so much – it’s a beautiful house and we all had a fantastic time there. We’re back in New Zealand now, where it is very cold and wet. We’ll be relying on our lovely memories of Portugal to see us through the winter here!!
Important: all our twin beds are put together forming a kingsize bed.
In one of our large twin bedrooms, at an extra cost we can put an additional bed forming it to a three bedroom if the total amount op people are 9 instead of the usual maximum of 8.
Our village is hanging on the wooded hill of the Serra de Sintra, also known as Serra da Lua The Moon Mountain The coast is 1.2 Km away and offers spectacular scenery with Cabo da Roca (most western point of Continental Europe on a 140 m high cliff) and big sandy beaches (magnificent Praia da Adraga - 8 min. drive -, Guincho with dunes - 10 min. drive -, Praia Grande - 10 min. drive -, Praia das Macas - 15 min. drive -, etc.) partly stretching out below cliffs. Owing to a mediterranean type microclimate, our area has mild winters and an ideal summer temperature which never gets too hot, The months of September and October are usually like a second summer.
