Fabulous house for a group
Of 4 couples
We thought the house and pool were great for our needs
You certainly need a car to
Go around the area but the bus to Sintra and train to
Lisbon were easy to


Friends from St Albans, United Kingdom Aug 2016

Four of us stayed in the property and it was very spacious. We particularly enjoyed the pool area and table tennis table. We would absolutely recommend this to groups of friends and families.


Friends from Rutin, United Kingdom Jun 2016

Lovely big property, friendly owners, very clean, always a spot for sun or shade in the large gardens. Lovely swimming pool. Would return.


From Bucharest, Romania Jan 2013

We had a great time in Sintra. Anthony was very kind.
The villa had enough room for our group of 10. We used the grill, oven, dishwasher - all worked very good. The rooms were heated by air conditioning, which was fine. The garden looked nice, but we didnt have enough sun to truly enjoy the garden.
The location is close to Sintra and Cabo da Roca due to the fact that we rented a car, we could visit the surroundings and went also up to Fatima.
We recommend this villa for your Portugal trip, it offers good facilities and is close to the main attractions in the area.


From Manchester, United Kingdom Sep 2012

All 10 of us were happy with the villa, the space, the homely touches and the facilities. The bedroom under the main living space is huge and private accessed from outside near the pool. The seperate twin room down the side of the villa perfect for teenagers. Enough space for everyone. Make sure you go in the shed to the side of the drive, there you will find a washing machine and dryer, spare toilet rolls etc.
Antonio came a wealth of information, very friendly nothing was too much trouble. My only gripe more wardrobe hanging space please, and more oven shelves and oven trays. Cars are necessary. The walk to Sintra uphill but worth it.


From Balham, United Kingdom Jul 2011

Villa is very well appointed and our party of 10 had plenty of room - Ive never seen a property with so many different places to sit out! The mid-week clean was an unexpected bonus. I would perhaps suggest that the property description could be more clear that the bedrooms with separate access are not accessible from the inside of the house. This wasnt a problem for us with older teenagers but could potentially pose problems for families with younger children. Loved the area - the villa is ideally placed for a mixture of city/palace/rural/beach holiday.

I would like to thank you as we had absolutely wonderful holiday in Casa Monserrate! The village was charming and we got around to see most of the sites, beaches as well as Lisboa. We all fell in love with Sintra area and look forward to returning sometimes in the future. The house was wonderful. The pictures really did not do it full justice! We fitted in just fine even though we were 8 adults and 2 children. Absolutely superb and relaxing 10 days that we will remember long time in the future! We really found it hard to think of anything negative - it was all so perfect! Tanneraho Family, London

Thank you for such a fantastic stay in your beautiful house - we have commented many times that we would love to live here if we made our fortunes. The house is perfect - clean and well equipped with a fabulous pool, which we all, especially the baby of the party have thoroughly enjoyed. Yhank you for recommending the restaurant Adega das Azenhas, it was delicious. We also really enjoyed the palaces, particularly Quinta da Regaleira and our favourite beach was Praia da Adraga. Thanks again wed love to come back. The 9 of us, Sheffield, UK
