Style and comfort

  • 4 of 5

The two don’t always go together but here they do! Beautiful home with a fantastic garden and a most charming hostess! Lots of space even for six. The kitchen was wonderful and very easy to work in. Main bedrooms up a short flight of stairs with a bath and a half. The property is centrally located being right between Sintra and all of the wonderful beaches. We were blessed with beautiful weather but it was cool enough that the pool was a bit chilly. We would love to return for a longer stay.

Great location near to Sintra and beaches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa in the second half of August. Wonderful sanctuary from the peak season crowds, fabulous view, beautiful garden, ample accommodation for our party of 6 and large pool. If you want a more rural location but with easy accesses to beaches and Sintra, this is a great place to stay.

Fabulous place for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Heleno is a lovely house with beautiful gardens and a fantastic view across the valley towards the palaces at Sintra. We spent much time sitting on the terrace admiring the view and using the pool. Maria was a very attentive host who clearly cares about the house and her guests. There are two restaurants within walking distance. We would gladly come again and would highly recommend this house!

Perfect House for us

  • 5 of 5

7 of us (4 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed for a week in July. The house is fabulous and exactly what we needed for a holiday. It is clearly a much loved house for Maria and, as a result, it is a fantastic place to stay. Maria was an excellent host.

The kitchen is excellent with a very good range of condiments and basic cooking items.

The bedrooms are great. There are two doubles on the lower level which are serviced by two bathrooms. There is a larger bedroom with 3 beds on the upper level with its own bathroom.

The grounds are just fantastic. The pool is large and was a perfect size for us. The lawn is luscious and the beautiful gardens are extremely well maintained.

There is a fabulous view across to the all the local landmarks (Palacio Pena, Palacio Nacional, Moorish Castle, Quinta De Regaleira, Monserrate, etc)

The bonus for us was all the fruit trees. We were encouraged to eat as many apricots as we could, because they were the trees that were in fruit at the time that we were there.

I would describe the location as semi-rural since it is on the outskirts of the village of Nafarros. We walked into the two restaurants in village. There is a small supermarket in nearby villages.

Sintra is very easy to access (a short drive) and there is a large supermarket there. There is also a large and free carpark at the Portela de Sintra station for access to Lisbon (40 mins by train). The nearby beaches at Praia Grande and Praia das Macas are sandy and clean. We found many good restaurants in the local area.

Best place to relax and appreciate this wonderful villa with it's pleasant swimming pool and barbecue conditions. Superb view with opportunities to stroll, visit palaces, beaches and breathe the pure country air. In 25 minutes we reached the centre of Lisbon with no problem. We will surely come back next year!!

A beautiful villa with a lovely large garden and land. The pool is a nice size with a water jet.

  • 4 of 5

The villa itself is very attractive with all that is needed for a comfortable stay. The views across the valley to the hills are stunning and many of the sites to see in and around Sintra such as the Pena Palace can be seen from the villa. The garden is lovely and is ideal if you wish to have a quiet stroll around the grounds. The pool is a good size so that you can exercise doing lengths or just relax. The nearby beaches are stone free and extremely clean and are ideal for surfing, being only 10 - 15 minutes away by car. Maria met us at the villa and explained everything we needed to know and was very helpful, as well as being only a phone call away if needed, a very nice lady. All in all we had a lovely time and would like to thank Maria for her the use of her villa.
