Great location and characterful property
The property is in a great location for exploring the Sintra region: near the beaches and Sintra itself. It’s full of character and surprisingly spacious, with plenty of room for a family. We didn’t make as much use of the patio areas as we expected because of the very strong Nortada (north wind) all week, and the fog would sometimes descend by evening. But in normal weather they’d be great. We enjoyed walking to Ursa beach (steep) from near the Cabo and would highly recommend Peninha for a view and somewhere quieter than Sintra! You can do some forest walking there too. Driving in and out is tight but we were fine with a biggish car once someone had guided the first time. We found the supermarket in Colares had everything we needed and the street market in Almoçageme (Sat/Sun) was excellent (it’s on the main road, not in the village!). Enjoy!
Very beautiful house full of nice details, well equipped, clean, comfortable beds, great hospitality and communication from Yasmine. Obrigada!
Lovely cottage very quiet and cosy
We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely cottage. It is beautifully appointed with quirky ornaments and paintings everywhere you look. I believe it was the home of one of the members of the family that own the properties Turzain on Owners Direct and has left all the personal touches. This makes it very homely. The kitchen is lovely and well fitted out we cooked some lovely meals there as well as eating out a lot. The previous review is correct that it is up a mountains so it is windy and misty but sitting on the terrace you are below most of the wind but have the full heat of the sun. You will need a light jacket and cardigan especially in the evenings. The garden is lovely with strawberries and limes and lovely flowers.
Zain and her daughter Yasmin are always available to help if you have problems. We had a couple of lovely evenings lighting the fire in the sitting room (very romantic) This is a holiday we will remember.
ALWAYS HIRE A SMALL CAR VERY NARROW ROADS AND PARKING!
Thank you Zain and family
Stunning cottage full of style & charm
A perfect village hide-away, all spot-on and as described by the owner. The cottage is lovingly and elegantly furnished, it was spotless & felt like being in someone's home. Zain was a thoughtful and generous host, the fridge was stocked with local delicacies and there was ample fruit and vegetables to get us started. She also provided us with many useful tips of what to do and see and where to eat. Great views from the terraces and the open fire was welcome on cooler evenings. A gem.
What a lovely Cottage! Heaven on Earth...
I spent a week in this beautiful Cottage with my parents and it was a wonderful time for all of us. First of all because of the high quality of everything inside the house. Excellent bedrooms, very quiet and full of sun, during the day, with an unforgetable view; excelent living room, kitchen, bathrooms, patios, etc. Everything is decorated with such a good taste... And everything reveals the owner's touch, the owner's kindness and generosity towards guests! The house has 3 patios with exceptional view to the sea and the sunset. Since Azoia may have some cloudy mornings, the house is very cosy and has a big fire that we used once, just for the pleasure and comfort of being seated by the fire, seeing the sea... The house is full of beautiful details and has the best comfort ever. If it's hot outside, the air conditioned works perfectly; if it's cold outside, we can heat the house and seat by the fire. The 3 patios are places where we feel like in heaven. It's difficult to choose the best patio... The Cottage has internet and all the devices and gadgets that allows being connected to the world, and for me (as a journalist and writer) this Cottage was so cosy and so beautiful, that I want to go back a lot of times. To spend there good time with family, but also to write there and to walk around, since the Cottage is really well placed, in the center of a small village, where the neighbours are pleasant and discrete. Me and my parents we fell in love with the owner of this Cottage and with the house, and that's why I'm writting this review: to share with others our wonderful experience. And the dream of coming back very soon!
Spot of heaven in magical Azoia ...
This picturesque Cottage by far exceeded our expectation. We where promptly received by the kind and very helpful owner who gave us all the necessary information we would need during our stay. The sparkling beautifully decorated cottage has been very carefully equipped and prepared with all the amenities one would need plus much more. All rooms have direct access to their own patio or terrace with magnificent sea view which quite honestly the photos do not do justice. We would not hesitate to recommend this place and would definitely come back again.
