"Wonderful house in center of old village near Sintra"
The converted blacksmith's house was a delight. We found the place in good order, well-equipped and as-advertised. The village is attractive with a few helpful amenities: a butcher; a mini-mart; and a bakery but we needed to visit the supermarket in Portola (about 7 miles distant) for some additional supplies.There are many good places to eat in the surruonding area and we particularly enjoyed the beach bar at Praia de Adraga and Estalagem de Colares.
The location is convenient for Sintra - with the railway connection into Lisbon - and the Atlantic beaches but a car is essential. Colares is also an excellent base for longer trips to visit the monasteries in Alcobaca and Batalha, Fatima and Obidos.
The house may be unsuitable for the elderly because of steep internal stairs.
Our time in Casa do Ferreiro was regretfully too short but we enjoyed a wondreful holiday and have no hesitation in recommending the house to prospective renters.
