Approximately 10 minutes' drive away is the World Heritage, historical and elegant town of Sintra, once the holiday haunt of Portuguese and European nobility. William Beckford, Lord Byron as well as several illustrious Portuguese writers have lived there and written extensively about its beauties. Visits to the National Palace, Palacio da Pena, Moorish castle, Rigolera palace, Monserrate palace with its exoctic gardens designed by English landscapers of the Victorian era, historical churches, ancient convents and other sites of inestimable beauty and cultural and natural interest are highly recommended.
There is also a music festival each summer.

“Fantastic Relaxing Stay”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2016

My wife 2 children and I have just spent a glorious 9 days of peaceful relaxation with fantastic views at Casal Santo Antonio . The Villa is equipped with everything you need .,The décor was very tastefully done and my daughter counted that there were 42 chairs in all ,also WiFi , Dishwasher -Washing machine Tumble Dryer ,American style fridge freezer with ice/water dispenser.James bond style electric shutters which turned the place into a fortress when you went out but also kept the place cool .every thing we needed they had . We spent most of our time around the Swimming Pool (Adults)/ In the Swimming Pool (Kids).The pool has a decked area with loungers and fake grass area with a large table and chairs. The views are stunning looking down the mountainside with the sea in the distance. The are a number of fantastic sandy beaches with rock pools and caves within 5-10 miles . The nearest town is colares aprox 1-2 miles which has restaurant's , small supermarkets with fresh Bread a butchers and deli counter and also cooks rotisserie chicken spicy or plain. The villa is located by driving along a single track winding road up the mountainside into penedo There are 2 café/bars within 100 Meters walk and also a restaurant/shop which we found by chance ,when we saw some locals go through a gate and followed them to a fantastic place which sells and cooks some fantastic fresh local produce at ridiculously cheap prices. You will need to work at communicating if you don't speak Portuguese or Spanish as most of the locals don't speak English ,But they are very helpful loverly people and with a bit of pointing and with the help of a Portuguese phone app we seemed to get on great... We can't find anything bad to say about the place but the following could be an issue for some people The pool wasn't heated but in 30 degrees heat that wasn't an issue for us There is no Air con but the villa was always cool so there was no need for it Wi-Fi (a bit slow but what do you expect half way up a mountain) Expect some close shaves and a bit of reversing when meeting oncoming traffic driving to and from the Villa ,but if you take you time it isn't a problem . All in all we loved the place and would definitely go back.

Owner's reply: Dear Mick, Thank you very much for the lovely review that you have given to Casal Santo Antonio. You have also been extremely generous with your time writing all that information. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we feel rewarded by your most kind comments. Yes, we would love to have you and your family back with us again. Kindest regards, Julieta & Howard
