Our second visit to Casa da Banzao and just as good as the last one.
We used the new outside BBQ area with running water and lights, but not the new wood burning stove on the stairs or the heaters in the bedrooms as it was not that chilly.
Excellent area for walking and we used the book that was in the house, 'Walking in the Countryside'. Most of the walks can be accessed by the local buses and some start from near the house.
We also visited the local beaches, again using the buses, but remember that the winter timetable starts in September!
There is everything you need in the house, and it is very spacious and has lovely sitting out areas and garden.
Very quiet area and a relaxing holiday.

“Wonderful place! Wish I hadn't had to leave!”

Casa do Banzao is amazing. It's was perfect for what we required and I just didn't want to leave. Owners helpful and friendly and even let you use their art materials so you can leave a piece of you there. I had a wonderful time in Colares and I would recommend this place to stay to anyone and everyone. Full kitchen with so many cooking implements, many I wish I had at home. Plenty of herbs and spices etc there so you don't have to pick them up. All I can say is we had a wonderful time here and it's the perfect little getaway venue. Book it now! :D

We stayed here to travel to a family wedding at a nearby Quintra.
Greeted on arrival by owner's mother, Gracia, who lives next door but one. Owner kept us updated after reserving and arriving. Lovely villa some five minutes drive from the two nearby beaches and 20 minutes from Sintra. Very clean house, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Nice touch with local wine and home-made pasties when we were shown round the house.
Good patio area out of the kitchen and a sun trap for breakfast.
All four of us were most impressed with the villa.

“excellent house for a family holiday .............. and such good value”

Stayed here for a few days in September with our daughter and grandson who live in Lisbon.
I can thoroughly recommend this accommodation for families or for a couple/group of friends.
Lovely house, open plan with wooden floors, tastefully decorated with everything you need .................. and at a very reasonable rent.
Front garden catches the sun in the morning, the terrace and yard in the evening.
Excellent location as we did not have a car with us. We caught the bus to Praia das Macas and Azenhas do Mar. They are about every hour. There is also a bus from the centre of Colares to Cabo do Roca and Cascais. We also used the tram, which only runs at the weekend. We were able to go to our favourite restaurant, O Croa at the top of Praia Grande - a wonderful view and a small play area for children.
Two good shops selling fresh local food and a take away that does delicious chicken.
Excellent restaurant, in the centre of Colares with a large terrace for sitting out in the sun and a small cafe at the bottom of the road
Huge beds and very comfortable.
The owners provided some toys for our 2 year old grandson which were very welcome and he loved the footballs in the garden and the sit on car (though he did fall off this).
The wine cellar in Colares does wine tours and there is lots to see in Sintra.
Probably not a suitable house for the winter but excellent for other times of the year.
