“Great cottage in a beautiful and very convenient position”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage was perfect for our needs. It had everything to make our stay relaxing with the additional bonus of a pool. A selection of beaches were 10 minutes away and the historical, world heritage sites around Sintra were all around 20minutes or less. The property is about 45 mins from Lisbon Airport. If you want to discover the area or just have a beach holiday ( although the seas can be rough) the cottage is perfectly situated. The property had beautiful views to the front with a great terrace and enough space to relax around the pool. There are a lot of steps to get up to the property so this might be difficult for some.
Mafalda, our host was superb, she met us in Colares and we followed her to the cottage where she explained in detail how everything in the cottage worked and gave great tips for places to visit. Would love to return, highly recommended

“Perfect little hideaway”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We loved Faramilo!! It was just perfect for two people and was extremely well kitted out. We ate in every night and enjoyed delicious fish which we had bought locally (advised by Mafalda our excellent host). The garden and pool were delightful and you had an amazing birds eye view over the countryside from the balcony. The area around Sintra is most interesting and you are still close to the sea. We were glad we had not rented a larger car than our Punto as the roads are very narrow and the drivers seem to use both sides of the road!! We would love to return here.

“A perfect little cottage in a beautiful landscape”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Faramilo is an utterly charming cottage set in the hills just outside Colares. We spent a week here, and considered it idyllic.
The cottage is clean, everything works, Mafalda the agent is incredibly efficient and nice with it, and we wanted for nothing. Its a short drive to some stunning beaches to the west, and the amazing town of Sintra to the East. And its only a 40 minute drive from Lisbon airport.
I can't recommend this place too highly for a couple.
