21 of us stayed in the yellow house in June. From the pictures and reviews we were expecting it to be great, but it was over and above all expectations! The house is amazing - from the beautiful house decor to the varied activities outside (great size pool, basket ball area, ping pong table, great BBQ and outside seating area...and the list goes on). It's located in beautiful surroundings near Sintra national park which is well worth a visit and very close (less than 5 min drive) to the beach. Paulo was amazing at step of booking and while we were staying. He was so supportive when we booked the villa, quickly replying to emails answering our questions as well as adding detailed descriptions of activities and things he thought we would be interested in. He offered a wine tasting for €25 each where he came to the house and delivered a fantastic session with 15 different types of wine and beautifully prepared Portuguese food, with explanations of each wine and the food- definitely worth the money and was great to get to know Paulo. With a big group of us, we damaged a few things but he was very understanding and gave a detailed breakdown of the repair costs which we really appreciated. There is nothing that we would change about the trip, the beautiful yellow house and the great hosting from Paulo. We are definitely considering returning next year and I would highly recommend the house - perfect for families or big groups of friends (we are students who had just finished university). Thank you SO much Paulo!
The Yellow House in Colares is a perfect location to holiday for large groups of family and friends and Paulo (the owner) is very helpful and welcoming. The house it self is completely self contained with its own pool, games area, BBQ area and play areas for children. Inside the house there are two large living areas, 2 kitchens, beautiful bedrooms with enough bathrooms for all guests. The house is full of charater and feels like home away from home. The Yellow House is situated within walking distance from the local supermarket and about 5 minutes drive from the beech and local restaurants so its perfect whether you want to stay in or go out. Two of our favourite restaurants are Buzio and Nortada where you can sample the amazing local fresh fish and seafood. This is our second year to stay at this property a group of 15 friends (8 adults, 7 children) and I have to say we are already planning a return trip in 2018. Thank you Paulo for a wonderful stay.
