5 of 5 stars Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were 5 family members who stayed in the house. The owners were very welcoming and the house itself is very well kept and basically has everything guests need in order to feel at home during their holiday. The location is very good as it is close to Sintra and not far from Lisbon. We stayed the year before in Lisbon but wanted this year to be closer to Sintra and all its attractions. We rented a car and it was easy to park near the house. The view around is mountain view and the village has lovely atmosphere.
We had excellent experience and happy to give this house 5 stars.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 29 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

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.
