Stayed for one night for a friends wedding nearby in Colares. Maria was extremely helpful and friendly, and accommodated our early check in and late return on the wedding day which helped us out no end. The villa itself is beautiful, traditional with modern touches, and comfortable. Really well decorated, quiet and tranquil. We did not get to see much of Sintra as the wedding took most of our time, but what little we saw (Sintra centre and the Pena palace) was outstanding in its beauty. Breakfast was fantastic and filling. Hopefully we will return to Sintra one day to explore more thoroughly, and if we do, we will certainly come back here.
