  • “Amazing stay!”

    Beautiful villa with a lovely host that showed me around the local area. A tip I would recommend is to bring mosquito repellent as I got bitten quite for the few days in lead up to my wedding.

  • ” Grande maison”

    houette et grande maison très fonctionnelle. Le village est très sympa et proche de tout. Merci pour l’acceuil.

  • “Enjoyable stay”

    Spacious property with good facilities. Lovely local village with excellent bakers, butchers and two small supermarkets.

  • “Super villa dans un agréable petit village”

    Nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable en famille dans cette magnifique villa. Rien ne manque, l’endroit est très calme et la piscine très agréable pour se rafraîchir! Il y a tout ce qu’il faut dans le village (commerces, restaurant, café et même centre esthétique pour les massages!!) et les habitants sont super gentils. La maison est située à moins de 3 km de la mer, 15 min de Sintra et 35 min de Cascais. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir!!

  • “A beautiful villa in a great location”

    About 40 minutes in a taxi to central Lisbon. There was a beautiful market within a 5 minute walk of the house that sells everything you would need. We ended up staying around the pool rather than going out on two occasions (was only here for the weekend) because the villa is so nice. Great host, always quick to respond. Overall a great weekend!

  • “Lovely home and wonderful host”

    Ana was so welcoming and friendly. Her home has everything you could need. She also offered many suggestions for restaurants in the area. The pool was very refreshing after a hot day in Sintra. I would definitely stay there again.

  • “Amazing”

    We had a nice time here, everything was really good and the Villa was just amazing!

  • “A beautiful house in a very friendly village with great shops”

    Ana the owner was very helpful and quick to communicate with. The shops in the village don’t take overseas credit /debit cards so make sure you have cash. Very easy to get to the coast and into Sintra. We also took the train from Sintra to Lisbon which was really easy and worth doing.

  • “Amazing holiday, so much space!!”

    We have just arrived back (May 2018) from a week at this beautiful villa, a group of 8 adults. There was plenty of room for all of us to relax without getting under each others feet (three separate balconies!) and the kitchen is huge! It looked just like the pictures when we arrived (if not better). There is plenty of kitchen ware and it was very clean. You definitely need a car to appreciate the region that you’re staying in, Sintra was a wonderful find! There’s loads to do within a 20 minute drive including several Palaces, beaches. The local shop in Janas is well stocked and friendly, there’s a lot of walks to do straight from the Villa. 100% would recommend and stay again.

  • “Beautiful home”

    This is a luxurious and relaxing home in a quiet neighborhood. Ample room to gather people together for activities and meals. Appliances were excellent and we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. The kids loved the pool! We loved walking into the little village to purchase groceries and talk with the proprietors.

  • “Parfait”

    Très belle villa et tres bien equipé.

  • “Wonderful”

    Hi guys remember if u want to have a nice holiday go to the Vila opala it is a nice and clean place and nearby has lots of things like bars, shops and restaurants,it’s a very nice place to stay and has a nice swimming pool i would highly recommend.

  • “een hele mooie villa”

    In de eerste week van juni zijn we te gast geweest in deze villa. De villa ligt mooi rustig in het groen. De kamers zijn ruim en de keuken is goed uitgerust voor wat apparatuur betreft. De eigenaresse doet alle moeite om het je naar de zin te maken zonder dat ze opdringerig is. De villa leent zich ook goed om als uitvalsbasis te dienen om Lissabon of andere plaatsen te bezoeken. Kan de villa iedereen aanbevelen.

  • “Beautiful home, perfect for large families”

    A beautiful home in a great location (if you have a car). All the necessities for children were available such as cot, high chair, plastic dinner ware. It was clean and set up with lots of areas to relax.

  • “Magnifique!”

    Nous avons passé une semaine délicieuse dans la Villa Opala. Accueil charmant de sa propriétaire. Une maison spacieuse, lumineuse, confortable, calme et décorée avec beaucoup de goût. A proximité de la mer, de Sintra et pas trop loin de Lisbonne. Nous avons apprécié les commerces locaux, la gentillesse des habitants, le calme de la maison. Une excellente adresse!!

  • “Exceptional villa, stunning pool and views”

    We stayed for a week in this beautiful villa and enjoyed the most relaxing holiday. As a group of 4 adults we felt immersed in a truly rustic experience of Portugal, in an exceptionally stylish villa. Car hire is essential, restaurants are a 20 minute drive away, well worth the drive. The infinity pool is a particular highlight and the interior of the villa is spacious and well appointed.
