Some unique foodie experiences and highlights for your stay in Casa José Ricardo:
-- COOK Learn how to cook a typical Portuguese three-course meal, without leaving Casa José Ricardo! A professional chef comes to teach you all about ingredients and preparation during a private cooking class in our kitchen.
-- WINE Join the vintners at the local adegas and taste one of the rarest wines in the world! The village of Colares and adjacent parishes between Cabo da Roca and Magoito form Portugal's smallest and probably oldest demarcated wine region - since 1908.

This is a non-smoking property throughout. Babies and children are welcome. There are beach-towels in the house which you can take to the beach, but please can you wash them the night before you leave and hang them up outside kitchen window or on the towel rack (to help me manage the volume of towels washing).
There are usually a number of basics in the kitchen, including tea, olive oil, vinegar and different spices. If you notice that something is getting low or missing, either replace it or leave me a note.
If you'd like to bring a pet, please ask me.
In respect for our neighbours, quiet time is after 10pm, please.
Please do not let more people stay at our house that you have booked. If you have last-minute additional guests, get in touch with me. Otherwise this leads to immediate cancellation with no refund.

I am originally from Germany but have lived in Portugal since 1997 with my family. I absolutely love Sintra and its surroundings. I'am happy to share recommendations on favorite beaches, restaurants and special places to see in the area, if you wish. I like my guests to relax and enjoy their holiday from the first minute on - and this is why I try to make sure the house has all the comfort they need to feel 'at home'. Portugal is a great country to discover and Sintra has many hidden treasures.
