Praia das Maçãs
The name of this beach is due to the fact that the river will recede have gone there in times among apple orchards , so the fruit when it was ripe , fell into the water and went to the beach . Around the beach about 250 meters, settled several trading houses , from restaurants to cafes and bars as well as homes of local crafts , so the place became a meeting point for sintrenses that leverage its terraces and excellent food , summer or winter . Along the beach , there is a saltwater pool , a playground and picnic area . In extreme beach or on the left side or the right side, there slabs / rocks which can be fished with some stability. Beyond the beach , one of the attractions of this area is the famous tram ride , active again . The route starts in the Estefania area, near the Museum of Modern Art in Sintra , Colares goes through and ends with stop seaside , on Praia das Maçãs .

Very nice house, we loved the terrace for a breakfast in the morning with a view on the ocean and the village is also beautiful. The kitchen is equiped with everything you need. 2 beaches in walk-distance with good waves for surf and a nice surfschool in the village. Perfect :) !
Een heerlijk rustig gelegen huis in het aardige dorpje Praia das Macas. Het is eenvoudig ingericht maar alles is aanwezig. Fijn dat er ook een dakterras is wat gebruikt kan worden.vanuit het huis kan je mooie wandelingen over de kliffen maken langs de oceaan. Sintra is heel goed bereikbaar.
Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad.
Viaje familiar en septiembre. Estuvimos bien y tranquilos. La casa es pequeña, estaba limpia aunque un poco vieja. Había cosas rotas y el sistema eléctrico daba un poco de miedo. La azotea estaba bastante sucia cuando llegamos, así que aunque desde allí se veía el mar no la usamos apenas.El resto muy bien. A la dueña no la conocimos, pero un tal Carlos nos atendió e informó.El wifi es comunitario, se iba con frecuencia y había que salir al patio de entrada para poder conectarse.Con una excelente ubicación, muy cercano a la playa.
Communication was perfect, all information precise and helpful. The stay at the "musician flat" opened insights into the "real life" in Lisbon and Portugal which would not be possible in a commercial hotel or pension. Thanks a lot for the friendly talks with Ivana and her nice daughter.
Thank you so much for having us! we had a great time. Madalena and her friend were very kind and tried to explain everything to u as good as they could. Fortunately one of our friends spoke Galician and that helped a lot.
The kids had a great time playing at the pool and also playing billiard.
Hopefully we can come next year.
Thank you Isabel and Madalena for everything. Hope to see you next year.
(maybe with my family from the Netherlands and my sister from Germany ( whoes children where really jealous at us staying there at the big waves( They love to surf)
thanks again for everything
After our Booking it was difficult to get the host and at end we got our host over Wimdu. It is the worst place to stay in Lisbon. All things were so dirty and full of dust. There was no Wardrob in the room for cloths. Kitchen und Bathroom were so full of dust and smelling bad. We reccommend who wants cleanliness not take this accomodation.
Isabel's daughter Ivana was very friendly and was in the appartment when we arrived. So there were no problems with the keys. The appartment was nice and clean.
Communication with Isabel was always good and quick. Everything was ok for the arrival. It is very central and good for a short term stay: I would returN Thanks
After arriving late, wich was no problem, we arrived at Isabel's home.
The room is small, but if you are only there to sleep and see Lisbon it is a nice place to stay.
The tram stops in front of the appartment, easy acces to the city. I would recommend buying a 24 hour public transport card at a metro station for €6 to use the tram/metro/bus. The public transportation is easy to use if you get the hang of it.
On the end of the street on praca Luis de Camoes there is a very nice place to have breakfast called 'A Padaria Portuguesa'.
Isabel was a great host. We were a little bit to early, but that was no problem for her. She is very hospitable.
The place was nearby metro Arroios and close by the centre. She gave us some good tips about local places and restaurants. We loved our stay by Isabel. If we or our friends want to visit Lissabon we recommend Isabelle:)
