About Jane Doody
I was born in Hereford England...but travelled extensively before I found my 'utopia' in Portugal...between Casa no Ar in Penedo,Sintra (rental property see #73582) and Monte Branco in Monsaraz(rental property # 59751). My children were born and brought up in Portugal; there are still many of their books and games. Anthony (born in 1983) is in the wine business. Francis (born in 1985) is a web designer with lots of famous California film star clients...he is responsable for my own websites...sintralocations and montebrancomonsaraz. Casa no Ar and Monte Branco have many happy family memories for us. Having studied Interior Design it was with great pleasure that I restored the houses from ruins in traditional Portuguese style , and furnished with rustic antiques and lots of "azulejos" It is most satisfying to now share my homes with others!
Why Jane Doody chose Colares
The houses are set in the woodlands above Penedo which is a small friendly village with one shop/bakery, one cafe/restaurant ...with a fountain gushing fresh spring water and unpolluted air of Sintra's protected mountain forests....yet close to beautiful sandy beaches, cosmopolitan Cascais/Estoril and just 30 minutes from Lisbon with all its city attractions. It was the perfect choice to bring up my children...and now my grandchild who can run and play safely in the village square
