A wonderful house

5 of 5
The house is truly lovely. It is close to lots of the sights of Sintra, but it is peaceful and has spectacular views across the valley to Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle (which are lit up at night). Margarida looked after us really well, going us recommendations about where to visit, where to park in Lisbon, and where to eat at restaurants - thanks! There are loads of things to do - we enjoyed Sintra's many palaces, Lisbon, Belem, Tomar, Obidos and visiting the stunning coastline - our favourite beach was Praia da Ursa. The house is well stocked with everything you will need, and is very comfortable. The pool and poolhouse are lovely, with ample seating, sun umbrella, BBQ, shower, kitchen etc Very highly recommended.
