I can honestly say that it is the best apartment we have stayed in as it's very much a home rather than a 'holiday apartment' and has all the facilites that you would expect from a modern home. Being close to Sintra town, everything is within walking distance including quite a few restaurants and a reasonable supermarket which is only a 10 minute walk away. This is our 5th visit to Sintra as it's a place that we love and we plan on returning next year - hopefully to stay in this lovely apartment. Isabel is a delightful lady and could not have been more welcoming. Thank you Isabel!

It is beautifully appointed with quirky ornaments and paintings everywhere you look. I believe it was the home of one of the members of the family that own the properties Turzain on Owners Direct and has left all the personal touches. This makes it very homely. The kitchen is lovely and well fitted out we cooked some lovely meals there as well as eating out a lot. The previous review is correct that it is up a mountains so it is windy and misty but sitting on the terrace you are below most of the wind but have the full heat of the sun. You will need a light jacket and cardigan especially in the evenings. The garden is lovely with strawberries and limes and lovely flowers. Zain and her daughter Yasmin are always available to help if you have problems. We had a couple of lovely evenings lighting the fire in the sitting room (very romantic) This is a holiday we will remember. ALWAYS HIRE A SMALL CAR VERY NARROW ROADS AND PARKING! Thank you Zain and family
