A relaxing stay

5 of 5
The apartment was close to restaurants and main attractions and in a very quiet location. We were within walking distance of Quinta da Regalia and Sintra Palace.

Quiet place in a convenient location

5 of 5
My family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed here for 8 days. It’s a very quiet location but convenient to get to the main sites around Lisbon. The train station for the Lisbon service is less than 10 mins walk away and the main Sintra palace is also walkable. If you hire a car as we did, there is plenty of free parking around the house. The accommodation itself is a self contained floor with an independent entrance and the owner lives on the floor below. It has all you would need for a self catered holiday and is clean and comfortable. The only downside we found that it was a bit cold at times but that shouldn’t be a problem in the main tourist seasons. The owner and her daughter are very helpful and considerate: knowing our very late arrival time, they had bread/cheese/ham and a selection of local goodies waiting for us! Would definitely recommend the place.
