We had a warm welcome with excellent communication on where to find things and also tips on where to go. The house was very well prepared, clean and well maintained. It is bright, modern and spacious - we stayed there with two families including five children. The views from the living room and the terrace are magnificient. A very good place to stay - we will come back someday.

Very clean. Located in beautiful old-town Sintra with many restaurants and easy access to buses that take you to major attractions - castles, gardens, hiking trails. Maria was very welcoming, always available and helpful. Highly recommend, including Tulhas restaurant just around the corner and Nelson's hospitality!
