Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Sintra, Portugal your home away from home

The city of Sintra is hugely famous in Portugal. For centuries, Sintra has been the royal city in Portugal, and the stunning skyline of the town prompted Lord Byron to describe it as a ‘glorious Eden’, and forced UNESCO to name the whole town on the World Heritage List. If you ever get the chance to stay in Sintra accommodation, it will immediately become obvious what all the fuss was about. Picturesque situated between rocky crags on the Sierra de Sintra range with views over the coast, Sintra is an absolutely stunning town in countryside that would rival any region for beauty.

Things to do on holiday in Sintra, Portugal

There are very few people who can resist taking a horse drawn carriage through the old part of Sintra. Walking is another great option, but it is hard to concentrate on where your next foot will fall as you gaze around the buildings, monuments and palaces which make up the centre! The conical chimneys of the Palacio Nacional da Vila which dominate the skyline pinpoint the centre of town if you loose your bearings after a quick tour from your Sintra villa rental. There are a range of lavish palaces throughout the town, each designed to show off the owner’s wealth, the most impressive of which is possibly the Palacio da Pena. The Castelo dos Mouros and the ancient Moorish cistern are worth exploring, but there is so much of value to visit within the town centre, the best way to explore is to simply take to the streets with a good camera and a guide book from the Sintra tourist information office. The pre-historic tombs which can be found throughout the surrounding countryside may not be as visually captivating as the buildings of central Sintra, but they are no less impressive.

Wonderful historic house

5 of 5
Perched on a hillside overlooking nearby villages, the exotic Monserrate Palace, and the ocean in the distance, Quinta Sao Bento is a gorgeous, tastefully restored historic country house. It was the perfect villa for our family and we had a truly wonderful stay. Quinta Sao Bento is peaceful and our time here felt restorative. We loved everything about Quinta Sao Bento, from the secluded location to the cozy and inviting rooms and terraces and the tasteful period decor. The grounds are lovely and the swimming pool enticed us each and every time after our long walks up and down Sintra's cobblestone streets. And Ana, the housekeeper, is so wonderful, a real treasure to be sure! There is only one problem with Quinta Sao Bento, you'll end up falling in love with it (we did) and having a very difficult time having to leave!

Absolutely stunning property!!

5 of 5
The property is extremely spacious. It is well equipped for large groups. It is safe for children to play and there are toys for younger children to play with. It was clean and everything presented to an exceptionally high standard inside and out. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
