Karin picked me up at the airport and took me directly to a grocery store and showed me a little about Sintra. She is a delightful host and I would recommend this lovely place to anyone looking to stay in Sintra. She also showed me beaches and places that I would not have seen on my own. If anyone wants to talk to me about my stay I'd be very happy to talk to anyone. Again Thank you for a wonderful month at Pied-a-terre.

Superb view with opportunities to stroll, visit palaces, beaches and breathe the pure country air. In 25 minutes we reached the centre of Lisbon with no problem. We will surely come back next year!!

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.
