The host was very helpful and the accommodation was comfortable and well equipped. There is so much to do in the area. Lots of historic buildings and beautiful beaches within a short drive. Best to visit Sintra early in the morning because it does get crowded later in the day.

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!
