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.

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.

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 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.

Characterful, Quiet and Convenient

5 of 5
This propoperty is an ideal base for a couple to explore the rich and historic area of Sintra. Its a little old bungalow very close to the historic centre of Sintra tucked away down a very quiet residential allay just 50m from all the action. The owners are close buy and are really friendly and helpful. Tips for Sintra: To get to Pena and the Fort take a Tuktuk up the hill for 5 euros each, then walk back down one of the trails. There are buses for 5.5 euros each, but we never saw one which wasn't completely full - so that was not an option. There are no supermarkets in the historic centre, so do a big shop in Pingo's near the train station which is an excellent well stocked supermarket.
