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.

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!

Cosy cottage in beautiful garden

5 of 5
The cottage was very cozy, quite small but was comfortable for the 2 of us. The garden was really beautiful! There were 2 dogs on site, and at first I was quite wary of them, but they had the sweetest nature and were just lovely. The donkey and horse in the paddock next door were also a lovely addition to the property. The beach was only a 15-minute walk away, and there were some good restaurants where we could enjoy the setting sun on the horizon with good food and a lovely wine. The only thing that I could fault was the Wifi which only worked outside the cottage. Also, I missed having a radio. The surrounding area is very pretty and there are many places to walk.
