Why Vera / Pedro Barahona chose Sintra area

A propriedade está localizada na área de Sintra, num Parque Natural que permite uma excelente qualidade de vida, tanto para trabalhar como para lazer.

What makes this farmhouse unique

In the rural area of Sintra but very close to the village, its location in a very quiet area, the good organization of the house divisions (all rooms have direct access to the garden) and its garden with very pleasant lawn and pool, provide an ideal spot for an enjoyable holiday.

Its short distance from the village and the mountains of Sintra with its monuments and cultural landscape as well as from excellent beaches, equestrian centres and golf courses, allows you to optimally combine cultural activities with relaxing moments.

Beautiful house, owners wonderfully welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly wonderful house in a very private setting, close to Lisbon, just 15 minutes drive from the stunning hills of Sintra, and 10 minutes from the beach.

The owners were very welcoming and greeted us with local wine, cheese, salami and fresh herbs for cooking. The facilities are spotlessly clean, the view from the many terraces spectacular. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this house.

Beautiful gem owned by lovely folks about 30-to-40

  • 5 of 5

We were at the villa with friends for 4 days in May 2015. Amazing large, super clean and very cute villa about 40 min west of Lisbon. There are multiple terraces, a great pool and pool area and a very large garden. The owners are extremely sweet and super flexible. Beware it can get cold at night, blankets are available but an extra sweater is recommended.
