About Ricardo Forte

My name is Ricardo, I´m the actual owner of La Galette - Sintra Windmill. I had this idea about renting this amazing house when I received it by heritage. Whit some small problems, everything was fixed and we start this path through the tourism industry.

Ricardo Forte purchased this house in 1969

Why Ricardo Forte chose São João das Lampas

This property reach my hands by heritage through my grandparents. With some maintenance problems, we have reconstructed all the details to achieve this actual state that permits a normal routine, even living in a several century house.

What makes this house unique

The main building (round building) remonts to the Moorish Age. The area where the living area & bathroom remonts to 1969, when my grandparent´s bought the house.

Loved the windmill the experience was so warming and memorable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the windmill for 5 weeks, it became our home and we fell in love with this property. The village is lovely the people are friendly and very helpful. The restaurants were good also. The laundry in the Village of Fontanelas was so good, we thought quite cheap for the good work they did, and did well. Ricardo was also very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. So recommend this property. Absolutely delightful .

La Galette

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rustic, get away from it type holiday, within one hours drive of Lisbon, then this is the place. The host was very supportive and very polite. Everything is provided in the way of bedding, kitchen utensils, toilet and cleaning materials, all you have to do is provide the food. The area is lovely, quiet and the locals are very friendly. The village has all your immediate needs in the form of cafes, local shop and restaurant. The nearest coastline is five minutes away and the main town of Sintra with all its historical palaces and castles is twenty minutes away, both by car.

A great holiday!!!!

A very unique place

  • 5 of 5

La Galette is very unique. I think you should have a car to properly enjoy this property. It is quiet and comfortable and charming. If you have issues with stairs maybe not the place for you. Well appointed with artifacts and enough of everything to keep you comfortable, Near several beaches and ample small markets and decent restaurants to take care of your needs. Close to a convenient bus stop to connect to Sintra or the train to Lisbon.

alles bestens.....

  • 5 of 5

Die Mühle ist wirklich sehr schön. Vielleicht etwas dunkler als auf den Fotos, aber liebevoll und rustikal eingerichtet.

Wir haben nicht selber gekocht, aber ich glaub in der Küche ist alles vorhanden.

Alles bestens !!!

Il mulino delle bambole

  • 5 of 5

Bellissima abitazione immersa nel verde . Il mulino è arredato benissimo e fornito di tutti i confort . La cosa però più incredibile è la cura nei dettagli e la bellezza dell arredamento e degli oggetti che lo compongono Merita assolutamente di essere visto e vissuto e complimenti a chi lo ha progettato e arredato
