About the property

A stylish and secluded villa with a pool, beautiful gardens and views

Set in the beautiful, historic, UNESCO protected mountain range of Sintra, Quinta Matalva is a spacious and private villa located in a secluded valley with pine forest backdrops and views of the sea. Quinta Matalva has three bedrooms in the main house and a further two in a cottage so it's perfect for a small group renting the main house only or a group of 10 who can rent the cottage too. The main house has a wide terrace which is ideal for barbecues, drinks and outside dining. Through a gate from this terrace are steps down to a private swimming pool with another terrace and sun lounges. From the main house, walk through a colonnade to the cottage which has a separate kitchen, sitting room and terrace with a dining area, ideal for anyone in the group requiring privacy such as a family with young children or grandparents. From the entire property there are superb views of the historic botanic gardens of Monserrate and terraces of oranges, lemons and fig trees. For more information and photos, visit: www.matalva.com.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a wonderful setting - photos don't do it justice. The house was very comfortable and clean and had great views of the umbrella pine forest and the sea. Perfect to come with a large family or friends and take both the main house and barn. We will be back!

Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This rental was our best ever. Everything was as promised from our dealings with the manager and staff to the beauty of the property and its meticulous upkeep and condition. Travelling as three couples, we rented the main house for two weeks. Our arrival was delayed but we were met at close to midnight by a most friendly lady who set the tone for a memorable and glorious holiday. Portugal and its people are tops. Prices were well below our expectations with a taxi for six into the beautiful town of Sintra costing only 10 euros!

Relaxing Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and an 18 month old baby spent a week in the larger of the two houses and had a wonderful stay. The house was very clean and inviting upon arrival and very much more spacious than we had envisioned.

The bedrooms are large and comfortable and open out to the view down the valley. The upstairs bedroom opens onto a private terrace and the two downstairs rooms onto the main terrace above the pool. The living area also opens onto this terrace and there is an outside dining table which we ate at nearly every night of our stay.

Below the main terrace there is a fenced off pool area where we also spent a lot of time sunbathing or cooling off.

The setting is secluded down a narrow lane about 10 minutes drive out of Sintra. You will need a car to come and go but in any case a car would be a good idea to explore this area. We enjoyed shopping at the local food markets, visiting the palaces in Sintra, kite surfing in Guincho, surfing in Ericeria and day trips into Lisbon.

We would highly recommend the property and the area for a holiday.
