Sintra House Rental Photos and Description

3BR Oceanview Vacation Rental Penedo, Portugal

At the top of the mountain village of Penedo, Casa do Leao-AL ('The Lion House') is set in its secluded garden, about 40 mins drive from Lisbon. This restored 18th century country house of great charm is an excellent base from which to explore the historical attractions of the Sintra area -- including palaces, castles, and monasteries. There are interesting walks right on the doorstep with opportunities nearby for sea-bathing, cycling, and golfing.

This bright, cheerful house offers lots of space for up to seven guests. The three double bedrooms are comfortably furnished (one with a balcony) and a spacious landing has an extra bed adjacent to a bathroom. There are three full bathrooms and an exceptionally large entrance hall.

Both the sitting and dining rooms have French windows leading on to patios. The comfortable furnishings complement the old-world charm. The appliances in the light & airy kitchen include a built-in cooker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker & fridge/freezer.

The washer and dryer are in a separate laundry room. A weekly maid service is included in the rental.

In the winter the house is kept cozy thanks to electric night-storage radiators, double glazing, a wood-stove & an open log fire. The walled garden is interestingly set out on several levels with a built-in grill and various patios with spectacular views. There is a small pool shaded by an olive tree with lovely views up the coast.

Despite Penedo's rural location, Lisbon -- one of Europe's most exciting capitals -- is within easy reach by road or rail. The nearest beach is just an eight-minute drive away, while Sintra is about 20 minutes away. The quaint coastal resorts of Cascais and Estoril are an easy 30-minute journey by car. The nearest shop is a five-minute walk away and there are supermarkets within easy reach. The locality boasts a wide choice of restaurants, bars, and cafes serving fine wines and delicious regional specialties.

We look forward to welcoming you as our guests.

More detailed information on all aspects can be e-mailed on request.

Lovely destination for a holiday

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at Casa Do Leao for the past 3 years and always look forward to returning. It is a home away from home. The cottage is very well cared for, with lovely decor and it has all the mod cons.
The views are breath-taking and the novelty never wears off of looking out over the stunning hillside and down to the sea.
We love going into Sintra and exploring the many palaces and the quaint little shops and welcoming restaurants.
Our favourite restaurant has to be Toca do Julio in nearby Almocageme and the waitress last time remembered us and gave us such a warm welcome.
The cottage is also within easy drive of Caiscais, with the lovely harbour and stunning sandy beaches.
The pool at the cottage is perfect for a refreshing dip and to catch some sun. I've been with both my family and a group of friends and it caters very well for everyone. There are some wonderful walks from the cottage and bikes there that you can also use.
I can't recommend this area or cottage enough and am already looking forward to my visit.

Great rental...more than promised or expected

  • 5 of 5
We (6 us of us) stayed here several years back...around 2005?? Great location between the spectacular coast and wonderful Sintra. Great views from the deck. The house came fully equipped with everything one can image needing to entertain and cook. Just wonderful. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Cozy Romantic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We just returned to Wisconsin from the best rental, very clean, nice linen and firm beds. Well appointed, nice appliances and the views were marvelous. We will be back again probably next year since I would love to be there when the garden is in full bloom. The local village of Penedo is just wonderful, nice bar (Paulo) and next door the best lunch in the region...just a 5 min walk downhill.

Absolutely a marvelous place. We will be returning in the future. One of the most beautiful places we've ever been to. The accommodations are 5 Star and the village is charming. This is a good location to get to either beaches or tourist (churches & castles) sites while still being out of the way. Loved it.

etwas abgelegen und einzigartig

  • 5 of 5
Das ist ein ganz tolles und einzigartiges Haus. Es ist so liebevoll eingerichtet, dass einem viele Details erst nach einigen Tagen auffallen. Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt und konnten richtig entspannen. Der Pool war für unsere Kids genau das richtige, da nicht allzu tief. Übrigens, es war alles supersauber. In jedem Fall empfehlenswert!

Casa do Leao is set in the unspoilt greenery of Sintra National Park, a World Heritage Site offering a wealth of castles, monasteries & fascinating walks & cycle rides right on the doorstep - take some delicious local bread, cheese, sausage & wine for a picnic! The heavily indented coastline shelters many lovely beaches - for swimming, surfing & walking - all within easy reach of the house. The Sintra Music Festival is held each summer & there are art galleries & antique shops. As well as the colourful markets, each weekend a collection of stalls assembles by the Almocageme junction to sell fruit, vegetables, flowers, bread & cakes, etc. - great fun!
