It is a mountain range that twists and turns, projecting into the Atlantic Ocean to form Cabo da Roca - the headland that marks the westernmost point of' continental Europe. The Serra de Sintra today contains a fabulous collection of monuments from a whole host of different epochs, ranging from prehistoric times to the present day. Thanks to its unique microclimate, Sintra has some of the most beautiful parks in Portugal, planted in keeping with a certain romantic taste, as well as a dense and verdant natural vegetation, affording the region an air of great majesty amidst the splash of different greens.

About Dagmar Hedrich

I am German and live in since more than 16 years Portugal with my family. I absolutely love Sintra, and when in 2005 an opportunity arose to buy and a house there, we renovated it for our own use during weekends, and for family visits. In 2009, we decided to rent it out to holiday makers.

Dagmar Hedrich purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Dagmar Hedrich chose Sintra

Sintra is an excellent place to be in short distance to sandy beaches and breathtaking cliffs - and at the same time within easy reach from Lisbon.

What makes this apartment unique

Our house is one of the 'chalets' which were built around the turn of the century, when the railway line from Lisbon as built. The small town, which had hitherto been reserved to the Portuguese royal family and nobility as summer residence, then became popular among wealthy Portuguese. Besides the large country estates, smaller 'Chalets' for bourgeoisie and the artists were built. Our Villa was designed and built for José Ricardo, an actor and theatre director, who lived here until 1925. When we converted the house into a modern apartment, we tried tho maintain special atmosphere which we had felt at our very first visit.

Centrally located, well furnished

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of two couples staying in Sintra for one week. The house has every convenience, most particularly in the kitchen. The main reason we rent houses is so we can cook and there wasn't a single thing extra we could have asked for. We walked everywhere including the grocery store and all of the major sites. The neighborhood is very quiet, parking is provided right in front of the house. Lots of towels and linens provided. The train station is about two blocks away. Two minor quibbles. The front entryway is dark and very musty smelling. Some air freshener or a dehumidifier would certainly help. Also, although the listing shows a washer/dryer, there is only a washer. Drying must be done on the racks that are provided or on the line that runs out the kitchen window. This was definitely an inconvenience since it rained several times during our stay. Nonetheless, we would definitely recommend this lovely house to anyone who wants to skip a hotel or B&B

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, many thanks for your kind review and for your appreciation of the kitchen. We think that cooking and eating are among the most enjoyable things when on holidays and take pride in offering the equipment and comfort that we would ourselves expect.
But let me also respond to the 'quibbles': I am really sorry you were led to expect a dryer in our house, as we don't have one (yet). The original advert edited by me only shows the washing machine (its the German website "Fewo") - and I can only imaging that there must be some 'transformational' error when the information gets spread over other websites. My apologies for this! I will let the Fewo-Partners know about this so they can make sure the mistake is corrected. Regarding the entrance: while there are light switches near both doors, they can sometimes remain unnoticed. Will check if the bulb stopped working when I go to the house tomorrow! Finally, following periods of rain, like in your case, the entrance can smell a bit - we then try to air the entrance more often and have now also an air freshener ready for use when needed again. Many thanks again for making us aware of these two issues; this helps us to improve the house for all guests. With best regards, Dagmar

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful week at this charming apartment! We were looking for a place that was located close to all the historical sites in and around Sintra, had good restaurants and food shops, and would also provide a roomy home base. where four adults and a 3 1/2 year old could plan daily activities and relax at the end of the day. We couldn't have found a more perfect spot!

The apartment was bright (high ceilings and lots of windows), offered numerous lounging areas and eating spots from informal to formal, extremely well equipped gourmet style kitchen, very clean, and well maintained. Sipping coffee on the terrace in the early morning sunlight was an added bonus. With its own entrance, it was also very private.

Booking this holiday rental was easy as the owner (Dagmar) was a real gem to work with. The whole experience was first class and one that we hope to repeat again in the future!

A perfect villa to enjoy your holiday in Sintra

  • 5 of 5
We (= three mature couples from Finland) spent a holiday week in Sintra in April. We were lucky indeed finding Casa Jose Ricardo for our villa to stay! The location of the house is perfect: it is in a quiet environment, but still very close to center of the town, sights and groceries and a market, and it takes only 5 min. to walk to the railwaystation (and 30 min. to Lissabon centre). The villa itself is a well-maintained, beautiful and roomy, stylishly and cosy furnitured; kitchen and bathrooms were fully and practically equipped and terrace and garden pleasant places to relax. Everything was clean, comfortable and functional - for us who are experienced travellers - even luxury. Our hostess of was extremely friendly and helpful and she really made us feel homely.

We absolutely recommend this villa, it was exceptionally positive experience for all of us!

Huippupaikka, viihtyisä, edullinen ja valoisa Sintrassa!

Fantastic apartment with everything thought of

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is conveniently located near the train station (but not too near) and also the supermarket and local shops. It is beautiful with high ceilings, lots of light and all mod cons. It was maintained to a very high standard and was very clean. Everything has been thought of for both adults and children - even down to buckets and spades for kids. We really enjoyed the fact that it is in an old Portugese house, but equipped in a modern way. We appreciated the games room, the tourism tips and notes which enabled us to make the best of our trip and really there was nothing that could have been improved. Having access to an outdoor area was nice, and also to a drying rack for beach towels etc.
Dagmar the owner was very helpful and kept in contact both pre and during the trip so we felt very looked after.
Would really recommend this apartment if you're planning a visit to Sintra as it's central without being right in the thick of it. We found Sintra Old Town a bit hectic and this apartment gives access to that, but without confining you/ children to a hotel room.
We visited the Moorish Castle which was quite a climb but excellent, Old Town Sintra, the beach at Praia Grande (fabulous but big surf) and also the whimsical garden opposite the beautiful Palacio Setais - all of which are worth a visit.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful visit to Sintra and the surrounding area. This apartment was perfectly situated for easy siteseeing in Sintra, Lisbon and Cascia. The town of Sintra was a favorite and only a short walk from the apartment. We loved being in the quiet neighborhood away from the bustle of touristy Sintra, but still close enough for train and bus access.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and the homey touches made it tempting to forget siteseeing and just relax with a bottle of Port on the beautiful patio. The kitchen is wonderfully equiped and the grocery store is within easy walking distance. When you do venture out, Dagmar has established a remarkable library of tourist information which we found quite helpful. All and all, this was the perfect retreat for us!

Thank you Dagmar and we hope to visit again soon!

The cultural landscape of Sintra, which developed in the 19th century into the centre of European romantic architecture, is listed as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1995. Besides the fairytale castle 'Palacio da Pena', which is one of the main romantic ensembles in Europe and was built by King Fernando II (Ferdinand von Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha), the National Palace and the Moorish castle are worth a visit. There are several gardens and parks with the lush vegetation that is so typical for Sintra - and unique in the World. Due to its location, Sintra allows you to combine culturally stimulating holidays with peaceful village life, beach holidays, golf, surf or hiking.

Other Activities: Photographic excursions guided by professional photographer

Golf: Sintra is proud to have some of the best golf courses in Portugal. Set against amazing landscapes, there are several courses in easy reach: Estoril (18 & 9 hole courses), Quinta da Beloura (18 holes), Penha Longa (18 / 9); Quinta de Marinha (18 holes). Due to Sintra's mild micro-climate, golf can be played all year round.

From the website goingforgolf.com: 'The Lisbon Golf Coast has no fewer than 19 full courses laid out to the south of the city across the River Tagus (Costa Azul), to the west (Estoril Coast) and to the north-west (Silver Coast). The vast majority of layouts are within a 45-minute radius of Lisbon airport and overlook, or are close to, the wonderful coastline this area boasts.'
