QUINTA MATALVA MAIN HOUSE & COTTAGE

Sintra Villa Rental Photos and Description

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.

Wonderful place and staff

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for the wonderful stay! We had reserved the barn, but upgraded to the main house on last minute. When we arrived, the housekeeper was waiting for us with fireplace on and a first-aid supply of food and beverages, as a free compliment. That was a lovely thing, we needed it after long flights and late-evening journey through narrow roads of beautiful Sintra.

The whole stay was great as well. The views were magnificent, and the house was spacious and had everything we needed. Whenever we had any problems, the hosts and housekeeper helped us promptly.

The town of Sintra is probably difficult to drive and park while peak summer months, but we travelled off-season and it was easier. It’s an absolutely beautiful place, strongly recommended. Also the nearby towns and attractions are really nice - Matalva had listed their favorites for visitors.

We are a Finnish couple aged 35, with two kids age 3 and ½ years.

Superb villa, outstanding location and good value.

If you value calm, nature and great view on the surroundings, then this house is for you. You will have a view over several shades of green who end up with the blue of the sea. You will need a car to go anywhere but calm and isolation come at this small price. The interaction with the owner was great, as well as with Ana, the local housekeeper, most helpful. The house has a great garden and the house has a note from owner "feel free to explore and pick up any fruit you would like". The amenities are also very good. We rented both houses and have appreciated the flexibility of the houses and their amenities.

Better than described

  • 4 of 5
We've rented a lot of houses and loved this one. The bedrooms were a lot bigger than descibed and could sleep quite a few people (especially if you're a family with small children who share a room).

The house a airy, light, well furnished, and comfortable. The kitchen was fairly modern and they had a large grill (we cooked for 10 at one shot).

Any problems and the owner was next door (we lost electricity and gas at one point).

The negatives: no phone or internet (if you view that as a negative) and you are 3k outside of town so you MUST have several cars to ferry people to and from dinner, shopping, etc - no walking to town.
