ROMANTIC AND COZY, FEATURES HANDPAINTED WALLS AND SKY VIEWS FROM THE BEDROOM

Sintra House Rental Photos and Description

Charming 2-4p duplex, with lovely views, at the heart of historical center

Recent renovation (November 2011) of a mid 1800’s house, this lovely duplex features decorative paintings on the walls and offers all the amenities you will need during your stay in Sintra.

The first floor has an open space with a double chaise longue, a double day bed, window seat and a well equipped open-plan kitchen. Also in this floor you can find a bathroom with double sinks and a spacious shower as well as a closed veranda overlooking Sintra’s “Palácio da Vila”, where you can enjoy a drink while watching the sunset after a long day discovering Sintra.

In the attic, you will find a cosy bedroom with twin beds and two large windows overlooking the village plaza and surrounding countryside. This house accommodates up to 4 persons (the living area contains a day bed that can easily provide 2 additional sleeping accommodations) and is specially indicated for couples and small families. A cot may be added, on request, at no extra charge.

Sintra: Few places in the world can envoke a sense of magic and mystery as does Sintra. From magical forests to romantic palaces Sintra never fails to seduce. Described by Lord Byron as “Glorious Eden,” Sintra’s charms have long been celebrated. Once the summer residence of the kings of Portugal and of the Moorish lords of Lisbon before them, today Sintra is a romantic getaway for people from all around the world. The UNESCO Committee decided to inscribe Sintra as a World Heritage Site at the category of Cultural Landscape, because: 'the site is of outstanding universal value as it represents a pioneering approach to Romantic landscaping which had an outstanding influence on developments elsewhere in Europe.' This magical place is dominated by steep mountains and lush forests which create a microclimate, always several degrees cooler than Lisbon. Hosting beautiful palaces with neo-gothic towers, a visit to Sintra is a must

Other ways to discover in Sintra: In addition to the usual activities, we also suggest: Take a trolley ride from Sintra to Praia das Maçãs; Visit a wine cellar, 'Adega Regional de Colares'; Take afternoon tea at Lawrence's Hotel (the most ancient hotel in Iberia peninsula); Drink water in the fountain, 'Fonte da Sabuga' (whoever drinks this water will surely return to Sintra); Learn how to take care of a Bonsai in 'Bonsai Centro Sintra'; Specially for the children, visit 'Museu da Ciência Viva' and 'Quintinha Pedagógica' in Monserrate Park. You will find, at the house, more information on various itineraries to visit Sintra on foot, or other suggestions using alternative transportations such as, segway, bike, horse or jeep/buggy.

Cosy and comfortable in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for a month, and for part of that time we shared it with our daughter and our grandson. It is well equipped, spotless and very peaceful. The quiet is surprising considering that it is very close to the main tourist hub, where there are many great little shops and eateries. During the day we could often hear someone playing guitar softly at a nearby restaurant and with windows in three directions the light and the views were lovely. At night it's very peaceful and upstairs there are room-darkening blinds on the gorgeous skylight windows, optional of course on a moonlit night!

Our hosts, Mario and Silvia were very helpful and always responded quickly to our needs. We had excellent cleaning service weekly, and the apartment and the neighbourhood felt safe and secure.

Sintra was a good choice for us. We didn't want to spend our time driving (we get enough of that here in Canada) and we were able to spend much of every day outside, either in town exploring the interesting and diverse neighbourhoods or on the mountain paths leading up to the Moorish Castle ruins or to Pena Palace. There are loads of stairs, and it was good to get some exercise to help balance out the wonderful food and wine available locally in restaurants and also in the markets. We found it easy also to hop on a train to go to Lisbon, or one of the buses to various locations. There's even an old fashioned tram which takes you out to the seaside town of Praia de Macas, or Apple Beach.

We loved it here. We are already planning our next escape to Portugal!

Absolutely loved this apartment and Sintra!

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I absolutely loved this charming, comfortable and well equipped apartment. We stayed here for 4 nights. Sintra is magical with it's exquisite palaces and their lovely, diverse gardens. The apartment is in a terrific location with fabulous views out of every window. The apartment is only steps away from great restaurants and shopping, yet it is very quiet and private. The bus stop for sightseeing is just steps away and the train station is within walking distance too. You definitely do not need a car. It has a lot of added charm with the hand-painted walls, comfortable living room and the lovely alcove area with a tea set, yummy cookies and a picturesque view. The bedroom is upstairs and there is a comfortable sleeping area in the living room as well. The apartment is clean and well maintained and all the furniture is comfortable...beds included. The bathroom is very nice with double sinks and a great shower. And there are cozy bathrobes too.
Silvia & Mario were very accommodating and a pleasure to rent from. I do hope to return there. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Sintra and have already recommended the apartment to a friend of mine who will be staying there in July. This apartment truly is a "gem".

Perfect little home

  • 4 of 5
What a cute apartment! Very cosy, perfect location, really lovely base in beautiful Sintra. We had a wonderful three nights here and would highly recommend (unless you're tall, in which case you may bump your head on the attic ceiling!)

The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the place was well equipped - warm beds, wifi, maps, books and even tea and biscuits waiting for our arrival!

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Fun in Sintra

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation using Homeaway.com. The owner, Silvia, is absolutely a delight to work with. Payment was so easy using Pay Pal and she is a wealth of knowledge about the area and things to see and do. The apartment is very stylish and has everything you could need for a comfortable and quiet visit to Sintra. Everything has been recently renovated and there has been great attention to detail. It's steps away from restaurants and shopping. There are gorgeous views from every window. I hope to return!!
We stayed 3 nights in Lisbon and took the train to Sintra and stayed for 4 nights. Sintra is like stepping into a fairy tale. Be sure to visit the castle and palaces and hike some of the numerous trails. The gardens are beautiful. While we were there we hired a taxi to take us on a drive to Cascais and up the coast to Azenhas Do Mar. Stunning scenery!
You will love this apartment!
Thanks Silvia!
