AREA: Sintra is well known for its historic buildings, palaces and beautiful gardens.

The Pena Palace is situated on top of the Sintra mountain next to the Moorish Castle.

It can be reached by car, bus, horse drawn carriage or on foot! It is a very steep climb and only the very fit should attempt to walk!

The town itself is a very popular tourist area and has many places of interest and a tourist office.

Cascais, Estoril and Lisbon provide all that you may require in the way of shops, museums, historic

buildings, night-life and a casino.

Further north the Mafra palace and the fishing port of Ericeira are worth a visit.

Between Guincho and Adraga beaches lies the most westerly point of Europe- Caba da Roca. A monument by the lighthouse marks the point.

ATLANTIC COAST: The Atlantic coast provides wonderful surfing and boarding.

Some of the Portuguese championships are held along these beaches.

Several are easily accessible and have very good facilities including cafe/bars and excellent seafood restaurants.

cosy comfortable a real home from home

  • 5 of 5
this is a lovely place to stay in a very picturesque area. The views from the 4 terrace areas are gorgeous and you can follow the sun all day. There is everything you need to live like a local a fully equipped kitchen to cook up your produce from the local market . Only 10mins from sintra and beautiful beaches by car and access to lisbon by train means great variety staying in Panedo. I fell in love with the place im coming back next year.

A marvelous stay at "Casa Da Encosta"

Dear Robert,
Time goes by and we didn't tell you the good vibes we had in your so charming cottage in Penedo last June. Everything was perfect. The kind of place in which we want to live and never leave... Congratulations for the generosity we guess behind your art of living, to the delight of all.

With our warmest thanks,

Anne Marie, Emmanuèle and Mario

A slice of the real Portugal!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Casa da Encosta twice - once in high summer and once in the winter - and both times were magical. This lush green part of the Portuguese coast is a lovely place to stay any time of the year, with crashing ocean surf, forest walks and loads of weird and interesting old castles and houses to look around on a rainy day.
Casa da Encosta is right on top of the hill in the beautiful village of Penedo, next to the old church. It is a classic little whitewashed village in the Sintra hills, and Casa da Encosta is probably the most idyllic cottage in the whole village.
The position is perfect for views across the forested hillsides, with occasional views of the Atlantic peeping over the horizon. The cottage is well equipped and beautifully decorated in a rustic Portuguese style. It is the perfect base for anyone who wants to live a little of the traditional Portuguese life in a relaxing environment.
It has a very grand master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a separate shower room, and a snug sitting room with wood fire. Downstairs, a traditional tiled kitchen is deliciously cool in summer with all the utensils and kitchenware to rustle up a Portuguese feast.
Outside, there is a lovely little terrace with a stone table and much greenery that is the perfect place to while away a summer afternoon on the rigours of a good book and a glass of Vinho Verde. I hope others enjoy it as much as we did!

Beautiful house in a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
The Sintra area was even better than we expected. The hills are covered in shady woods and full of magical palaces. There are any number of fascinating places to visit in the area and more within easy range, provided you have a car. For shorter trips, local taxis are punctual and friendly.

The house is beautiful (see images), with a lush garden and two patios. It is located in a pleasant little hilltop village. Ask at the local bar for taxis and such. English speakers will find plenty of light holiday reading, an interesting collection of dvd:s, and lots of travel info on Portugal.

Worth a visit,
Anni, Annukka, Ville and the kids

Géniale, superbe !

  • 5 of 5
Location superbe, hors du temps dans le petit village de Colares qui surplombe l Océan. L accès est déjà une aventure mais une fois arrive, c est top. Calme, vieilles pierres, reposant, bien décoré, super propre. Bref, nous y avons passé un super séjour début août. En plus, c est proche des plages (en voiture) des lieux touristiques et à 1/2 heure de Lisbonne. Si vous cherchez quelque chose "d'authentique", c est la qu il faut aller !
