Overview

Sintra area Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa bed, 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps 5)

Secluded in a forest of its own, Quinta da Boiça offers you a peaceful and private refuge in the heart of Portugal’s enchanting Sintra World Heritage Cultural Landscape. The house belonged to the Franciscan monks and is in fact an ancient hermitage transformed into a home over the last decades. From every window of the house a particular view opens before your eyes, and every shade of green is offered by the multiple varieties of trees, shrubs and bushes extending to the far off horizon of the distant coastline. Breathtaking views of Monserrate Palace and Pombal Manor House can also be enjoyed from various points of the Quinta.

This property with 10 hectares of woodland, ideal for hiking, walking or simply relaxing, is only 30 minutes from Lisbon airport, 15 minutes walk to Sintra historical centre with its collection of palaces, castles and manor houses, and in another 15 minutes you can find yourself in the colorful busy seaside towns of Estoril and Cascais with their lovely beaches, restaurants, shops and famous casino.

The house can be described as a 3 storey cottage comfortably furnished with period antiques and modern amenities. It has a large high ceiling living-room, 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a kitchen with all the modern appliances. There is a sofa bed in the large livingroom allowing for five people in total to use the house.Far from the stress and hectic routine of everyday life, Quinta da Boiça offers you sanctuary and peace making your stay a veritable holiday.

A fabulous quinta in a fairytale location.

  • 5 of 5

This glorious house nestles on the steep side of a wooded valley with tremendous views to the west and northwards to the Atlantic coast. The weather patterns are forever changeable because of the topography and the fabulous quality of the light is a constantly-changing photographer’s delight.

The house is accessed by a narrow lane to the estate gate and then a steep gravel drive down to the house itself. The woods are dense, steep and full of great variety of ancient trees. There are a few paths & tracks available but it is hard to judge the full extent of the property due to the terrain. Nevertheless there are plenty of lovely, well-kept spaces and terraces around the house to enjoy the location to the full. It is a truly remarkable place.

The house is well-kept and beautifully furnished with antiques, painting etc and has a fantastic homely quality. All the facilities worked well and our 10-day stay was utterly trouble-free in all respects. The owners left us a comprehensive welcome package of food and the efficient and polite cleaners appeared twice a week. We wanted for nothing and the quite luxurious environment meant we were tempted to just stay in the quinta for the whole holiday.

However the local historic gardens and architecture of Sintra beckoned and we found that we could easily walk to the town centre in 15-20 minutes with the local attractions and restaurants right on hand or nearby. Sintra is very busy during the day with day-trips from Lisbon, but lovely and quiet in the evenings. We had some good meals out and the moonlit walks back to Quinta da Boica to the magical background of fireflies and the singing frogs were just magical.

We have over the years tried to find special places with some sense of individuality for our family holidays with a good balance of comfort, practicality and easy access to local interests. It is never an easy task each year and now it will be so much harder as Quinta da Boica has just raised the bar so much.

It is simply the best place we have ever stayed.....
