Sintra Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment in Sintra, Lisbon Coast, Portugal - Views Over The Palace

The apartment has one double bedroom, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a spacious living room with a double sofa bed. There are two small balconies from which you can enjoy breakfast from the famous pasteleria Piriquita next door, soak up the vibrant old town atmosphere, or sip a glass of local wine listening to the fado singers in the street below. Most of the attractions are within easy walking distance of the apartment, there is a frequent bus service to the more distant palaces and castles and central Lisbon is a short and inexpensive train ride away. Sintra is a great base to explore the region, with the excellent shopping and nightlife of Cascais and Estoril less than 15 minutes drive and the stunning beaches and renowned seafood restaurants of Guincho close at hand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a lovely apartment - located in Sintra's pedestrianized old town - with a fantastic view of the National Palace out the windows in small sitting room - great place to sit with coffee in the morning and wine in the evening - Tastefully furnished and decorated - no expense spared.

We would stay here again and highly recommend it! The owner, Inez was very charming quick to respond to any needs."

Salvador Sa ( 1/02/2013 to 8/02/2013)

The owner, Inez, is absolutely a delight to work with. The apartment is very charming and has everything you could need for a comfortable visit to Sintra. Everything has been recently renovated. 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 Cascai
