Located in Sintra & in easy access of all local amenities with a bus stop outside that runs every half an hour or so. I would probably advise that you hired a car if possible as it would be easier for you to shop for groceries, visit all the local attractions & drive to the capital Lisbon but having said that a car isn't necessary for you to enjoy Sintra. We hired a jeep for the day to visit the main view points of Sintra it is well priced we booked this with LAS tours Sintra. The closest restaurant is called Petiscaria Casa Madalena about a five minute walk from the house & is absolutely amazing lovely quirky style restaurant, fantastic food, reasonably priced & fantastic service. Another restaurant within walking distance(about fifteen/twenty minutes) called Restaurante O Lavrador equally as good & I highly recommend it. The food & wine you will eat all over this region is superb, they really know how to eat especially the cakes/pastries they are unreal definitely try the travesseiros de Sintra & pastel de nata there is a cafe called puriquita & is well worth a visit. The pictures on trip advisor do not show how beautiful this guest house really is. Fabulous views of the mountains & the castles in Sintra. The pool is pretty much yours the family rarely use it & the outhouse has a selection of different lilos & pool toys. There are plenty of sun loungers & a swing set of you have little ones. There is also an outdoor bbq which is covered with a table & chairs inside definitely have to dine al fresco! Also if you are very lucky the owner might cook for you she had made us the equivalent to a quiche & my family still talk about it to this day haha! The family that own the guest house are absolutely lovely & very welcoming their house is situated on the same lot & they are extremely helpful. There is plenty to do & see you wont be short of activities but a day in the garden by the pool is a must! A really relaxed quiet area. Definitely return.
Beautiful place well situated. Lovely people. Will return. All facilities to a very high standard and only 15 minutes from the beach and the amazing dinosaur foot prints some 30 million years old. Excellent bar/restaurant 5 minute walk.
