Penedo house description

At the top of the mountain village of Penedo, Casa do Leao-AL ('The Lion House') is set in its secluded garden, about 40 mins drive from Lisbon. This restored 18th century country house of great charm is an excellent base from which to explore the historical attractions of the Sintra area -- including palaces, castles, and monasteries. There are interesting walks right on the doorstep with opportunities nearby for sea-bathing, cycling, and golfing.
This bright, cheerful house offers lots of space for up to seven guests. The three double bedrooms are comfortably furnished (one with a balcony) and a spacious landing has an extra bed adjacent to a bathroom. There are three full bathrooms and an exceptionally large entrance hall.
Both the sitting and dining rooms have French windows leading on to patios. The comfortable furnishings complement the old-world charm. The appliances in the light & airy kitchen include a built-in cooker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker & fridge/freezer.


The washer and dryer are in a separate laundry room. A weekly maid service is included in the rental.
In the winter the house is kept cozy thanks to electric night-storage radiators, double glazing, a wood-stove & an open log fire. The walled garden is interestingly set out on several levels with a built-in grill and various patios with spectacular views. There is a small pool shaded by an olive tree with lovely views up the coast.
Despite Penedo's rural location, Lisbon -- one of Europe's most exciting capitals -- is within easy reach by road or rail. The nearest beach is just an eight-minute drive away, while Sintra is about 20 minutes away. The quaint coastal resorts of Cascais and Estoril are an easy 30-minute journey by car. The nearest shop is a five-minute walk away and there are supermarkets within easy reach. The locality boasts a wide choice of restaurants, bars, and cafes serving fine wines and delicious regional specialties.


We look forward to welcoming you as our guests.

                              Casa do Leao is set in the unspoilt greenery of Sintra National Park, a World Heritage Site offering a wealth of castles, monasteries & fascinating walks & cycle rides right on the doorstep - take some delicious local bread, cheese, sausage & wine for a picnic! The heavily indented coastline shelters many lovely beaches - for swimming, surfing & walking - all within easy reach of the house. The Sintra Music Festival is held each summer & there are art galleries & antique shops. As well as the colourful markets, each weekend a collection of stalls assembles by the Almocageme junction to sell fruit, vegetables, flowers, bread & cakes, etc. - great fun!
