Serra de Sintra:: Tourist information: Known in ancient times as Mons Lunae (the Hills of the Moon), because of its strong traditions of astral cults, still clearly visible in the region's countless monuments and archaeological remains, the Serra de Sintra is a granite outcrop roughly 10 km long, rising abruptly between a vast plain to the north and the estuary of the River Tagus to the south. It is a mountain range that twists and turns, projecting into the Atlantic Ocean to form Cabo da Roca - the headland that marks the westernmost point of' continental Europe. The Serra de Sintra today contains a fabulous collection of monuments from a whole host of different epochs, ranging from prehistoric times to the present day. Thanks to its unique microclimate, Sintra has some of the most beautiful parks in Portugal, planted in keeping with a certain romantic taste, as well as a dense and verdant natural vegetation, affording the region an air of great majesty amidst the splash of different greens.

                                  Car: Not Necessary

                                  The cultural landscape of Sintra, which developed in the 19th century into the centre of European romantic architecture, is listed as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1995. Besides the fairytale castle 'Palacio da Pena', which is one of the main romantic ensembles in Europe and was built by King Fernando II (Ferdinand von Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha), the National Palace and the Moorish castle are worth a visit. There are several gardens and parks with the lush vegetation that is so typical for Sintra - and unique in the World. Due to its location, Sintra allows you to combine culturally stimulating holidays with peaceful village life, beach holidays, golf, surf or hiking.

                                  Golf: Sintra is proud to have some of the best golf courses in Portugal. Set against amazing landscapes, there are several courses in easy reach: Estoril (18 & 9 hole courses), Quinta da Beloura (18 holes), Penha Longa (18 / 9); Quinta de Marinha (18 holes). Due to Sintra's mild micro-climate, golf can be played all year round.

                                  From the website goingforgolf.com: 'The Lisbon Golf Coast has no fewer than 19 full courses laid out to the south of the city across the River Tagus (Costa Azul), to the west (Estoril Coast) and to the north-west (Silver Coast). The vast majority of layouts are within a 45-minute radius of Lisbon airport and overlook, or are close to, the wonderful coastline this area boasts.'

                                  Year Purchased: 2005

                                  About the owner: I am German and live in since more than 16 years Portugal with my family. I absolutely love Sintra, and when in 2005 an opportunity arose to buy and a house there, we renovated it for our own use during weekends, and for family visits. In 2009, we decided to rent it out to holiday makers.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Sintra:
                                  Sintra is an excellent place to be in short distance to sandy beaches and breathtaking cliffs - and at the same time within easy reach from Lisbon.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                                  Our house is one of the 'chalets' which were built around the turn of the century, when the railway line from Lisbon as built. The small town, which had hitherto been reserved to the Portuguese royal family and nobility as summer residence, then became popular among wealthy Portuguese. Besides the large country estates, smaller 'Chalets' for bourgeoisie and the artists were built. Our Villa was designed and built for José Ricardo, an actor and theatre director, who lived here until 1925. When we converted the house into a modern apartment, we tried tho maintain special atmosphere which we had felt at our very first visit.
