Fabulous house in Sintra
Perfect house for a group vacation! It's exactly as pictured, and very spacious with 6 bedrooms upstairs (all but one have ensuite washrooms), 3 living rooms and laundry on the main floor and another living room, a dining room and a kitchen on the ground level, opening to the back patio. We had 8 adults plus kids and never felt crowded! Beautiful kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances and the basic gear, and attentive hosts are on hand to provide anything else required on request. Lots of towels provided too, both the bathroom and pool variety. Thoughtful touches, like hallway lights on timers, make the house very low maintenance. The pool is beautiful, and there's lots of outdoor furniture to enjoy. Bonus is the property, which includes a wooded area that's great for exploring, as well as many fruit trees (we harvested the bounty to use in our cooking!) Amazing views of the Moorish Castle and Pena Palace in the hills, and about 10-minutes (steep) walking from the National Palace, shops, and restaurants. Only thing to note is the address itself - it's private and quiet, but a bit challenging to find. Part of the approach is a bumpy, unpaved road and all the one-way streets in Sintra mean that missing a turn can send you on a 15-minute loop around the town. We had pretty good luck with Uber, and eventually got the hang of directions after about a week of practice! Overall, we would consider a car rental optional. Sintra deserves more than a day-trip and we highly recommend this lovely spot for a relaxing vacation.
