About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa bed, 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps 5)

Secluded in a forest of its own, Quinta da Boiça offers you a peaceful and private refuge in the heart of Portugal’s enchanting Sintra World Heritage Cultural Landscape. The house belonged to the Franciscan monks and is in fact an ancient hermitage transformed into a home over the last decades. From every window of the house a particular view opens before your eyes, and every shade of green is offered by the multiple varieties of trees, shrubs and bushes extending to the far off horizon of the distant coastline. Breathtaking views of Monserrate Palace and Pombal Manor House can also be enjoyed from various points of the Quinta.

This property with 10 hectares of woodland, ideal for hiking, walking or simply relaxing, is only 30 minutes from Lisbon airport, 15 minutes walk to Sintra historical centre with its collection of palaces, castles and manor houses, and in another 15 minutes you can find yourself in the colorful busy seaside towns of Estoril and Cascais with their lovely beaches, restaurants, shops and famous casino.

The house can be described as a 3 storey cottage comfortably furnished with period antiques and modern amenities. It has a large high ceiling living-room, 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a kitchen with all the modern appliances. There is a sofa bed in the large livingroom allowing for five people in total to use the house.Far from the stress and hectic routine of everyday life, Quinta da Boiça offers you sanctuary and peace making your stay a veritable holiday.
