About Silvia Rodrigues
We have 2 school aged children and we love to travel.
Silvia Rodrigues purchased this House in 2011
Why Silvia Rodrigues chose Sintra
The main purpose of this house, located just 10 minutes away from were we live, is to be offered on house exchanges that we love to do during our holidays. We also use it to receive family and friends. We only rent it a few weeks per year to help with the maintenance expenses.
What makes this House unique
This house was thought and decorated accordingly to what we like to find when we travel. It was all the main amenities that you usually have at home, but that are so hard to find in touristic apartments. Our goal is to make everyone who visit us feel comfortable and at home, just like you do when you are visiting our friends. What made us fall in love for this house, was its location and fantastic views from all the windows. I love decorating and giving character to a house, so all the walls have lovely hand painted motifs, all done by my sister-in-law.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Our family loved staying in what seemed to be a home and small village right out of the pages of a children's book. Every view from any of the windows was picture perfect. Our family truly enjoyed our time here. This little village "old town" was buzzing during the day as day visitors from Lisbon came in but as the day came to a close the little streets were quiet and so peaceful. All of this and the fact that Silvia is an absolute sweetheart. She was so helpful and easy to communicate with from the booking process all the way to our departure. Thank you Silvia! XOXO
Loved Sintra. Silvia was a very attentive and helpful property owner.
Best Spot in Old Sintra
We absolutely loved the place. First off, Old Sintra has stairs and this apartment also has stairs so know that up front-end your good. Walk those small alley ways to the shops and restaurants 50ft. from your door. A fully restored, lovely old building, with excellent views and those cool breezes that Sintra is known for. Silvia, (our landlord) couldn't be nicer. Thank you, Silvia for helping make our trip to Sintra a lifetime of memories.
Dear Jim and Melissa, it was so wonderful to host such gracious guests!
I feel so happy to know that you have enjoyed your stay in Sintra!
I wish you all the best and enjoy the rest of your journey!
Romantic view ... not so romantic stay
Bedroom has two single beds with low sloped ceiling on either side. Only place to stand was in dead center. Fine for me, I’m 5’6” but my partner is 5’10” and he could not stand up. Hardly Romantic
I’m totally committed to provide everything I can to make our guests stay is as pleasant as possible. And I believe I provide all relevant information in a detailed and clear way.
In the house description, I explicitly mentioned that the attic room has maximum height is 1.75 m, so my guests know exactly what to expect.
But in case some information as been missed, I would had been very happy to review with my guests all available alternatives, to make sure their stay is as comfortable as possible.
So please take the time to carefully read the house description information to avoid future disappointments.
And I also like to check up with my guests during their stay to make sure they are having a good experience. So I would really appreciate to be informed of anything that does not meet your expectations, so I can have the opportunity to fix them or suggest alternatives.
Great property and hospitality
Silvia had tea and cookies waiting for us after our long day of travel. The place was clean and charming, with paintings decorating the walls. The sleeping area upstairs has a low ceiling, not too comfortable for a tall person. The kitchen is adequate and well appointed, though small. We were not tempted to make our own meals. Great location if a little hard to find at first.
Thank you so much Beth! It was a pleasure to meet you!
