Roomy and well equipped. Wonderful location close to everything, but tucked away on a quiet street.

  • 5 of 5

Isabel is a fabulous host. We arrived on a holiday (New Year's day) and she even had food for us because all the shops we're closed. Perfect place for us to stay! Having a place to park the car off the street was another excellent convenience. It made it easier not to have to worry about finding a parking place when returning from day trips to Coimbra, Tomar, Merida, Fatima, and Evora.

Muito obrigado, Isabel!

What a fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Isabel greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the apartment. I can honestly say that it is the best apartment we have stayed in as it's very much a home rather than a 'holiday apartment' and has all the facilites that you would expect from a modern home. Being close to Sintra town, everything is within walking distance including quite a few restaurants and a reasonable supermarket which is only a 10 minute walk away.

This is our 5th visit to Sintra as it's a place that we love and we plan on returning next year - hopefully to stay in this lovely apartment. Isabel is a delightful lady and could not have been more welcoming.

Thank you Isabel!

Wonderful house in Sintra

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were delighted with this house. Isabel and her husband were very welcoming when we arrived and took the time to explain everything to us. The house felt like home straight away. It is so well stocked. It has everything you could need and it is lovely and homely with a lovely mix of modern appliances with some antique furnishings. There is an excellent shower in the bathroom and another in the shower room which we didn't use. There is lots of space and it’s nice to have the balcony as well as the terrace space. There is air conditioning in all the rooms as well as shutters on the windows and space to park a car if you have it. The house is only a very short walk from the local market and mini-market. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the train station and buses and 10-15 minute walk from the old town. The location is nice and quiet despite being in the centre of things and there are some nice cafes just around the corner. Sintra itself is beautiful. I would really recommend this place to anyone staying in Sintra. Thanks to Isabel for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay, for the following reasons:

1) Great value for money

2) Comfortable, well equipped appartment

3) Charming and ever helpful owner

4) Close to the town center but peaceful, quiet and relaxing

5) Location, location, location. Steps to shops and restaurants in the new town. 5-10 minutes walk to the train station, 10-15 minutes to the old town. Good bus and train connections to the beach, Lisbon and around Sintra.

6) Slept our family of five very comfortably

7) Overall, truly a gem

Sintra is simply beautiful, but the old town can be crowded with tourists (such as us!) in the summer. We really apprecaited staying so close to the center of the new town - right by the pedestrian precinct with restaurants, a market, groecry stores, butchers etc, where we really felt ourselves to be in the heart of Portugal. Yet the wonderful sights of historic Sintra are just an enjoyable and relatively short walk away.

We will be back!

Perfect location in Sintra

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Sintra is perfect. Isabel explained everything to us. The apartment was spotless clean and in perfect working order. It is very well equipped and comfortable. The apartment is in an excellent location. It is just outside of the historic center of Sintra and in the center of the town of Sintra. It is better to be in the town than the historic center because the historic center has too much traffic (on afternoon and weekends, even in April, it is far quicker to walk than take a taxi from the train station), and it is noisy with a constant stream of tourists walking about. Isabel's apartment comes with parking at the side of the house (it is very difficult to find parking in Sintra). The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the train station (good for day trips to Lisbon and Queluz), a 20 minute pretty walk to Sintra's historic center (there is a bus from the train station if needed), 2 minute walk from the beach tram (a fun outing), and all of the shops are within 2 to 4 blocks. From the train station, there are buses to all of the interesting sights in the area, or you can drive if you have a car, including the palaces, castles, manor houses, beach towns. There are many walking and hiking paths around the Sintra area. Even though this apartment is convenient to everything, it was quiet. We have rented apartments/houses in many places in Europe and this was one of the best - highly recommended.
