Welcome to our house, a picturesque romantic style 19th century old chalet nestled in the mountainside of Old Town Sintra!
Very convenient, it's located only a seven minutes walk from the centre where some of the main attractions lie (the Sintra National Palace, the Periquita queijadas and travesseiros, the Church of São Martinho, all the shops and restaurants and the transports to the palaces and castle), this is a place of peace, charm and simplicity.
A quick walk from the heart of Sintra but at the same time totally secluded and protected from all noise and other tourists! :o)
The house has little gardens and a small estate which guests are welcome to explore.
In this apartment we offer you two rooms: one with a double bed, another one with a twin bed, a kitchen, a small room for meals, 2 bathrooms and a wonderful private terrace where you can have your meals or just sunbathe and relax and read your books overlooking the palaces and the mountain!
In the main bedroom we have a folding bed for a child if you need.
The beach is only 10 to 15 minutes away by car, tram or bus, and Lisbon is 25 minutes away by car and 40 by train.
If you are arriving by train, take a taxi cab from the train station - it's only a 5 minute drive. It is a steep walk with all the luggage. Though we are at the very heart of Sintra Village, this is a mountain. Seven minutes down from the National Palace and about 10 to 12 minutes up.
When you arrive you will be totally independent.
The attic is entirely cleansed by a professional maid and bed linen and towels changed for every new guest, of course. But mind that this is a very simple and plain lodging in the countryside, with our old fashioned furnitures and some paint scraping off some windows! No matter how much we clean, there will always be a spider cob here or a ladybug there. If you are an urbanite who expects everything new, sparkling and flawless and are not happy or confortable with the countryside, don't book us!
We don't have any special rules, only that you enjoy staying here and be happy.
Check in time is better after 12h00 a.m., that we have time to clean and prepare the apartment for you after other guests have left, and check out is at 11.00 a.m. However, you can arrive any time before 12h00 a.m. and leave your luggage while we get things ready for you.
We can old your luggage for you if you are not leaving Sintra right away the day you check out, so don't worry!
Please do not smoke inside. We have a very nice terrace where you are welcome to do it.
