“Fantastic house to stay in fabulous Sintra”

We had a lovely stay in this traditional house, with all the mod cons and all the sights of Sintra. The owner was delightful and helpful, and not intrusive at all, and although she lived in Lisbon she was happy to meet us late at the house and settle us in. The house was a great place to relax and waking up there was lovely with the balcony and the light, bright and airy rooms. When we go back to Sintra again (as I'm sure we will) this would be our first choice of somewhere to stay. Everything worked, and the house was exactly as it appears in the pictures.

“Beautiful, traditional duplex in an excellent location, close to all amenities.”

This home was exactly what we were after, a traditional Portuguese home that also had all the comforts and mods and cons. The kitchen was fully equipped, bedrooms were massive , had the use of 2 dining areas , an outdoor area plus more. We had a car with us and had exclusive use of the driveway of the house to park over so we never got booked. We travelled with a 14 and 9 year old and they loved the house. They had their own large rooms and bathrooms. The house is well stocked with CD's , DVD's , board and card games to keep the kids happy and unlike other places we have stayed, the wi-fi was excellent, it was very fast and always available. This was important for us having to often check emails for business purposes etc..There is also cable TV providing all Portuguese channels and english channels.The house is in an excellent location in Estafania, Sintra. If you don't have a car with you its fine, it is close to the train station and buses and the eclectic, original Sintra tram leaves from Estafania during summer on Fridays, Sat and Sundays to take you to Praia Das Macas every hour. The house is also a few minutes walk to the local market where you can by fresh fruit and veggies, breads, cheeses etc.. The beautiful, world heritage centre of Sintra is a lovely walk from the house. The owner of the property was extremely helpful and welcoming. She replied to all requests very quickly and was lovely to deal with from start to finish. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely return!

We were very delighted with the wonderful rental in Sintra. It was immaculate, close to the train station, and a beautiful place to stay. The owner thought of every detail to make it a lovely week. If you want the perfect place to stay in Sintra, this is it. You will not be disappointed. The rooms were well lighted and the large windows let in lots of natural light. Internet connection was perfect.

“Huge house with tons of character”
Reviewed 5 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I stayed here with my wife, daughter and in-laws for five nights in February. Booking the rental was very easy and Dagmar was a pleasure to correspond with via email. Her and her husband also proved to be very helpful in person and met us at the rental.
The house itself is fantastic. While we only had 5 people staying there, you could easily sleep 4 families including children. It's incredibly spacious and has everything you need in the modern kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms, including a crib which we used for our 22 month old.
The bedrooms are all upstairs and the view from each is great, as are the many skylights. It is modern without losing the character of the place. The tile work and stained glass in the bathroom is particularly beautiful.
The location is also really good. It's just a short drive to the historical district. There's a great restaurant only a block away, and a large grocery store a short 5 minute walk. There's also free parking on the street, which was nice as we had rented a car.
The only suggestions we would have for improvement are, first, the house had a definite musty smell the first night we stayed there but this went away after a day once we had all the windows open (it had been raining for a couple of weeks prior to our stay). It might be a good idea to air the place out if it hasn't been occupied for a while before guests arrive. But, as I mentioned, this only lasted a day.
Relating also to the rain: a couple of days into the stay, ants starting coming up in the two upstairs bathrooms, especially the ensuite bathroom where myself and wife were sleeping. While they were just the small brown ants and so harmless, it was nonetheless unpleasant to have to constantly get rid of the ants which, by the end of our stay were expanding into the bedroom and a few found their way into our suitcase. Again, being an old house and having rained for weeks prior to our arrival, ants will find a way in. Also, when we mentioned the problem the owners promptly called us and let us know where the ant killer (spray) was located. So we definitely appreciated this, and the ant population dropped after I sprayed the places where they appeared to be most concentrated. It might be helpful to put some ant traps in the place when unoccupied to deter these pests in the future. I suspect both these issues are a winter problem and unlikely to happen in the other seasons.

But these were really minor issues that didn't detract from our wonderful stay. Sintra was simply fantastic, and we all loved the house.
We'd all stay there again, and would recomend it as a place to stay for anyone visiting Sintra!

Dear Traveldude - Sorry about the ants. As you say, it can be wet in winter and they sometimes take refuge in houses. We've contacted a pest control company and hope this won't be a problem in the future. Thanks for the compliments about the house and glad you enjoyed your stay, despite the small visitors.
