We spent three days at the beautiful Quinta do Arco da Velha. Cristina is a wonderful host and gave great tips on shops, restaurants and things to do in the area. I particularly liked the tour to Capo de Roca via a narrow winding road through the Natural park Sintra-Cascais, which I would never have found otherwise.
As there were tennis rackets in the house, we even could take advantage of the tennis court. Thank you for a wonderful three days Cristina!

Located in close proximity to the historic palaces of Sintra and the beautiful clean beaches of Cascais and only a 30minute drive from the busy capital city of Lisbon. Sampling the very traditional Portuguese cuisine was awesome with so many local and rustic restaurants just a short drive away. The apartment was quiet and private, immaculately clean and very comfortable as well as good Wi-Fi access. The private pool and tennis court was great. Cristina was very helpful and informative and made us feel at home. Definitely will be back.
Quinta Do Arco Da Velha is situated in a beautiful area, close to many beautiful places, the historical center of Sintra incl. castles, mansions, Cascais and Estoril. It’s a nice place to stay, inserted into private property of typical Portuguese architecture, a beautiful garden, tennis court and beautiful swimming pool.
The apartment with independent entrance is spacious and private with airconditioning a good bed, a small kitchen and small patio outside.
After our arrival Christina - the owner - gave us a short tour of the nearby village, places to eat and shop.
We spent 4 nights instead of 2 as initially planned because we all fell in love with cristina's beautiful house and dog ! The girls just loved The tennis course, The pool, and we really enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful décoration of the house! The region of Sintra is Worth staying 1 week !
We will come back !
We spent four wonderful days in Quinta Do Arco Da Velha. Shortly after our arrival Christina,the owner, gave us a short tour of the nearby village; places to eat and shop. This was very informative and helped us orientate ourselves. The surroundings were very pleasant: it was lovely to spend time by the pool and the chapel was intriguing. The accommodation exceeded our expectations, it was very tasteful and very comfortable.The whole experience was great and we didn't want to leave!
