“Beware, the apartment is right on a busy street”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We were most disappointed on arrival to discover that the apartment backed onto the exterior wall of the property behind which is a pretty busy uphill road to Sintra. The noise and fumes were extremely unpleasant.

We decided almost instantly to leave as we felt the website had been misleading; we explained to the owner and she insisted on the first night's payment.

The free parking is outside of the property on the other side of the road and is simply an unsecured lay-by.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed 28 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The place is beautiful, the apartments are comfortable and tasteful.
Quiet and rest are guaranteed.
Good location, but it's necessary to have a car with which one arrives in few minutes to the most beautiful and interesting places of the region: Sintra and Cascais among others, besides several beaches.
On top of everything, guests are treated with a lot of pampering and friendliness from the landlady!

Cristina's place is like a little paradise! We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed her beautiful house a lot. It's very tastefully decorated, has everything you need, comfy beds, warm shower, a kitchen with all appliances and utensils and above all a lovely and very helpful host. Plus - there is a pool and a tennis court!! It's quiet, restaurants and cafés are in walking distance and the Sintra National Forest is just around the corner. All in all - I can highly recommend this place!

“Exceptional Quinta in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

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!
