How often do you get to stay in a 16th century windmill. Not actually in Sintra, but in the national park, about 15 minute drive to Sintra. Windmill was renovated, but some time ago and could use a little modernizing, but cozy and comfortable. Top...More

The location, and accomodations were outstanding. The hospitality of the owner was great. There was so much charm and so many nooks and crannies to put items that you never had the usual clutter of other places lacking space. Very well decorated interior. Cozy fireplace....More

About the neighbourhood
Located at 7 km from Sintra, Gouveia is a privileged village for is excellent geographical location. The lovers of quiet beaches have in Aguda Beach (2,5 km), Apples Beach (4,9 km), Magoito Beach (3 km) and Azenhas do Mar (2,9 km), a recommended stop point. Inevitably missing, for surf and bodyboard lovers, Big Beach (8 km) is undoubtedly an obligatory passage point (place of the IBA World Tour 2014). Those who want to breathe fresh air, the Gouveia and Fontanelas pine forests offers the ideal place for a snack, or just to spend a few minutes in absolute calm and in touch with nature. Around every corner lies in verse, a bit of Gouveia history, with the particularity of being counted in blocks of popular taste.Try a typical “queijada de Sintra” and indulge yourself while you visit the hist... more
