Interaction with guests

I will be there for check-in and check-out and available to give any information about the accommodations and also about villages worth visiting, restaurants with fresh fish, market places, beaches, walks in nature, particular shopping store houses ... in a word, places to explore.

Other things to note

As it is a rural area the accommodation has a sceptic fosse, so you may not put any toilet tissue in the toilet but in a separate bin used for this purpose.
In order to explore Sintra, its historical sites and the beaches you must have your own car, public transport is scarce and expensive in the area.
This apartment is a reputable, legally registered and recognized rental, fully registered at Turismo de Portugal (12634/AL) and supervised by the local authorities, Camara Municipal de Sintra and ASAE. This accreditation can be checked any time at Turismo de Portugal database.

Due to its unique climatic conditions in Portugal, Sintra is turned
into an oásis of freshness during the hot summer months.

However, even when the days are warm and dry, the nights, turn
cool and damp. For this reason guests are requested to put
inside the building such soft furnishings as cushions and rugs etc. on
retiring for the night.

In keeping with the habits of the surrounding country life, noisy
gatherings (at night time) are discouraged. Open fires and live
torches cannot be permitted due to the high fire risk. But outside
this please feel free to make use of the terrace and the garden as
you like.
Hopefully you will enjoy the privacy and peace that this place offers and that your stay is as comfortable as if you were in your own home.

A small basic accommodation in a quiet area In a stunning part of the world with much to see within striking distance. However, you need independent transport in oroder to get the best out of this accommodation. There is an issue with the septic tank in this accommodation, you may not put any toilet tissue in the toilet, and a separate bin is used for this purpose.

Terrific space for a family with kids. Lots of garden space and beautiful, tranquil setting very near of all the Sintra attractions, including the tram connecting the town to the beach. Highly recommended.

We had a great experience in Sintra at Sofias house. The rooms were great with extensive gardens and beautiful terrace. Most important was the warm welcome and hospitality of Sofia herself. She met us at the train station, and showed us where to best spend our time in the Sintra area. The major sites are a short bus ride from the house, and nothing is more than a twenty minute drive away. Highly recommend this booking. Michael Cotten

Het huis is gunstig gelegen, buiten de drukte van Sintra, maar op korte afstand. Ook Lissabon is prime te bereiken, 30-45 min met de auto. Het huis is de onderste etage van een groter huis. De bovenste etages zijn bewoond door Sofia's moeder. De inrichting is wat ouder maar erg netjes, alles wat we nodig hadden was aanwezig en werkte prima. Er is Wifi en er staat een moderne TV met kabelbox. Sofia is een uitstekende gastvrouw. Ze heeft ons vriendelijk ontvangen en er was het een en ander aan broodjes, fruit en drinken in het huis aanwezig. Erg aardig. We hebben hier een week verbleven en hebben het prima gehad.

Nous avons passé deux très bonnes soirées grâce à la terrasse et au jardin de Sofia où nous avons pu profiter de la fraicheur et du calme pour bien nous reposer après de longues journées de visite sous la chaleur.
