- A Essência de Sintra -

Sintra, Portugal - arguably one of the most romantic areas in Portugal and recognised by UNESCO World Heritage for its outstanding beauty

Our accommodation options are situated within one of the historic estates in the heart of Sintra’s Estefania district – ‘Quinta da Capela’.  

We have two unique accommodation options for an unforgettable experience while visiting Sintra. The estate’s signature accommodation includes a converted chapel, built in 1789 designed with a modern open plan interior, yet revealing hints of its historic architecture. Recognised as one of the top 10 accommodations in Sintra and a must for any honeymoon or that special anniversary. 

Our second accommodation is our private garden villa with a private salt water pool, surrounded by lush fruit trees set off against beautiful mountain views of the Moorish Castle ruins.



Palácio Nacional de Sintra

Visit the national palace of Sintra dating back to 15th and 16th century. Situated in the heart of Sintra's historic old town, the twin chimneys is typical symbol of the Sintra skyline. Architecture includes a mix of Gothic, Manueline and Moorish styles.

Parque e Palácio Nacional da Pena

Built over a humble monastery that originally stood there in the 16th century and was dedicated to the Order of Saint Jerome and which was flattened by the powerful earthquake of 1755, the Pena Palace was built in its place and has some of the best views across the mountain range.

Quinta da Regaleira

Built in the early 20th century by the millionaire António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro (1848-1920), who, with the assistance of architect Luigi Manini (1848-1936), built this palace in a romantic revivalist style, with imitations of Gothic, Manueline and Renaissance architectural styles. Mixed with a mythical and esoteric symbolism, definitely not to be missed.

Palácio de Monserrate

Nestled between the mountains of Sintra you will find Monserrate Palace. Once the summer resort of the Portuguese court, the place is designed with Indian, Moorish and Gothic influences and has extensive wild gardens filled with exotic plants from all corners of the world.
