This place was really cute but difficult to get to! A bit far and confusing to find, I actually had to ride a tuk tuk to get to it lol Not very big, but pretty none the less.

I stayed overnight in Sintra and had time to fully explore the grounds of Pena Palace. It's a lovely stroll down to the rebuilt chalet, and the story of the Countess is interesting, but currently, there's very little to warrant paying the additional admission to...More

The Chalet is definitely worth a visit when having enough time in Sintra. If you only have one day and have not seen the Mourish castle or the Palace of Pena, then the Chalet might not be in your list. If you have seen the...More

It is a very nice bulding, fine architecture. Beautifully restored, all in wood. Near Pena Palace. It was a very pleasant visit.

it is a very beautiful house, I am glad we could do the walking and went to see it, it deserves a visit, but only from the outside, I would not recommend paying to go inside.

Beautiful and surprising are the words to best describe it. Serene and calm atmosphere. Walking around and seeing the garden

This place is definitely worth a visit outside. I would not pay to go in - you can look in the windows and pretty much see everything but the outside is spectacular.

Probably the less visited site in Sintra Parks and Palaces, yet deserving an attentive visit due to its originality and uniqueness. The Chalet sits inside Pena´s Park, about 1,5 mile from Pena´s Palace (see picture with map). Built by King D. Fernando II for his...More
