We had a lovely stay here last weekend while attending a friends wedding. It is extremely comfortable with all little things thought of. It is furnished very tastefully, and Filipe bringing a delicious breakfast box each morning was the icing on the cake.

About
Description
Come stay in a beautifully converted 18th century chapel set in the heart of Sintra, Portugal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A CAPELA offers a unique experience for those wishing to stay in a historic More building while visiting Sintra with its many romantic architectures. The chapel has been designed with a modern interior covering an open plan layout and vaulted ceilings with a breathtaking private outdoor lounge area to enjoy the mountain views lit up by the Moorish Castle in the evenings. Ideal for couples on a romantic break or families of four. Within walking distance to a variety of quaint cafes, shops and excellent restaurants. We are 5 minutes walk from Sintra Station and the meeting point for sightseeing tours and tuk tuks. The beach tram is a short 5 minutes walk and the local antique market 2 minutes walk from us . A beautiful breakfast is included each morning with a variety of choices. The venue is also available for weddings, private or corporate events upon enquiry. Less
