I have been meaning to write about this charming Inn since we returned from Portugal. It would be a shame to go to Sintra and miss staying here. But I would echo previous reviewers sentiments regarding the charming rooms/vistas and the lovely relaxing garden. From our attractive comfortable (never did find a soft bed in Portugal or Spain unless staying...

This place is simply magical - a perfect antedote to the stresses of modern life. Set in a lush green valley in Sintra, every window of the old manor house has stunning views; distant domes and palaces (illuminated at night), beautifully manicured gardens and patios filled with exotic plants. The interior is spectacular too, with all the rooms tastefully decorated...

I stayed at Quinta da Capela for three nights in August with my wife. We rented one of their suites, Suite #1, and it was spacious and absolutely lovely. The suite had a private front sitting porch, a large bathroom (with both a tub and shower), a living room, bedroom (with mosquito netting -- but we didn't use it), and...

The grounds of this historic place are absolutely beautiful. This would be a really great place to go with friends because there are so many cool places to sit and chat over drinks while enjoying breathtaking views of the countryside, moorish castle ruins and palaces in the hills surrounding you (be sure and bring our own cocktails/wine - their limited...

I was greatly disappointed with Quinta da Capela. After reading all the great reviews my anticipation of staying here was really high (perhaps that was the problem). Yes the setting is gorgeous, and the main house is charming and rustic but if its comfort you are after give it a miss. The bed was far too small my feet hung...

This place is precisely as you see it, charming and beautifully restored. However, it is not without egregious problems, not the least of which their definite inability to be honest about confirming a reservation. Having arrived, I did not receive the suite I requested but demurred and said nothing. It had been confirmed, and worse, I was told after 2...

I have traveled throughout Europe: both Western, Eastern, Scandinavia and the Mediterranean. I can say without reservation that Quinta da Capela rates right at the top; simply put, it is breathtakingly beautiful. It occupies a mountainous perch close to the rocky Atlantic. My wife and I felt upon waking up that we were floating in the clouds, and were yet...
