I first visited Quinta in December 2012 for a weekend. i was so pleased, the location, the beautiful properties on the land that have been renovated, the peacefulness and above all the welcome that I received from Tony, Penny and Charlotte.
The location was peaceful yet close by to a few good local restaurants and also the train line providing access into Lisbon. Sintra was also relatively close by, a picturesque village, well worth a visit.
The accommodation was absolutely lovely, gorgeous decor and very spacious and clean. The rooms were very well equiped with tea/coffee facilities and some nice finishing touches to include fresh milk and soft drinks/beer in the fridge along with a welcome bottle of wine to help you unwind. I was fortunate to have one of the rooms/suites which looked out over the swimming pool, but unfortunately it was December, therefore not the weather for swimming. The room/suite was lovely and warm with a heated floor. The bathroom was great, the shower had a large flow shower head.
Personally, as a guest on my own I couldn't have asked for more. The hosting from Tony & Penny was outstanding. They were so welcoming and were genuinely interested in getting to know a bit about me (as opposed to being handed a room key at check-in which is quite often the norm), they couldn't do enough to help me with regard to information that I may need to include taxi's, resaturants etc. a lovely kind family. The breakfast was plentyful with a huge range of food to set you up for your day.
Subsequently, I visited Portugal in December 2013, and with the location being so perfect for me, I stayed once again at Quinta and had an equally and enjoyable stay albeit just not long enough and once again, too cold for the swimming pool.
I definately plan to bring my family to Quinta in the Summer months and really look forward to visiting again.
