“Nice location but need a car”
Reviewed 8 October 2006

We had an apartment for two people and it had plenty of room and it could actually sleep three more people. The lady that we dealt with when booking in did not speak english but we managed to communicate through pointing and gestures etc. The photos on the brochures look very flash but in reality the villa is looking quite neglected. I thought this was a real shame as it is a great location and was obviously built to a high standard. The only problem we had was the shower - it was a hose shower and the bracket on the wall was broken so you had to hold the shower head in your hand. Although the location is great keep in mind that it is well outside of Sintra and so a car is best. There was a tram but we couldn't work out if it went into Sintra and it also looked painfully slow.
I think I would return here as the price suited our budget and although the place was neglected we didn't experience any major problems because of it.
