Keytel International's reservations team visited this hotel on a trip to explore this area, and we were impressed how easy it is to find this Pousada, an ideal base to see the ''pink palace'' of Queluz, directly in front of the Pousada. The Pousada is comfortable, very calm, and you can appreciate the historical relevance of the building which houses it, in the context of its former function as the guards' room for the defence of the palace 50m in front of it and visible from much of the Pousada. Lovely breakfast with freshly made local pastries, and the restaurant (which is actually in front, set in the palace's original kitchen) is a truly great experience of Portuguese cuisine. The town nearby is a typical small regional one, so enjoyable for a walk and a drink, with some shops. But in my view the Palace and the Pousada are the big attractions here and this is a good stepping stone for exploring the area of Queluz/Sintra/Lisbon and even Estoril and Cascais, all within 30 minutes' drive.
