This B&B is located in a beautiful villa within a 10-minute walk to the historic centre of Sintra (or 5 minutes to a train station where you can take a hop-on & off bus). The hosts, Filipe and Cristina, are very knowledgeable about the area, the history and how to negotiate the local roads. As world travelers themselves, they know how to prepare their guests for a wonderful stay. The Villa contains 4 rooms on the second floor. Guests have the use of a dining room where you can make coffee or tea. Breakfast is served here as well. My husband and I stayed here 2 nights after traveling in Portugal for 2 weeks. Parking a car is not a problem. We highly recommend this B&B. .
