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 at a US Chain hotel) and spacious room, one could relax on the chaise and gaze out the window at 4(four) castles at once! It was like being in a fairytale but with one's eyes wide open. The castles are magical to visit too.
We dined one night at the incredible Hotel Tivoli Palacio de Seteais which was a wonderful experience. A special treasure indeed.
The only thing to be aware of is that the Quinta da Capela is outside Sintra in the mountains/hills. One needs a car to stay there and we were not so happy about driving at night!!
Even with that fact, we still wouldn't have missed it for the world.
