The Cinco Bed & Breakfast, which was actually a wonderful little private apartment, was our favorite lodging in our month-long trip to Portugal and Spain. We stayed here for 3 nights (not long enough) April 21-24, 2013. It is located in a quiet residential area but close enough to Sintra's town center and shopping, restaurants, bus stops, post office, tourist information center and UNESCO palaces. The apartment is comfortable and roomy; the kitchen is well appointed and we appreciated the breakfast provisions, including home-grown oranges to make fresh-squeezed juice. A washing machine located in the apartment was appreciated so we could do our laundry. The pool looked inviting, but it was rather cool when we were there so we did not get a chance to use it. Carole was very helpful and informative about local points of interest and customs. Being from the UK she was easy for us monolingual Americans to understand:) We highly recommend this quaint get-away other persons visiting Sintra.
