How often do you get to stay in a 16th century windmill. Not actually in Sintra, but in the national park, about 15 minute drive to Sintra. Windmill was renovated, but some time ago and could use a little modernizing, but cozy and comfortable. Top...More

This is a wonderful quirky place for children, practical for adults and a wonderful location for either beaches or Sintra. You can combine the two - Praia das Macos nearby has a lovely old tram which will take you to Sintra.

The lovers of quiet beaches have in Aguda Beach (2,5 km), Apples Beach (4,9 km), Magoito Beach (3 km) and Azenhas do Mar (2,9 km), a recommended stop point.

Those who want to breathe fresh air, the Gouveia and Fontanelas pine forests offers the ideal place for a snack, or just to spend a few minutes in absolute calm and in touch with nature. Around every corner lies in verse, a bit of Gouveia history, with the particularity of being counted in blocks of popular taste.Try a typical “queijada de Sintra” and indulge yourself while you visit the hist...
