Take in majestic views of the Sintra Mountains and Castle of the Moors from this superbly renovated, 200-year-old villa. Nestled on two hectares of private lush forest, the home combines antique elegance, superb contemporary amenities, and ample open spaces for a yoga retreat or unforgettable reunion with family and friends. Walk downhill or drive minutes into Sintra Village.
Originally a summer escape for Portuguese nobility, the villa maintains an evocative period character in its terracotta rooftop, lantern sconces, and beautiful tilework. Recent renovations in 2014 and 2019 honored the home’s rich past while infusing it with high-end comforts and a fresh luminosity. In addition to the large main house, the property includes a single-bedroom guest cottage, Casa da Burra.
Enjoy long days in the Mediterranean sun and dappled shade of ancient trees, exploring the magic-garden-like estate and hiking along nearby trails. Cook delicious meals in the fully equipped kitchen, relishing them alfresco or in the restaurant-style dining room with multiple tables and tufted banquettes. At night, cuddle up with bottles of Sintra and Colares wines by the fireplace.
Sintra Village is 1.6 kilometers down the road, home to wonderful restaurants and the famous Pena Palace, an exquisite example of Romantic Portuguese architecture. Overlooking the city is the Moorish Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site which is also visible from the villa. Embark on a scenic wine tour; explore the nearby Sintra-Cascais Natural Park; and experience the sublime beauty of Cabo da Roca and the Atlantic beaches.

September 2020
The ultimate luxury stay in Sintra. There’s no other place like the villa. The views are spectacular it’s like heaven. The staff is phenomenal and the food was out of this world. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. One of the best times I’ve ever had in my life.

beautiful place and great host!

We went in with high expectations and yet our expectations were beyond surpassed. The home is absolutely stunning, and the location is incredible. Amir and David were incredibly helpful and responsive. We spent the entire weekend at the house. They arranged a private chef who worked at the villa for us who cooked the most delicious meals. David and his team helped make this weekend very memorable. Always making us laugh and making sure we had a drink in our hand. We will definitely be back soon!

I rented this stunning villa out for my best friends bachelorette with 14 other girls. We were completely blown away! The house is newly renovated and the definition of luxury. Everything was aesthetically pleasing! The backyard is the gem of the house, that’s where we spent most of our time. We took the all inclusive option with David & his team and every day the chef was cooking us different fresh foods (this is a must! It made our vacation 100x more relaxed and stress free not having to worry about feeding 25 picky women!) We had the best times with each other during our dinners outside on the table facing the beach. This house comfortably fit all 25 of us, it’s a huge space. David and his team helped us organize everything, it made our trip so much easier. We organized a yacht day and the yacht came with full staff who was serving us drinks the whole time, pure luxury! David recommended we take the boat to an island called Isla Mujeres for the day and we are greatful for this recommendation as it was one of our favourite days! Coolest little island ever and everyone parks their boats, plays music and just hangs out. All in all, if you’re wondering if you should book this house, don’t think anymore and just book it! It will make your entire trip. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this an unforgettable experience!!

Excellent attention from Valeria, the chef cooks excellent and the service from Javier the waiter also very well. I recommend bringing a speaker because they do not have and also shampoo and soap because there was not in the bathrooms.
