Wonderful, sympathetically restored Quinta with fantastic hosts in Penny and Tony. Went with a friend for a winter weekend break and much needed rest - this was the perfect spot. We had a beautiful, spacious room in the Barn with doors to the poolside area (sadly the weather was too cold for a dip!). Penny provided details of a masseuse... More

Incredible. Due to TA reviews, we chose this as a first stop on our trip from the USA, and a month later we're still pining for Quinta do Scoto. We'd stay again in a heartbeat. Tony & Penny are extremely gracious and helpful. After booking, they'll send a big email: follow all their advice ... car rental, where to eat,... More

We stayed there in June 2014. The place was quiet, had a great pool and was very clean. As well it has a large property with a field and a horse or two. The hosts offered a great suggestion for dinner at a local restaurant which was a short and fun walk along a country lane. We had the local... More

Tony and Penny were wonderful and caring hosts. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. Penny prepared an amazing breakfast. They were very helpful with all our needs from info on trains, arranging for taxi rides, directions to all sites to see. It was helpful to have the train station nearby which takes you to Sintra and to Lisbon. We... More

from the moment we booked the Quinta, Penny was in touch with us, upgraded us to a suite because there were three, and when one had to cancel we kept the lovely two room suite. Two comfortable double beds and a complimentary bottle of wine were awaiting us on our arrival. btw, use Penny's directions to the Quinta, which were... More

Beautiful old quinta, ideally situated in a country setting but very convenient for exploring Sintra, Lisbon and many other interesting places, as the station is nearby. Loved Tony, Penny and Charlotte who made us so welcome and were so helpful. The rooms are stunning - exceptionally spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast in the main house is a feast. There... More

A lovely escape to the Portuguese country, but very close to both central Lisbon, the airport, and Sintra. Tony and Penny take every care with all details, including lovely treats in the rooms as well as delicious breakfast and comfy beds. Bathtubs too are fantastic :-)

Tony and Penny are terrific hosts, providing a lot of valuable information. They had restored an old farmhouse to a wonderful Quinta, where we did not miss anything. We should have booked for a longer time.The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The location for visting Sintra is perfect, even if you need a car. We can highly recommend this... More

Our stay at the Quinta was a highlight of our trip. Over the course of our month of travel we stayed in several nice accommodations but none as lovely and special as the Scoto. The meticulous restoration of the old Quinta has been done with incredible attention to detail which has brought it back to its original glory. Our enormous... More
