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

Very comfortable and spacious suites in a beautifully restored quinta and granary – The quinta itself has the original carved furniture that was made for it and also the original blue and white tiles round the bottom part of every room. The kitchen has the original built-in thick marble-topped central table/work surface. All amazing! The suites are beautifully furnished with... More

Our room was spacious, every convenience we could think of was in the room and the grounds are 5 star. While at first impression the lodging may be a bit... More

This is a beautifully restored comfortable property well run by it's owners. It's well located to access Sinatra or Lisbon by road or rail. We enjoyed our stay, the only downside was the area it's in. Whilst it may be the 'real' Portugal some seek we prefer to stroll to restaurants and bars in attractive surroundings which unfortunately you just... More
