On the internet website, it shows a wonderful swimming pool. When arriving at the house, we were so surprised to see that the swimming pool was not working and it seemed to be unused since a long time. The atmosphere seemed nice at the beginning but there is no intimacy. You can hear every noise from the room, outside, dogs... More

We loved the She Pine Tree House! From the staff (Tomaz and Bebe), to the quirky and cool house, to the comfy rooms, gorgeous views, and delicious breakfast, tea and espresso ... All was wonderful. The hotel is a bit out of the way, but we didn't mind. It's in a charming small town with easy access to Sintra and... More

Great stay, well the rooms has not for everyone decor but it was really nice place with homely feel. We were welcome by glass of wine. And the must have is the food - heaven! Pity we stayed only one night in june 2011.

We were recomended to stay here from someone who stayed before, it is a beautiful old house overlooking the hills and the host Tomaz is an extremely welcoming and interesting person. I did feel the whole experience was a bit ramshackle. The room we had was lovely, with great views but the fan struggled to have an effect against the... More

The She Pine Tree is a one off; it is a museum but without any of the constraints of such a place. We were made to feel very welcome despite arriving quite late on a Sunday evening - a meal was waiting for us and we ate there each evening for four nights. We ate very well and each evening... More

The place is in a small village on the countryside where apparently the neighbours keep dogs locked in their gardens, therefore 24hrs around the clock dogs are barking making it very difficult to sleep, don't event consider opening the windows to get some fresh air! Also, the breakfast hygiene is beyond terrible. Cheeses, hams, yoghurts etc are just standing in... More

Nobody was there when we arrived but, when he showed up 30 min later, the owner was very friendly and spoke good Italian. He gave us the apartment and gate keys and just left us free to use everything. We did not sleep in the main house, but in a (larger) second property 5min away. The place was really big,... More

It is an interesting property with lots of art and antiques etc. However, it just isn't working as a smooth guest facility. We were left standing on the street, locked out, for 30 minutes, despite arriving exactly at the time we said we would.....no one was at the property to let us in. Our room was in the basement and...

When we drove up to the house we had our doubts seeing it from outside, but as soon as we came inside we were just taken over by its charm. Inside the walls are covered with beautiful drawings and paintings of the father of the now owner Tomás. I also loved all the family pictures and memorabilia. There are a... More

This place has dramatically changed based on prior reviews, sorry to say not for the good. Thomas (a nice guy and architect) took over the operation of the B&B from his kids last year when they decided to jump ship and take off to the big city of Lisbon. Thomas has other more important things to take care of and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome To The House Of The She Pine Tree! The House of the She Pine Tree was built at the end of the XIX Century for a local farmer´s family, and expanded in the 30´s, when it was redesigned to its “Sintra Chalet” looks. It sits on the highground edge of the time forgotten villages of Sabugo and Vale de Lobo, in the county of the historic town of sintra (a Unesco World Heritage Site). The village rolls down the last west facing slope where the hills of Carregueira and Olela merge, with breathtaking views of the mountain of Sintra and its valley, with fabulous unlimited 270º degrees sunsets panoramas! The sea from Guincho to Ericeira lies just behind the horizon. The house was bought in the early sixties by the journalist, war reporter, radio and tv producer and speaker, painter, artist, award-wining novelist, theater and children´s stories writer, publicist, poet, antiquarian, art collector Olavo d´Eça Leal (Vd. Bio). The house will be the property of a foundation and hosts the temporary and permanent contributions of drawings, paintings, furnishings and personal objects of Olavo, constituting a Museum House. In order to sustain its maintenance and support the conservation of the house and its collection, the house is operating as an inn/bed & breakfast, a non-profit charity. The rooms are decorated with the art collection, furnishings, and personal objects of Olavo, on loan or donated by his widow, Emilia, and his son, Tomaz. The collection is constituted mainly by drawings from 1926 to 1976, the year he passed away in Oxford, covering 50 years of his work. ... more   less
