Sintra for a week?

I am in the beginning stages of planning a 25 anniversary trip and am thinking of Portugal. We have travelled in Italy , Germany and Austria and have always enjoyed the smaller towns. Assisi was our favorite in Italy. Therefore- I am thinking of Sintra for the week- I believe we would be flying into Porto because that is where our FF would bring us. The dates are either end of August before school starts here in NY or sometime in Nov or Oct.

Any suggestions would be so appreciated!!

1. Re: Sintra for a week?

I think Sintra is a perfect base for a week''s stay, as it has several castles to offer and Lisbon is only 40 minutes away by very cheap train, if you want day trips out of Sintra and Queluz Palace is also on that train line. August gets very hot. I would prefer October.

If there would be still booking availibity (check that out on their website) I would recommend to stay at www.stayatcinco.com, a very friendly 1-apartment accomodation (but they're building a second one), the Number 1 here in the Hotel reviews.

Stayatcinco is a really nice place, but they are mostly booked.

Please note that you have about 200 miles between Porto and Sintra.
