We loved Cinco.The apartment is in a great location within walking distance of several of Sintra's iconic buildings, and some very nice restaurants. It's a real home from home, and gives you the space, freedom and privacy that you just don't get at a hotel, with Carole the perfect hostess.
The gardens and views are lovely, the lounge (with comfy sofa bed) is light and airy, the bedroom cosy, the fridge is stocked with all sorts of goodies for breakfast, and the full-sized kitchen also has a washing machine (always handy mid-trip). Nice large bathroom. Good free wifi connection.
We found it hard to drag ourselves away, but eventually wandered over to Quinta da Regaleira, as well as touring around various other local attractions. We stayed two nights, and ate well at two nearby restaurants (Tulhas and Lawrence's). Sintra is a special place, and so is Cinco.
