Journey along Lisbon’s Atlantic coast with ease on a small-group day trip, limited to just eight people to guarantee personalized attention from your guide. Take a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed Pena National Palace, enjoy time at your leisure in the historic center of Sintra, and stop at the affluent coastal town of Cascais.

Although you have to pay the entry fee into the Pena Park and make a bit of a trek to visit the Chalet, its certainly worth it. Impressively restored following neglect and a fire, the chalet has some interesting and informative displays about the Countess and is certainly worth a look around.

We decided to walk to the chalet from the Palace - and it is not a short walk by all means (take the tram at least one leg). The walk is nice though through the park and gardens of the grounds and enough to keep it interesting but extends the duration. The Chalet was a nice little house to visit quickly that has gardens around it. The inside of the house was small and you won't spend more than 30 minutes inside to view it. Altogether, this is a nice detour and site off the path worth seeing if you have the time to afford in Sintra. Take the tram to cut the duration and bring your camera as it a nice place to take pictures as it is quite unique house.

If you have a decent camera with a telephoto lens, you can get nice shots of Pena from within this part of the park. The house is pretty, and the gardens are nice. Unfortunately I had left my camera back in the room.

Such a delight to tour this fairy tale like alpine chalet. A beautiful setting in the woods provides a scenic location for this unique chalet. The interior is absolutely beautiful! The use of cork on the inside and outside of the chalet is quite unique. We have travelled to many European countries and never encountered such an adorable abode!

Never seen anything quite like this place. I love historical buildings and seen a few (National Trust member), but this was something really different. Lots of use of bark as a decorative finish and cladding inside and outside the building. Intricate decor. Well worth the long walk through the Pena Park to see this gem.
