We sent them two reservation requests via email and their website three weeks before our trip, no response. We then called, two weeks before our trip. A man who does not speak English picks up and says there should be availability and to please send an email. We send another email, this time in Portuguese. No response. Now I finally call one week before our trip and the lady says they are full, but they're under-capacity anyway, and not responding to emails. No apology. If you are not able to make a phone call in Portugeuse to reserve your spot, don't bother. The lack of an apology doesn't bode well either for in-house service when you arrive.

Hello Tania, sorry for the late answer to your comment, but the Quinta was closed for some years. We have reopened under a new management last march, and if you would like to visit us you will be welcome. Best regards Ana

We stayed here for 6 nights in August and it is just the ticket for a lovely peaceful hideaway for a week or so. Beautiful grounds and pool and lovely owners who collected us from the airport. Great breakfast served until 10.30 each day too. The rooms are on the small size for the price and could do with a fridge, but neither were big issues. Finally, the quinta is a great base for exploring the region, but is also just about within walking distance of the great village restaurants if you just want to pig out!

I stopped here for three days while on a business swing through Europe to take a break from the road. This is the best place I have ever stayed, and I travel a lot. The only thing missing was my wife as it is an amazingly romantic and magical place. A 16th Century hacenda (sp?) lovingly restored. Comfortable room, charming garden and grounds. Delicious breakfast. And, of course, wonderful owners. I sorry to have to leave and would have gladly stayed the summer if I could, wandering the hills, doing the quick drive over to Sintra to explore the palaces, castles and parks, reading in the evening and enjoying the very excellent art, including a Roman fresco. Few places inspire poetry, but this one did: To live amidst beauty Graced by simple elegance Is to be rejuvenated By the kindness of God Next year it will be perfectr because I shall take my wife with me.

We were very disappointed with this B&B. It seems to have been fitted out about 20 years ago and nothing has changed. We stayed in Limao and two incredibly squeaky old twin beds with sheets so old they were nearly transparent. Unlike the house the suites are fitted out very cheaply with furniture charity shops would reject. Cushions are worn, picture mounts mouldy and although it was fairly clean the place felt dirty and smelt musty, especially the cupboard under the sink. Oh and our toilet did not even flush properly until it was fixed. I was gutted we paid £150 a night for such a poor quality place. Breakfast - well, the cereal was stale and fruit salad is made the night belore and comes out day after day - explaining why the melon on our first day was curled up and going rotten. Orange juice was cheap processed supermarket stuff until we commented on that, then it was watered down squeezed orange juice. We ended up cooking breakfast in the room for two mornings and it was much nicer and fresher. The website talks of guests being able to use the common areas but even though only 4 of us were staying we were told off for going in the house, instructed it was only for use for breakfast. Odd as it is set up for guests and the owners live separately. On the positve side they do spend time and money on the nice gardens and the owners were helpful and well meaning. But they need to completely revamp this very tired guesthouse - after staying there it made sense why we could get a last minute booking. I felt rather ripped off and we will not be going back.

We have had many of our guest returning not only once but multiple times, therefore the review contrasts with the overall appreciation we have had since the inception of our business. Some of those returning guests did occupy the exact same “Limão” room. All you need to do is read the other reviews right here on tripadvisor. In addition, we are intrigued by comments about the breakfasts, as they are one of the highlights of the Quinta, as you can see also by other comments from previous guests. The common rooms, the swimming pool, the gardens and the farm are open to all of our guests, doors are open and there is nobody controlling the in and out of the clients since we want our guests to feel at home. Finally the furniture in the Guest House is decorated in a more simpler manner than the Main House, yet with same quality of bed linen (also to note, there is a difference of price between rooms in guest house compared to the main house).

We are family of four. We stayed in the Quinta for 14 days in July. The location of the Quinta is just perfect, close to Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais, and they are about 10 beaches around, with one on the "TOP 10 in Europe" list. Everything is 10 to 30 minutes away by car: beaches, restaurants, castles, wineries, Lisbon Aquarium etc. Lisbon (European Havana) is just around the corner. Sintra will steal your heart for 2-3 days. About Quinta: the first what we found out when we arrived was an awesome garden, very green, with old palm trees, blooming hortencias, banana plants, pool and magnificent views. We stayed in the guesthouse (Limao and Lima) so we had 2 floor apartment with two bathrooms, living room and 2 bedrooms. It was comfortable place for our family, we could also use kitchen facilities. Both bathrooms were very clean. There was enough space for our wardrobe. Breakfasts served in the villa were excellent. Ask for tomato jam! Patrons were very hospitable and very kind. It was a pleasure to meet such nice people. We hope to visit the Quinta soon again.
