Quinta do Corvo is a collection of charming, individually decorated apartments set in a magical oasis in the hills overlooking Sintra.
The wild, rambling gardens will take you a full afternoon to explore, offering surprises at every turn and there are countless intriguing sculptures hiding in delightfully overgrown fringes. The rooms are simple, comfortable and classy and there is also a swimming pool as well as chickens, sheep, goats, cats and dogs to make friends with.
This is wonderful place to holiday and would be perfect for either couples or families with small children who will be able to safely explore the gardens on their own. The beach is 10 minutes’ drive away and there are numerous restaurants within easy reach to suit all tastes and budgets.
Quinta do Corvo is located in a national park, with many interesting walking and sightseeing opportunities, including the beautiful, eccentric winter palaces where the royal family and their court used to spend the summer.
The owners and hosts, Ben and Manuel will make you feel part of the family for the duration of your stay, and the twice-weekly barbeques on the terrace are a relaxed way to get to know your hosts as well as other guests.
We’ve been visiting Quinta do Corvo regularly for many years and would recommend it to anyone looking for something special and quite different.
For us, Quinta do Corvo is a little paradise and we hope you find paradise here as well.
