This is a beautiful B&B. Old house with a only a few rooms. Bright and clean, gorgeous breakfast room with an excellent continental style breakfast. Really peaceful and lovely gardens and a great view from the entrance porch. We travelled with a baby and Maria was wonderful and accommodating in every way. The B&B is a bit of a walk from the "old" part of Sintra, but a great location relative to the train station, as well as restaurants and coffee. The owner does have a large and playful dog. Very nice, but big and likes attention, just to be aware.
