Arriving after midnight from a very long flight we were greeted by Oseias and Michel as if it were in the morning. They took the time , even at that hour to show us around and explain things to us.They also helped carry our heavy luggage up the stairs. We rented the 3 bedroom apartment (we were 2 adults and 2 children) on the top floor. The apartment was charming and had ample room for the four of us. All mods and cons were provided. The views from all the windows of beautiful Sintra were remarkable. No air conditioning but you found that you didn't really need it as Sintra is probably cooler than say Lisbon by approx 5-6 degrees. You are right in the centre of the historic centre so you are literally a few minutes away from all the shops and restaurants but yet as you are situated up in the mountain, you do not experience any noise.We had a rental car with us and even though there was no parking on site, we had no problem parking the car on the street (even in the middle of summer).Oseias and Michel were always so helpful, informative and gracious and always gave good tips as to where to go etc..If you are travelling to Sintra, which is a must if you visit Portugal, then you must stay here.The villa itself has been immaculately restored by Oseias and Michel .The decor and attention to detail is divine and Oseias is quite the artisan, he makes all the curtains and bedheads and some of the artwork in the villa himself. The gardens are also immaculately attended to. Definately will be back again.Oh, and their beautiful golden retriever (who by the way was never a bother, I actually think my kids annoyed the dog more than anything) Gardier was lovely!
