We had a wonderful time at the Pensao Residencial which we found to be very clean and very comfortable with staff who could not have been more welcoming and helpful. It is very central for visiting many places,including the Moorish castle and the historical centre of Sintra and it is very easy and amazingly cheap to get to Lisbon for the day by train!
It is vital to tell the staff if you have no car, that you need to walk to the nearby villages and train station etc because they can tell you the back ways, paths through the park, and the small roads rather than walking along the main road which is dangerous.
They also reccomended some very nice restaurants quite close by, of varying prices.
It was very easy to get a taxi from the airport at Lisbon to the Pensao -it took about 30 minutes, and cost about £25.
We had a lovely time and would thoroughly reccomend this place for the older traveller who enjoys sight seeing by day and a pleasant and quiet place to stay in the evening.More
