“Really special, beautiful home, wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

This B&B is a work of art in itself. The house and rooms are beautifully put together. The staff are amazing and so welcoming. The dinner is highly-recommended, as is the home-made breakfast in the conservatory in the mornings. Location-wise, this is a bit off the beaten track but is still a great option to visit Sintra. A car makes it easier, but staff will also pick you up from the train station. Can't recommend this place more!

Nice B&B. The rooms are oke. It is the location and scenary as well as hospitality that makes it a more than a average place to be. Breakfast is nothing special. Diner is oke.
Lisboa, Sintra, Estoril en Cascais are nearby if you have a car.
Ask for the rooms downstairs. More privacy. The garden is a great place to enjoy the sun or shade. De pool is small and dirty.

Since the moment you arrive you'll see that this place is very different from a "typical" hotel. Starting with the informal reception in this is a kind of “museum” house you can spend your time here in a familiar and cozy ambience.
If the weather allows it Serra de Sintra provides a wonderful passage to be enjoyed during the dinner or in the afternoon near the pool.

I stayed in this lovely house for 3 days and it was a cozy experience. The place looks like a dool house, well decorated and full of wonderful art. The view from where we had breakfast is fantastic. The rooms are spacious and confortable.
It´s easy to get to Sintra (a must-see place in Portugal) and the staff is very kind and helpful.
I suggest you to have the dinner served everyday...it´s delicious and served with a big smile.

I recommend it 100%.

I found The House of the She- Pine Tree while searching the net for a pleasant place to stay, at an affordable price, in Sintra.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and I wanted something special, with charm.
The She-Pine Tree House is 15 minutes by car from the center of Sintra and is simply lovely! The cozy decoration, the walls covered in paintings and drawings, the breakfast in the balcony, the flowers, the beautiful antiques all over the house and the small garden made it the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Moreover the view over the city by night and the Pena National Palace mountain is astonishing.

Every room has its own uniqueness, I chosen to stay at the Chapel Room, which is in fact in a old recovered chapel, although the very friendly and welcoming staff made us a free upgrade to their best room, they also provided a bottle of champagne with a nice discount.

My boyfriend loved the surprise! We will definitely comeback to The She-Pine Tree House.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome To The House Of The She Pine Tree! The House of the She Pine Tree was built at the end of the XIX Century for a local farmer´s family, and expanded in the 30´s, when it was redesigned to its “Sintra Chalet” looks. It sits on the highground edge of the time forgotten villages of Sabugo and Vale de Lobo, in the county of the historic town of sintra (a Unesco World Heritage Site). The village rolls down the last west facing slope where the hills of Carregueira and Olela merge, with breathtaking views of the mountain of Sintra and its valley, with fabulous unlimited 270º degrees sunsets panoramas! The sea from Guincho to Ericeira lies just behind the horizon. The house was bought in the early sixties by the journalist, war reporter, radio and tv producer and speaker, painter, artist, award-wining novelist, theater and children´s stories writer, publicist, poet, antiquarian, art collector Olavo d´Eça Leal (Vd. Bio). The house will be the property of a foundation and hosts the temporary and permanent contributions of drawings, paintings, furnishings and personal objects of Olavo, constituting a Museum House. In order to sustain its maintenance and support the conservation of the house and its collection, the house is operating as an inn/bed & breakfast, a non-profit charity. The rooms are decorated with the art collection, furnishings, and personal objects of Olavo, on loan or donated by his widow, Emilia, and his son, Tomaz. The collection is constituted mainly by drawings from 1926 to 1976, the year he passed away in Oxford, covering 50 years of his work. ... more   less
