About the property

House in Sintra, Lisbon Coast, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 2m Walk To The Village Facilities, 15m Walk To The Main Historical Attractions

We fall in love with the place, the old house and the big beautiful romantic garden, and in 2011 decided to rent the small house, all rebuilt and refurnished. The location, in São Pedro, an old and picturesque village in the middle of the walking pathways to the Pena Palace and Gardens, Moorish Castle, and the village of Sintra is a must, as well as its proximity to different kind of entertainment: trekking, mountain activities, 7 golf courses, wonderful beaches, cinemas, shopping centers, etc. and to places like Cascais and Estoril , where there are other attractions and to the city of Lisbon( only 25, driving or 35 by train).

About Maria Jose Stock

I`m a married woman who fall in love with S. Pedro de Sintra! After retiring from 40 years as a university professor and my husband as an economist , we are lucky to live in such a place. We love life, family and friends, gardening, trekking in the mountain nearby, playing golf (6 golf courses in 10 m by car), reading a book in the garden, going to Cascais, Estoril and Lisbon (10 and 20 km from here), for dinner, movies, concerts, exhibitions, to the beach... All this, possible in this wonderful scenario: Sintra!

We bought the two cute houses and the marvellous garden, we have done a rebuilding and decided to live in one of the houses and rent the other one; being so, our renters will have the chance to stay as long as they want and profit from all the facilities the place has to offer.

Maria Jose Stock purchased this in 1990

Why Maria Jose Stock chose Sintra

Sintra and its surroundings are one of the most beautiful and quiet places in Portugal. We had the chance to find this house and garden and we choosed to live here after we retired. In the middle of the World Heritage Park and Village, S Pedro de Sintra stays far from the crowds, but is very easy to access and close to Lisbon (20 km in highway), to Estoril and Cascais (10 km by car), as well as to 6 golf courses, to several beaches and to other facilities, such as Hospitals, cinemas, shoping centers, etc. The village of S Pedro de Sintra has everything at walking distance from the house: pharmacy, banks, restaurants, cafes, churches, places to buy neswspapers and groceries, gardens, and the house is located in the middle of the walkways to the Castelo dos Mouros, Palácio da Pena, etc.

What makes this unique

Very convenient place, quiet area, but at the same time very close to the main places to visit, to restaurants, in the middle of the Park trecks, enough room to park and the house, just rebuilt and refurnished, has all the facilities, even hair dryer.

The unique romantic garden is the highlight of the property.

Several reviews from renters ( UK, France, Spain, Germany, Estonia, Australia), giving their opinion about the house, all of them: 5/5.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"One of my favourite houses I ever rented. Very quiet place, but very close to the main places, 10 to 20m walking to Castelo dos Mouros, Palácio da Pena, Vila de Sintra, and so on. The owner was very helpful, showed us where to get the main attractions. Classification: 5/5". H. Saag, Estonia, July 2011.

" Petite maison coquette, trés propre et bien située: trés proche du centre, dans une rue calme, à proximité des lieux à visiter, et à environ 20m en voiture des plages et de Lisbonne. Trés belle région! De la documentation et des reinsegements sur les visites est laissée par la propriétaire, trés attencionnée et il est bien pratique de trouver draps et serviettes sur place. Classification: 5 sur 5". C. Maurin, Paris, Août 2011.
