Penha Longa

Sintra

Situated just seven miles from the beautiful Estoril coast the Penha Longa Resort is a magnificent 300 acre estate set within a wooded valley with lush gardens, offering extensive facilities for all the family.

Our clients are attracted to Penha Longa thanks to its gorgeous location in the shady forested hills above the glittering Estoril coast. The perfect hotel for those who don't need to be right on the beach, and for those who want to combine fantastic sports facilites, a lovely tranquil atmosphere and close proximity to great beaches and the fascinating city of Lisbon. Penha Longa offers something totally different. With the support of our dedicated team on hand to whisk you to the hotel in just 30 minutes from your touch-down in Lisbon, families appreciate the convenient location, too.

New for 2015, Penha Longa is now offering guests access to an exclusive beach club located a short 15 minute shuttle from the hotel. Here you'll find a bar and restaurant, which serves refreshing drinks and light snacks and sandwiches throughout the day.

Style and Tone

Penha Longa has great credentials; a luxurious, modern hotel sensitively incorporated into an historical landscape of ancient buildings and surrounded by a vast and private sporting estate. Whilst its origins date back to the 14th century, the facilities are first-class and right up-to-date, and the sense of space and exclusivity creates a relaxed and low key atmosphere that our clients often comment on.

With just a 15 minute drive down to the coast, the surf hot-spot of Guincho Beach provides the perfect backdrop for our renowned PB Surf Academy, welcoming kids and adults who want to enjoy this inspiring sport.

Accommodation

We recommend the hotel for its selection of modern rooms and suites which are perfect for families, some allowing for additional beds which make for a very economical option. Executive Suites are very popular, offering separate living rooms, some with large balconies overlooking the beautiful grounds and golf course.

From Our Clients

Our clients are at the centre of everything we do, we know we are only as good as our last holiday and it is this mantra that drives us to seek out feedback to help shape our unique services and the properties we choose to work with. See what they have to say about the Penha Longa Resort below.

"Really the best holiday the kids have ever had - we were totally satisfied with the high level of care (not easy for that age group). I was really impressed by the way you took the individual abilities of our kids into account when they were assessing whether they would enjoy planned events."

"Really impressed by the level of care the for our kids at TheZone - enormous thanks to Chloe and Craig. The hotel was lush, location was fantastic but knowing that the kids were having such a good time was the best of all. High point: watching the kids learning to surf! Low point: er, no it was all just lovely. Didn't want to come home! It was a real luxury to have the PB team there to answer all our questions."

"We loved every minute of our stay at Penha Longa and were very sad to leave. The staff were, without exception, excellent, endlessly polite, always remembering our names, friendly and helpful….Powder Byrne provided superb entertainment for our teenage children with the Surf Academy. It could not have been a better holiday! We hope to be back very soon!"

Summer

"We booked our trip to Penha Longa 3 days before we left through Powder Byrne who were both efficient and friendly. Emily was most helpful at ensuring our last minute booking went smoothly. From the moment we arrived at Penha Longa Hotel, it excelled in both quality and service. We were met with ice-cold fresh lemonade, cold flannels and taken straight to our room by our Powder Byrne rep, the incomparable Nigel Booth...I would definitely go back and rather wish I was there now!"
