Sintra
Just a 30 minute drive from Lisbon lies the beautiful and historic hill town of Sintra, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is a stunning landscape of lush forested hills rolling down to beautiful beaches.

Experience Sintra

English poet Lord Byron hailed it as "the garden of Eden". Offering spectacular views of the coastline, Sintra and the surrounding forested hills of the Estoril, provide a secluded and beautiful haven, a world away from the bustle of historic Lisbon, which is just a few miles away. It has come as no surprise to us that this part of Portugal has swiftly become a hot favourite for our clients who are looking for something a little different from their summer holiday. Thanks to the superior quality of Penha Longa Hotel, the fantastic secluded setting, the facilities available on the estate and the close proximity to spectacular beaches, the resort appeals to families of all ages.

Our Hotels

We carefully select our hotels visiting each property and researching it in great detail before ever sending a client. Our hotels are hand-picked for their unparalleled accommodation, cuisine and facilities as well as first-class service.

Penha Longa Resort

Penha Longa Resort

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.

Highlights Of Sintra

Portuguese gastronomy at its best

With a variety of wonderful restaurants in the area, Sintra is a dream destination for foodies, and the close proximity to nearby Lisbon provides an almost endless gastronomic selection, known as one of the cities most at the forefront of culinary excellence. Authentic Portuguese cuisine is such a treat with its lovely aromatic spices and focus on the finest, freshest ingredients.

Golfers' Paradise

Golf lovers will be in their element in Sintra, where they'll enjoy the two beautiful 18-hole courses at Penha Longa Resort, designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones Jr,  which weave their way around the pine clad hills.

Explore Cascais

A charming old-fashioned seaside town with a gorgeous beach and lovely restaurants, Cascais is a must during any visit to Sintra. This gem started out as a small fishing village and, despite its popularity for its idyllic scenery and water-sport options, it has maintained its authentic appeal.

Discover Lisbon

Only 40 minutes away by Powder Byrne Shuttle, Lisbon is ideal for a day trip. Discover the city with a tram tour around the old Alfama district, try the exceptional restaurants, browse the superb shops and visit the many museums and galleries. At night, experience an evening of traditional fado music. The kids will love Kidzania, the Oceanarium and Parque de Nacoes.

Breathtaking Beaches

With the benefit of being tucked away in a lush haven, Penha Longa has stunning beaches nearby to enjoy when you choose. The Estoril Coast is only seven miles away, offering perfect beaches for relaxing family days, and for more of a thrill there's Guincho beach a 15 minute drive away, which is a popular surf hotspot.

Steeped in history

As long-time hideaway of the Royal Family and with 10 historic national monuments, including ornate palaces and ancient ruins, Sintra is a history-lover's paradise.
