This quinta is in the Sintra Natural Park, with views to die for and only birdsong to break the silence. Bedrooms are large, peaceful, cleverly designed. Spread over the ground and first floors and the garden, they come with fabulous extras: terraces, verandas, sunsets and in Lavender, even distant ocean views. Inside find fresh-cut flowers, locally grown fruits, organic snacks, pool towels, a bottle of wine and teas.
Breakfast – generous and locally sourced – is a moreish and generous affair, with gluten-free and vegan options available too. Feast on yogurts, cheeses, hummus, fruits, salads, cereals, fresh breads and eggs, all washed down with fresh juice, tea, smoothies and hot coffee.
Fill your days with walks to Almoçageme, hikes or cycle rides to breathtaking cliffs; bask by the pool, quench your thirst from the honesty bar. There’s a fully equipped kitchen if you fancy cooking, but restaurants are a short stroll away too.
