An oasis of calm close to Sintra and within easy reach of Lisbon
Quinta da Luz more than exceeded our expectations. Everything about it was great from the beautiful accommodation and the clean pool to the lovely garden from which we were provided with fresh vegetables. The only down side was having to leave!
Quinta da Luz is a perfect base to start a holliday around Lisbon.
We were surprised when we saw the accommodation: it was more beautiful as we expected. We had a warm welcome, Susan and Paula are very sympathetic lady´s. They made us feel home immediately. The house is very comfortable and conveniant for the children. In the morning they collected oranges and grapefruits in the beautiful garden and they loved it. But the three dogs have made their holliday really nice.
Lovely guest house on beautiful grounds
The guest house is well-maintained and very spacious, with a large kitchen, a separate dining room, and a large living room with a fireplace (which we used frequently during an unseasonably cold April). The bedrooms are also large, with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are big, with one an ensuite to the largest bedroom. We were a family of four (two parents, an 11-year-old, and a grandma) and found the accommodations to fit our needs perfectly. The house would also work well for a couple with several children, or two couples. We did not get a chance to use the pool (too cold when we were there), but it's big, and our daughter was rather disappointed not to give it a try. Susan is an accommodating host, and gifted us with a bottle of wine and a jar of homemade marmalade during our visit. Her dogs are lovely, and very well behaved, and were very good with our (admittedly dog-mad) girl. The guest house is located just minutes from Sintra and Cascais, and only a short distance from Lisbon. When driving to Sintra (especially if you're going to Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle), you will want to arrive by 9:30 a.m. in order to find parking near palaces Parking is at a premium anywhere else in town, for that matter, as it's a medieval town with narrow streets, and parking spots go quickly. Cascais is lovely, and we recommend giving the museums a try (we especially liked the the small modern art museum -- it's excellent) and the large woodland park near the old fort (there were peacocks and lots of flowers). You can also walk for several kilometres along the sea wall towards Estoril, which we found quite lovely. The drive up to Cabo da Rocha is gorgeous, as is the cape itself (most western point in continental Europe).
Tolles Haus und Grundstück mit großem Pool.
Die Woche bei Sue und ihrer Mutter Paua war sehr schön und entspannend. Wir haben uns super wohlgefühlt. Beide sind sehr gastfreundlich, haben uns mit Obst und Gemüse aus dem eigenen Anbau versorgt und hatten immer ein offenes Ohr für unsere Fragen. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, es gab Poolhandtücher und die täglich vorbeischauende Putzfrau waren der absolute Luxus.
A truly lovely experience!
We arrived at Quinta da Luz and "impressed" does not do justice to this little piece of heaven. The house has the most restful ambience with light filtering in the various windows at different times of the day, complimenting its character. Our grown up daughters commented that it was the loveliest place we had ever stayed in. The house is absolutely spotless with eveything you need to make your stay comfortable. The fresh towels and bed linen were most appreciated. The outside is aflow with beautiful flowers and the pool area is private and so relaxing. The little patio off the kitchen was a sun trap and lovely for lunch and dinner. Thank you Sue and Paula. We loved our stay and the beautiful plums and pears from the garden that were delivered regularly.
Would be delighted to return
We like clean toilets and a handy location. This lovely villa delivered effortlessly on both. The villa is just a 7 euro taxi to Cacem where we got a direct train to Lisbon (or yo can park and ride). It is also a short drive to fabulous Sintra (get a tuk tuk up the hill) and very well placed for the local beaches and resorts.
There is a large Westfield-style shopping mall about two miles away and top notch Lidl a little further but the Mini Preco in Rio de Mouro had an excellent bakery, butcher and fish counter, all reasonably priced and there was absolutely no need to go elsewhere. (Chefs -bring your own fish knives… you’ll want to buy and cook everything you see.)
Comfortable, very private, definitely quirky, and a tiny little bit rustic at the edges, we would all happily return in a flash. As advertised the friendly dogs are part of the package. Sue and Paula (star attraction) were generous, courteous and full of fun. Go for it!
