A real highlight of any trip to Portugal is Sintra, with its palace walls tumbling down rolling hills that are studded with colourful turrets. You will stay two nights in a traditionally furnished Portuguese cottage, painted white with azure blue or sun yellow frames and a cobble-stoned terrace. This is a really romantic place to relax, whilst you daydream with a view of the flowery meadows with windmills.

Arrival in Sintra

Arrive in the Portuguese countryside, where you will experience what it is like to be a real Portuguese farmer. You’ll sleep in a colourfully house decorated with flowers and can relax on the terrace this evening with a view over the beautiful landscape of Sintra. Everywhere you look there are yellow fields of corn and whitewashed houses looming in the distance.

Step into a fairy tale in Sintra

Today you are free to do as you please, but a visit to the palace of Sintra is highly recommended. It is a mix of different colours, architectural styles and towers. The halls inside have a fairytale atmosphere, thanks to the beautiful chandeliers, frescoes and the porcelain tile walls. After visiting the palace, take a scenic walk through the cornfields and sleepy villages or relax on one of the beaches only 15 minutes from your accommodation and take a refreshing dip in the sea.

Departure from Sintra

This morning you’ll enjoy your breakfast whilst taking in the views one last time, before continuing your Portuguese adventure. Either head to Lisbon to immerse yourself in good food, drinks and beautiful streets or opt for Nazaré for a wonderful stopover on the coast.
