Quinta Sao Bento

Quinta Sao Bento is a magnificent and much-loved family home in Sintra, Portugal.  A unique venue for a holiday with family or friends, the Quinta is for those who appreciate the elegance, privacy and history of a former 16th century manor house and monastic retreat.

Just a 45 minute drive from Lisbon, the Quinta is nestled in a corner of paradise.  Amphitheatrical gardens and terraces boast an array of fruit trees, flowers and lawns with far-reaching views of the valley of Colares below and the Atlantic Sea beyond.  A swimming pool, terraces and a restored Renaissance chapel complete the scene.

Quinta Sao Bento can accommodate up to 10 people in five spacious bedrooms.  For larger parties, a neighbouring villa and pool can sometimes be made available, offering a further five double bedrooms (see www.matalva.com).

Guests staying at the Quinta Sao Bento benefit from an inclusive housekeeping service.  Food shopping, a cook service or any other special requests can also be arranged prior to arrival to ensure a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
