Area & Experiences

Half an hour outside Lisbon, the road heads up into the hills and plunges into the ‘glorious Garden of Eden’ celebrated by Lord Byron: the Sintra-Cascais national park. Rocky hillsides decked in abundant greenery stretch as far as the eye can see. Occasionally a man-made landmark peeps out from amid this natural splendour: a whimsically Romantic palace, a Moorish fortress, a historic villa. Nestled in the midst of these poetic surroundings, Sao Pedro de Sintra is a charming village with steep, colourful little streets. A few minutes’ walk from the quaint centre and historic churches, Villa Pena surveys nature’s spectacular work.

Our nearby experiences

The Grand Tour

Explore the region around Sintra with a guide who is passionate about history, from epic tales to intimate, local stories. Outside of the standard opening hours, wander through castles, palaces, convents and gardens without the usual crowds of visitors. Eat like an aristocrat in a private dining room in the Sintra Palace, and round off the day with a display by the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art, proudly perpetuating the nation’s fine tradition of equestrianism.

Follow in the footsteps of a local adventurer

João is passionate about the great outdoors, a land-bound navigator constantly hunting out new beauty spots and hidden secrets in his native region. Join him for an expedition between Sintra and Cascais, cutting through ancient forests to reach the pristine beaches that host Portugal’s finest surf spots. There’s also the option of a night-time adventure to explore Sintra and Cascais in the dark, camp fire and glass of port included.

A gastronomic excursion

Early in the morning, dip into the explosion of colours that is Cascais market, with a top local chef as your guide. Our expert will help you navigate through these beautifully-tiled alleys, introducing you to his most trusted suppliers of fresh fish, vegetables and other local produce. He’ll then accompany you back to your kitchen, for a masterclass in the art of Portuguese cuisine starring some of the finest recipes from his thirty years as a professional chef.
