“The cottage was just as we imagined and just as described on the web site. Very clean and comfortable and in an ideal position for the beach, restaurants and local shop. The garden was perfect for lazy breakfasts, lunches and barbeques. It was great to have lots of tips from Ralph of where to eat, what to visit in Sintra and how to get to places. All of his advice worked out really well. When visiting palaces etc in Sintra it pays to be early if you want to park .Lisbon was amazing and really easy to get to on the train – we went twice in order to fit in everything we wanted to do – remember to buy a special travel ticket to get the most out of the trams and metro for longer journeys e.g. to Belém.
Many thanks Ralph for taking the time to explain the area to us and for recommending the restaurants – don’t think I will have too much fish for a while!”
