LOCATION
3km from the romantic town of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, 7km from the Atlantic Coast beaches and 30km (45 mins by car) from the capital city of Lisbon.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
This stunning house dates back to the 16th Century and was once a rest place of monks and pilgrims as they travelled through the Sintra hills visiting the many chapels they found on their way. When amidst the silence and serenity which surrounds the Quinta, it is clear why the monks chose such a location as their sanctuary.

The house nestles on a hillside which stretches from the historic town of Sintra to the East, beloved of kings and poets, with its fairytale palaces,impressive manor houses, boutiques, cafés and restaurants all the way to the Atlantic Ocean to the West with its many beautiful beaches and watersport facilities. This privileged location allows visitors to be close to all amenities and places of historical and cultural interest but at the same time provides the perfect retreat where guests can enjoy peace and serenity in a beautiful setting.

The views from the guest rooms are spectacular. Nothing seems to intrude on the lush green lanscape except for the sparkling and inviting blue of the swimming pool below and the ornate dome of the exotic Monserrate Palace towering over the treetops in the distance. The night sky, illuminated only by lights from the Palace and the twinkling of the stars, is truly magical.

The extensive grounds are not to be missed. Guests are invited to take a stroll over the lawns to a shaded seat or corner or along the winding paths, past many interesting and exotic plants and trees down to the tennis court below. Or they can simply relax by the pool and marvel at the scene, the beauty and the silence.

On entering the house, it is clear that this is not an ordinary hotel or guest house but rather a home, with a heart and a soul and a story to tell. Family photographs and personal items are on display throughout, creating an authentic, warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The Quinta has welcomed several royal visitors and film stars over the years as well as hosted debutant balls, film sets and informal, memorable parties. Burt Lancaster wrote of his time here:

“I am sitting here in another time – another century – just discovering a peace and calm that is like magic – it’s a new experience for me, and perhaps I will be permitted to come back to see if it is really there and not an illusion.”

COMMENTS
Climate:
Sintra is famous for it's moderate microclimate, its steep hillsides and lush forests and was once the Summer residence of the Kings of Portugal. It was once described in the 18th century by the poet, Lord Byron, as a 'Glorious Eden' due to its unique climate and lush vegetation. Sir Francis Cook made the most of this special climate when he recreated the gardens of the famous Monserrate Palace in the 19th century, using exotic and rare tress and plants from several parts of the world. Always being a few degrees cooler than Lisbon, many people travel to Sintra in the Summer months to escape the heat of the city.

Being just outside Sintra and close to the sea, the house provides guests with the best of all worlds; a moderate climate and fresh, healthy air.

Monserrate Palace, which can be seen from the Manor House, was built in the mid 19th Century for Sir Francis Cook and is an example of Romantic Architecture. The house is now a museum and the exotic gardens, with species of plants and trees from all over the world, are well worth visiting

I love, love, LOVE this gorgeous villa! The views are breath-taking from the backyard, complete with a pool for full relaxation and recharge from the busy city life. You will want to rent a car or see if there are taxis that can take you there because it is located in an unpaved road in the mountains. The breakfast was splendid each day and our rooms were very comfortable. I hope to return in the future!

Na Quinta de São Thiago os hóspedes são tratados não apenas como clientes, mas sobretudo como amigos e família.
O nosso objectivo é proporcionar-lhe uma estadia inesquecível!
Sentimos um enorme orgulho pelas centenas de comentários deixados pelos hóspedes no Livro de Honra, ao longo destes 30 anos de actividade.
É aconselhável trazer um carro, pois a quinta fica cerca de 6 quilómetros distante do centro histórico. Por essa mesma razão, somos o local ideal para desfrutar da tranquilidade que procura!
