The sintra is located about 20mins by train from the Lisbon, ShePineTree House is located not near by within 1 min away from the nearest bus stop. The timetable of bus is fixed and very punctual, the bus will bring u around all over the sintra through all the tourist attraction. Overall i love ShePineTree. In fact they give us...

We stayed at the She Pine Tree House for only one night, and yet it was perhaps the best stop of our entire trip. We were greeted very kindly by the owner of the house Mr. Tomaz, who had layed out red wine for us to have on our evening arrival. The house immediately intrigued us. The eclectic mix of...

We stayed only 2 nights, but collected more experiences that during the rest of our two weeks holiday. Tomaz and Bebe are amazing hosts, they truly made us feel like home and were always happy to share exciting stories with us and other guests. The house is so charming, full of books, artworks, so inspirational and distinctive. It's a house...

On the internet website, it shows a wonderful swimming pool. When arriving at the house, we were so surprised to see that the swimming pool was not working and it seemed to be unused since a long time. The atmosphere seemed nice at the beginning but there is no intimacy. You can hear every noise from the room, outside, dogs...

We loved the She Pine Tree House! From the staff (Tomaz and Bebe), to the quirky and cool house, to the comfy rooms, gorgeous views, and delicious breakfast, tea and espresso ... All was wonderful. The hotel is a bit out of the way, but we didn't mind. It's in a charming small town with easy access to Sintra and...

We were recomended to stay here from someone who stayed before, it is a beautiful old house overlooking the hills and the host Tomaz is an extremely welcoming and interesting person. I did feel the whole experience was a bit ramshackle. The room we had was lovely, with great views but the fan struggled to have an effect against the...

The She Pine Tree is a one off; it is a museum but without any of the constraints of such a place. We were made to feel very welcome despite arriving quite late on a Sunday evening - a meal was waiting for us and we ate there each evening for four nights. We ate very well and each evening...

The place is in a small village on the countryside where apparently the neighbours keep dogs locked in their gardens, therefore 24hrs around the clock dogs are barking making it very difficult to sleep, don't event consider opening the windows to get some fresh air! Also, the breakfast hygiene is beyond terrible. Cheeses, hams, yoghurts etc are just standing in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome To The House Of The She Pine Tree! The House of the She Pine Tree was built at the end of the XIX Century for a local farmer´s family, and expanded in the 30´s, when it was redesigned to its “Sintra Chalet” looks. It sits on the highground edge of the time forgotten villages of Sabugo and Vale de Lobo, in the county of the historic town of sintra (a Unesco World Heritage Site). The village rolls down the last west facing slope where the hills of Carregueira and Olela merge, with breathtaking views of the mountain of Sintra and its valley, with fabulous unlimited 270º degrees sunsets panoramas! The sea from Guincho to Ericeira lies just behind the horizon. The house was bought in the early sixties by the journalist, war reporter, radio and tv producer and speaker, painter, artist, award-wining novelist, theater and children´s stories writer, publicist, poet, antiquarian, art collector Olavo d´Eça Leal (Vd. Bio). The house will be the property of a foundation and hosts the temporary and permanent contributions of drawings, paintings, furnishings and personal objects of Olavo, constituting a Museum House. In order to sustain its maintenance and support the conservation of the house and its collection, the house is operating as an inn/bed & breakfast, a non-profit charity. The rooms are decorated with the art collection, furnishings, and personal objects of Olavo, on loan or donated by his widow, Emilia, and his son, Tomaz. The collection is constituted mainly by drawings from 1926 to 1976, the year he passed away in Oxford, covering 50 years of his work. ... more   less

“Room 6 was large and comfortable.”

“If you must stay here best room is number 6. The terrace room at the top requires climbing two flights of stairs. Also the terrace room is not large except for the siting room. Watch your head. So demand room 6!!”

“I had a sneaky peek in some of the other rooms and they are amazing, so I would recommend you try to avoid the Left or Right rooms if you are a light sleeper. Some of the rooms are in the lower ground floor so have no windows but the people we met there said they were really nice.”
