Nobody was there when we arrived but, when he showed up 30 min later, the owner was very friendly and spoke good Italian. He gave us the apartment and gate keys and just left us free to use everything. We did not sleep in the main house, but in a (larger) second property 5min away. The place was really big,...

It is an interesting property with lots of art and antiques etc. However, it just isn't working as a smooth guest facility. We were left standing on the street, locked out, for 30 minutes, despite arriving exactly at the time we said we would.....no one was at the property to let us in. Our room was in the basement and...

When we drove up to the house we had our doubts seeing it from outside, but as soon as we came inside we were just taken over by its charm. Inside the walls are covered with beautiful drawings and paintings of the father of the now owner Tomás. I also loved all the family pictures and memorabilia. There are a...

This place has dramatically changed based on prior reviews, sorry to say not for the good. Thomas (a nice guy and architect) took over the operation of the B&B from his kids last year when they decided to jump ship and take off to the big city of Lisbon. Thomas has other more important things to take care of and...

We loved staying here, and were very impressed by the welcoming staff and slightly eccentric interior. The place feels like home, and if you've got a car, is a great place to come back to after a long day of sight-seeing in Sintra or Lisbon. It was not too difficult to find, and although there are not really any nearby...

It was quite hard to find this place as it is located not in Sintra itself, although it was interesting to communicate with the locals trying to find the way. We stayed in Chapel suite which is located 300 m away from the main building. The room (I would say "loft") is full of antique things, paintings and books. It...

After having stayed at the house for one night in mid-August 2012 as part of a 7-person group (4 adults, 3 children) I am very surprised to see so many generally positive reviews. I was quite disappointed. We stayed in the Chapel part (actually the old stalls), in a two-floor "apartment" consisting of 3 separate rooms (2 twin + 1...

We've just come back from a one week stay at the She Pine Tree House and absolutely loved it. We wish we could have stayed longer. We had rented a car, and the house was easy to find. We had a warm welcome from Manuel, who showed us around the house and told us to feel at home,...and so we...

We had the most amazing experience at the Shee Pine Tree House two years ago while visiting Portugal. The welcome was one of the warmest we've ever received and we felt immediately at home. The food is amazing and I highly recommend to have dinner at the house: for an extremely reasonable price you will have plenty of delicious home-cooked...

If you get excited by antiques, art and interiors then ShePine is definitely worth a visit. We had a pleasant first evening there, the lovely Elvira cooked for us and I loved exploring the house and its contents. It's amazing and you can imagine yourself living in the time of the original owner. Every wall is covered in paintings, family...

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!!”

“Rooms on the west side have lovely views.”

“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.”
