“Even better than we expected!”
Reviewed June 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We can't say enough about how instantly charmed we were when we first stepped onto this beautiful property! The spectacular view hits you first, then entering the cozy cottage felt like we were in a home away from home - only a lot more romantic and enchanting. We echo all of the other accolades that have been given of our hosts, Carol and Stuart - they truly have thought of everything to help their guests settle quickly into a relaxing and private getaway.
Enjoying a leisurely breakfast (from a well stocked pantry - with home made preserves - what a treat!) on the patio with the amazing view was one of our favourite things to do while we stayed our 5 days. We quickly learned that we were wise not to rent a car, since Sintra streets are quite difficult to navigate and parking is a night mare! Stuart gave us a lift to and from the Lisbon airport (for a reasonable fee) and the cottage is very well located to walk to most attractions, or to public transit. And attractions there are plenty! As I said, we stayed 5 days and still didn't cover it all. Such a great way to experience this area of Portugal.

We're so pleased you enjoyed your time with us, we certainly enjoyed getting to know you. You are right, you certainly don't require a car to be able to see all that Sintra has to offer, as we are very well located. However for anyone who does arrive by car, we always guarantee a space in the square outside the house. Once again we are happy that you enjoyed your holiday and hope we get to see you again one of these days! Thank you so much for taking the time to review.

“Fabulous Cottage with Amazing Hosts”
Reviewed January 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

It's a long way from Vancouver, BC to Portugal so when I was planning my one month artist retreat in Sintra I searched online until I found the perfect place. Cinco B&B met every hope and expectation I had. Carole Haynes greeted me warmly, there were delicious breakfast fixings in the kitchen and refrigerator, the rooms were spotless and inviting, and the bed and sitting room were very comfortable. I spent 9 days in the large apartment and the other 21 days in the cottage. Carole has used her creative magic to create places that are truly a home away from home for travellers. The little touches and attention to detail make it extra special. Both the apartment and the cottage had private gardens overlooking the valley and out to the sea. I was welcome to use the herbs in the garden and made some delicious omelettes. It was a short 5 minute walk to the heart of Sintra and the National Palace. Carole and her husband, Stuart, were super and more than willing to give directions for catching the train to Lisbon, etc., and offered up advice on places to see and restaurants to try. I was sad to leave but will definitely return and highly recommend Cinco to guests looking for a place where they can feel at home in a beautiful environment. For me, Cinco's charms match the charms of Sintra.

Liked best: The comfort of the place with stunning gardens, friendliness of the hosts, and the location close to everything in Sintra.
Liked least: It rained a lot when I was there but the beautiful rainbows over the valley made up for it.
