    The location was excellent and the receptionist at check in was incredibly helpful on offering advice and making suggestions. The breakfast at a cute cafe around the corner was also plentiful for fueling a day of touring.

Located in the center of Sintra but away from the touristic venues, Chalet Saudade´s architecture dates back to XIX century and offers scenic views of the surroundings.
In 2001 we drove by a quaint, beautiful, old rose colored chalet in Sintra with a «FOR SALE» sign hanging on a white door. Having searched for months for a home in Sintra, the locale of Luís’ dream place to live, we thought – why not look at this charming “fixer upper”? It was twilight as we entered the stunning rooms with painted high ceilings and as the remaining sunlight flowed through the winter veranda overlooking the lush green gardens, it was love at first sight. After a 5 year period of a total renovation of the property, our home is renewed and refurbished, all the while keeping true to the style and essence of this particular type of architecture.
With the Sintra Train Station and Bus Station 100 meters away, Chalet Saudade offers a privileged location for guests to explore the mystic places of Sintra and coastal and rural towns. It is a ten-minute walk to the old historic center, with the Pena National Palace 5 km away and the Medieval Moorish Castle is a 20-minute walk. There are also nice restaurants, cafés, and bars on our street to frequent and enjoy a wonderful meal.
