Tucked away on a verdant hillside in Sintra Portugal, the 1980’s mansion oozes a cool mid-century-modern and 1970s vibe with its carefully curated one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and nostalgic charm. Designed by the original owner to entertain, the transition to boutique hotel was an easy one, with a large lobby and bar, several spacious terraces, and even a club in the basement, ‘Nando’s Place’. The secluded oasis has 8 spacious rooms & suites – all with private balconies or terraces, surrounded by lush gardens, dreamy pool, and countless private spots in the sun.
