About the Homestay
The room "Aventura" is now available in Ranholas, a small village 3 km away from the center of Sintra.
Our new house is quite charming, with many Moroccan decorative elements, natural light and country-side stillness that create a very special environment. The house has a nice terrace overlooking a huge garden and, with no immediate neighbors, it's just perfect for reading, sunbathing, or chilling out ... And now that spring has settled in, we've started to enjoy late lunches outdoors!
For those who are willing to travel in nature, the area is criss-crossed with trekking trails of different lengths and levels of difficulty (http://www.activesintra.com/index.php/en/activities/land-sports/hiking). There are also several trekking clubs and groups you can join.
Another interesting field to explore is the local gastronomy. Here you can find some of the most delicious seafood in the world (https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2013/aug/02/sintra-portugal-atlantic-coast-travel), and at half the price you would pay in other countries.
There is so much more to see and do around here! Do your online research and drop a line if you have any questions, I will be happy to share this beautiful corner of the world!
Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Genial...persona muy amable, estancia larga en su casa y muy comoda, 100% recomendable, una anfitriona que se preocupa por que pases bien por su casa, gracias Teresa y sin olvidar su hermana gracias por todo, buena gente Portuguesa y de mundo gracias
Es war großartig Teresa war sehr gastfreundlich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt Danke Teresa für die gute Gastreundschaft Obrigada beijhos ❤️
Teresa was an excellent host. Together we toured Cascais and Sintra together. We ate out at night times and she gave me excellent Portuguese dish recommendations. The room was big and the bed was comfortable. Her two cats are also very cute. If I am ever in Lisbon again I would stay with Teresa.
Teresa was such a lovely host. I had the most comfortable stay in a very friendly home. There was a freshly baked orange cake waiting on the table that Teresa had baked! She was very helpful in helping plan my day - she is very knowledgable about the region. Her home is super clean and in a safe neighbourhood minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean
Espectacular la anfitriona muy bien nos trato como de la familia mejor imposible lugar hermoso locomoción ok
Her home is a perfect home to stay, ,,,
We had an amazing week at here place. The home is close to some beautiful beach and to the center of Lisbonne. The train is 10min walking from home. Teresa have been so sweet to tell the place we should visite. She have been awesome with us to I will definitely recommend here to anyone who wants to go to lisbonne and go to the beach.
A very civilsed apartment in pleasent and peaceful suburban Lisbon, not too far from the beach, and convenient for the metro along the coast. There are lots of little restaurants and cafes nearby, and two supermarkets, so you won't starve! We didn't get to meet Teresa unfortunately but her family were very friendly (like the two resident cats - you need to like cats to stay here!) and helpful. We found a quiet back street up from the station to use that was not as steep as the main road - 10-15 mins walk. We can't wait to return to this wonderful city, when very much hope to meet Teresa. We can certainly recommend this apartment. (Just like our own house, one or two bits in the bathroom need fixing with a screwdriver! - sorry we couldn't help).
Teresa was an excellent host - kind, sweet, polite and reliable. She came to the airport and picked us up. She knows a lot about Lisbon and she has a lot of useful material like maps, books, brochures. During our stay at her place I had my birthday, so she prepared a surprise for me - a cake for good morning and a present, which I just adore! The appartment is big, the room is super - good bed and a lot of space, it has its own door to the balcony. I'm very grateful for the usage of the washing machine. And one of the most lovable thing was meeting with her two cats - we totally fell in love with them! After a few days they slept on our bed, how cute is that :)
The train station is in walkable distance, just a few minutes from the place and the train gets you to the center of Lisbon very quickly. If you need a spacious place to stay near Lisbon, then Teresa's Homestay is a place to book. Don't hesitate anymore ;)
