Quinta Beira-Mar is a spacious B&B in a stunning location right by the beach on the beautiful Sintra coast-line. The area is a surfing hot-spot with lovely sandy beaches and perfect for walkers, cyclists and exploring the local villages and Sintra Mountains. We are only 15 mins from Sintra with its magical castles and palaces, and 45 mins from Lisbon. The house offers spacious rooms with balconies and views of the sea and mountains. There are extensive gardens, palm trees, a swimming pool, BBQ area and Wi fi internet. For breakfast you can enjoy fresh eggs from the chickens! Local activities include surfing, horse-riding, golf, tennis, mountain biking and wine tasting.

I recently visited Quinta Beira-Mar with two friends and we had the most wonderful stay. The house is gorgeous and situated in the most stunning location. A two minute walk takes you down to the beach and a 20 minute walk across the beach takes you to the local town of Praia das Macas. There is loads to do in the local area and lots of fantastic restaurants, bars and interesting places to visit. The house is absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful garden and swimming pool. Our hostess, Susanna, was completely charming and couldn't have been any more helpful and warmly hospitable. The animals are great and added a lovely, homey dimension to our stay. I would highly recommend visiting this beautiful home in a splendid location!

The House is lovely, very well looked after and in a fantastic location; 1 minute walk to one beach, 5-10 mins to two other beaches with amazing restaurants (I highly recommend the yummy seafood at "Oceano" in Praia das Maçãs) Our room was large, very clean and beautifully decorated, fantastic view of the gardens and sea from our big balcony. The Owners are very friendly and welcoming, and full of great suggestions for day trips and things to do. There is a fantastic outdoor seating & BBQ area, new swimming pool and even two chickens - so fresh eggs every morning! Wifi and English Sky TV channels came in handy on the one rainy night we had. They have a couple of adorable dogs which were extremely well behaved and wonderful company. Would recommend walking to Praia das Maçãs and getting the tram into Sintra for the day, its only 2Euros each way and gives you amazing views of the villages and mountains. Also the Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra is extraordinary, make sure you walk all around the gardens and underground tunnels and read about the history and symbology behind it all! We had a truly perfect and memorable holiday at Quinta Beira Mar, would recommend to couples, families and singles alike!

I stayed at this wonderful bespoke B&B with my wife and two young children. Located superbly for the surrounding beaches being just 2 minutes from the trendy surf beach of Praia Pequena and about 10-15 minutes from the two larger beaches at Praia das Macas and Praia Grande (both also have swimming pools). Also great for visting nearby Sintra and only 45 minutes into central Lisbon. The owners were very friendly and allowed us to BBQ at the house in the evenings. We also made use of the new swimming pool, perfect for a few lengths before a breakfast including fresh eggs from the on site chickens. Will be returning in 2010....
