Quinta da Matalva 

Quinta da Matalva is a spacious and private villa with pool, set in the beautiful, historic, UNESCO protected mountain range of Sintra, with pine forest backdrops and views of the sea.

Available for rental throughout the year, Quinta da Matalva is suitable for couples, families or groups of friends looking for a peaceful and stylish setting for a villa holiday within easy reach of the hill town of Sintra, sandy beaches, golf courses and amenities.

Sleeping up to 10 guests, Quinta da Matalva is made up of Matalva house for 6 guests which is connected by a covered colonnade to Matalva cottage for 4 guests.  The set up works well for a small group renting the main house only or a group of 10 who can rent the cottage too.  

Matalva house has a wide terrace which is ideal for barbecues, drinks and outside dining. Through a gate from the terrace are steps down to a private swimming pool with another terrace and sun loungers. From the main house, walk through a colonnade to Matalva Cottage which has a separate kitchen, sitting room and terrace with a dining area, ideal for anyone in the group requiring privacy such as a family with young children or grandparents.

From the entire property there are superb views of the historic botanic gardens of Monserrate and terraces of oranges, lemons and fig trees.
