The lighthouse of Cabo da Roca with its dramatic cliffs marks the most westerly point of Europe.

Dining room in Sao Thiago Guest house in SintraA private home atmosphere, our guests are considered and treated as friends, not just clients. Thus we give them individual attention such as counselling them on their daily sightseeing tours and programs. Invariably guests write warmly about our hospitality. Quoting one of our many famous guests, the actor Burt Lancaster:


"I am sitting here in another time - another century just discovering a peace and calm that is like magic - it's a new experience for me, and perhaps 1 will be permitted to come back to see if it is really there and not an illusion."


"This crew from California enjoyed it all so much
this family entertained us with such a gracious touch
we lingered at the table longing so to stay
knowing well how soon, will have to go away,
we'll cherish all these moments
of warmth and beauty here, vistas, flowers, treasures - make memories
we'll hold dear."´
