The Sintra region is famed for its architectural heritage: castles from ruggedly Moorish to flamboyantly Romantic dominate the hilltops. With Atlantic waves breaking on golden sands a few miles west, the area is a tourist magnet. So full marks to architect and designer Elisabeth for creating her own harmonious corner, on the unprepossessing edge of a farming village at the back end of Sintra.Her pale blue ‘scented farmhouse’, built in 2010, sits in peaceful isolation in a young walled garden. Two small but elegant guest rooms are on the quinta’s ground floor, the other is in the cottage, with a sofabed for children, and all showcase Elisabeth’s flair for design. Walls are washed in pale shades, there’s stylish furniture, striking art and brilliant little touches. Chic bathrooms come with perfect robes and slippers: Elisabeth loves to pamper. She provides sumptuous breakfasts too, home or locally produced, and cooks stunning evening meals if you let her; eat in the dining room or on the patio. The kitchen is where the magic happens, but it’s not out of bounds – pop in and you’ll be plied with cake, herbal infusions from the garden, and just-squeezed juices.

We were completely and utterly spoiled and we did not want to leave. A gorgeous property, beautifully furnished inside and out, very exacting, high standards, everything is fragrant - from the soft linens to the lavender in the garden. Breakfast spreads are superb, and all your evening meals delicious, locally sourced and cooked to perfection (you needn't go anywhere else). Our baby son even had his own towels and a cot made up with beautiful linen and teddy inside. Elisabeth is welcoming, interesting and generous. We have stayed in many Sawdays B&Bs, but this is the best. We will be back.
