View over Pena Palace Sintra 2000x922 1

Surrounding Areas

We recommend the following attractions all within 30 mins of the Quinta.


Sintra is a UNESCO World Heritage Town with so many attractions that you could spend a week looking around everything. It is a great place to visit, but has a micro climate that sometimes means that it can be misty until the sun burns through in the late morning.


Lisbon is a 20 minute drive away but we recommend that you travel by train from the village station during week days when traffic is busy and there is limited parking available. Tickets are less than €2.

Day Trips

Portugal is a small country and have many beautiful sites to visit only a few hours away, sometimes even less. Thanks to that many day trips can be done, allowing the visitors to discover a lot in one day.

Sports and Activities

Golf is BIG in Portugal and there are many great golf courses within a 20 minute drive of Quinta do Scoto. Belas Clube de Campo is just 5 km away, known for its excellent variety of holes. As well as many other fun activities.
