We have moved to our brand new website:
Come and visit us - and see some of the most beautiful pictures of Sintra and the region 

Welcome to Casa José Ricardo

Modern, bright duplex flat of 180 square meters in a century-old villa provides the comfort and space that are essential to relax and feel like at home. Four-bedroom/three-bathroom self-catering holiday apartment located in a central but quiet street close to market, small restaurants and shops.

The perfect apartment for a family vacation, a holiday with friends or a romantic weekend getaway.

A big fully equipped kitchen, two adjacent living areas, terrace, and one double-bedroom are located on first floor of the villa. The top floor accommodates two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a single room.

Enjoy the private patio with wooden deck and charcoal barbecue. Thick stone walls let the house stay cool in summer and an efficient central heating keeps it cosy on colder days.
