At our “Barefoot House”, you can kick off your shoes and enjoy the many sites and wonders of Portugal

Set in the foothills of Sintra, our Quinta is an ideal starting point to discover this UNESCO World Heritage cultural landscape of palaces, castles and woodland gardens. You can also explore further afield to Lisbon, Cascais and the breathtaking Atlantic coastline, all within easy reach for a day’s outing.

Our typical country house is set in lush gardens boasting citrus trees, aromatic herbs, vibrant hydrangeas and blushing bougainvillea. The outdoor swimming pool includes a spacious sun terrace and dining area, as well as a open air barbecue. You can also relax with a book, play games or enjoy the wide open fireplace in our large common living room.

Every morning, we serve a freshly prepared breakfast with local breads and cheeses, freshly-squeezed juice with Portuguese oranges (from our garden when available!) and homemade jams. In the evenings, we will be happy to introduce you to local wines and other regional products.


Would you like to enjoy the whole Quinta do Pé Descalço exclusively with just your family and/or friends? No problem at all! You can choose to rent all our facilities and enjoy the entire house and annex, inclusive of pool and garden, entirely to yourselves.
(max. 13 adults or 12 adults and 4 children).
