    Marco and his staff are incredible at Storytellers Villas. They really went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable, I have never experienced such great hospitality. We stayed in the Pena Villa and it was beautifully decorated with everything needed for a comfortable stay, the beds were so comfy and we were left fresh fruit every day.

  • 6.0.Good

    Our host Marco and his staff were great and offered excellent tips on where to visit in the local area and also in other areas we planned to visit in Portugal. Having free parking in the adjacent square was an added benefit, however we had a few issues with our room #2. Very little natural light making the room feel dark. Slight musty smell after the room had been closed up. Room felt “cramped” with too much in the room. Would be very cramped with 4 adults and luggage. TV in lounge area somehow also turned on the TV in the bedroom and vice versus.

    Pleasant Stay at Storytellers Villas

    Our 3 day stay was very pleasant experience. The host Marco was very helpful and friendly, Comfortable bed ,nicely decorated room, Good location in Sintra. For a extra fee the host will cook a nice breakfast on a deck overlooking the neighborhood,They also have a shuttle that will take you anywhere you want to go around town, we used it and was cheaper then a taxi ride, Nuno the shuttle driver went out of his way to take us to Pena Palace because most roads were closed due to fire risk. Overall it was good experience and I would do it again

    Marco and his wife were extremely helpful and nice! I'm very impressed with their hospitality. They made our stay at Sintra unforgettable. The place was clean, comfortable and well kept! Spacious rooms for a family of 4. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely! I can't speak highly enough about this place! I would strongly recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to return!

    Unforgettable Stay at Storytellers

    Marco,Christina & Nuno are amazing people. Their hospitality & warmth was ‘over the top’. They provided shuttle service whenever we needed it. They are very familiar with Portugal so made excellent recommendations as to areas to visit & places to eat & shop. Storytellers takes you back in time with its cozy quaint atmosphere. If you enjoy ‘old world charm’ this is the place for you. Conveniently located nearby shops & retaurants. I am making plans with my family to return with them and meet with more family there at Storytellers. It exceeded my expectations! Two thumbs up!
