Touring the lush forests of the Sierra de Sintra and a few kilometers away from this town declared Patrimony of the Humanity that attracts equally to noble and poets, we arrived to Eugaria Country House.

A house of farmers of the XVIII century belonging to one of the many aristocratic families established in the area and that Ana and Luis have returned to life.

They work the land as did originally occupants of the house and invite the traveler to know their way of life, working the land and collecting the fruits of their gardens and fruit trees that used to develop their delicious sauces and jams.

Integrated in the Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais, is ideal both for understanding the imposing castles and palaces of the area, like to relax on the nearby beaches and fishing villages.

We walked by their farm in the sheep that coexist with hens that give us fresh eggs for breakfast.

In the lower part of the farm a pond with some curious paintings of the that its origin and meaning are unknown.

From its terrace, ideal to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening, we contemplate the majestic valley that ends in the sea.

The house divided in two buildings of white color, accommodate five bright rooms. All different in size, shape and details, some with a fireplace, others with views another ideal for families.

A dining room next to the kitchen where Ana prepares her praised breakfasts that consist in local meats and cheeses, jams, juices and fruits of the season, which can be enjoyed during the summer on the terrace of a cobbled floor.

For dinner they have prepared another lounge decorated with an interesting selection of paintings and mirrors. In them use products of proximity and of their orchard to prepare Portuguese specialties.
