Gentle summers, exotic gardens, verdant landscapes and magnificent architecture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sintra is a charming once-in-a-lifetime destination. Just a 30-minute drive from Lisbon, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is rich with culture and history. Once an escape for Portuguese nobles and visionaries, today itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved for palace visits, antique shopping and Mediterranean wining and dining.
Much more than just a five-star boutique hotel, Tivoli Palรกcio de Seteais is a gem of old world romance and luxury. Each room of this XVIII century palace has been restored with unique character from frescoes to tapestries and antiques. Splendid relaxation awaits in beautiful spaces, outdoors by the pool or in lush gardens and at the new Anantara Spa.
The residential palace was built in 1787 by the former Dutch Consul in Portugal. Several noble Portuguese families lived here before it became a hotel in 1955. Our guests over the years have included Agatha Christie, Alain Prost, Brad Pitt, Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, John Malkovich, Johnny Depp, Kylie Minogue, Maria Callas, Marguerite Yourcenar and Mick Jagger. According to legend, the area Seteais got its name in 1174 when one of the first Christian knights discovered a beautiful Moorish girl trying to escape the Sintra Mountains. She was bewitched and could only say “ai”, and died when she said it seven times (“Sete” in Portuguese “ais”). In our gardens, there is still a spot where if you shout “ai” you’ll hear the echo seven times.
The palace has 30 spacious and well-lit rooms, individually decorated and boasting sublime views. Modern comforts include LCD TVs, WiFi, air conditioning, coffee makers and iHomes. Delight in lovely touches such as welcome platters of local sweets and port wine, and tea and cookies for evening turndown service.
Butler service is available to assist guestsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; every need from rooms to the pool and tennis courts. Tivoli PalĂĄcio de Seteais employs two butlers to make stays as seamless and personalised as possible. They are available for desires from booking tours and activities to romantic garden picnics and evening turndown service.
Seteais Bar is the perfect place to refresh after sightseeing with impressive panoramic views of Sintra and excellent sips.
