The Hotel Tivoli Palácio de Seteais is a most attractive aristocratic Palace which has been converted without risk to its original charm and the elegance of its interior. It is easy for a guest during their stay to stroll about its garden and terraces and imagine they have returned to re-live a style of life so enjoyed in the 18th century! Due to its obvious charm it is often chosen as a location for numerous wedding parties and social events.
The Hotel has only 30 guest bedrooms and one suite.
The attractive decor of the 'Panoramic Restaurant' and its high quality cuisine is another attractive feature. It overlooks the garden which also contains a pool and has a tennis court.
The location of the Hotel is above the village of Sintra and the walk down into the village is one of the most charming in Portugal and as the narrow road is lined with small Palaces and impressive homes. You may wish to return with the charm of a horse drawn coach as the climb back up may be quite demanding for some!
Lord Byron was greatly impressed with the romantic charm of the area when he lived for some time in 1809 in the area. UNESCO chose Sintra as a 'World Heritage' site due to its castles, monuments, palaces, and the aristocratic estates, all with varied impressive architectural residences.
