The 30 spacious guest rooms make the most of their generous proportions with high ceilings and large windows adding to the grandeur of the furnishings. The decor is classical in style with rich fabrics, antique and reproduction furniture, and gilded frames on the artwork. Due to the historic nature of the property, the size and layout can vary from room to room but original details have been retained wherever possible and some rooms boast original features such as traditional frescoes. Windows look out over the pool and gardens or the mountainside and Pena Palace, while the bathrooms maintain the classical style of decor with some featuring large, claw-footed bathtubs. All rooms offer air-conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The Tivoli Palácio de Seteais occupies a commanding position on the lush, green mountainside of Sintra and offers views of the valley below and up to the romantic Pena Palace. The extravagant Palacio Quinta da Regaleira with its magical gardens is easily accessed on foot in around five minutes, while the heart of Sintra is just a five-minute taxi ride away.
Food and drink
Breakfast is served each morning in a grand frescoed dining room and is an extravagant buffet affair.

The fine dining restaurant serves a menu of traditional Portuguese cuisine which you can enjoy either à la carte or as part of a creative tasting menu.
Facilities and activities
Nestled within beautiful formal gardens, the Tivoli Palácio de Seteais feels like an elegant countryside retreat.
