From the pick up point in Sintra, we will go to Maçãs beach by car. There, we'll visit the local market, where we can find the best local fish and the freshest vegetables in the area and we will select and buy all our ingredients. After this stop we will head to my property (Small farm) in the coastal village Magoito. On the way from the local market to my house I'll stop on some of my favourite viewpoints, where you can enjoy the stunning Sintra coastline landscapes. Once at the my house, we will grill the fish and prepare the salad together and then have lunch with a proper Portuguese green wine. For the dessert we'll have a typical Sintra pie (homemade). In this relaxed and familiar atmosphere, we will get to know each other even more and I will be happy to give you tips on making the best out of your trip to Portugal while enjoying the calm of the surrounding nature. After lunch, when we feel ready to go, we'll return to Portela de Sintra train station.
I was born in Sintra and have always lived here! I love all the natural beauty of this place, especially the coastal zone where I live. I like cooking, fishing, hiking, biking, farming and everything that makes me have contact with nature. I'm passionate about travelling and meeting people from around the world. I'm glad to be able to present the best of my region, to share with you a great typical meal and to have very pleasant moments together.
