"Active Relaxation"

The Lodge is an excellent place to relax in an active way. The holiday feeling starts already at the pick up from Portela de Sintra (free between 9:00-18:00 if pre-booked) with a scenic drive towards the coast and tour around the (shortcut) route to the Praia Grande beach, nearby restaurants with recommendations (e.g. sunset dinner), supermarket - hardly any need for Google map.

Pierre, the mountain-bike guide, was very nice, good and patient and with obvious good knowledge of the area. Routes are chosen according to your experience, preference...and fears. Yoga classes are available twice a day. I am absolutely not a MTB-fan nor a yoga-fanatic, but I thoroughly enjoyed those activities. The surf instructor was also nice and good but I went on a sunny Saturday so unfortunately the beach and sea (at Carcavelos) was too crowded.

Overall, the well-maintained beautiful garden, comfortable clean rooms, available facilities (swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, hammocks, kitchen access with assigned storage shelf and place in fridge, honesty-fridge filled with drinks and beer, tea& fruit all day, BBQ, living room with TV and books, gym equipment, bicycles), good breakfast buffet and packed lunch, nice staff and excellent service, make this place deserve its excellent star rating. It's an ideal place to stay if you are looking for a short-or long-term active relaxation - no shortage of de-stress opportunities at all.

"Amazing oasis’s of happiness "

This is a great place , it offers calming oasis with yoga , pool and fabulous gardens and their friendly team is what all holiday places should aspire to . It’s perfect place and starting point to book your self for one of climbing , surfing or mbt sessions , whole process was smooth and easy even if you are total beginner as I was. Beach and restaurants are short walk to village and perfectly accessible by foot and Sintra castles are 20 min bus or Uber drive 😀. I will definitely be back LOVED IT ..

"Hidden Gem "

The Lodge is a beautiful place very close to the beach and ancient Sintra and it’s wonderful castles and palaces. The staff are amazing and make you welcome, and there is always a great vibe around the place with guests visiting from all over the world.

"Exceeded Expectations "

It’s relaxed and yet ordered and organised ambiance. As a total surf novice and with a partner new to Yoga we found this a wonderful place to be all levels seem to be well catered for.

"Peaceful, tranquil place to unwind "

A lovely retreat, set in gardens that felt almost botanical. Very relaxed place, opportunity to drop in and out of surfing and yoga. Delicious food, well equipped kitchen and cute little converted barn accommodation. Excellent variety of yoga with different instructors offering alternative styles. We felt fully relaxed, switched off and at home here!

"Beautiful getaway"

I had the loveliest time at The Lodge! The Yoga was fantastic. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a lovely en suite bathroom. There are so many fun activities, the beach is a 10 minute walk away, or you can just relax in the lovely pool and garden area. The staff are so friendly and helpful.

Unkomplizierte, sehr angenehme zwanglose Atmosphäre. Ich fühlte mich sehr wohl in der Lodge und fand als Alleinreisender schnell Anschluss in bestehende Gruppen. Gerne wieder!

"Unique Experience"

Everything was well organized and all employees were very friendly. My trip from and back to train station was also excellent as the driver told me a lot about the area and the history of it. Both yoga instructors were great, they had different style of teaching, but it was nice to experience them both. The beach was nearby and it was clean and not crowded. I wish I had booked my stay for longer period to have enough time to take surfing classes as well. I think three days is not enough for this treat, if you can book five, at least.

"Nice location but several annoying details"

"Wonderful stay!"

The place was very nice, cosy room, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, exactly what I needed to forget about everything else!

The yoga classes were very good, with a great instructor (Madelena, but her name doesn't appear in the dropdowns), very attentionate with both beginners and experienced practitioners, and always with a sunny smile!

Recommended to have a vehicle if you want to visit the many interesting places in and around Sintra in between classes.

"Cute property, but plan ahead to be off grid. Car preferred."

The renovated horse stable rooms are tight, but super cool. No full privacy with gaps between top and bottom swinging doors that need to be secured in winds (which will still affect you if your neighbor doesn't secure theirs). The grounds are very pretty! The breakfast sometimes had almond milk in the morning, but usually only soy. The sauna room is very nice, it's just odd that you have to book it during limited, later in the day hours.

"Great few days away"

Everything is so carefully thought of and the staff are so helpful and will try and help answer any query. The shops take a little longer to get to than is suggested but easy to find. If you are the sort of person who books an active holiday and you are self reliant this is perfect accommodation and base for you. I liked everything.

The kitchen and sauna/jacuzzi facilities were great (though there was an extra charge for these on most days, there were 2 free/no-charge) days per week). There was a nice outdoor swimming pool and some lovely hammocks for relaxing in.

The staff were quite friendly. The breakfast and self-made lunches were pretty good.

"A lovely tranquil place to do yoga and chill."

Friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous pool and gardens - the sea is too cold so the pool was great. Very good kitchen and BBQ so we shopped at the local market for very good fish and veg and cooked a few meals at the Lodge and ate in the pretty garden. Breakfast buffet was extensive and plentiful. 10 minute walk to a lovely beach - Praie Grande - with steep cliffs, golden sand and crashing waves or a bit longer to a smaller beach along the coast path.

"Great relaxing holiday"

The starpine lodge is such a relaxing place to be. The breakfast is lovely, the staff really nice, the surfing brilliant and the yoga relaxing and energizing. Would go back i a heartbeat. You meet lovely people as well so also great to go if you are on your own. Praia Grande is the place to watch an amazing sunset and only 5 minutes walk

"Great facilities, very well run"

This place is run by Germans, and you can tell as everything is high quality and runs like clockwork.

They are EXTREMELY helpful and it's a great place for a worry and stress free getaway.

It's a nice concept where they have a continental buffet breakfast, pack your lunch from there, then can eat out or use a great community kitchen for dinner.

De omgeving was ontzettend mooi. Er was een grote tuin met veel bomen en bloemen. Het was er heel rustig en een hele fijne sfeer. Alles was zeer goed verzorgd; de kamer, het eten, de mensen waren zeer vriendelijk en de yoga (van Masha) was heel goed, ze wist echt een hoop.

"Spontaner Surf & Yoga Urlaub "

Man kann sich in der Lodge einfach nur wohlfühlen und wärmstens weiterempfehlen! Gerade auch für Alleinreisende ist diese Unterkunft perfekt! Ich habe mich selten so wohl an einem fremden Ort gefühlt. Super Team + super Gäste erwarten einen dort.

Ich würde definitiv wieder einen surf & yoga Urlaub in The Lodge machen :)

The Lodge is the perfect place to relax and enjoy. It’s a beautiful, quiet, green place and there’s everything one may need, either direct on site or within walking distance.

Both Yoga teachers (Magdalena & an other woman -sorry I forgot her name!) are really good and absolutely lovely, bringing each their own touch and light.

Both surf teachers (Luis & Ivo) were awesome, patient and communicating their love for the ocean and for this sport.

Thank you all at the Lodge for making this stay one to remember :-)

"Wish I could have stayed longer"

This place is amazingly beautiful, cosy and relaxing! I loved the little cottage (former stable) I stayed in, the garden is sooo beautiful and the yoga instructor was really good. The staff was really friendly and I had nice evening chats and dinners with fellow guests (I was travelling alone, so that was nice!). All around great atmosphere and I loved my stay, I will definitely go back!

Die Yogalehrerinnen waren sehr sehr herzlich, aufmerksam und motivierend. Wir haben immer neue Übungen kennenlernen dürfen und ausprobiert. Die Teilnahme an den Yogastunden erfolgte sehr flexibel, was man sich im Urlaub genau so wünscht!

The Lodge war immer super sauber. Das Personal war wirklich wirklich fleißig und sehr aufmerksam!

Die Zimmer sind so herzerfüllend und liebevoll ausgestattet, da möchte man nicht mehr weg!

Das Frühstücksbüffet war jeden Morgen nach dem Yoga ein Highlight und sehr einladend zubereitet :)

Vielen Dank!

"Genialer Surf u Yoga Urlaub"

Es war ein super Urlaub. Die Lodge verfolgt ein echt cooles Konzept und man fühlt sich dort pudelwohl. Die Unterkunft ist einzigartig und es fehlt an nichts.

Das Personal ist unfassbar freundlich und den ganzen Tag damit beschäftigt es einem dort so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten.

Der Surfkurs war klasse, auch die Orga hat einwandfrei funktioniert.

Ebenso hatten wir abends den Yoga Kurs gebucht und ich war positiv überrascht. Ich fand es auch super, dass es zwei Yogalehrerinnen gibt und somit auch Abwechslung geboten ist.

ICh kann die Lodge nur empfehlen und komme gerne wieder!!!

Der Yogakurs, vor allem unter der Woche, ist eher nicht geeignet für Anfänger- aber auch vor Ort optional zu buchen, sofern man es einfach probieren möchte. Ansonsten: Toller Kursraum, sympathische Kursleiterinnen und eine großartige Erfahrung.

Die Anlage ist super schön, sehr gepflegt, die Zimmer hell und freundlich und sehr sauber, ordentlich.

Das Frühstücks-Buffet ein Traum (nur an den Plastikflaschen für das Lunchpaket könnte man noch arbeiten).

Ich hab lediglich das Yoga am Morgen gemacht, weil ich am Nachmittag immer unterwegs war, aber das war mega entspannend und ein perfekter Start in den Tag.

Die Mitarbeiter der Lodge sind alle super freundlich und versuchen jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen, gerade wenn es um Ausflüge (klettern, surfen, bouldern, Sintra) geht.
