Tivoli Hotel Palácio de Seteais

Rua Barbosa do Bocage 8, Sintra, Lisbon, 2725-517, Portugal

Built in the 18th century as a home for the Dutch consul to Portugal, this suitably grand hotel is surrounded by pristine grounds 1 km (½ mile) from the center of Sintra. You enter under an arch that joins the building's two wings. Inside, public rooms have period furnishings, delicate frescoes, and Arraiolos carpets; guest rooms are individually styled, some with hand-painted wallpapers. The restaurant ($$$; reservations essential; dressy attire requested) serves set four-course meals. In summer, having coffee or tea on the terrace is a delight. There's a babysitting service on request, and staff will happily assist in booking rounds of golf at nearby courses.
