Look at this dreamy historic hotel that House Crazy Sarah came across in the town of Sintra, Portugal.
Chalet Saudade dates back to 19th century and is surrounded by beautiful scenery.
Chalet Saudade recently underwent a 5-year renovation to modernize and also to preserve its historic character including stunning trompe l’œil frescoes and romantic gardens with antique water fountains and ponds.
Have a look inside this gorgeous place!
Sculptured French doors open to a fabulous sunroom.
Every common room in the Chalet Saudade is a visual delight.
Don’t forget to look up at the gorgeous frescos!
When it comes to the guest rooms, they are equally elegant and no two are alike.
This ground-floor guest room has amazing, rustic exposed stone walls.
Other rooms on higher floors have windows and balconies that open to views of the quaint town and Portuguese countryside.
Most of the rooms are spacious and some even have kitchenettes.
A couple of lucky ground-floor rooms open to the romantic garden…
All of the rooms are infused with a certain antique romance.
High ceilings contribute to the elegant ambiance.
Continuing up the staircase, there are charming attic rooms with dormer windows.
The views from the top-floor balcony are splendid.
And then there is this whimsical scene in miniature:
A guest room for elves?
Chalet Saudade is completely enchanting from top to bottom!
