I'm taking a large group to Lisbon end of Aug. Anyone have good info about train stations and their location in relation to the Ritz Carlton Penha Longa?
Have a look at this page:
It gives some guidance about the location etc. It would seem that some organisation is required ! Its roughly midway between Sintra and Cascais.
Thought it would be a cinch to reply but I have to agree with PuertoLover... from Hotel Penha Longa, some planning is required. Check out the link he gave you for your hotel, seems you can email the concierge for help in planning transportation.
I recently went to Sintra from Rossio Station in Lisbon, back same day. It's about 30 minutes one-way and very pleasant.
The Penha Longa is very close to Linho, which is 5 minutes to Sintra, where you take the train to Lisbon. You arrive at Rossio Train Station in the heart of Lisbon. Below is a link to the English schedule of trains from Sintra to Lisbon (practically a train every 20 minutes.)
You can probably arrange transportation by minibus or van(s) from your hotel in Linho, to Sintra. The concierge will know the best way out and back.
