Guest access

In addition to its historical, cultural and culinary heritage, Sines boasts a wide choice of outdoor leisure activities which will make your stay a memorable one.

Sines is located in one of the most preserved regions of the European Coast, protected by the Parque Natural do Sudoeste e Costa Vicentina (Forest Reserve of the Southwestern Alentejo and the Vincentian Coast). In only 30 kilometres of coast, Sines has beaches for everyone: family beaches, acessible to everyone and with many activities (S. Torpes: 9 Km; Morgavel: 11 Km; Porto Côvo: 18 Km; Ilha: 23 Km); evading beaches, for those who like large spaces (between the North Coast of Sines and the Troia Peninsula), and a group of small beaches with fine sand and clear waters, separated by large rocks, that look like they were made to create a feeling of intimacy and exclusivity (Samouqueira, Cerca Nova: 17 Km).

Other activities:

- Surf, bodyboard, windsurf and kitesurf lessons, in several Surf Schools in S. Torpes (9 Km) and Vieirinha (12 Km) beaches;

- Badoca Safari Park (15 Km)

- Rota Vicentina: a long distance path along the SW coast of Portugal, comprising two routes - the Historical Way and the Fishermen’s Trail. It totals 350 Km to walk, between the city of Santiago do Cacém (20 Km) and the Cape of St. Vincent, the most southwestern point of Europe.

Cultural activities:

- Festival Músicas do Mundo (FMM Sines): organised by the City Council of Sines since 1999, is the most important event of the cultural year in Sines and the biggest of the kind in the country. Held, every year, in July, FMM gathers the most important names of the world music circuit. With a programme and an environment that allows joining every kind of audiences to enjoy good music, it is a festival that manages to be at the same time youthful and for the family.

- Gastronomy Show “Tasquinhas Sines”: among all the reasons to come and visit Sines, the quality of its gastronomy is one of the first. The typical cooking of the district is based in fish and shellfish. The gastronomy of Sines and of the region celebrates in the beginning of the summer (July). Ten days of tasting pleasure, with the presence of “tasquinhas” (small eating houses) representing the restaurants and other local food houses. Dishes like açorda de marisco (shellfish panada) and feijoada de búzios (a dish of kidney beans with dog whelks) are also examples of the influence of the inland of Alentejo, resulting in an irresistible combination between the flavours of the coast and the plain.

- Carnival: Sines is one of the Portuguese cities with the greatest carnival tradition. Every year, thousands of people come from all parts of the country to see the Carnival (February) and the Summer Carnival (August).

You can enjoy all the amenities of the apartment, but given the fact that it is a building you must respect the common areas (lobby and elevator). You should leave the house clean when you leave (wash the dishes) and take the garbage outside at the end of your stay (there is a Recycle Bin right in front of the building). For security measures I recommend closing doors/windows during periods of absence. In case of doubt and/or difficulty feel free to contact me .

We stayed in Mary's house for a weekend to relax and enjoy the sea and the little city! The house is just like the pictures very clean and with new features! The terrace is amazing to spend a few hours watching the sunset with few drinks! Amazing restaurants nearby and the beach of Sines is just 10 min walking! Nicely located to drive through the coast and enjoy other beaches! Worth booking! If I want to return to Sines I'll definitely choose this host!

We had a great time at Mary's flat. It is packed with a lot of useful things, and is in a great location in Sines. She and her sister Maria also provided a lot of useful informations. The arrival was also great, even with a delayed flight and a pretty late arrival time, for which Maria was available. I can only recommend it !

We had a very pleasant stay at Mary's apartament . We felt just like at home. Nothing is missing there to make her guests confortable. The place is conveniently located in the center of the small town of Sines. Wonderful excursions to be done in the outskirts of the town, provided you like nature. After our vacation there, I understand why Mary is a "super host" . She provides quality above standard, always trying to make things easy for the hosts, and in a friendly way. We thank her, hoping we have the chance to repeat experience in the future.
