Boutique Hotels You Haven't Heard Of

Convento de São Saturnino

Location: Sintra, one of the prettiest and most historic towns in Portugal

Andrew Harper's take: "Located in Sintra, about a half-hour's drive from Lisbon, the Convento de São Saturnino is a rambling warren of Mediterranean-style buildings that was once a derelict hamlet. Every room is furnished with flea-market finds and objets d'art from around the world. You won't find televisions, telephones, Web access, or air-conditioning, but you will be treated to truly remarkable ocean views. I woke up here one morning to the cries of seagulls, a soft salt-tinged breeze, and one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen—a green valley funneling toward the Atlantic Ocean. A very peaceful place."

Cost: Doubles from $235
