A beautiful home with charming hosts. We enjoyed the comfortable room, hot shower with fluffy towels and lovely fresh breakfast with the chance to chat with Cristina and Filipe and learn more about the area. Great to have easy parking outside the villa and Filipe's hints on how best to get around Sintra. A pleasant walk into town or access... More

Felipe and Cristina are very nice people. They gave us a very useful explication on what to do in Sintra, they answer all our questions whit a smile on theirs faces. The house is beautiful, and every detail is perfect. We arrived as costumers and leave as friends.

Pretty, relaxing B&B, run by nice, helpful couple who speak fluent English and French if not more. Hilly 10 minute walk into town center but Sintra is all about hilly walking anyway! Filipe, the owner, gave very useful advice on how and where to go. Good breakfast worth paying for.

A beautiful spot to relax after a day of touring. Phillip and Christina were hosts extrordinaire with lots of helpful information on what to see in Sintra and throughout Portugal. The villa is very private and quite with beautful gardens. The breakfast was delicious. As we came by train, Phillip offered us a half-day private auto tour at a reasonable... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Filipe's house and liked it very much: He took the time at the beginning for a warm welcome with lots of information and helpful recommodaction. Room was simple but good. He serves the best croissants and scumbled eggs in Portugal - together with fresh orange juice!

We can endorse all the positive reviews. Firstly our hosts Filipe and Cristina were excellent, very friendly and welcoming, and extremely helpful with planning and arrangements. We took them up on the offer of a half-day guided tour by car which was reasonably priced. The location is very good on a quiet street but less than 10 mins walk to... More

Lovely mansion with character, within walking distance of downtown Sintra. Superb reception of hosts Cristina and Filipe - what lovely couple (and we got to meet their sons too). The rooms are upstairs and we enjoyed comfortable beds and wonderful soft, fresh towels for our nice showers - a must when we travel and much appreciated. The breakfast of croissants... More

If the people are as important to you as the place, stay at Villa Branca Jacinta. Filipe and Cristina are the most helpful b&b hosts imaginable, accommodating, open and chatty. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and given a set of keys. Then Filipe sits with you to map out your visits to Sintra's many attractions in the... More
