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

Cristina and Filipe were excellent hosts: welcomed us warmly and fully informed us about the most important topics to see in Sintra. The room clean and elegant, the breakfast perfect. Really a very good stay in a very special place. We remained there for only two nights, but we are thinking to come newly in the future in order to... More

Had a wonderful time at Villa Branca Jacinta. Our hosts Filipe and Cristina welcomed us warmly and spent time helping us plan to make the most of our visit to Sintra. Tucked away in a quiet location the Villa is still a convenient walk to the train. Our well appointed room - with a peek-a-boo view of the Castle of... More
