Villa Branca Jacinta is a gorgeous bed and breakfast place to base yourself in the fairytale town of Sintra. We recently spent 4 nights with Maria here and loved every minute of it. As a hostess, Maria is perfectly welcoming and will help you to enjoy your stay with sightseeing tips and honest country hospitality.
The room we had overlooked the garden, was simply but tastefully decorated and the bed comfy. Each of the rooms has an ensuite.
Enjoy a fresh and cooked breakfast that's deliciously filling to start your day.
I commented to Maria that her loquat tree was laden and the next morning she had fresh loquats for me at breakfast. She is lovely like that.
Maria also speaks 5 languages fluently, so no worries with misunderstandings.
Our tip for finding Villa Branca Jacinta is to download her map before you go. As her gate is not numbered, find number 5 then work back one property from there and push the button on the big metal gate for Maria to let you in.
We found the location ideal for Sintra. Out of the busy, noisy older city area yet still easy access to everywhere as we did not have a car.
Would i stay at Villa Branca Jacinta again? Definately!
