My fiance and I stayed only one night at Casa do Valle, as when planning our Portugal vacation we weren't sure if we wanted to see Sintra (so touristed). I am so glad that we visited Sintra. It is such a beautiful town. And there are reasons it is so touristed: the amazing palaces and castles and views! Definitely worth at least 24 hours of your trip.
And staying with Virpi as Casa do Valle is a must if you do stop off in Sintra! She is extremely professional, prompt, friendly, and responsive to email, which I really appreciate. The guesthouse is wonderful; the room is clean, well-appointed, and the shower head delightful! We stayed in room 4. It was really nice; but in Casa do Valle (property is shared with Casa Da Vista), I think the best views must be from Rooms 5 and 6.
I love Virpi's system for breakfast. I usually am a grump in the AM, so sharing breakfast with all the other guests in a dining room is not my scene. Instead, she delivers to you the breakfast at the time you designate, so you can enjoy it in your room and on your balcony. awesome!
Free wifi excellent; takes credit cards--excellent; prices--excellent!
The location is excellent. Plenty of parking abound. Yes it is an uphill walk to the center of town, but it is short, it is good for you, and Sintra is full of hills so there's no avoiding them.
Hope to return someday!
