We stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful colonial house with a super friendly landlady, Maria and her dog. The guests rooms are upstairs and are simple clean and elegantly presented with parking on a quiet road outside the entrance.
We were the only couple staying at the time so it felt very intimate and tranquil. Breakfast was laid out beautifully with warm crepes, fruit and lovely bread, it was like our own private retreat. Maria gave us helpful tips on restaurants and the history of the area. The walk into the old town is approximately 15 mins but it’s such a scenic walk and in March the smell of orange blossom was intoxicating. We loved spending time in Sintra and the surrounding area and would not hesitate to stay at Villa Branca Jacinta again.
