We were in Sintra for only two nights for a friend's wedding - the venue was only in walking distance from the B&B.

It was a quiet tucked away place - which we like and our room was simply lovely. Amazing views and yummy simple breakfast served in your room. Room was a great size, bathroom clean and everything you needed.

Staff really helpful and nothing too much.

We will definitely return - it was a flying trip, but memorable place to stay. Highly recommended.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled as a couple

Hi there - and thank you for your nice review! It seems to capture everything we strive for - clean, simple but nice accomodation, good service and tasty breakfast. The closeness to the Historical Center is a plus - walking distance or a cheap taxi drive away to most everywhere.

So glad you enjoyed your stay! Please do come again, this time with more time to explore the surroundings.

Best regards,

Virpi

Quiet place, people were really nice to us even though I was travelling with kids. Would definitively recommend and stay there again. Excellent breakfast. Excellent location. Would love to have had a tv although it was not something we terribly missed.

Room Tip: No children or fitmess centre

Hello - we are glad that you and your chikdren stayed with us at Casa do Valle, and also that you enjoyed our place and our breakfast.

Regarding the TV: We actually do have a central antena and TVs for all the rooms available, with around 80 national and international channels. The TVs are not permanently in the rooms, as many of our guests prefer not to even see them. Many say that if they see a TV in the room, they automatically turn it on, which takes from the relaxation and break from the everyday routines that they come to loók for at Casa do Valle. The possibility of asking for the TV is mentioned in the guest information book which is in all the rooms. Your comment has made it obvious though that many of guests do not notice it, so from now on, we will make sure that this information is clear to all guests. Thank you for pointing it out to us!

Best regards,

Virpi

We had excellent weekend in Casa do Valle, enjoying very beautiful Sintra and relaxing by the ocean. The view from Casa do Valle is astonishing, you can see all the way up Sintra mountain and all the way down the valley at the same time. Casa do Valle offered us peace and quiet time even though it is located just five minutes walk from the historic centre of Sintra. During our stay we rented e-bikes (electrically assisted) and cycled up the mountain and down to the beach. It was fantastic way to see and explore Sintra and its surroundings. We also had a romantic tour around the historic centre in a carriage pulled by 2 horses. Sintra, with all its beautiful things, managed to give us well earned break from our busy work back home.
We were very satisfied with the services and facilities Casa do Valle offered us, it is absolutely a place worth staying!

Hello,

Thank you for reviewing us - and thank you for choosing Casa do Valle as your destination for your weekend getaway! Taking the E-bikes and the horse and carriage is becoming increasingly popular, as more and more people like slow-traveling to relax. And that includes the long lunches and dinners. No fast anything !

Glad you enjoyed it here - welcome again!

We spend a 12 days holiday in Sintra and it was great.
At Sintra there is a lot to do and to see and within a 40 mins traintrip to Lissabon, you will find even more exciting things.
But the most wunderfull was our stay in Casa do Valle, It is a clean and quit place and the hospitality is great. All the people there want to make your stay as enyobale as possible.
Including tips to do/see or were to eat. Also drinking home made icetea at the simming pool is a highlight.
Thaks and see you again.

Hello! We here at Casa do Valle are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. You were here in the unusually hot days, which we hoped to cool down with the homemade ice tea in the afternoons. Glad it was agreeable to you - this was in fact our aim!

I have told Patricia and the other ladies that you were pleased with their services and they were also happy to hear that, as they do try their best to make our guests feel welcomed.

Best regards from Sintra, maybe we will see you again!

Hello - Thank you for reviewing us! After touring around Portugal you easily do get a feeling of a castle after castle; the history of Portugal includes lots of battles and wins and castles and fortresses! Good thing you enjoyed rewinding and relaxing here - on holidays, that is so important!

Glad that the bathroom in the corredor worked for you. You stayed in the only room we have where the bathroom, though private is not ensuite. As you mentioned, it is large and so close that it works well for most people.

Hope you arrived back to Australia rested and thinking of us in Sintra and Portugal in general with fondness.

Best regards.

Casa do Valle is located on two levels, we had lower rooms with valley view (please ask of these if available). These come with their own patio and great views of the valley in front looking Quinta de Regallarie, Pane Castle and Moors Castle. In the night when lights are off, you can see moon rise above those mountains and the feeling is lovely. The rooms are basic with good furnishing. The bathrooms are reasonable size but with good shower (powerful). There is a kitchenette which can be used for basic cooking (we mainly used the tea coffee making facilities). The fridge is small but sufficient and fresh water bottle was supplied every day which was very useful. Children slept on sofa-bed which was good size for them. There is space to sit out on the patio for breakfast of general evening lazing around. Pool is short climb up as well as small garden with hammock which our children enjoyed a lot. There are fresh plums hand picked available near pool which was a wonderful extra for us and we enjoyed it going up and down. The wireless connectivity is good (and I managed good quality skype calls while on holiday). Breakfast is optional and if you can manage to buy bread/cheese from local stores yourself you can manage without it. The dog "Pandora" is really friendly and great hit with children.

We also used services of Zita - who provides car pick up and car tours around near by area. She was recommended by the owners and was a great help. She is knowledgeable about the local area and very friendly. If you need a car along with driver to move around in local area, please ask the owners to arrange it with her.

The rooms walls are thin so next rooms could hear our kids noises. Well kids will be kids.

Overall it was a great place to stay in Sintra and really enjoyable.

There is no air conditioner so if it really hot, you can feel bit stuffy. We were lucky to have pleasant nights (not so cold not so hot) so the fan provided was sufficient.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower villa are better I believe in terms of privacy, space and views. Also remember to pic...

Hi there - thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay - and though little time has passed, things have changed here! Now the plums are almost gone and we are anxiously awaiting for the pears and apples to ripen! There will lots of both this year.

Now we are back to our normal summer weather, which means that the nights are cool! Normally you will always need a long-sleeved option for the cool mountain air nights.

I have told Zita that you enjoyed her services. She does have a lot of local knowledge and is willing to share it! I am pleased that you found her services useful!

Best regards to you and your family, Virpi
