We found the Casa through a popular guidebook (which can always be risky), and were not disappointed. We traveled to Sintra via Metro from Lisbon in mid-July and were immediately in love with the climate and the quaintness of the town. A cab from the metro station to the Casa was a necessity (HILLS and narrow streets made it so). Once the gate was open by our hostess Patricia we knew we had reached the destination to spend our extra flex day. The grounds included a wonderful multi-level garden, a pool and a magnificent view of the palace, castle and beautiful valley; not to mention the hammock hung between two palm tree in a quiet corner of the garden!
Our room was comfortable and clean, the min-fridge and several small kitchen appliances were a nice touch. Our patio was shared with another room, although we never saw our neighbors, and contained a comfortable table for four which was nice for an afternoon snack and breakfast.
Patricia, hostess was gracious and helpful, well beyond what we expected. We left early on our final morning, well prior to her arrival time for her daily shift, yet she made breakfast for us the night prior and made the taxi arrangements for pick-up.
Ater the large city experience of Lisbon, Sintra was a delight-well worth the trip. And, our stay at the Casa do Valle made it an excellent side trip. We can not recommend the Casa more highly.
