“Hard to imagine it getting better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

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.

Hello -

So glad you enjoyed it at Casa do Valle! Patricia is indeed wonderfully accomodating and efficient. I am happy to hear that you were pleased with her services as well as with your room and the overall setting. We find our place ideal for relaxation, that is why we have the hammock and other little corners prepared for that. As you mentioned, the grounds are on multi-level, so you can always find your own little spot! We now have yoga on the large lawn twice a week to add to relaxation - and to strech those muscles after a day's walk on the mountain, as often is the case.

Thank you again for having chosen Casa do Valle for your holiday accomodation in Sintra! It was our pleasure to host you,

Virpi

Everything was perfect!
Comfortable rooms,extremely clean, friendly staff, superb views .. (perhaps one thing to improve is the breakfast). Ideal to relax and enjoy. Perfect for kids.
Definitely going back again.

We stopped for one night at Sintra during our holiday in Lisbon and I'd say everything was adequate about our stay at Casa do Valle. The staff were very friendly, nice views from room, peaceful area, not too far from centre. The garden was well maintained and the pool looked well used by the other guests. However, having stayed in quite a few B&Bs around the world, I'd say it was a bit overpriced - 90euros a night for quite a basic room and no breakfast - for what we got. Having said that, Sintra is a major tourist hotspot and Aug is peak season so that may be the going rate in that town.

Hello,
Glad you found everything pleasant and the staff friendly here at Casa do Valle. We do take good care of the garden and the pool has indeed been well liked and used by our guests this summer, as the water temperatures have been a comfortable 25 to 26ºC.

Regarding the prices, ours are average prices in the region, actually lower than others with a pool. I am sure you can find cheaper accomodations, but not with a garden and a pool, close to the center.

Best regards,

Virpi

We have been planning our family trip (3 adults,2 students,two teens) for several weeks - we decided to have a look of the main places of interest in Portugal. And,of course, Sintra was in our plan,but we hadn't expected, that it would be so beautiful!! Unbelievable palaces! I would stop on our stay at Casa do Valle. It's a pity that we stayed there only one day. Everything was perfect and comfortable - imagine: you have a tasty breakfast near the swimming pool with an admirable view at the main palaces on the mountain, like in a movie! Rooms were very clean with all necessary things - fridge, kettle, cups and plates, internet access, comfortable beds^ close to the old centre. I recommend tourists to stay longer in Sintra, only in Casa do Valle - 3-5 days - for getting full relax.

Room Tip: all rooms gave good location( we occupy 3 rooms). triple room has big extra bed.

Hello - We are happy that you and your family enjoyed it at Casa do Valle. You were so right about the time, it is ideal if you can stay longer as there is so much to do! And in the end, it is nice to relax as well, Now it is nice to relax in the hammock, on a day-bed or in the pool. We have yoga on the big lawn during summer months as well, and there is usually some fruit that is ripe. Now it is pears.

Greetings from Sintra, Virpi

I don't usually take the time to review, but Casa do Valle is worth a visit. Great views from our room and every day we had a leisurely breakfast on the deck. We would have made more use of the pool if we had not been so busy. It's a good place to relax, gardens and pool are well maintained, staff very helpful for any arrangements you needed. I would definitely stay here again.
It is a 10 minute walk uphill (max) to the centre of Sintra

Hello! Greetings from the place with the view - so glad you it and the house and the deck as well! I am a bit like you now, too busy to enjoy it all with many places to see and things to do. But it is all here in the winter, too, when the life is less busy! You should come again then to relax - too cold for the pool , but the weather is great for walking then, and normally the temperatures in the daytime are 10-18º, and about 4-10º at night.

Maybe we will see you then?!

i will start by saying i have stayed in many beautiful hotels all around the world and i have thought about writing great reviews but never stopped to take the time!!!
However this very simply all you could possibly want and more hotel Casa do Valle quickly changed that!!!
In the perfect location just a short walking distance from the heart of Sintra, this beuatiful house with not too many guests, yet a fun athmosphere for all ages, with the most helpful staff and fresh home made strawberry ice tea by the pool each evening ... is situated! The views are also out of this world.
I didn't have any meals there because as i was away with such a large group we had dinner plans else where everyday, but we did however eat in 3 restaurants suggested by the staff in Casa do valle and each was delightful as they had said!
At a very reasonable price and after visiting many other hotels in Sintra as my friends and family were staying all around, I would strongly suggest that you stay here, and if i ever return i will do the same!! enjoy ur holiday!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay late June into August 2013. Patricia was wonderful helping with any and all requests.
Sintra is a stunning place and EVERY visitor to Portugal should go there. Casa do Valle is the perfect place to take it all in and create memories of a lifetime,
l thoroughly recommend both Sintra and this beautiful place to stay. The hill is not a big walk and the town is gorgeous....the views from Casa do Valle are outstanding. We stayed downstairs in the older part. lt was a great room, internet access and the pool just a minutes walk outside the door.
