Simply awesome experience: very cozy property with breathtaking views of Sintra Castles, amazing frienly staff (that helped us order pizza delivery to the room). We drove to the town and the castles, parking was easy to find on the street.

Greetings to Jersey City - and thank you for your nice review!

Believe it or not, you are not the only ones ordering food in - after a day of visiting the sites and walking on the mountain, many prefer relaxing in the garden or the terraces, enjoying the view and the lovely evenings! I am glad it was just awesome for you - happy to have been a part of your experience. Thank you for choosing Casa do Valle!

We spent five wonderful days at the villa. Beautiful views of the castles, big garden with flowers and fruit trees, wide territory in the yard and cozy and romantic rooms, that's how I can characterize this place. Very helpful personal, friendly and professional as well. Besides the walking distance to the train station and downtown and the possibility to have breakfast on the own little terrace. Very romantic and cozy place. I can recommend it to my friends and family.

Thank you for recommending us TashaMos, we are glad that you enjoyed your five days with us! The flowers continue, and now we have so many plums of all sizes and colors that noone can eat them all!
I will pass your message to our staff as well, they will be pleased that they were appreciated.

Best regards,
Virpi

Casa do Valle is nicely located, only 500m walking distance (uphill) from the historic center of Sintra, where you can find nice restaurants with good local food. The owners created a beautiful place where you can relax and enjoy the fairy tale like scenery from different spots in the garden and terraces.
Our room was very clean, comfortable and cozy. Also the beds are very comfortable and the breakfast is perfect with fresh fruits and warm rolls. The room had a small refridgerator and a watercooker.
Also it is easy to take the train to Lisbon. The trainstation is 15 min walking along different impressive artpieces and nice historic sites. When you return and too tired to walk, you could get a taxi easily for a few euros.
The staff is also very helpful, making you feel at home.

I recommend Casa do Valle to everybody who appreciates a relaxing, beautiful, pieceful environment.

What a nice review you wrote for us, Karin - thank you! We are all happy here that you have appreciated Casa do Valle, I will make sure to let all the staff know of your appreciation.
The town is indeed 500 meters up the hill, a good 5-10 walk yet not too far. And it is enough of a distance to create that relaxation feeling we have! And as you said, the taxis are not too expensive either.

Best regards to you!

The hotel is fantastic, personal is very kind and the rooms are beautiful, clean and new. We did not try the pool as the weather was really rainy, but it looked good. We enjoyed our night there and for sure we will go there again when we come back to Sintra.

Hello to Belgium! Thank you for your review. We have indeed had the same situation as the rest of Europe this year - awkward weather. Luckily Sintra has lots to do, and it is still nice to visit Sintra when it is not too hot! I am glad that you thought the rooms are new - they are not but we do take good care and are happy that they seemed new to you!
The pool temperature is now well over 25ºC, and, coupled with gorgeous sunsets, the evening swims have been worth it!
See you another time,

Virpi

Casa do Valle provides a wonderful base for exploring Sintra. It is just five minutes walk from Sintra town centre, yet in a very quiet location, with views down to the coast and up to Pena Palace and Moorish Castle. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. It is lovely to sit out on the balcony (when not too windy!). Virpi and Patricia are very welcoming and full of useful advice about places to visit and eat. Note that breakfasts are an optional extra, but very reasonably priced with delicious warm rolls.

Note if taking the tram down to the beach (recommended): you can board at Ribeiro just down the road, at the sharp bend, rather than walking to the starting terminus beyond Sintra train station.

Thank you for your review! You have given nice tips for the next guests, this is good! We are glad that you rested well and enjoyed your accomodations, as well as our recommendations. They come not only from personal experience but also from the comments of other guests, especially the restaurants. In fact, Patircia and I have recently visited many of these recommended restaurants and I am writing a blog entry of some of them today!
Thank you again for choosing Casa do Valle for your holiday!

We felt comfortable as soon as we arrived. The room was very comfortable and had a small terrace with views of Pena palace and the Moorish castle. Facilities to make a hot drink were provided in the room, which also had a small fridge. Terms are room only, but a choice of reasonably priced breakfasts is available, delivered to the room. We could eat at the table inside, or outside on the terrace.
Virpe provided us with a map and very useful walking directions so that we were able to walk to both the Pena palace and Moorish castle directly from the property. For evenings, it's only 500m uphill to the historic centre of Sintra so the location is excellent.
Very nice place to stay.

Hello PeterM59,

Reading your review made me think that we have done something right, thank you for that! We aim at comfort and practicality and are so glad that this came through in the small things as well as the bigger ones. We all love the region so my instructions for walks and sites is the least we can provide our guests with to make sure you get to what is most interesting to you, again, comfortably!

So glad you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you here again!

I visited Sintra in late April. Hotel Casa do Valle is surrounded by beautiful view. The staff of the hotel was really kind and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was great. The small pool was was also nice. It doesn't take long to walk to the restaurants and cafés near by.

Hello TIina,

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Casa do Valle. We are happy that you enjoyed our breakfasts and the pool! The walk to town is short but sufficiently long so that you enjoy the peace of the garden without the business of town! Thank you for visiting us and welcome again!
