Reviews left by previous renters:

"We stayed at the Casa da Confraria in September 2004 for my wife's 40th birthday. We couldn't have been happier with the house and Sintra itself.

The house is at the top of a hill, and at night, you can walk out the front door and see all the way to the sea. At the bottom of the hill, there is a natural spring where the locals fill their water bottles, and we did as well. There were plenty of restaurants, both down the hill to the main part of town and over in Sao Pedro, which is walkable from the house. Sao Pedro also has a market every second and fourth Sunday with a wide variety of foods and products for sale, including an amazing bread stuffed with chouriço made in clay ovens permanently installed in the square there. Getting it hot out of the oven made it even more delicious.

There is also a local bus that stops at the bottom of the hill and goes into another part of Sintra where there is a grocery store.

Sintra itself is wonderfully beautiful, with two royal palaces and amazing courtiers' houses. But the surroundings were elegant and the site manager extremely helpful. The owner even gave us the number of a taxi driver who picked us up at the airport in Lisbon and took us to the house. We look forward to returning to Casa da Confraria, having had such a lovely time there."

"I have had the pleasure of staying at Casa Da Confraria (in both Casa Grande and Casa Piquena) on several occasions over the last 5 years. I always ensure I take enough time to have a small holiday with family and friends because it is so idyllic and magical.

Casa Da Confraria could not be better located. The house is on a convenient, yet quiet street that is peaceful and adds to the historical splendor of the area. Not only is it an easy and beautiful walk to Sintra, and many of the regional palaces, it is a simple drive to see other national treasures of Portugal and is conveniently located for drives to Lisbon, the Algarve or up north towards Porto. Market shopping is also very convenient for food or for gifts that are unique to the country.

Both houses are beautifully appointed and easy to use with a full complement of modern appliances. The proprietor has a house manager who is very familiar with the area and quite responsive to your every need. He also suggests a driver who is also responsive and interested in ensuring you see the best of what the area has to offer. The combination of the setting and supporting manager and driver ensure that anybody staying will have a fabulous time."
