Casa do Valle

I was strolling around the breathtaking city of Sintra with Carlos, my good friend from southern Portugal. There are so many Moorish monuments, lavish gardens and impressive palaces, you just don’t know where to look. We walked away from the centre to Casa do Valle, where Carlos had arranged a room for me.

The alley became narrower and narrower, until we hit a fence after a couple of hundred metres. My first thought was ‘Where did I end up?’ But when Virpi Oliveira, the Finnish lady of the house, let us in, a true paradise revealed itself behind the gate. On the other side of Casa do Valle, we overlooked a magnificent valley with the impressive Castelo dos Mouros in the distance. It was like entering a quiet and serene natural reserve straight from the vibrant city centre.

Carlos and I looked overheated after our walk, so Virpi invited us to the garden for a refreshing dip in the swimming pool first thing. That is where we spent the rest of the day, enjoying the unforgettable view and the Portuguese sun.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.
