Casa da Rocha is a place with history because it was in this property, in 1836, that was born casually the first pear tree of a new quality of pear, the now so famous Pêra Rocha that owes its name to the then owner, Mr. António Rocha. From here it has spread all over the region of Sintra and then to the West region and around the world.
“In 1836, Mr. Pedro António Rocha by chance discovered a different pear tree on his property, Fazenda Rocha, which was located in Ribeira de Sintra, in the western region, near Lisbon.
Proud of having unique fruits and unusual quality, every year in September friends are invited to enjoy the pears. It was from this tree that the variety spread and gained fame. In honor of its owner, this rare fruit was renamed Pera Rocha.”
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.

How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancellation policy).
