We are thrilled to be offering this amazing property in Bucelas, just 30km from Lisbon. The house is part of an estate located in a protected and remote area of exceptional biodiversity with amazing views and the vineyard is certified sustainable, using only traditional methods with no chemical fertilisers. The estate is a mass of flora and fauna and guests can arrange a tour of the vineyard, winery and a wine tasting during their stay and will be welcomed wtih some of the wine produced here on their arrival. It is also possible to purchase some of the wines from the cellar of the property.
The house is spacious and light with a large living area and traditional style kitchen with all the modern appliances. There is a beautiful, white, Steinberg grand piano in the living room which is tuned and maintained regularly and the owner asks that only accomplished pianists play. It will not be made available to those who are not experienced piano players but it is a delight to behold nonetheless. There are french doors and skylights throughout this level allowing the light to flood into this lovely space.
A wooden, open staircase leads up to a library and study area (care should be taken with young children) for those who want to escape the midday sun and relax with a good book.
The living area spills out beautifully onto the terrace and pool area which takes full advantage of the panoramic views of the surrounding vineyard and countryside. There is a covered space with outside dining furniture for long, lazy lunches or candlelit dinners.
The owner would like it noted that there is no pool fence or security alarm around the pool so care should be taken with small children. Also on the estate (quite some distance from the main house) is a large event space which is perfect for summer parties or wedding celebrations. Just ask us if you require more information about this.

We have a varied collection of properties in fabulous locations which are an easy drive from Lisbon Airport. Just 28kms south of Lisbon, across the River Tagus is the beautiful Arrábida National Park with breath taking scenery and beaches, stretching for some 22 miles between Sesimbra and Setúbal, this area is carpeted by wild flowers which are amongst the most colourful and varied in Iberia. The coastline at Sesimbra is beautiful and dramatic, the town has some fantastic seafood restaurants and local activities include an array of water sports, scuba diving, climbing, cycle trails, horse riding and boat trips. Sintra inspired Lord Byron to write 'Glorious Eden' and it is easy to see why. It is a picturesque town, amidst the pine-covered hills. The panoramic scenery and slightly cooler climate historically enticed the nobility and elite of Portugal, who constructed exquisite palaces, extravagant mansions and decorative gardens, most of which...
are now open to the public and well worth a visit. Quinta do Peru is also to the south of Lisbon, close to Azeitão. Located in a forest of pine and cork trees, it is an area of great natural beauty with an excellent golf course. Dolphin watching trips can be arranged and kayaks and sail boats can be hired in nearby Setúbal. The Herade da Aroeira is surrounded by 10kms of some of the best beaches in Portugal; Fonte da Telha has a number of small restaurants and beach bars which specialise in grilled fish - some of them have wonderful terraces - perfect for enjoying a cool glass of wine whilst watching the sun set. After night fall some turn into "discos". About 7kms from the resort there are a wide range of beach bars, all quite different, with something for every taste, from a simple wooden hut to the more sophisticated. The resort has two golf courses, carved from a dense pine forest, with tree lined fairways bordered by water. Aroeira hosted the 1996 and 1997 Portuguese Open, with the Donald Steel course opening in 2000 to rave reviews.
we love this part of Portugal. The fascinating history and spectacular buildings, the vibrant green landscape and dramatic coastline and the impressive golf courses make staying in this area a truly memorable experience.
we cant think of any!
