Villa Palhais is a Portuguese style villa located in Charneca da Caparica.
This charming holiday home has been renovated in a modern style with a fully equipped kitchen with open plan dining area, a comfortable living room with L-shaped sofa and colourful scatter cushions and 4 spacious bedrooms with air conditioning and plenty of storage space. Please note, there is an open, spiral staircase between the levels so care should be taken with young children (see photos).
Outside, the swimming pool is fenced for additional peace of mind when travelling with little ones, although care should always be taken of course. There is a lovely outside dining space and, for those who love cooking outdoors, there is a kitchenette including a barbeque, oven, stove and a sink making this the perfect spot for entertaining and alfresco dining. There is also table tennis and a badminton net for the young at heart.
Walking distance from the property there are restaurants, a supermarket, a fitness centre and a bus stop just 50m away with services into the city centre. Costa da Caparica is just 3km away with dozens of white sandy beaches that stretch for miles. Countless restaurants and bars can also be found here and it is a popular place for sunset drinks after a lazy day in the sunshine. It is also just 17km from Lisbon city centre making this a great choice for those wanting to explore the vibrant capital.

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.
