This villa is within the secure and private golf club resort of Quinta do Peru. The open-plan reception rooms are divided into three parts with four sets of French windows opening onto the garden and sliding doors separating the television room, which has three comfortable sofas. The cream and green kitchen is equipped with a large oven and duel fuel hob, a free standing fridge and a separate freezer. The bedrooms each has its own colourscheme with co-ordinating linen and towels.
The English owners have a young family and so have designed the garden and pool with safety in mind; the swimming pool has an ingenious electric sliding cover which, if used, makes the pool area particularly safe for children. The enclosed garden has a large lawn and mature landscaped borders. In the summer months, the garden is a mass of flowers and fragrances; rosemary, sweet bay, red hot poker, jasmine and lavender to name but a few and there are also several fruit trees including orange, lemon, clementine and apples.
The jasmine shaded barbeque terrace has a long white marble dining table looking over swimming pool and garden with its pool loungers.
This is the perfect choice for golfers and non-golfers alike; there are two large golfing cupboards at the front of the house, the clubhouse with a restaurant, is close by and there are also two tennis courts. The villa is eight minutes from the train station at Coina where there is a fast and modern train to the centre of Lisbon.
Situated to the south of Lisbon, Azeitão is a pretty and unspoilt village with a tradition of making amazing cheese with sheep's milk. Located in a forest of pine and cork trees near to the national park of Serra da Arrábida, the beaches of Alfarim, Galapos and Portinho are within easy driving distance. Most of the beaches have very good beach bars or restaurants. There are also many vineyards in the area where wine can be purchased directly - we enjoy Planalto (white) and Periquita (red). Quinta do Perú is a golfing resort and enjoys a tranquil setting and one of great natural beauty. The par 72 golf course, designed by Rocky Roquemore is one of the best in Europe and blends into the surrounding countryside.
We love this area and very much enjoy the local food.
