Quinta da Nossa Senhora Do Socorro, Lisbon Coast

Property ref: PL402


Maximum: 13 adults plus 2 child/children

This magnificent estate has 10,400 square metres of gardens and is close to the village of Magoito in Sintra/Cascais Natural Park, a World Heritage site. The property is secluded and quiet and it is difficult to believe it is so close to the village centre.

The main house dates back to the early part of the 20th century and over the years has played host to numerous visiting dignitaries. The entire property has been completely renovated yet many of the original features have been retained; traditional hand-painted tiles have been kept in the suites and some of the bedrooms. A flight of steps leads to a terrace with views across the countryside and the front door opens onto a reception hall which has an impressive inscribed fireplace, hand-painted beams and leads to the formal dining room. The large kitchen has the original blue and white tiles but is fully equipped with modern appliances.

The house has its own carefully restored chapel and the spacious living room, which houses the snooker table, has steps up to the original wine press. As there are some low ceilings and open stairs which add to the overall character care should be taken with young children in some areas of the house. The bedroom on the lower level contains a stunning and unusual bathroom with a freestanding bath and basin; it is designed around the original well which has been covered with reinforced glass and in the winter the water rises up to the level of the glass - perfectly safe but unique! From this level double glass doors lead on to a secluded terrace with steps up to the garden. Paths wind through the various areas of the garden which is a mass of colour with a variety of fruit trees, lawns and rose bushes.

There are two separate suites set away from the main house which are only made available for groups of more than 10 people. Each of them has its own living room, underfloor heating and an air-conditioned bedroom with en-suite shower room. The Stable Suite has a beautiful polished cobbled floor and the manger has been cleverly adapted into washbasins. It also has its own constantly flowing, shallow, covered cooling-off pool (which as an alternative can be heated up to 32°C). 

The tennis court has a fast-draining, fast-playing porous cement surface for recreational play only.  It is overlooked by a terrace with a parasol and directors chairs where the less energetic can enjoy a G & T! The impressive L-shaped pool house is set away from the main house and has glass doors opening onto the reduced chlorine pool. Another area of the garden has an ornamental pond and fountain. There is garden furniture and sun loungers by the summer house, ideal for sunbathing and with views as far as the Pena Palace in Sintra - the centre of Sintra is only 20 euros by taxi.

In the area there are seven golf courses; sailing, windsurfing, big game fishing and scuba diving are all available in Cascais and tailor-made activity tours are also available for our guests and can be arranged and paid for locally. The area is excellent for walking, cycling, climbing, horse riding and "parapente" or kitesurfing.

Map

Discover the Lisbon Coast...

Things we love
"The Lisbon Coast is an ideal choice for those who want to combine a lazy day by the pool with a city adventure. Foodies will love the variety of restaurants and vineyards and you will need your camera at the ready to capture the amazing buildings, gardens and spectacles along the way."
Things to be aware of
"A visit to the city is a must but we suggest using public transport for day trips rather than taking a car as parking is tricky. There are trams that take you round the city and we can also arrange transfers and tours from your accommodation and back again for the ultimate stress-free day out."




If you require a car for you holiday please contact us.
