This beautiful villa has a large, heatable swimming pool, sea views and a sauna. Surrounded by lovely countryside the villa is tastefully decorated and is located to the south of Lisbon. The beach is within walking distance or guests may use one of the two mountain bikes. For parties which include children we suggest a trip to Lagoa de Albufeira (not the Algarve one), here the children can play in the calm, warm water. Lisbon is just a half an hours drive and there are two great golf resorts within half an hour; Aroeira and Quinta do Peru. Also nearby is Sesimbra, a pretty fishing town with some excellent seafood restaurants, where you can enjoy the fresh fish and a nice glass of the local "Vinho Verde".
The villa is on two levels. On the gound floor the living/dining room/kitchen is open-plan and has comfortable sofas, a fireplace, TV and access to the terrace overlooking the pool, as does the double bedroom located on this level. If the group includes young people there is a mezzanine above the sitting room with a sofa bed. There are two roof terraces which have lovely views across the countryside to the sea.
There is a large, private garden and a sun terrace with loungers and sun/wind screens, there is also a pool house with a sauna.
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.
