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.
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!
