This property is perfect for a family or friends wishing to enjoy this lovely part of Portugal. The villa is part of a private condominium in a quiet area and is within walking distance of some the most dramatic and beautiful beaches on the Lisbon coast, with long stretches of sand and fossil cliffs. Rio da Prata Beach is about a kilometre away and can be reached on foot under the shade of pine trees. Bicas Beach is 2kms and Meco is about 3kms.
The accommodation is on two levels with a large, attractive living/dining room and a very well equipped kitchen. The master bedroom on the first floor has a balcony overlooking the swimming pool which is surrounded by lawns, with an outside dining table and a hammock.
Villa Solar is 3kms from Alfarim which has a few shops, a bakery, butcher, bank and so on, and Sesimbra, with more extensive shops, restaurants and an excellent fish market is 13kms. There are numerous water sports nearby including surfing and windsurfing at Praia das Bicas and Lagoa de Albufeira and ocean kayaking. Some of the most interesting scuba diving can be found at Portinho de Arrábida and Sesimbra.
There are five championship golf courses in this area, the nearest of which is Quinta do Peru. There are also several horse riding stables close by and as the wines of this region are particularly good we recommend a wine tasting tour.
MAP SHOWS APPROXIMATE LOCATION
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.
