Overview

About the property

Villa Paradise (Sleeps 8 - 12 persons) on Silver Coast of Portugal

Villa Paradise is a luxury villa situated on the outskirts of Figueira da Foz, the popular seaside resort on the Silver Coast of Portugal. Built in 1937 and originally the only property in peaceful Casal do Mato, Villa Paradise has been lovingly restored and refurbished with style and comfort in mind.

The spacious first floor living area comprises an open plan kitchen with breakfast bar, dining room and comfy lounge with settee beds and log burner. The balcony has additional dining area with views of the Serra da Alhadas, as well as the spectacular private south-facing swimming pool and 6-seater luxury jacuzzi. During the day, relax on a sun lounger and cool off with a swim in the pool. On a sultry summer's evening, enjoy a cocktail in the hot tub and some alfresco dining beneath the pergola with a delicious BBQ! Also located on the ground floor are the 3 double bedrooms (one with pool view), bunk bedroom, family bathroom with hydro massage power shower and plenty of secure private parking.

Beautiful Home and wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this beautiful villa and we cannot recommend it enough! Traveling from California USA to Portugal we took our time looking online to find the perfect vacation home to rent---we were excited for our choice and when we arrived, we were blown away with how perfect the home was and how comfortable and welcoming Debbie and Steve were to us. A very central location, we were only moments from the beach and also the Castle at Montemor-o-Vello and Coimbra. If you are spending time in Figueira da Foz this is the perfect home to rent! We are so thankful we did!

Fantastic villa with superb pool

  • 5 of 5

This villa exceeded our expectations. The living space on the first floor is stunning, but the really brilliant thing about it is the large outdoor space with an excellent pool and hot tub. There is also a barbeque with running water for cleaning utensils. The owners are very friendly and helpful and have lots of useful suggestions for things to do. Super beaches and lovely food markets in Figuera. A car is essential.

Fully equipped fantastic property

  • 4 of 5

The property is immaculate. Fully and perfectly equipped luxury, the outside area is fantastic to spend a day by the pool, plenty of space to sunbathe, play ball, BBQ and just totally relax. The hosts are amazing. About 10 mins in a cab to town which is not your typical tourist area but more an authentic experience of Portugal. Amazing surf schools too. Highly recommended!

Just beautiful!! 10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic 2 weeks at this villa. It is beautifully presented and very comfortable. The pool, hot tub and BBQ area are well maintained, spacious and extremely inviting! The villa is equipped with everything you would require for a perfect villa holiday. We went with friends and family with a range of ages from 6 months to 70 years and everyone thoroughly enjoyed there stay. The owners Deb and Steve are very knowledgeable on the the area and gave us some great tips on what to experience during our stay! Nothing was too much trouble for them. If you are looking for a luxury villa in peaceful surroundings then this is the place! Our friends have already booked 2 wks, we hope to join them!

Superb Villa/holiday - Couldn't fault it!

  • 5 of 5

Felt very welcomed on arrival by owner, the villa was spotless and when shown around we were surprised how spacious the villa was. it exceeded expectations. I also love the contrast of traditional/modern that's used between the upstairs and downstairs of the place, the upstairs has the real WOW factor! So much so that my Mom actually cried as she was so overwhelmed! Our stay was perfect, we had lots of questions about the area and the owners were more than helpful in ensuring we had everything we needed and were comfortable. They couldn't have done more! Great place to go and relax and switch off, could have quite easily spent the whole holiday at the villa it was so gorgeous (especially having the pool and the hot tub!), however the nearest town (Figueira) is not far away and has real character with lovely bars, restaurants, shops etc and there are also lots of other lovely areas nearby worth exploring (which the owners recommended to us). Overall a perfect holiday with a mixture of relaxing and exploring the area, I would definitely recommend this property, it's just a gorgeous villa in a brilliant location and the owners really couldn't have been nicer. Couldn't fault it!

A fabulous family holiday for us all!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and were amazed at the space, the size of the pool and hot tub and general location. The property was clean and well looked after. We will definitely come back next year. I will bring my parents with us too as it was much bigger than we expected from the pictures. Well done to my daughter Amelia who learnt to swim on her holiday! Debbie & Steve who checked us in and out of the villa were friendly & helpful too they had great knowledge of the local area and helped with information on local restaurants, places to take the kids and the best beaches. They even arranged for cycle hire for us which was great as the scenery to take in was breath-taking. Brandon had his first ever surfing lesson, which he is still talking about nearly two months later. Overall, a big thumbs up from all of us and we will be back next year!

Located in Casal do Mato on the outskirts of the beautiful seaside town of Figueira da Foz, our luxury villa offers the perfect setting for relaxing in a private paradise. Situated midway between Porto and Lisbon with excellent travel links to both, our villa is just a 10 minute drive from Figueira known as the 'hidden gem of the Silver Coast' with miles of sandy blue flag beaches to enjoy and an array of water sports on offer.

Figueira da Foz has a wide selection of restaurants offering local fish, seafood and Portuguese delights as well as International cuisine. Its cobbled streets come alive after dark with outside bars, Casino and Clubs.

For the children there is 'Teimoso Aqua Park' (open June - September), Horse Riding at Quiaios, Adventure Park in the Serra do Boa Viagem, and just 2 miles from the villa is the Bowling Alley and Danceteria at '3 Chamines'. We can arrange surf lessons for all ages and levels, as well as wetsuit, bodyboard and surf board rentals. Why not explore the beautiful scenery that Figueira da Foz has to offer with a picnic and ice cream from the gelateria along the way!!

Famous for its uncrowded surf spots to suit all abilities Figueira hosted the WQS Men's 6* Championships in 2010 at Cabedelo beach. Meanwhile back on dry land you can enjoy the European Beach Rugby Tournament every Summer, along with Enduro and Triathlon competitions through the beautiful pine trees of the unspoilt Serra da Boa Viagem National Park.

Within 1km is Maiorca with its palace, small supermarket, bakery (fresh bread and cakes) and take-away churrasqueira (hot chickens).

Within easy reach and worthy of a day trip are:

Coimbra (old capital of Portugal, university town and great for shopping)

Montemor-o-Velho (castle, zoo and fortnightly market)

Aveiro (little Venice of Portugal)

Nazare (quaint fishing town)

Fatima.
