You can enjoy the swimming pool- infinity pool ( 12 m x 6 m ) overlooking the sea and the Serra de Sintra. The large garden allows pleasant walks without leaving the property.

The house is about a 15 min walk (900 meters) from Guincho beach, Cresmina Beach and Abano beach. Located in a sparsely populated area and near the Natural Park of Sintra - Cascais, keeps most of its natural and wild nature. You can wander through the wild dunes and along the coast to reach the beaches.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, Cascais, a fishing village, was the summer residence of the Portuguese monarchy, and during World War II constituted shelter to the European Nobility. Along the Costa do Estoril-Cascais you will find its known beaches.

Just a short drive away, encircling the sea and enjoying the mountains, you will find small towns worth a visit and the most western point of Europe, Cabo da Roca, before reaching the charming historic town of Sintra.

Fantastic property, amzing infinity pool.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic property, great location and lovely owners.

We chose Guincho as the location for our holiday due o the windsurfing and surfing. We now just needed to find a place to stay. There are only 2 hotels on Guincho beach: Forteleza (a Relais and Chateau property approx £4000 for a family of 5 for 2w in high season with a 2* Michelin restaurant-well worth a visit ) and Muchaxo hotel (bit down at heal and a family room was around £2100 for 2 weeks with breakfast). There are no other villa's or properties to stay actually on the beach and most properties are actually located up the coast in Cascais, Estoril or up in the hills in Sintra. We wanted to be in Guincho. We found this property & it looked perfect-3 bedrooms, generous proportions inside, a large garden, amazing infinity pool, good price and great location. My only reservation was that it was underneath the owners own house. I needed have worried. Not only were the owners aboslutely lovely and couldn't have been more helpful but they were very discrete. In fact days went and we didnt' see them, not once were they around the pool when we were, not that we would have minded. Fillipe was very kind when we arrived at 5am and came and let us in. He made sure he explained the property and also the surrounding area's. The rest of the time it was like we had our own villa. The property is set up as a large living space in the middle with kitchen, dinning room, sitting room with the 3 bedrooms on 3 corners. There is a covered terrace at the front entrance which gets the evening sun. There is the back garden exit which is by one of the double bedrooms and another corner of the property which is locked off. This gives you a secluded area to dine and have your BBQ's but doesn't have much of a view. However should you wish they were more than happy for us to use the upstairs table to dine or sit in the lovely outdoor sitting room near the pool (however it is windy up there).

The dog Ted is a huge Mountain dog whom the boys fell in love wiht. Most of the garden is what one would term the front garden. There are electric gates so it feels very secure and a large garden for the boys to explore and play in. The drive runs up the right hand side of the property sloping up to some ponds, then then infinity pool, then the house. There is a view of the sea and also Sintra Palace. I would have felt anxious if my kids were young and couldn't swim properly (<5yr) but at 6, 8 and 9 it was perfect. Thanks so much.

Wonderfull Holiday in a fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful holiday in this beautiful apartment which is part of a large villa occupied by the owner Filippe and his family. The apartment is very well equiped and very spacious. It was so clean and fresh and a bottle of wine was waiting for us on arrival. The owner was a wonderful host and could not do enough to help us with advice and making sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen is small with no large oven but we did not need it. The pool was beautiful and kept very clean. It is surrounded by extensive gardens. The location is great, very near to the beach ( 15 minute walk) and not too far from the lovely restaurants in Cascais. The views of the Sintra mountians and sea are stunning.

Fillippe and his family made us feel very at home in their home and nothing was too much trouble. We even made very good friends with their large dog Ted.

The nearest supermarket is a five minute car ride and sells everything including fresh cakes and bread and fruit etc. The staff speak good English are very helpful.

A must is a visit to Sintra and Sintra Mountians - ask Fillippe he will give you directions.

I would recommend this apartment as a wonderful base to discover this beautiful area or for a relaxing pool side holiday.

Thank you Fillippe!!!

A pleasure to be in Guincho

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the huge rooms, the comfortable equipment and the generous garden. First it was a bit cold, because we had been the first guests in this year. Filipe and Mariza helped us fast. They were very friendly.

The view near the pool was amazing. The "puppy dog" Ben is big and very child-friendly. Our girls loved him and still miss him.

We went to the near beach of Guincho by foot and we visited Cascais many times and Lisboa and Sintra.

It was a relaxed holiday. Thank you very much.

A holiday to remember

  • 5 of 5

We didn't quit believe our eyes when the gate opened at our arrival. A small road led us through a spectacular garden up to the beautiful villa. A warm welcome of Felipe and his wife Mariza, who also were so kind to help us in many ways during our stay. The apartment, located underneath the house of the owners, was spotless, as spacious as you see on the pictures, very well equiped and very inviting. We felt at home immediately! There's a large central living space with an open kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all very nice furnished. Two outdoor spaces right by the apartment, both furnished with table and chairs; one nice to sit in the morning, the other to enjoy the evening sun. The pool is enormous and kept very clean. Next to the pool there's another terrace from where the view is extremely beautiful, you can even look as far as the Pena National Palace in Sintra. A small walk away from Guincho Beach and by car you can easily explore the whole area. Cascais is very near and Lisbon is just a 30 minute drive away. We had a splendid holiday in an apartment we surely would recommend to everyone! An ideal mix of sun, sea and culture!
