Luxury Villa With Heated Pool. Up To 10 People.

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Villa in the centre of Arrabida’s natural park.

QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO is a holiday home that has been welcoming guest since 1997. Recent renovation occurred in 2013.

Immersed in Arrábida’s Natural Park; the calm, secluded and relaxing natural atmosphere and breath taking views of QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO, make it the ideal place to retreat to and recharge.

Poolside family moments followed by a glass of wine on the terrace at sunset; or indulging over a barbecue meal accompanied by the idyllic scenery, herbal fragrances and natural sounds; is all part of the holiday experience to which is added the comfort of a first class luxury house, for your perfect vacation.

Moreover, QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO’s strategic location invites guests to visit its surrounding, on a trip through the regions natural heritage and history.

As guardians of the Natural Park, Setúbal with the Fortress of São Filipe, Palmela and Sesimbra with their castles and Cape Espichel with its lighthouse and Sanctuary were built on its limits. In the park’s core among other surprising elements stands a Franciscan convent built over centuries on the slope overlooking the sea, as an isolated refuge for meditation.

QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO’s location in a coastal region gives easy access to a large variety of beaches. All from long stretches of golden sand and calm sea to rocky beaches and impressive waves for surfing. Furthermore Arrábida’s conditions excel for paragliding, scuba diving and hiking, making them popular activities.

The region’s fertility makes for great agriculture and cattle breeding. Resulting in high quality regional products as cheeses and wines.

Lastly, taking a day off to get to know the incredible light, sights and mysteries of Lisbon, one of the world nicest cities is time well spent.

With about 250m2 QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO is built on two floors, accommodating four rooms and up to 10 people with top quality comfort.

- A spacious living room on the top floor, with beautiful tiled panels from the XVIIIth century and cherished décor, articulates the house. It includes a dinning and TV nook and a staggering view through a glass façade.

- On the bottom floor an even larger living room with direct access to the garden and pool accommodates a sitting corner, a snooker table and a foosball table.

- The well-equipped and modern kitchen, present a view of the mountains while cooking.

QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO’s four rooms can host 10 guests. The rooms have been refurbished in 2013 to heighten the vacation experience starting from the comfort of the sleeping accommodations, the private space where one starts the day and retrieves at night (and for the occasional nap!). With top quality detailing, each of the rooms has its own special and distinctive character; all have a direct window to the garden allowing each of them to embody the smells and views of the surrounding.

On the top floor:

- A suite with a full private bathroom and closet area. The bed is aligned with the window and all “mess” is invisible from the bed accentuating purity and relaxation of being in bed, which in complemented by the presence of the exterior in the foreground.

- A spacious double room in which the contrast between the modernity and colour of the new intervention highlight the pre-existing dark wood detailed furniture. All to enhance the comfort of laying in bed.

On the bottom floor:

- A double room with its bed facing the window, which opens directly onto the natural park creates an astonishing laying in bed experience. Image waking up with the gentle breeze and light entering the room and looking up to the open landscape of the natural park. You won’t want to leave!

- Finnally a room that was designed to flexibly alternate between being a double room, a twin room or a two bunkbed ward. This room will make your childrens day!

In addition to the suite’s full private bathroom, Quinta de Santo António has 3 other full bathrooms, relatively close to each room so that, in fact it feels as if each room has its own bathroom.

The garden, is an extension of the Natural Park itself with its autochthonous vegetation and wildlife that will come and go according to the season and time of the day.

Around the house and pool there are herbs, like rosemary, lavender, time and bay among others, some of which can be used for cooking. Swings have also been installed.

Beside the kitchen is a fresh, naturally shaded area with a large ancient stone table and benches, served by a barbeque.

Just a few steps below lays the heated pool with its charming XVIII century fountain.

This is our Quinta de Santo António - The exquisite privilege of a lifetime of clean fresh air, close to Lisbon. The house where we always dreamt of waking up; spending our days and resting at nightfall.

However QUINTA DE SANTO ANTÓNIO isn’t just the house and views but rather all the visits, tour and activities its strategic location places at the disposal of our guests.

It is this ability to be both a place of serenity and relaxation and the starting point of exciting tours on the discovery of the surrounding wonders that made the owner’s family fall in love with it.

A short drive from the house and you can;

- have your feet in the sand or on the putting green.

There are several different types of beaches in the region, from long golden sand beaches to pebbles and rocks, with calm or rough sea. Its up to you!

There are 5 internationally renowned golf courses in the region.

- be visiting Castles, fortresses, villas, Palaces, sanctuaries and lighthouses.

- be walking on an ancient Roman road or in Roman fish salting factory.

- paragliding of the top of Arrábida; scuba diving in its crystalline waters or hiking, horse ridding or cycling its numerous trails.

- bird watching, fishing or dolphin seeking in the Sado estuary.

All this available at your wish!

At a longer distance but much worthwhile for a daytrip:

- Lisbon with its magical light and monuments.

- The area of Cascais-Sintra with its bucolic feel, botanical diversity and over the top romantic architecture.

- The Alentejo with its gently undulating landscape and continuous meadows.

Lastly, your stay at Quinta de Santo António will not be complete without indulging the sweet sin of gluttony. Besides its fish and seafood, the region is also known for being a land of great wines, cheeses and sweets.

The region includes two areas of distinctive gastronomic traditions: The coastal part, dominated by fish dishes, and the interior, where you can taste the typical cuisine of Alentejo.

We promise you will end your vacations fully re-established!

Great house, amazing location, fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

Where should I start? Everything was great from the beginning to the end. The house's owners were friendly and helpful well above average and beyond expectations. The house itself is a gem, very well maintained, very clean and offers great privacy. The location is a dream, with an amazing view over the natural park. We stayed there in the second half of October, and the pool heating was very well worth it and allowed us to enjoy the water for hours.

All in all: highly recommended! (And we'll be back...)

une super maison de vacances !

  • 4 of 5

la quinta de sto antonio est très bien placée, avec une vue spectaculaire sur la serra de arrabida, la maison est très agréable, très propre, très bien équipée, l'accueil est très sympa, je la recommande avec plaisir

le seul petit hic à mes yeux est la taille des lits, que j'ai trouvés trop étroits pour 2 personnes (140 cm), mais c'est très personnel! le coin piscine est génial, la piscine très bien, le terrain superbe

on y a passé de très belles vacances

Fabulous Week

  • 4 of 5

My family has a wonderful time at the villa, it is a little in the middle of nowhere and took some finding.

The Supermarket is only a short 5 minute drive for all your supply's and the beach about 15 minutes.

Great swimming pool, BBQ area and the kids loved the games room. I would highly recommend the villa if your looking for beautiful scenery and escape from everything.

Idyllic retreat, beautiful views and location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in an amazing setting with stunning views across the valley, tidy, clean and very well maintained. The property is very welcoming and homely, comfortable and very well equipped. It was quite cool in the evenings but the open fire was great at keeping us all comfortable whilst relaxing when the sun went in. During the day the winds kept the temperatures cool but go dressed prepared for all weathers at Easter. The villa is well positioned for trips to Sebutal, Sesimbra and Sintra all of which are very worthwhile places to visit. Sebutal has an amazing market and Sesimbra a smashing little fish restaurant called Isais.

We have stayed in many villas in Cyprus, Portugal and Majorca and Santo Antonio is one of the most beautiful spots we have stayed for peace and rest with the family. Both children under 12 enjoyed the heated pool and exploring the garden, collecting the lemons and oranges fresh for the trees. The whole area is un-spoilt by mass tourism which we enjoyed but may not be busy enough for some. we ate mostly at the villa and found everything we needed.

We have already recommended to friends and hope to visit again on another trip to Portugal.

Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine schöne Woche in diesem wundervollen Haus verlebt. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die Küche hat alles was man braucht, es gibt eine tolle überdachte Terasse mit einem super Ausblick und der große Garten mit großzügigem Pool laden zum Verweilen ein. Der Charme dieses Anwesens mit vielen liebevollen Details ist sehr besonders und sticht bei einem Ferienhaus schon heraus. Die Abgeschiedenheit und Ruhe haben uns sehr gefallen. In den ort fährt man nur ein paar Minuten. Dort kann man im Supermarkt einkaufen, es gibt zwei Weingüter mit Verkauf und auch ein paar Cafés und Lokale. Von Azeitao aus ist man aber auch schnell an der Atlantikküste oder für einen Tagesausflug in Lissabon. Der Vermieter hat uns persönlich empfangen, war sehr hilfsbereit bei allen Fragen und hat uns sogar die nähere Umgebung gezeigt. Wir kommen gern wieder!
