Beautiful Villa with private Pool and Views, just 5 minutes from the Beach

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
4 Bedrooms, Sleeps up to 9 people, large garden and private pool

‘Apple Beach Villa’ is a lovely and homely property within 4 minutes’ reach of the closest beach, ‘Praia das Maças’. It is set on well-maintained, totally private grounds, in the acclaimed World Heritage site of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

Surrounded by pine trees and looking out to beautiful views over Sintra Mountain, one cannot help but take a deep breath of fresh, untainted air and melt into the “Zen” mindset of the area.

The inside is cosy yet spacious, with the perfect mix between “private” and “social” areas. There are 4 bedrooms in total (4 double including 2 that can be set up as twins), to comfortably sleep 8 people (an extra fold-away bed can be set up for a 9th person, child). The kitchen is fully equipped, and walks out onto a large sheltered terrace with a big table and a barbecue corner, ideal for cheery summer lunches and gatherings! Round the other side of the house, the comfy lounge and elegant dining room also both walk out to yet another terrace, this one opening out to the south-facing garden with its oval-shaped 11m x 5m pool, equipped with all the necessary outdoor furniture to keep everyone happy! Yet another place to enjoy meals “al fresco” amongst family and friends! The two terraces, the lush garden and pool area, are where the fun times happen at ‘Apple Beach Villa’!

This is the perfect “summer house” for those who enjoy the outdoors, with all the comforts requested to totally relax!

Wonderful Greeting

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our very well behaved cat spent 8 nights in this wonderful villa.

We were met by the owner Maria, she had the open fire crackling, some red wine produced by the family, biscuits, pate & crackers waiting for us. Even a bottle of fizz in the fridge for the New Year.

Also which is very important this time of year she had heaters in the key rooms we were using, and even electric blanket on the bed.

The house is a real home, and there are lots of interesting items collected by the owners over the years which gives it that cosy feeling

The kitchen is so well equipped for large families it would be ideal, also a huge fridge freezer, extra cool fridge and a tumble dryer.

Thank you so much Maria and Rui we loved your home and will definately recommend.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lisbon at 35 Kilometres Nearest Train : Colares at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Praia da Macas at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

Praia das Maçãs (or “Apple Beach”) is just over 1km away. A little further on, you will find many more beautiful sandy beaches such as Praia Grande, Praia Pequena, Praia da Adraga, Praia da Ursa (elected one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe), as well as the picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar, perched on top of the Ocean. Guincho Beach is only a 15-minute drive from the house (on the other side of Sintra Hill), and Cascais is 20 minutes away by car.

The centre of the lovely village of Colares is 800m from the villa. There, you will find plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, art and antique galleries, as well as its very own local winery! In the most recent years, a more alternative vibe has started emerging, so if you’re into local markets with organic produces, permaculture workshops, yoga retreats, alternative healing centres and equestrian events, you will fit right into the community!

The enchanting historical town of Sintra (declared by UNESCO as World Heritage) with all its palaces and garden is a 15-minute drive away, and the stunning Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of the European continent, a 10-minute drive away.

The traditional tram (dating from early 1900s) runs every summer’s day between Sintra and Praia das Maçãs. This is definitely a fun experience to try out when staying at ‘Apple Beach Villa’!

The bustling capital of Lisbon is just over half an hour's drive away. Alternatively, if you want a more “local” journey, you can also hop onto the train at Sintra and arrive in the hub of Lisbon, “Rossio”, 30 minutes later!
