Lisbon, the capital, with its monuments, restaurants and its typical music, Fado, is only 35 min. away and Guincho, with its surrounding natural park, is highly recommended for beach and sport holidays. Along this coast the choice of beaches is endless. Guincho is famous for water sport activities, and white sandy family beaches, are only a 15/ 20 minutes drive away. The bus stop is just 800 m away from the villa (connecting Sintra to Cascais) and the railway station is 12 km away.
For golfers, there are 6 golf courses, 20 minutes away:
1) Quinta da Marinha
Set amongst beautiful pine trees and stretching down to Guincho beach, it has some of the most majestic sceneries in Portugal. Its hole number 13, a Par 4 descending to the sea, is a picture postcard of Portuguese golf.
It's the 1st Golf Course in Europe and the 2nd in the World to become a Certified Signature Sanctuary - Gold.
3) Penha Longa
Enjoys championship characteristics, an excellent level of maintenance and beautiful panoramic views over the Sintra mountain range.
One of the oldest and best-known golf courses in Portugal. Many champions - including Max Faulkner and Seve Ballesteros - have walked the fairways of this course.
5) Quinta da Beloura
Fine views over the Sintra mountain range and a course surrounded by trees provide a very pleasurable game of golf.
Designed by Rocky Roquemore. Its eighteen holes extend over 6,128 metres for a Par 72.
About the Owner
Activity and Interests
Cascais, Estoril and Sintra (patrimony of UNESCO) offer some of the best bathing conditions and water-sports in Portugal, depending on the kind of beach you choose.
Along this beautiful coastal area of Europe, the choice of beaches is endless and some of them are famous worldwide for their water sports activities.
Less than 5 km away, you have beach bars and small restaurants specialized in grilled fish, some of them with wonderful terraces to enjoy the sunset.
A bigger or lower exposition to the Atlantic ocean means more or less crowded beaches and different water-sports. We recommend the coast along Estoril for sheltered beaches and from Cascais/Guincho until Praia das Maçãs for more wild conditions. Inside Quinta da Marinha resort you have access to an 18-hole championship golf course (by Robert Trent Jones) and just beside you have the Oitavos golf course (by Arthur Hills), an 18-hole course included in the top 100 courses of the world. In September 2011 Oitavos Dunes jumped 20 places up the list to be considered the 68th best course in the world and the second best in mainland Europe. Inside the resort you have also 10 tennis courts (two synthetic grass & eight in clay), 3 padel courts, 3 squash/racketball courts, sauna, gym, indoor swimming pool, restaurants and the Marinha Equestrian Centre, considered one of the largest and most well equipped of the Iberian Peninsula.
About 3 km away is the Marina of Cascais where there is a wide range of beach bars that after night falls turn into clubs or have live music.
Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, a romantic and cultural city, known for its amazing light, is located over seven hills and bathed by the Tagus River. Its history goes back before Roman colonization and you can still find traces of the different civilizations and cultures that graced this land.
The picturesque and medieval streets of Alfama, Bairro Alto and Chiado, where one can hear the Fado at night, a unique synthesis of old and new, is a must. Splendid monuments, castles and astonishing sights “miradouros” keep you company every step of the way.
There is a large range of activities to do and places to see in Lisbon, like the Oceanario, Europe’s biggest aquarium, alone worth the visit for its perfect picture of ocean wild life. This city also offers an abundance of distinguished restaurants, fantastic shopping and great nightlife.
To the west of the city lies mysterious Sintra, a verdant cultural landscape - declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage site with its mystical forests crowned with castles, palaces and grand mansions.
Taking a ride on a horse-pulled carriage and gazing at the marvelous manor-houses, as one drives up to Pena Palace, is the perfect experience that epitomises this magical place. It has a vast and endless variety of exotic trees, subtropical plants and shrubs that were imported in the 19th Century, offering, in addition, spectacular views across the coast line.
Sunny Cascais, a chic seaside resort is also located a mere 15 km west of Lisbon. This lively town boasts a number of sandy beaches, excellent restaurants and championship golf courses, as well as a world-class marina.
Near Cascais is the famous beach Guincho, known for its high waves that attract windsurfers from all around the world.
The next town to the east of Cascais is the resort town of Estoril with its popular Casino and great nightlife.
Heading south across the Tagus river, Costa da Caparica, Serra da Arrábida and picturesque villages such as Sesimbra and Setubal are also worth a visit for their natural splendor.
For golf and beach lovers, don't miss Aroeira with 350 hectares golf estate located on a natural reserve and surrounded by a stretch of 30 km of unspoiled sandy beaches backed up by dunes and ochre cliffs, considered the best in Lisbon region.
In terms of gastronomy the Southern part of Lisbon is an area of the most freshly caught fish with an abundance of sea food. Cheese made from ewe's milk in Azeitão and wines produced in the region of Palmela, internationally renowned for their high quality.
Excellent wines are always on the menu and those with a sweet tooth can indulge in wonderful handmade pastries including the delectable “pastéis de Belém”.
