Region:

The villa is situated 12 km from Sintra and 20 km from the cosmopolitan Cascais, with its marina, entertainment, shopping, beaches, restaurants, coffee shops, delightful esplanades by the sea, not to mention the buzz of a very active nightlife. Estoril, that has the biggest casino in Europe, is only 23 km away. 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 1 Km 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.

2) Oitavos

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.

4) Estoril

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.

6) Belas

Designed by Rocky Roquemore. Its eighteen holes extend over 6,128 metres for a Par 72.

Notes:
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.

Beautiful house with excellent location - if it were not for the crazy dogs of the neighbours

  • 3 of 5

The house is pretty much as it appears on the pictures. Large enough to house 10 people comfortably. The master bedroom upstairs is significantly better than the others, larger and with great views over Sintra. The pool is large and deep enough for swims and games - and and is really welcome after a long day in the August sun. So for the house itself, 5 star without hesitation. Location is great from my point of view: 10 min drive to the closest beaches and to Sintra, close enough to Cascais. You need a car to drive to the bakery in the morning, but this is for me only a minor discomfort. So, for location, i'd give 5 stars as well.

However - and this is really too bad considering what i've written above: the neighbourhood is FULL OF DOGS (some of them kept in cages in neighbours backyards) which have barked constantly as we were there. In the morning during breakfast, in the afternoon when we took a swim, in the evening when we were having drinks on the terrasse. One dog would start, followed by another, and then another, and so on for 30 minutes. The person from the agency responsible for the house did conceide that "yes, we know, there are dogs" but beyond that did not seem to see the need to do anything about it. Apparently the owners recently had a "noise fence" built behind the trees in the back, which if you ask me brought nothing at all. It is all really a shame, and it seriously disturbed our stay. Because on family holidays you want to enjoy a bit of piece and quiet. And unless some kind of conversation happens with the neighbours, this house will continue being a mediocre choice overall.
