Villa in the unique Protected Reserve, 5-min away to the beach and UNESCO Sintra

Distinctively located in the Protected Reserve of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, this modern, spacious and sophisticated villa is surrounded by a landscaped natural garden and has a magnificent view of the ocean, coastline and countryside.

The villa is ideal for families or groups of friends, who enjoy getaways, nature, beach, sports, namely golf and surf, in a private and relaxed ambiance.

This holiday home was architecturally designed and it is decorated with pieces of art and design in a contemporary and comfortable style. The villa has been chosen for cinema and photo shoots.

The magnificent sandy beaches and the salt-water swimming pool of Praia das Macas and Azenhas do Mar are only a 5-minute drive away, as well as Sintra and Colares (Unesco World Heritage) with numerous historical, architectural and cultural wonders to be visited.

The villa is 2-minute away from the nearest village with all the local facilities, such as supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, take-away and small shops, with local organic and fresh products.

MORE DETAILS OF THE PROPERTY

This villa is stylish, contemporary, airy, environmentally conscious and perfectly integrated with an awe-inspiring landscape. With its large-sized windows, the breathtaking exterior scenery becomes the canvas of the open-plan living rooms. The construction and design is superb, as well as the finishing with extensive use of modern ceramics, wood, parquet and marble flooring. Therefore the villa is efficiently warm in winter and cool in summer and there is an overwhelming feeling of space, luxury and comfort set within a very practical, clutter-free and relaxing environment.

The bespoke interiors are both creative and integrated with the exterior setting. A collection of pieces of art and design are displayed, and books in different languages are available. Modular L-shaped sofas and stylish armchairs are arranged to provide living areas for relaxing and family gatherings. Original fireplaces, wooden doors and parquet flooring lend a grand feeling to spacious, open-plan living rooms.

Space is the common theme throughout the villa. This two-floor holiday house features high ceilings and windows opening onto the poolside terraces and verandas, with magnificent views of the pool, the Atlantic Ocean and the rural countryside. The villa offers you a sophisticated setting by effortlessly combining space and light, and is tailored to tangibly reflect your need for comfort, style and the stunning views. The design in the ground floor links the kitchen, living room and the dining room to a large shaded poolside terrace that becomes the focus for activities, entertainment and relaxation.

The kitchen is part of an open-plan design that allows for a wonderful dining experience inside, in the living and dining area, or outside in the covered terrace, while watching the sunset in the Ocean or under the stars. This social space combines modernity, elegance and functionality, blending stainless steel countertops and marble flooring, being fully equipped with glass-and-wood cabinets with the indispensable accessories, linen and stainless steel appliances, such as a smooth surface 4-element electric cooktop, an oven, a large fridge/freezer, and a microwave, a dishwasher, a coffee machine, which can brew a large selection of tasty flavors of coffee and tea, and kitchen linen.

The driveway takes you directly to the entrance of the villa and the gate is easily activated with remote control. The villa also includes a large private 4-car parking spot.

Although the property has direct access to the residential peaceful street, there is no background traffic noise and the closest main road is sufficiently beyond earshot. The villa sits on a private lot, and the pool and garden are not visible from neighbor villas.

AREA DESCRIPTION

The villa is ideal for families or groups of friends who seek tranquility, as it makes a welcome retreat away from the busy everyday life. It is perfectly located for those who want to enjoy the beautiful beaches, unspoiled landscape, and for those who enjoy golf, water sports, hiking, mountain biking, and horse riding.

Sintra and the coast Atlantic area are deservedly one of Portugal’s greatest traveler magnets. The region also has a booming gastronomical and wine tasting culture, with dozens of restaurants and cafes tucked away.

You will find pristine and breathtaking beaches and fresh seawater pools in the vicinity of our villa, such as Praia das Macas, Azenhas do Mar, and Praia Grande, the internationally famous Portuguese capital for water sports (only 7 minutes away) and Cabo da Roca, the most western point in Europe (20 minutes away). The beautiful sandy shoreline of our area is a hotspot for surfers from many parts of the world. You can also find several professional surf schools in the nearby beaches of Praia das Macas and Praia Grande with equipment for rent. Ericeira, a world-class surf zone and the only World Surfing Reserve in Europe, is 25 minutes away. The biggest wave in history was ridden in Nazare, a mere hour away to the North (see the Guinness Book of World Records). For the above reasons, our region is probably the finest stretch of surfing destination in Europe.

Cascais and Estoril are only 20 minutes away. The atmospheric old town of Cascais displays a lively center, with its classical architecture, museums, shops, cafes, restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and a marvelous marina and promenade by the sea. Estoril is a major tourist destination with the grand Estoril Casino, the largest casino in Europe. The writer Ian Fleming was inspired to create his legendary hero, James Bond, based upon the intrigue and events that played out in the historic casino.

Portugal’s capital Lisbon is one of the world's most scenic cities and is only 35 kms away from the villa. This superb city has been named the fourth most beautiful city in the world by travel website Urban City Guides, which places it in the top 10 of the most alluring cities on the planet. Enjoy the relaxed nightlife, dine in restaurants with typical Portuguese food or a Michelin star, or visit the magnificent historical and cultural sites in Lisbon. Lisbon has the largest indoor aquarium in Europe, also considered the best aquarium in the world (see TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice). A trip to this unique city is definitely an unforgettable experience.

AND FINALLY…

We can arrange for a stocked fridge ready for your arrival, airport transfer, transportation and information on restaurants, cafes, and wine tasting, maid service, private surf lessons, and private Chef, and we are opened to your own personalized requests. Whenever guests have any serious or urgent request we are happy to assist at any time. We also have a gardener who attends to the garden and pool. Assistance is available at any reasonable time.

Great Location for golf and water sports!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing in every way. We are a family of 9 (4 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 children and 1 baby) and the property worked out very well for us. The photos don't show the real impact of the house and the surroundings.

The house was simply spectacular. The garden is well maintained and relaxing and the pool was big enough for lots of play. The coal bbq is very good and it is just in front of the pool. We also spent lots of time around the table tennis. The wifi was very reliable and also in some parts of the garden.

The kitchen is well equipped and the living rooms are well decorated, with plenty of sunlight, roomy and comfortable. The bedrooms are spectacular, three of them with wonderful view towards the ocean and the last one with direct access to the garden. All of them have in-suite bathroom.

There are 2 complete village supermarkets, a great bakery (Carlota) and butcher, within 2 minutes away. From the villa, we could reach Sintra and Praia das Macas very quickly (5 min away) with great fish restaurants. Sintra, is a UNESCO world heritage site with its castle, palaces and gardens set in lush vegetation and enjoying stunning views. Praia Grande, is internationally renowned for its surfing, and offers surf-schools. Praia das Macas and Praia Grande are great for surfing lessons.

Lisbon is only an easy 30 minutes away, making the charming and bustling capital a great day or night-out trip.

The villa is located within 20 minute-drive of Portugal's top golf courses (Penha longa, Quinta da Marinha, Oitavos, Quinta da Beloura, Estoril golf course). And as we clearly noticed, golf can be played every day in Portugal

Finally, Chloe was a wonderful host. She provided with everything we needed for a wonderful stay.

We definitely recommend this high-quality property.

Incredible place, terrific view, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was extremely roomy and spread out, so we did not "get in each other's way." We loved the decoration inside the house and the contemporary and the minimalistic style of the villa. The pictures don't show the real villa. It is so much better than the photos! The view is terrific!

The kitchen was wonderful, very well equipped and supplied and it was easy to cook in. There was a large dining table for everyone in the patio ad another one inside. The maid service was possible, so the house stayed impeccable, whenever we needed it! We asked for a private Chef and the owners made it happen. We just loved the food!

All the bedrooms were spacious, with a beautiful light and had an in-suite bathroom with shower

The children loved the bunk bed room. There were lots of games and puzzles for them, plus the trampoline an the ping pong table.

Azenhas do Mar is nearby (5 minutes) and it is beautiful. We had plenty of activities at the house, so we did not have to go to the beach, which kept the children happy. The villa has the option of beach towels, which we asked for and these were gadly supplied.

The owners are extremely nice and helpful with suggestions and even transport.

We do a one-week family vacation every year, since our family is all spread out, and this was one of the best we have ever had.

We give it outstanding rating to this villa!

Perfect spot. Top property

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described in the ad, however the photos are not as good as the reality. We were amazed with the facilities.

The areas were new, well-maintained, clean, roomy, beautiful, quiet, secluded and private.Immaculate inside and out. A contemporary decoration but without being too clinical.

I travel a lot for work so my expectations are high. I must say that this property exceeded my best expectations. Top quality of the facilities, and great attention and care from the owners. We felt easily at home. The villa was located in a quiet road with a unique view of the ocean and the countryside.

I booked this house because it was close enough to Praia Grande. I am a big fan of surf and and I was not let down. Surf lessons are available and Chloe was really helpful with booking these for me.

A minus is that car hire is needed but this is true for anywhere around Lisbon. This is a relatively minor point as most people would be hiring a car on this type of holiday.

The quality of food is great and the prices are not as high as in Lisbon. We hired a Chef for cooking our dinner in one special night (our anniversary) and the food was amazing. Again, Chloe arranged everything for us having a romantic and unforgettable.

Chloe couldn't have been more helpful and made the stay all the more pleasant. Could not recommend highly enough!

Great property, unique place, top rating

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay in this villa.

The location is fantastic, the garden is secluded. Lots of entertainment for the kids. The pool is big enough for 2 families.

The weather was hot in september. The beaches are just aorund the corner. The food in the region is sublime. We strongly recommend Agua e Sal in Azenhas do Mar. Sintra is magical!

We stayed long hours just enjoying the villa and the surroundings, lots of hiking and surfing. Really a great time!

The owners were extremely avilable and nice and helped us with the transportation.

I can only say that I strongly recommend this place for holidays. We will be comming back next year!
