Estoril and Cascais are the two key seaside resorts on the Lisbon coast. Sintra, further inland, is also a great vacation spot, as well as being one of the major tourist destinations in Portugal. This delightful residence is situated between these three towns. Nestled in the heart of a huge estate, it offers its guests total peace and quiet, while remaining close to everything. Lisbon is only about 30 kilometers away: consequently it’s a perfect pied-à-terre for exploring both the city and its surrounding areas.
The outdoor spaces are one the villa’s greatest assets. Twenty hectares of tree-lined and lush green land: you’re going to love picking your fresh fruit in the orchard and your vegetables in the kitchen garden. Feel like getting some exercise? A tennis court is available just for you!
Two majestic stone elephants guard the entry to the courtyard in front of the house, a lovely place to dine in the warm summer evenings. The long veranda, sheltered or airy depending on the temperature, is a very pleasant spot to read, relax, or enjoy a drink.
The shared living areas, spacious and luminous, open wide onto the outdoors. The wood and bright colors create the warm and authentic atmosphere of a real family home. The bedrooms, decorated in a cameo of pastel tones, have ultra-comfortable beds and private bathrooms so that everyone feels at ease. Three of the bedrooms open directly onto the magnificent garden.

The villa is ideally located between Estoril, Sintra and Cascais, all of them celebrated resorts much appreciated by people from Lisbon and the Portuguese jet set, and just a short drive away.
The seaside resort of Estoril is only 5 km from the villa, and home to largest casino on the Iberian Peninsula. For nights on the town, shopping and restaurants, you might prefer it to its hotshot neighbor, Cascais, an adorable little fishing village which has become a highly fashionable vacation destination. Although the Estoril and Cascais beaches are small, well-protected and perfect for children, the famous “Praia do Guincho”, a 15 minute drive away, is an vast, wild and very “hip” beach where internationally renowned wind surfing and kite-surfing competitions take place.
As for Sintra, it’s a not to be missed cultural destination with its two palaces and sumptuous villas.
There are plenty of other things to do and see: Sesimbra, Ericeira and the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park are among the absolute musts. The Lisbon airport is only 27 km away.
