Overview

Praia das Macas Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, pool, close to the ocean

For those looking for a private villa, completely secluded from the hustle and bustle of town and yet only a minute drive from the typical and arty village of Colares, this is the place to be!

This refined Portuguese home is tastefully decorated, with unique pieces from all over the world. The modern kitchen is fully equipped, the bathrooms are kitted with top quality fittings, and Cable TV, Internet Connection as well as pool and garden maintenance are all included.

The house holds a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in main house, as well as another bedroom and bathroom in the annex by the pool. It also comprises a lounge with a dining area, and a second, charming indoor/outdoor lounge-dining-room that can either be closed off by its large sliding windows or totally opened up, as if a continuation of the garden itself, ideal for ‘al fresco’ meals on summer days and evenings.

The flawless and well maintained garden offers a sense of inner peace and serenity, as well as many 'hidden corners' to 'escape' or meditate. It even has its own 'real size doll's house' for your little ones to play in!

The 5-by-11-metre pool is tastefully designed and, when you lie on one of the designer’s sun beds, you will feel the exclusivity of this place! You can also sit under the pergola by the pool, cool off on one of the cosy sofas in the pool room, read, draw, relax or play one of the various games available.

This is the ideal place for whom wants to enjoy the local culture, surrounded by beauty and nature, right next to one of the most stunning coast lines in Europe. Once you have stayed at the Artist's Retreat, you simply will not want to leave!

This is the ultimate paradise, the ideal retreat for whom wishes to totally relax in a comfortable, beautiful and peaceful environment!

Map

Colares is a sweet, typical Portuguese village, located between Azoia and the enchanting town of Sintra, reinvested in by artists, antique dealers, local markets, friendly cafes, as well as having its very own winery! In the last few years, a more “alternative” vibe has started emerging, where local markets with organic produces are held regularly, as well as permaculture workshops, equestrian events, yoga retreats, alternative healing centres, and many cultural visits all being available nearby!

The beautiful beaches of Praia das Maçãs and Praia Grande are just 3 minutes’ drive away, and the historical town of Sintra (declared by UNESCO as World Heritage) with all its palaces and gardens is less than 10 minutes’ drive away. The picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar, perched on top of the ocean, is just 5 minutes’ drive from the property and Cabo da Roca, the most Western point of the European continent, a 10-minute drive away.

Surfer's paradise Ericeira is within 20 minutes reach by car.

Cascais is about 20 minutes away and the bustling capital of Lisbon just over half an hour's drive. 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!
