UNIQUE LOCATION! 2 CHARMING COTTAGES, NEAR BEACH AND GOLF, PANORAMIC VIEWS!

Cascais Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 Ideal for golf and surf

This exceptional property has a total area of 6000 sq. meters and is situated in Malveira da Serra, a peaceful place to live just above Cascais on a mountainside. It has a fabulous view of Cascais, the River Tejo and the Ocean.

The Casa dos Cavalos or 'Horses’ House' (sleeps 6) has a terrace and views. The living room is upstairs with a view to the ocean. Downstairs is the kitchen, a hall with 2 bedrooms and a small bathroom. Off the kitchen there is a bedroom with a bed on a podium with a shower room and WC.

The Casa dos Patos or 'Duck House' (sleeps 4) is on one level with an open space living/dining/kitchen area, two bedrooms and one bathroom. The living room has open doors to a small garden with ocean view.

We offer use of the swimming pool (10 x 5 m) with view of the ocean. The gardens are lush and natural. The perfect place to relax and enjoy life away from busy resorts yet only 10 minutes from Cascais and 30 minutes from Lisbon. Close to beaches among others the famous Guincho beach where surf championships are held in summer.

There are 5 golf courses 10 minutes drive away and the mountain is popular for hiking and mountain biking.

(More photos are available on request)

Local information: The village has a supermarket, a baker, a butcher a few good restaurants and a couple of bars. At Guincho beach, only a couple of minutes away, are several cafes, one of which does good evening animation. All the main fish and seafood restaurants are along the coast road, only a few minutes away. One of the best located bars of the area, is also a few minutes away.

Entertainment: Cascais, once a fishing village, has now become a bustling town with a wide choice of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops. There is still a small fishing port as well as a newly built marina.

Estoril, next to Cascais, is famous for its Formula 1 racing track and its Casino. Sintra has a wide range of cultural and historical interests and Lisbon, only half an hour away, will offer you all the joys of a European Capital.

One of the local attractions is the regular markets displayed in the area. In the Summer, you will be able to enjoy a wide range of Music, Dance and Handicraft Festivals.

Sports: Many sports can be enjoyed. Walking, surfing, horseback riding, rock-climbing, tennis, golfing, mountain biking and much more!...

Our guests can make special walks of discovery of the 'Sintra-Cascais Natural Park', specific cultural tours in the Lison and Sintra area, surfing courses (where you are assured to stand on the surf board on you first lesson!) etc.

This property has been in the family for 50 years and through the years we have improved and built on.

The beautiful hills of Sintra reminded my father of the mountains of Austria where we are originally from. Looking from Cascais where we first lived in the fifties, he always thought he wanted to have a property there. There were no roads and no houses and we used donkeys to go to Malveira da Serra.

No doubt : the views, sunrises and sunsets.

REVIEW IN DUTCH

  • 4 of 5
Na 9 dagen Algarve, een 7-tal dagen naar deze locatie. 7 dagen is gewoon te kort om alle bezienswaardigheden te bezoeken en daarom denken we dat we hier nog eens terug zullen komen naar dit prachtige gelegen huisje, met zijn rustieke uitstraling, en voorzien van alle benodigheden. Normaal gesproken keren we we niet vlug terug naar een locatie die we al een keer bezocht hebben....maar misschien komen we op dit principe terug en dat is een compliment voor de accomodatie + omgeving.

A GREAT FIND

  • 4 of 5
If you want a secluded villa that's clean and run by hospitable people then this is the villa for you.
We stayed in 'Casa del Patos' which has two bedrooms with comfortable beds and a large lounge kitchen diner area. We were surprised at how much crockery and cooking utensils/pots e.t.c there were as well as extra towels.
The hosts made us feel very welcome and provided extra beach towels and anything extra they could find to make our stay comfortable.
There are some lovely golf courses near by and a local supermarket but you'd need a car to get to the nearest amenities and towns for eating/exploring.
We thoroughly recommend this villa with shared pool and the complex is child-friendly. You have to like dogs as the owners have 4-5 dogs but they are very friendly.

CHARMING LOCATION, SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION

  • 4 of 5
We had a good time at this property. The location is quiet and secluded. The view from the terrace is lovely, across open countryside to the sea. The accommodation is on one floor, and includes a hallway, spacious bathroom, a main bedroom, with garden view, a large lounge/kitchen/diner and another bedroom if needed.
The owners' house is next door, and at least one other rental property lies at the back of this one.
The owners have several dogs, who are friendly. Access to the property would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues. The pool looks delightful in the photos, but was not all that inviting when we stayed - at Easter.It is a short drive, a mile or so to the village, and a further 3 to 4 miles to Cascais. It is a ten minute drive to the A5 motorway

A PERFECT WEEK / EEN HEERLIJKE WEEK

  • 5 of 5
Ik laat niet vaak recensies achter, maar ik wil op deze manier toch kwijt dat ik dit adres kan aanraden. Wij hebben er een week gezeten met zijn vieren, waarvan twee kinderen onder de 4. Het huis is ruim, schoon, ligt mooi en rustig, ligt gunstig tov Cascais (15 mins), Lissabon (30 mins) en Sintra (25 mins). De beheerders zijn vriendelijk en waren behulpzaam. Je hebt wel een auto nodig om er te komen.
I don't write reviews normally, however, i would like to say that i can recommend this address. We have been here for a week with four, of which two children below 4 years. The house is spacious, clean, quiet, well located towardsCascais (15 mins), Lissabon (30 mins) en Sintra (25 mins). The owners were friendly and helpful. You need a car to come here.
