The uninterrupted views are over the Atlantic and to the Lighthouse on Europe's most westerly point. 'The Cottage' is in a studio type layout with a well equipped Kitchen counter and an en suite shower/toilette room. It also has its own secluded roof terrace with clear views down to the ocean and the Sintra hills. The unspoiled Village of Azoia is at the foot of the Historic Sintra hills and offers exciting opportunities for hiking, exploring castles, palaces and churches. Surfers beaches, numerous golf clubs, Estoril with its Casino, Cascais and the world heritage town of Sintra are within easy reach. Lisbon, with its International Airport is only 25 miles away.

Azoia, our Village, is on the Atlantic side of the Sintra hills, about 1mile from Cabo da Roca, Europe's most westerly point. Although still a peasant farming village, there are a number of excellent Restaurants famous for their Seafood, several Cafes and Bars and a very basic General Store. Local produce is sold several times a week and there are busy Market Stalls at weekends. The Sintra Hills have an abundance of Castles, Monasteries and Palaces to explore and wonderful Walks have surprises around every corner. Trains go from Sintra or Cascais into Lisbon where you can take a Tram around the 18th Century centre and then up to the old Arab Quarter and on to St. Georges Castle. For Night Life, the newly developed Docks are not to be missed and so are the traditional 'Fado' places in the Bairo Alto.
Other Activities: we have small but very active Art School and everyone is welcome to join the day classes.
Golf: The village is well situated for Golfers. The nearest course is 'Penha Longa', 'Estoril' and 'Quinta da Marinha' are about 20 minutes drive.
