Terrugem Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 4 people, large fireplace, garden, marble bathtub
Casa das Figueiras
is a restored farmers cottage and is located within Cascais-Sintra Natural Reserve Park. It was built by the end of the 18th century out of stone and wood. Its original features have been preserved. A stay in the house enables you to feel and live the simple life of the last 200 years with some of the comforts of our times.
The bedrooms are simple and comfortable and the bathroom with its hand carved marble bath a luxury contrast to be enjoyed.
You will also be able to use the garden around the house with pine, fig, palm, fruit and other kinds of trees, bushes and herbs and relax under the grape vine with view to the little village of São João das Lampas and the sea at the end of the valley leading to praia da Samarra, a little beach used as harbour by the romans. It can be reached by car or by foot after a small hike.
The over 200 year old still full functioning stone oven with the big fireplace, was also formerly used by the local community to bake the weekly bread. If you enjoy food, I would be delighted to bake you bread and cook a meal as it was done 200 years ago.
In a perimeter of 40Km there are so many things to see and do that it is impossible to name them all. You may go for a day sailing trip along the Estoril coast, hike by the sea or the mountains, visit Sintra and Lisbon or simply relax in the garden or at the fireplace.
This house is specially suited for the ones who are looking forward to enjoy something different.... the simple life.
