ARCHITECT DESIGNED FABULOUS MODERN SEA-VIEW VILLA WITH POOL CLOSE 1.5KM TO BEACH

Azóia Villa Rental Photos and Description

Stay in style in this wonderful estate -perfectly integrated in the surroundings

Most of the house is on the ground floor, with spaces flowing seamlessly into each other; the large double height living room with seating for 12 makes the most of the magical light of the area and has sliding doors on one side opening onto a terrace with view to the private lake and then the beautiful ocean 1km away and on the other side onto a small sheltered patio with a lemon tree. For colder nights, the heating and fireplace provide the comfort required for long memorable evenings gazing at the stars in comfort, or long chats. The dining and seating areas just flow into each other, and everyone who wants a quiet moment will find his private corner. The dining room opens to a big outdoor patio of 70m2 with a barbecue.

Beaches: 'Praia da Foz', 1.5km away, is a fine sand beach, after which the estate was named; it is a beautiful unspoilt beach surrounded by cliffs, prolonged by a vast rocky platform used by fishermen. Further, you can find the beach “Praia das Bicas”, popular for surfing. To the north you'll discover the largest and main beach, “Praia do Meco”, with three miles of white sand and beautiful cliffs. This is the most uninhibited and naturist beach in Portugal. Praia do Meco is so long that if you walk long enough you will always find an uncrowded spot. On the base of Arrábida mountain you can find various beaches of crystalline water and green hills. Most of these are small coves, with its fine white sand, tranquil waters and special microclimate.

Nautical sports and Arrabida National Park: Surfing is popular at “Praia das Bicas” close by. For diving, Portinho de Arrabida beach has of the most interesting diving in Portugal with its grottos and abundant marine life. Sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and rowing can all be practice in the safe bay.

The mountains are ideal for walks, and organized excursions can be arranged with the local nature tour companies. In the National Park, mountain biking, fauna tours, and bird watching are organised. Orienteering, cycling tours, riding and aerial sports are available and provide new experiences for beginners and experienced alike.

Gastronomy and wine tasting: In a country that has such an extensive coastline, it is not surprising that the sea should be one of the main sources of its cuisine. In the many restaurants of Meco, Sesimbra or Setubal, you can find all sorts of the most fresh and delicious grilled fish and also the best seafood, such as clams, mussels or shrimps. Portugal`s climate and soil, its excellent varieties of traditional grapes and the wisdom and long experience of its vine-growers have all helped to make Portuguese wines amongst the most appreciated in the world. The region of Setúbal, which has given its name to a sweet fortified wine, made from muscadet grape, also produces robust reds and light white wines.

Beautiful home with breathtaking views - Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent five days in Casa da Foz for our honeymoon. It is a beautifully designed and decorated home located in a small coastal town just south of Lisbon. The home is not far from the ocean and you can reach it via a dirt road about 1 mile off the main road. It is completely private; has a beautiful pool and lawn area; is a 20 minute walk from a small but beautiful beach; has an amazing terrace; and the sunsets are breathtaking. The kitchen is very well equipped, in case you are interested in going to a market and trying the local fare at home. I highly recommend this place if you are interested in relaxing by the pool and the beach or exploring the expansive property.

If you are looking for more action there is a tiny town called Meco (about a 5 minute drive from the house) and it has some great seaside restaurants in addition to a larger beach. During the summer this is a very happening spot. Cabo Espichel, with some amazing views, is also a short drive up the road. A large nature park, parc naturel de l'Arrábida, with beautiful beaches and hikes, is also a short drive away.

The owner Virgilio and the architect Joao, who designed the home, are both a pleasure to deal with. They make you feel quickly at home and are more than happy to help you in any way you need. We highly recommend Casa da Foz and hope you enjoy a relaxing stay there as much as we did!

An experience that you will never forget

  • 5 of 5
To spend some days at CASA DO LAGO is an experience that you will never forget. The beauty of its architecture, the perfect harmony with the environment, the exquisite decoration – you will be astonished how the days go by so fast! The good thing is that you will treasure those moments for ever in the memory of the good things of life!

For two years running we have spent the week between Christmas and New Year at Casa da Foz with two fantastic experiences! In the first year the weather was rainy and cold and the afternoons and evenings were comfortable in front of the fireplace. In the second year, the sun beamed daily through the interior spaces of the beautiful windows allowing a greater communion with the natural surroundings.

The welcome was warm, and the house and surroundings are unique.

Un endroit formidable

  • 5 of 5
Je ne sais pas pourquoi je n’ai pas pris le temps de dire combien j’ai été satisfait de mon séjour au Portugal en avril 2012.

Nous avons passé une semaine vraiment très agréable à deux pas de Cabo Espichel. Non loin de Lisbonne -environ 30 minutes de route en basse saison-, vous aurez le plaisir de pouvoir visiter la capitale portugaise et ses alentours à volonté ou au contraire de vous éloigner suffisamment pour pouvoir profiter pleinement du calme et de la nature préservée offert dans la propriété.

Nous avons été accueillis très chaleureusement par le propriétaire et l’architecte de la maison (qui parlent très bien français). Ces derniers nous ont fait découvrir la propriété et ses environs pour nous assurer le meilleur séjour possible. Nous avons donc bénéficié d’informations très utiles qui nous ont permises de profiter de notre semaine au maximum.

Malgré une météo aléatoire pendant notre séjour, nous avons bénéficié de la superbe vue sur l’océan, la baie de Cascais et la nature environnante. La maison offre des prestations hautes de gamme tout en étant assez simples. Elle est moderne et offre pour autant le sentiment de toucher au «typiquement» portugais grâce à certains matériaux et à la décoration. Elle convient donc particulièrement aux gens appréciant un certain confort et les maisons insolites, à l’architecture et la décoration travaillées. Elle nous à plus car nous étions un groupe d’amis ayant l’habitude de séjourner dans des lieux hors du commun, sans ressentir le besoin ni l’envie de retrouver des prestations luxueuses qui auraient rendues cette maison identique à la plupart des maisons modernes proposées de nos jours.
Cet endroit est donc à privilégier pour son cadre et l’architecture de la maison. Il est parfait pour faire des promenades dans la nature environnante (chemins autour de la maison jusqu’à l’océan), visiter les sites touristiques et les villages aux alentours. La praia das bicas (plage de diamants) et son Bar do Peixe vous offrirons par exemple un couché de soleil fabuleux le temps d’un cocktail. Vous pourrez aussi, comme nous l‘avons fait, profiter de l’endroit pour vous reposer, bronzer, pour vous cuisiner des spécialités portugaises ou simplement faire un barbecue.

Si vous connaissez déjà bien Lisbonne et les grandes villes du Portugal, il s’agit d’un «spot» qui complètera a merveille votre expérience du Portugal. Je recommande vivement cette destination.

Estadia gravada na memória das coisas boas da vida

  • 5 of 5
Já há dois anos que passamos a semana entre o Natal e o Ano Novo na Casa da Foz. Com duas experiências diferentes a nenhuma ficámos indiferentes! No primeiro ano o tempo esteve chuvoso e frio e as tardes e serões foram confortavelmente passados à lareira. No segundo ano, o sol irradiou diariamente os espaços interiores através das belíssimas janelas permitindo uma comunhão ainda maior com a natureza envolvente.

A beleza da arquitectura, a envolvência com o exterior, o requinte da decoração - tudo contribui para que os dias passem depressa demais mas fiquem para sempre gravados nas memórias das coisas boas da vida!

The property is located near the Natural Park of Arrábida, a paradise of Mediterranean vegetation near the Atlantic Ocean. With a pleasant weather all year round, this is a well known region of lovers of nature and peaceful holidays. The special microclimate of this area, which incites the coexistence of diverse and rare species of fauna and flora, allows one to fully enjoy nature.

History and the passing of time left in this region a remarkable trail of medieval castles, renascence palaces, splendid manors, churches, chapels, convents and sanctuary that allow a meeting with the past. The castles of Sesimbra, Palmela and Setúbal were, in the middle age, part of the defence line of the Setúbal peninsula. These monumental fortresses are worthy of your visit. Isolated in the middle of cape Espichel, rises the monumental pilgrimage sanctuary of Nossa Senhora do Cabo built in the 17th century & classified as national heritage. You can reach the sandy beach “Praia da Foz”, 1.5km in 20 min.

Golf: Portugal is a paradise where the golfer can play almost every day of the year. Quinta do Peru Golf is a short drive away and other courses are nearby.
