Aldeia do Meco and Sesimbra: The Villa is located in Aiana de Cima, close to the small Portuguese village of Aldeia do Meco in the Costa Azul.
Aldeia do Meco is only a short drive from central Lisbon or Sesimbra town centre. Situated to the south of Lisbon, it is close to the Serra da Arrabida Natural Park. The beach at Praia do Meco is considered to be the Pearl of the Costa Azul with its wide sandy beaches and clear surf.
Aldeia do Meco and its neighboring villages offer a good selection of cafes, restaurants and bars attracting a very mixed and trendy crowd. On the beach itself there is a bar and restaurant, which, in the summer season, offers private sun loungers with a full waiter service. The area is very popular with TV and film producers. The local villages also offer a good selection of shops selling local produce and groceries.
Sesimbra is an ancient fishing Port and is known as having the freshest fish in Portugal. It is a lively town by night with the streets lined with amazing restaurants
You will be spoilt for choice and during a two week visit you would easily eat at a different restaurant for every meal. There is a good selection of bars and disco’s along the promenade, but Sesimbra remains very family orientated. By day, there is plenty to explore including the 13th century Castle, which offers both history and some amazing views over the town below.
Close to Sesimbra is Cabo do Espichel, with its deserted Monastery here it feels like the end of the world as the windswept cliffs plunge into the deep blue Atlantic Ocean several hundred feet below.
Azeitão can be found not far from Sesimbra and has a number of grand houses once owned by Portuguese noble men, Azeitão is also the centre of the wine route. The roads are lined with vineyards and adega’s where you can sample fine quality wines and cheeses.
