Ideal modern holiday home in Estoril

This modern house is even lovelier than the photos suggest. It is in a quiet, residential neighbourhood only 5-10 minutes drive from excellent shopping, golf, tennis and beaches. Many cultural and sightseeing attractions are also easily accessible, for example in Lisbon or Sintra. It is a hilly 15 minute walk from central Estoril (where there is a train station) so a car is recommended, although cheap and plentiful local taxis are a good alternative.
The house is bright, airy, and spotlessly clean. The two large sitting rooms and dining room are very comfortable and appealingly decorated with original art on the walls. The kitchen is modern and thoroughly well equipped and the four en-suite bathrooms are bright and very functional. The beds are good with high quality linens and towels. The garden around the pool provides a private and peaceful haven with lovely views. The fact that this is an eco-friendly house (solar panels, green roof and designed to be cooled by the prevailing breeze) is a bonus.
The hosts could not have done more to ensure a pleasant stay. They were attentive but not intrusive and provided lots of useful local information. Restaurant recommendations were unfailing! This venue is ideal for a family holiday (although very young children may be a concern because of the steep garden) or for adults on a golfing or sightseeing trip. We (family with teenagers) will certainly be returning.
