Ulgueira Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This amazing property is set between Azoia and 'Cabo da Roca', the most western point of the European continent. It is set on 2,7 hectares of land and has a completely unique position, over-looking the ocean and magnificent view of the Cascais-Sintra natural park. Cascais and Sintra are only about 15 by car, the wild 'Praia da Ursa', classified of of the most stunning in the world, is only 2min by car (and then a walk down to the beach). Famous Guincho Beach, well known by surfers and wind-surfers is only about 10 to 15min drive. Palacio da Pena, Castelo do Mouros and the Sintra heritage is within easy reach. The charming village of Azoia will offer you a wide range of restaurants, bars, art galleries and handicraft shops. This stunning region was chosen by many local and international artists to live.

The location is absolutely stunning, unique and completely private. This is the 'ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience'... just on the mainland!

This amazing property has everything one needs for a totally private holiday, 'away from it all' and close from the stars! It is set in a completely private and secluded environment with stunning views of the ocean and surrounding nature.

It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 lounge/dining area with kitchenette, several terraces and 'quiet corners' all around the property. There is a large fridge-freezer and plenty of kitchen space if you want to 'hide away' from civilisation for a few days! The property is 2,7 hectares, with a gorgeous natural 20 meters long pool, a barbecue, plenty of terraces and even an orchard! The village has many cafes and restaurants and one of the most trendy local bars is only a couple of minutes drive from the house!

Beaches such as Guincho, Ursa, Adraga and Praia Grande are within 3 to 15 min drive from the house. Many beautiful walks can also be enjoyed right outside the property.

Beautiful Star of Azoiain stunning Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Although its a bit out of the way a bus runs every hour from a stop no more than five minutes walk away. Stunning beaches nearby. The property itself is comfortable and clean if a little basic but the scenery and tranquillity make up for it. If you want tranquillity you've got it, if you want restaurants and bars go to Cascais, 15 minutes by taxi 25 minutes by bus. Managers were very welcoming and helpful. easily contactable. The locals are very friendly and helpful. Public transport was excellent. 20 minutes by train to Lisbon from Cascais.

A fantastic holiday location.

HERMOSAS VISTAS EN UN LUGAR INCREIBLE

  • 5 of 5

Decidimos pasar nuestra Semana Santa en Portugal , y encontramos este sueño de casa en Azoia, impresionantes vistas, inmejorable lugar, la Cabaña es perfecta para pasar unos días en familia , nuestro pequeño de dos años estaba encantado con su casita nueva , corrió por todo su terreno. La casa tiene todas las comodidades que necesitas, y lo mejor levantarte con esas vistas, ćerca de los lugares más turísticos en coche , y a un paso de cabo da roca, descansamos y disfrutamos un montón esos días y nuestra perrita también que siempre viaja con nosotros, así que volveremos seguro. Gracias

Great location but overall disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The setting is very beautiful and it wouldn't take much to make this really a great location. The agency taking care of the house was always very helpful and friendly. Nevertheless I would not recommend this for such a pricing. We staid in the house for a week and paid enough to expect some small but cozy cabin with at least some personality or comfort. Unfortunately what we encountered was lacking any personal touch and came with a lot of damaged, unhygienic and simply not nice stuff. Starting from a broken table you cannot set aside a glass, rusty nails coming out of loose planks on the terrace, 3 out 5 heat plates not working, no furniture but just the cheapest shelf from the DIY-store, broken drawers, broken handles on the pans, cables everywhere, over to the insght that the house is really very small. I could go on but I am already feeling like a grumpy old man... If you do not wish to be enveloped in the shower curtain or just stand in the bathroom with two person skip this. Please do not get me wrong, I haven't been complaing on any finca I have rent over the last years but this was way below my expections and definitely does not justify the prize. I am just disappointed because it would be easy to get this on the right level and I invested a lot of many and especially time on this. Both is rare for me and I would have chosen differently.

Perfect for honeymoon!!

  • 5 of 5

my partner and i stayed here for a week on honeymoon and fell in-love with it! everything we read up on was exact. (we landed quite late monday and got a little lost, ending up travelling the opposite direction which took us three hours to find it!) - we unfortunately didn't print a map pre travel. Suggested!

perfect location near lovely fish restaurants with pleasent staff! truly amazing view to look out at, most evenings we travelled into cascais town to hundreds of restaurants and plenty of beaches, but our favourite evenings were spent at the cabin looking out the the ocean, reading books and drinking red wine on the hammock! pure bliss

also excellent communication from the staff who look after the place, will definatley be back with a bigger group! thank you very much for a peaceful and very unique experience, idillic for honeymoon

Great view and beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Cosy cabin, nice garden and beautiful views over the coast and the Atlantic. Close to nature. Had surfing lessons and visited Sintra, which is a beautiful city with for example the Castelo dos Mouros.
