About the property

Excellent house up 8 people with two living rooms and balcony with sea view

The house is located in the centre of the small village Aldeia do Meco, between the characteristic wild and perfumed landscape of stone pines, sand dunes and crawling vegetation, and only 5 minutes distance from the amazing beach, also called Meco. It is a perfect place for vacations or for peaceful weekends, as it provides all the comfort and facilities you need to enjoy your well-deserved rest, only 40km from Lisbon.

Apart from having a garden, swimming pool, barbecue and parking, the house has 170m2 of interior area and has been redecorated in 2014, offering now a fresh and youthful atmosphere, assuring the feeling of sand and sea, so you have a complete summer experience, hosting up to 10 people.

To that purpose, the house provides:

- Large and comfortable living room that opens onto the swimming pool, perfect for sunny days and sunset cocktails;

- Small living-room with a fireplace and a tv;

- Fully equipped kitchen;

- 2 fully equipped bathrooms;

- 1 double room with wardrobe and private balcony;

- 1 twin room (2 single bed);

- Unique double room with a private terrace overlooking the sea and the starry night sky...

- For rentals of above 6 guests, we have available a sofa with double bed and 4 sofas with single beds, placed in both living-rooms;

The interior spaces are complemented with the exterior areas:

- Swimming pool with 4x8m, right in front of the living room, with removable covering;

- Garden nearby the swimming-pool;

- Small garden in the entrance;

- Private parking;

- Barbecue area;

- Balcony and terrace

Nevertheless, CASA DO MECO is not exclusively a beach destination, but also an exceptional strategic location for a wide range of activities, places to discover and also to visit world-wide recognised monuments.

Start by exploring the imposing Espichel Cape and its Santuary.

Take a pleasant trip to fishing-village of Sesimbra, and visit its medieval castle.

You can also visit Azeitão villages, Setúbal and Palmela, each one with its castles and historical mood.

Be sure to visit the wonderful Arrábida Natural Park, with its calm water beaches and the must-visit Franciscan Convent built in the middle hillside, overlooking the sea, as an isolated retreat for meditation.

We strongly recommended a day-trip into Lisbon, it is worth the visit, with its gorgeous light and charming monuments. Further northwest the area of Cascais-Sintra and its bucolic atmosphere, biological diversity and exquisite Romantic architecture may also demand a visit.

A beautiful Villa in a great location - Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Pedro, the owner is wonderful! My daughter left her beloved toy dog behind and Pedro went to great lengths (and expense) to ensure that he was returned safe and sound to us in England. Nothing was too much trouble.

The villa is gorgeous - immaculate throughout and extremely comfortable. My three children (aged 16, 16 and 10) and I were very happy there for the week. The pool has a cover, so was warm enough for the children to play in at ten o'clock at night, and their bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. My room in the attic did get very hot, but I slept with the little door open and it was no problem. Having my own little roof terrace to escape to was a luxury that I made the most of.

The town itself is very friendly. The local shop sells fresh bread and pastries every morning, and the café at the end of the road does great coffee and cake too (he is also called Pedro, and is just as friendly.) There are also restaurants to choose from and a great place that does take-away spit roasted chicken (you can also choose to eat in if you prefer).

When we return to Portugal, we will definitely be staying here again! I can't recommend it enough (it's a straight-forward drive into Lisbon from here, and we went in three times during our stay.)

Beautiful area. Great local friendly people. The house is great for eating out there are around 7 restaurants on your doorstep.

The pool is really good with a nice bbq.

Local shop is 1 min walk away with a great butchers and fishmonger 5 min walk away.

The beach is close by and is massive! Great waves! First time in Portugal and loved it. Lisbon is also close by for a day out.

Private home with pool

  • 5 of 5

I was in Casa do Meco with my husband and a couple of friends plus two kids.

The house was perfect for two families! Me and my husband slept on the cosy attic (very small but fun!) and our friends stayed on the first floor with the kids.

The house is very simple but it has some nice details of modern decoration, and it has everything you need.

We spent most of the time on the second living-room (the one that opens to the garden), enjoying the sun on the private garden with some great barbecues. Poll was also great.

The house is very close from the beach, but it was a little windy on October so we didn't spend much time there. Instead we took the car and visit Arrabida, Sesimbra and Setubal.

The overall experience was very good!

verry good place to go to.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty or room for the eight of us. The pool which was under cover was warm and nice to use any time of day or night. It is close to a number of restaurants which were all good. within 50 meters of a cash machine. Close to the beach. Had a good stay.

Meco beach
Car: necessary

The neighbouring Meco beach is a wide sand beach, with an extraordinary beauty and internationally recognized for being one of the first naturist beaches in Portugal, being known for some people as the “Mecca of Naturalism”. Today it is best known by its youthful, cool and relaxed atmosphere. Increasable trendy.

For a ‘break’, or for those who prefer calmer beaches Albufeira Lagoon with its calm water and large dunes is a great alternative (just 15min away), we truly suggest spending a day there. In addition, you can also spend some time in the Paradise-like beaches of Serra da Arrábida.

If on the other hand, you are looking to do some sport, or nature and leisure activities you are in a strategic location as the region has a wide and diversified offer of open air experiences: from waking tours through the area, horse riding, mountain biking, bird watching and nautical sports, such as surf, windsurf, kitesurf, scuba diving, fishing or even golf – you can also find 5 internationally recognised golf courses nearby.

Finally, for music and festival loving ‘youngsters’, Super Bock Super Rock summer festival takes place nearby Meco. Its one of the biggest summer festival in Portugal and brings for 3 days 80.000 people to the area.
