About Anna Klebnikov
The villa was built by my grandmother in 1960. I spent every summer at the Quinta Cabo da Roca as a child along with my three brothers. We enjoyed hiking, picnicking, riding, tennis, swimming, exploring Moorish castles, visiting museums, shopping, fairs and local events--which we all still enjoy to this day! This is a treasured family home that we visit several times per year and which we want to share with the discerning traveler. It is a unique and unbelievably beautiful location.
What makes this Villa unique
A caretaker (English speaking as well as Portuguese) living on the premises in a separate cottage ensures every comfort.

Excellent time. Very accommodating host. Would come back again.
Casa de Roca is a home run!
If you are going to the west coast of Portugal and you are in search of old world charm, with great views, beaches within walking distance, and a cute village just up the road then this house is for you. Casa de Roca is charming, sleeps 6 adults comfortably. We cooked several meals in so that we could enjoy the large terrace and sip wine watching the sun set over the light house. We all loved the house, the kitchen was stocked so cooking was easy, bathrooms were large and old fashion, oh and did I mention the sunsets....? We are looking forward to our return trip to Portugal and a stay in this charming house.
An undiscovered gem!
We rented this place to attend a family wedding at the Pongha Resort and it was perfect for 8 of us. While all of Portugal was experiencing a heat wave, this place kept cool because of the marine layer from the Atlantic. We were able to keep the windows open the entire time with only an occasional fly, mosquito, or moth coming inside. The place is HUGE with many rooms and big bedrooms. Upstairs has two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one with twin beds) that share a full bath. Downstairs has one bedroom with a queen bed and its own full bath, and one bedroom with twin beds, and an additional half bath. So it's only awkward when somebody in the last bedroom downstairs has to find a place to take a shower. And...you can only take one shower at a time or there is not water pressure...can be tricky when you're all trying to get ready for a wedding! But otherwise, the place was PERFECT. The town is close with a couple of nice restaurants. Lisbon is a nice day trip. Cascais and Sintra and close too. Lisbon airport is 45 minutes away. The kitchen has everything you need. Clothes washer and dryer worked perfectly. We even managed to make the old and somewhat worn BBQ work! I was disappointed we did not find any candles to purchase, as there are about 6 or 7 candelabras in the place that would have been fun to light. The beach is a short walk, but....the closest beach is a steep walk and not for the elderly or those without the right footwear (while we were there, somebody broke their leg and had to be medically evacuated via helicopter!). If you are there on the weekend, beware that if the weather is nice, many tourists AND locals will drive to the lighthouse and park all the way up to the house. They never blocked the driveway, but we had to back down as they were trying to leave. Also, if you are not good at driving a stick shift, the driveway can get tricky. Highly recommend this place for a family or large group!!!
Romantic old-world quinta
Perfect for a large family/group, the house has a true 'sense of place'. Staying there is a bit like your grandmother's house: beautiful, old, and fabulous. Everything was just as described. The general area is busy but the Quinta (it's really a small estate) is a haven from it all, yet close to Sintra, Lisbon & Cascais. The nearby village of Almocageme is a particular favourite, and the cafe in Malveira da Serra became 'our' capucchino spot. It's a way to experience Portugal without feeling you are a tourist; priceless.
My husband and I booked the villa with another couple. This place is AMAZING! The house is spacious and comfortable with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The view is not to be believed-- we spent our time sunning ourselves on the marble terraces, cooking gourmet meals, and having cocktails while watching the sun go down over the ocean. Stunning Sintra and Cascais and other sights are all within an easy driving distance. The caretaker gave lots of helpful advice and the owner was quick to respond to any questions we had. All in all, a perfect vacation. We will be back!
The Villa is a magical place with views that are hard to believe are real. Ursa beach right across from the villa is truly one of the most amazing beaches we have ever seen. We enjoyed all the recommendations provided by the host - including lovely restaurants right near the villa. Our stay there will be a special memory for ever!
