About the property

Villa located 1.5km from the beach of Magoito, can accommodate up to 10 people.

This romantic and spacious villa, located just 1.5 km from Magoito beach, is ideal for families of 8 (up to a maximum of 10), who seek a peaceful retreat to escape the fast-paced routine of everyday life.

The villa is part of a quiet 2-hectare property, consisting of a large pinewood area, a beautiful garden with lawns and flower beds, fruit trees, palm trees and with rails leading guests to beautiful countryside, very close to other villages and picturesque beaches.

The rustic villa is built in a privileged location, with romantic landscapes: in front of the Sintra Mountains and its romantic Pena Palace, and at its rear, a beautiful sea view, where guests can enjoy and restore energy to watch a wonderful sunset at the sea, among the pines of the estate.

The villa is prepared to host a family of 8 (although it can accommodate in full comfort, 10 people). It consists of 4 bedrooms (2 of which are ensuite), 3 bathrooms and a toilet, a living room, a large kitchen and a spacious lounge. It has Wifi (4G rooter with 7.5GB month).

It is ready to receive children and babies, having the necessary equipment to sleep, eat and play.

In the garage, guests can find all the outdoor furniture needed to relax, contemplate the beautiful scenery and outdoor dining, with an additional fridge and a barbecue.

Adults and children are challenged for great walks, eating outdoors, playing and resting in the outdoor areas enjoying the shade of the pine forest.

The farmhouse is idyllic for those looking for a mixed country holiday and a beach getaway.

As soon as you enter the property and close the gates, you will find yourself in your own little private paradise, listening only to the sound of the birds, in a peaceful retreat, away from the stresses of everyday life.

In the surroundings of the house:

Close to very picturesque villages such as Fontanelas, Arneiro dos Marinheiros and Magoito, where you will find all the necessary services (restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, pharmacies, etc); the farmhouse is located 15 km from Sintra, 30 km from Lisbon, 20 km from Ericeira and Mafra and 15 km from Cascais and Estoril, constituting a base house to start discovering the iconic towns and villages of Portugal.

The villa is 1.5 km from the Magoito beach and 2 km from several other beaches (Praia Grande, Praia Pequena, Praia das Maçãs, Praia da Aguda, Azenhas do Mar, Praia da Adraga, Samarra, Vigia, S. Julião, Lizandro, Ericeira etc ...).

In the surrounding area guests will find tennis and golf courses (more than 16 golf courses 30 minutes away), surfing and windsurfing schools and riding facilities as well as a teaching farm that organizes donkey rides (for the delights of the kids ... right near the property !!!).

At Praia das Maçãs and Praia Grande there are 2 large public swimming pools with entertainment activities for children that are worth a visit.

We can also give information about groups of walks so that guests can quietly enjoy the rails and walking paths on the cliffs of the beaches and through the fields. The villa also offers the possibility of cycling.

The weather is very mild.

Car use is strongly advised given the location of the property.

The hosts live only 30 minutes away from the villa, being available to solve any problems that may arise!

About The Owner


I'm Rita.

My sister Ana and I are your hosts.

We grew up in Magoito and have a large number of friends there. We are in love with the beach, where our daughters love to spend their summer time, and with our property, "Quinta de São Bento", which we have inherited from our father, Mr. Bento, as he was known by friends and neighbours. He has built the house and planted most of the trees and flowers you can find in the property.

We have repainted, redecorated and regardened the house for your own delight and comfort.

We aim to welcome nice families, that care for the place, and make ourselves available to assist you in any way we can in order to provide you with an unforgetable stay and to hopefully welcome you back!!

We live in the outskirts of Lisbon at merely 30 minutes distance from the property.

Please count on us to help you settle in this marvellous place!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Kind regards,

Rita and Ana

Pure meditation...

  • 5 of 5

It was a rare case when the reality exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the house for the period from mid of December 2016 till mid of January 2017 with three kids. The house has everything you need for the family vacation. The land plot is fantastic. With a beautiful garden and a large territory kids can play outside the house and you don’t need to be worry for their safeness.

I have to admit that Sintra is a tricky place. It has a variety of microclimates areas. You need to be careful with choosing where to stay to avoid unpleasant weather. We were lucky and almost all days we stayed where sunny with clear view of the Atlantic Ocean and Pena Palace.

Another benefit of this house is its unique location. You are very close to the landmarks of the Portugal Riviera, naming Cabo de Roca (the westernmost extent of mainland Eurasian continent), Azenhas do Mar (a small fisherman village with meditational views; it has one of the best fish restaurants in this part of the cost), Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaliera, Palace of Mafra and many many other places to visit…

Rita, the owner of the house, is charming and wonderful lady.

Owner's Response: Dear Hermann, It was a pleasure welcoming such a beautiful family. I am very happy that you liked the house and so much and that the children have enjoyed it as well. It is very rewarding for us (me and my sister) to see other families inspired by their stay at the property as much as we are. We try our best to provide a comfortable and relaxing stay for our guests and a playful one for the children. I do hope you remember the days spent here with a bright smile on your face. Thank you so much for caring for the house! Hope to welcome you again some day! Kind regards, Rita

A November break in the sun

  • 5 of 5

On arrival I was met by the owner, Rita, and welcomed with open arms. The house was deceptively large, with five doubles, three bathrooms, large kitchen and huge sitting room. The grounds were lovely. The area was beautiful and we spent each day driving to different places, Lisbon, Cascais, Sintra, fabulous beaches to watch surfers. Each recommended restaurant was fabulous. The food in each was spot on, and the service was welcoming and authentic. It is definitely somewhere I will go again. Well done Rita and sister. The house was immaculate and I would recommend this property and the area to everyone.

We are very glad you and your family enjoyed your stay so much and hope the memories of the house, of the beaches, the food, Sintra and Portugal, are cherished for a long time. We would be delighted to welcome you back! Kind regards, Rita

sehr gut ausgestattetes Haus in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben als Gruppe hier Anfang Oktober 10 Tage verbracht. Das Haus ist in einem sehr guten Zustand. Die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Es gibt ein großes Wohnzimmer mit Kamin, mehreren Couchen und einer Essecke. Es gibt eine umlaufende Terrasse mit Sitzgelegenheiten auf 3 Seiten. So findet man immer ein sonniges und windstilles Plätzchen. Im Keller sind noch etliche Sonnenliegen, Strandstühle, Tische, Spiele und 2 Fahrräder. Wir haben nichts vermisst.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich, war bei allen Fragen behilflich und bei Ankunft war der Kühlschrank für das erste Frühstück bestückt.

Der nächste Bäcker ist ca. 2 km entfernt. Einen Lidl gibt es in 10km.

Wir können das Haus für einen ruhigen Urlaub in der Nähe von Lissabon sehr empfehlen.
