The design in the ground floor links the kitchen, living room and the dining room to a large shaded poolside terrace that becomes the focus for activities, entertainment and relaxation.

The kitchen is part of an open-plan design that allows for a wonderful dining experience inside, in the living and dining area, or outside in the covered terrace, while watching the sunset in the Ocean or under the stars. This social space combines modernity, elegance and functionality, blending stainless steel countertops and marble flooring, being fully equipped with glass-and-wood cabinets with the indispensable accessories, linen and stainless steel appliances, such as a smooth surface 4-element electric cooktop, an oven, a large fridge/freezer, and a microwave, a dishwasher, a coffee machine, which can brew a large selection of tasty flavors of coffee and tea, and kitchen linen.

The driveway takes you directly to the entrance of the villa and the gate is easily activated with remote control. The villa also includes a large private 4-car parking spot.

Although the property has direct access to the residential peaceful street, there is no background traffic noise and the closest main road is sufficiently beyond earshot. The villa sits on a private lot, and the pool and garden are not visible from neighbor villas.

AREA DESCRIPTION

The villa is ideal for families or groups of friends who seek tranquility, as it makes a welcome retreat away from the busy everyday life. It is perfectly located for those who want to enjoy the beautiful beaches, unspoiled landscape, and for those who enjoy golf, water sports, hiking, mountain biking, and horse riding.

Sintra and the coast Atlantic area are deservedly one of Portugal’s greatest traveler magnets. The region also has a booming gastronomical and wine tasting culture, with dozens of restaurants and cafes tucked away.

You will find pristine and breathtaking beaches and fresh seawater pools in the vicinity of our villa, such as Praia das Macas, Azenhas do Mar, and Praia Grande, the internationally famous Portuguese capital for water sports (only 7 minutes away) and Cabo da Roca, the most western point in Europe (20 minutes away). The beautiful sandy shoreline of our area is a hotspot for surfers from many parts of the world. You can also find several professional surf schools in the nearby beaches of Praia das Macas and Praia Grande with equipment for rent. Ericeira, a world-class surf zone and the only World Surfing Reserve in Europe, is 25 minutes away. The biggest wave in history was ridden in Nazare, a mere hour away to the North (see the Guinness Book of World Records). For the above reasons, our region is probably the finest stretch of surfing destination in Europe.

Cascais and Estoril are only 20 minutes away. The atmospheric old town of Cascais displays a lively center, with its classical architecture, museums, shops, cafes, restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and a marvelous marina and promenade by the sea. Estoril is a major tourist destination with the grand Estoril Casino, the largest casino in Europe. The writer Ian Fleming was inspired to create his legendary hero, James Bond, based upon the intrigue and events that played out in the historic casino.

Portugal’s capital Lisbon is one of the world's most scenic cities and is only 35 kms away from the villa. This superb city has been named the fourth most beautiful city in the world by travel website Urban City Guides, which places it in the top 10 of the most alluring cities on the planet. Enjoy the relaxed nightlife, dine in restaurants with typical Portuguese food or a Michelin star, or visit the magnificent historical and cultural sites in Lisbon. Lisbon has the largest indoor aquarium in Europe, also considered the best aquarium in the world (see TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice). A trip to this unique city is definitely an unforgettable experience.

AND FINALLY…

We can arrange for a stocked fridge ready for your arrival, airport transfer, transportation and information on restaurants, cafes, and wine tasting, maid service, private surf lessons, and private Chef, and we are opened to your own personalized requests. Whenever guests have any serious or urgent request we are happy to assist at any time. We also have a gardener who attends to the garden and pool. Assistance is available at any reasonable time.

Top villa, high quality! Simply great!

  • 5 of 5

High-quality villa which if anything is not done justice by the photos and description., with all the facilities you could ask for, even for the needs of our group which consisted of 6 adults and 3 young kids. We especially enjoyed the entertainment room with all the games. The waer of the pool was very pleasant.

Exceeded our expectations, lots of entertainment!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was well furnished and fully-equipped (photos may sometimes not live up to reality). In this case, what we hadn’t expected for was that the experience staying in this villa completely exceeded our expectations.

All the bedrooms were large, roomy, pristine and airy. The master beds were really comfortable. All the areas were new, clean, beautiful, airy, quiet and private.

The children loved the pool and the many games, puzzles and books to keep them entertained too in the games/entertainment room. The table tennis area and the trampoline were great! The grounds were fenced, safe and secure.

The location of the property is perfect, quiet and charming, but also close to the beautiful beaches and all the action of Sintra, Cascais and Estoril.

Sintra is just magical! We loved the area.

The hosts were super helpful before we arrived and during all our stay.

We asked for a list of essentials to be left for us on arrival and everything was there as promised.

Thank you for this wonderful week. We are recommending you to all our friends!

A unique villa with a breath-taking ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families counting up to 8 people staying over a 3-week period in June, and had an excellent time at this magnificent contemporary villa. The house was spotless and luxurious.

The villa had two beautiful and airy living spaces indoors and outdoors that we could enjoy together and then enough separate private spaces for each family to have some time away from the larger group.

We had nice big dinners on the terrace or in the living room. The kitchen is well equipped for such a large group and there was also a coal BBQ which we used a lot! The property is amazing, with a nice clean ecologic pool, and great entertainment for the kids, with plenty of games, a trampoline and a table tennis.

You need a car to get around, with Sintra 5 mins away and wonderful beaches within 5-10 mins (Praia das Macas, Praia Grande, Adraga, Magoito). We strongly recommend the restaurant Água e Sal in Azenhas do Mar. Great seafood!

A truly one-of-a-kind estate in a spectacular location conveniently located with Sintra and the beaches only a few minutes away.

Our hosts were incredible with all the good suggestions. Many thanks to Chloe and Constantin for an amazing time and a great deal!

Great Location for golf and water sports!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing in every way. We are a family of 9 (4 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 children and 1 baby) and the property worked out very well for us. The photos don't show the real impact of the house and the surroundings.

The house was simply spectacular. The garden is well maintained and relaxing and the pool was big enough for lots of play. The coal bbq is very good and it is just in front of the pool. We also spent lots of time around the table tennis. The wifi was very reliable and also in some parts of the garden.

The kitchen is well equipped and the living rooms are well decorated, with plenty of sunlight, roomy and comfortable. The bedrooms are spectacular, three of them with wonderful view towards the ocean and the last one with direct access to the garden. All of them have in-suite bathroom.

There are 2 complete village supermarkets, a great bakery (Carlota) and butcher, within 2 minutes away. From the villa, we could reach Sintra and Praia das Macas very quickly (5 min away) with great fish restaurants. Sintra, is a UNESCO world heritage site with its castle, palaces and gardens set in lush vegetation and enjoying stunning views. Praia Grande, is internationally renowned for its surfing, and offers surf-schools. Praia das Macas and Praia Grande are great for surfing lessons.

Lisbon is only an easy 30 minutes away, making the charming and bustling capital a great day or night-out trip.

The villa is located within 20 minute-drive of Portugal's top golf courses (Penha longa, Quinta da Marinha, Oitavos, Quinta da Beloura, Estoril golf course). And as we clearly noticed, golf can be played every day in Portugal

Finally, Chloe was a wonderful host. She provided with everything we needed for a wonderful stay.

We definitely recommend this high-quality property.

Incredible place, terrific view, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was extremely roomy and spread out, so we did not "get in each other's way." We loved the decoration inside the house and the contemporary and the minimalistic style of the villa. The pictures don't show the real villa. It is so much better than the photos! The view is terrific!

The kitchen was wonderful, very well equipped and supplied and it was easy to cook in. There was a large dining table for everyone in the patio ad another one inside. The maid service was possible, so the house stayed impeccable, whenever we needed it! We asked for a private Chef and the owners made it happen. We just loved the food!

All the bedrooms were spacious, with a beautiful light and had an in-suite bathroom with shower

The children loved the bunk bed room. There were lots of games and puzzles for them, plus the trampoline an the ping pong table.

Azenhas do Mar is nearby (5 minutes) and it is beautiful. We had plenty of activities at the house, so we did not have to go to the beach, which kept the children happy. The villa has the option of beach towels, which we asked for and these were gadly supplied.

The owners are extremely nice and helpful with suggestions and even transport.

We do a one-week family vacation every year, since our family is all spread out, and this was one of the best we have ever had.

We give it outstanding rating to this villa!
