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).
