As the villa is located close to two golf courses, you have access to their facilities on your doorstep. At Quinta da Marinha is an 18-hole championship golf course and another at Oitavos. Here there is a range of other sporting facilities, as well as several restaurants.
Less than 10 minutes away by car is Guincho Beach, one of the most popular beaches in this area of Portugal. Its golden sands lie at the base of the Sintra hills that form part of a natural park.
Soak up the beautiful scenery and views across the sea as you relax on the sand and the children play and then head up to the cliff tops for a coastal stroll.
Once a humble fishing village, Cascais is now a town with plenty to offer visitors and it’s just a 10-minute drive from the villa. It has its stretches of beach and a marina, as well as a charming old town.
Here you will find squares full of historical buildings and plenty of family-run restaurants to stop in at for lunch after all the sightseeing.
Museums and mansions are vital features of the town, with the Centro Cultural de Cascais, Museu Condes de Castro Guimaraes and Casa de Santa Maria being particularly attractive to visit.
Sintra is a beautiful town that nestles within the foothills of the Sintra Mountains, and its landscapes could be taken straight from the pages of a fairy tale. It’s just under 25 minutes north of the villa by car.
Majestic mansions soar from the pine-covered hills, with Pena Palace being a must-visit site. This Romanticist palace is beautiful inside and out, and it offers some truly breathtaking views of the surrounding area.
