Located in an enchanting pine forest, Villa Domitila is a large holiday villa that stands above the cliffs of the Caparica Coast. Submerged in the glorious nature of Portugal and overlooking the sublime coastline, this holiday home has all that is needed for a tranquil getaway.
The property is divided into two houses and has an immensely large garden with steps leading down to the pool. A ladder leads into the pool water for easy access, and a diving board is fitted at the end for an exciting swimming experience. The pool area also possesses sun lounges for catching those sizzling sun rays.
The garden is home to a plethora of plants and trees as well as quiet green areas with small benches that are shaded by towering trees for days that you spend blissfully relaxing. The garden is completed by an outside dining table and chairs, right in the middle of the greenery.
Both living rooms are open plan with the dining rooms and boast sliding window doors across the front that provide fantastic natural light and access to the garden. The rooms also have cosy sofas and a warming fireplace, perfect for entertaining nights in.
In one of the dining rooms, elegant gold lights hang from the pristine wooden ceiling. The place is stylishly lit by candlelight and contains a large and beautiful shiny wooden cabinet with glass windows revealing an exciting array of ornaments.
The bedrooms are grand, spacious and decorated with tasteful furniture with some of them leading out onto the garden. Guests will enjoy getting ready for their day and unwinding in the evenings with the marble tiled bathrooms providing an immersive luxury experience.
The villa has a wonderfully bright and vibrant design throughout and a games room on the first floor complete with a pool table and table football.
Villa Domitila is situated only 2km away from Praia do Castelo, which translates to ‘Castle beach’ due to its long-gone ancient watchtower that used to protect the coast from the attacks of Barbary pirates during the 16th century.
Some remains of the watchtower can be found near the beach’s entrance. The beach is known for its picturesque golden sand that sits beneath the scenic cliffs and is a great spot for snorkelling, swimming and sun-bathing.
Costa da Caparica is a long stretch of beaches and lies only 6km away from the villa. You will have no difficulties in finding a beach that best suits your desires and needs along this coastline, so why not try them all! The town of Caparica is also well worth a visit to take in the fantastic scenery.
It was once a fishing village and today, vibrant fishing boats and people selling their fresh catch of the day can still be seen daily. The town is home to a 16th century Capuchin monastery, established in 1560 which houses a group of small buildings that possess tiny stone rooms with cork-lined doors and ceilings. It is a truly enchanting and unique experience that reveals the lives of monks in times gone by.
Costa da Caparica is also a haven for fabulous bars and restaurants, with some opening way into the early hours of the morning. Arriba Club is located on the beachfront and is known for its delicious toasties and baguettes served throughout lunch and dinner, and the well-priced cocktails served in the evening.
The Waikiki is open until 4.00 a.m. and is a stunning bar and restaurant that effortlessly transforms from daytime to night-time. The 23-year-old venue has outside seating on a wooden deck on the promenade as well as a resident DJ and king size beds available to rent over the sand.
