Villa Era Portugal


Property Description

This stunning luxury villa is situated just 45 minutes from the picturesque capital of Lisbon. Here you and your guests will enjoy stylish modern living while soaking up wonderful sea views, knowing the refreshing lure of the Ocean is just 100m from your door. The vibrant Praia Grande offers a wide range of amenities, from traditional restaurants serving succulent seafood, to seafront bars and many shops. And the surf in this area is incredibly popular due to consistently good waves.

Step inside this beautiful villa and appreciate its lovely spacious rooms and delightful contemporary design. With fresh neutral décor throughout, stylish furniture and unique design elements, guests will love to relax and unwind in this special abode. The ground floor welcomes you with a large open-plan kitchen-living area, drenched in natural light through banks of glass doors, allowing you to appreciate those all-important see views from any aspect. There are great spaces to entertain in, from a large sumptuous seating area to a large wooden dining table, and the ultra-modern kitchen means that cooking up a Portuguese feast will be a breeze.

The 5 bedrooms at Villa Era are all elegant in design, providing bright simple spaces to retreat to after a long day exploring the fantastic local area. Two doubles can be found on the ground floor with access out onto the stunning garden area. Three glorious suites reside on the first floor, with stylish en-suite bathrooms, magnificent sea views, and sunny balconies superb for enjoying your morning coffee or lapping up the last rays of evening sunshine.

The exterior space here encompasses a shaded terrace area adjacent to the villa and a delightful expanse of manicured lawn surrounded by blossoming local flora, extending out to the wild and rugged coastline. A wonderfully large outdoor pool awaits those seeking a refreshing dip and sun loungers and shaded seating provide the perfect spots to relax as you gaze out over the spectacular scenery that surrounds. And an outdoor dining area and BBQ ensure the balmy evenings are enjoyed to their full, as you entertain your guests until the stars begin to appear over the luminous sea.
Just 45 minutes from the Portuguese capital, this wonderful villa can be found on the wild and beautiful west coast, on the edge of the Serra de Sintra national park, just minutes from Cabo do Roca, the most westerly point of mainland Europe. Situated only 100m from the golden sands of Praia Grande and its surrounding bars and restaurants you will have plenty to keep you and your family occupied.

The largest beach of the Cascais-Sintra coastline, Praia Grande is the perfect stretch of sand to enjoy spectacular scenery with wonderfully imposing cliffs and impressive waves, ideal for surfers. You’ll even find fossilized dinosaur footprints which appear to walk straight up the near vertical cliff face. Although there are a great variety of amenities here you might also want to head a few minutes north to the picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar, with its whitewashed houses beautifully spilling down the jagged cliff. Cameras at the ready! Or head 5km inland to the popular Summer resort of Colares, set in the foothills of the Sintra Mountains where fabulous vineyards abound.

For an idyllic day-trip head 20km east to beautiful Sintra, considered not only one of the wonders of Portugal, but indeed of Europe. A UNESCO world heritage site, this former Royal town nestles in a stretch of hills surrounded by plain, estuary or Ocean creating an idyllic Paradise. Stunning buildings will impress, from the baroque and rococo Quelez Palance and the Palacio de Pena built on the remains of a Hieronymite monastery, to the spectacular Castelo dos Mouros, a ruinous Moorish castle set amidst the lush forests of the Serra De Sintra offering spectacular views over the region.

Just 45 minutes from the enchanting city of Lisbon, you are ideally located to experience one of Europe’s most captivating and picturesque capitals. One of the world's greatest natural harbours has attracted many different civilizations over time, which is now mirrored in its beautiful architecture and culture. Hillsides covered in tumbledown houses and a mix of baroque and neoclassical buildings, including fabulous cathedrals and grand palaces, make up Lisbon’s attractive skyline. Enjoy delicious cuisine, including incredible seafood like bacalhau, and sardinhas, and spend evenings sipping port wine on terraces adorned with bougainvillea, along the cobblestones of the historic Alfama district. Just perfect.
