This large white villa sits in front of the stately pine trees that make up the Portuguese countryside. Once an old farmhouse, Villa Leonor is located in the coastal resort town of Cascais and makes for a sweet retreat in your piece of paradise.
Beautiful hills and trees create the surrounding environment of the villa as well as views of the ocean and a lovely nearby beach that is situated within walking distance.
The private pool comes with a small diving board for the more adventurous guests and sun lounges set up to take advantage of the sun. Inside, a large amount of natural light beams in from the surrounding glass doors onto a bright and contemporary living room with cosy furniture and an elegant coffee table.
The spacious apartment is perfect for looking out at the glorious nature that surrounds Villa Leonor from the comfort of your front room.
The villa’s spectacular first-floor balcony overlooks the magnificent coastline, beaches and horizon, and is equipped with enough seats to entertain and dine with a large party.
Guests looking to make use of the kitchen will not be disappointed as they will find more than enough space to cook up a delight with all of the modern appliances needed to do it. Up to twenty guests can be accommodated in this villa, as two of the bunk beds sleep three guests each and four additional temporary beds.
The kitchen is bright and spacious with windows looking out onto the garden. All seven bedrooms (2 of which are accessed through other bedrooms, making them perfect 'family' rooms!) are spacious yet homely with dim atmospheric lighting and plenty of storage space for clothes, gifts and souvenirs.
An excellent inside dining room is designed in an open plan style with the living room and has enough space for all twenty guests. Here, large white tables are brightened up with vivid orange, pink and yellow seats.
Villa Leonor has located only 10 minutes away from Guincho beach, a fantastic destination to catch a wave in the slightly choppy waters or to enjoy the weather and to eat at the cafe and restaurant.
Another great beach to visit is Ursa beach which boasts golden sand set against striking rock formations and a beautiful view. It is a brilliant place to view great scenic nature and reachable via a walk from the surrounding cliffs.
The resort town of Cascais is only 9km away from the villa and is frequented by tourists for its fantastic beaches, intriguing museums and historic sites. Visitors who wish to escape the bustle of the town’s centre can via the various scenic hiking routes surrounding Cascais. The city has a beautiful range of designer shops and fresh fish restaurants and vibrant bars in the evening.
Cascais has an excellent selection of beaches for visitors to choose from including Praia da Conceição, Praia da Duquesa and Praia da Poça. Casa das Histórias Paula Rego is a museum that stands out for its deep red pyramid-shaped exterior and is not too far from the centre of Cascais. The impressive museum showcases the work of British-Portuguese artist Paula Rego who is known for her paintings and prints.
The Cidadela Art District in Cascais is a buzzing cultural area well worth visiting. It has an outdoors exhibition centre, six art galleries and six open studios where artists can be watched while working. The district also holds a large hotel and a plethora of bars and restaurants.
