Just 4km from Praia Fonte da Telha beach, the peaceful Villa Nilda is located on the Aroeira Golf Resort, around 30 minutes’ drive from Lisbon. Accommodating up to eight guests in four stylish bedrooms, this villa also offers the use of a hot tub and its private swimming pool.
Villa Nilda features a large and attractive terrace with covered area, ideal for dining at any time of day. The extensive gardens include a children’s playground with swings and a basketball hoop, and there are a brick barbecue and garden furniture. You will also be able to borrow bicycles to get around the resort and local area – the property has four.
As well as two golf courses, the Aroeira Golf Resort has four tennis courts, bars and restaurants and a shopping centre. There’s also another swimming pool, this time with a tropical theme, and a spa and wellness centre. Areas of pine forest also offer the perfect setting for relaxing walks among nature.
On the ground floor, the villa features a dining room and living room with comfy seating areas, fireplace, TV and even a piano. As well as an appliance-packed kitchen, there are also two bathrooms on this level, one with a bath and one with shower.
Also, downstairs are three of the bedrooms, a double, triple and a single with sofa-bed. The master suite is upstairs, with a 2m-long double bed, and an en-suite bathroom with whirlpool bath. There is also a games room with a pool table on this floor.
Beyond the excellent facilities of the golf resort and the villa itself, you have easy access to some of the best spots on the coast for water-sports, and beachfront nightlife and fish restaurants a short distance away. Cabo Espichel, Sesimbra, Almada and the spectacular Arrábida Natural Park are all within an easy drive of the resort.
The Aroeira golf resort, dubbed the ‘Wentworth of Lisbon’ in its early years, is set amidst beautiful pine woodlands and has become a destination of choice for golfers and non-golfers alike.
With Lisbon 25km away and the beaches of the Lisbon Coast as close as 6km away, you don’t need to be handy with a five-iron to appreciate its stunning location.
The pine woods and lakes contribute to a microclimate that offers the chance to enjoy a round of golf at any time of year. With a tropical swimming pool and four tennis courts, other sporting activities are catered for too.
To the south, Praia do Meco is a new, remote beach known for its surfing and nudism – indeed, Portugal’s go-to naturist beach. Around 11km from here, Sesimbra is gaining popularity as a resort.
It’s peaceful, family-friendly and has a laid-back calm about it. The heritage of the area is evident in churches, castles and historic buildings – the Castelo do Sesimbra offers a pleasant sea view (albeit at the end of a pretty steep climb).
For the most spectacular lookout point in the area, head for Cabo Espichel. A lighthouse and monastery sit on the dizzying cliffs, with the expansive Atlantic Ocean ahead, making this a place to go to reflect and be at one with nature – and many make the trip when visiting Lisbon, around one hour’s drive north.
Extending all the way along the coast from Sesimbra to Setúbal, the Arrábida Natural Park only adds to the wonder of the region. Whether scuba diving, hiking, dolphin spotting, or even hovering above it all in a hot-air balloon, it’s unforgettable in all the best ways.
