Beautiful Sintra
Relax in a pleasant garden enjoying the fantastic Sintra landscape.

Sintra, one of the most beautiful towns in the world, and certainly one of the most romantic.

Just 30 km away from central Lisbon, the "Cultural Landscape of Sintra" is part of the World Heritage List - http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/723-, displaying a unique mixture of nature and architectural treasures.
Situated close to the capital Lisbon, the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park houses the tourist centres of Cascais and Sintra, the town of Colares, the Raso and Roca Capes, the Mouth of Hell and the Sintra Mountain. From the northern edge of the Park to the Roca Cape there are beaches below the cliffs, such as the Praia das Macas or Azenhas do Mar.

At the most westerly point of the continent of Europe, where the land ends and the sea begins the granite prow of the Roca Cape rises.

From the sea to the mountain, the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park is full of amazing contrasts. The Sintra Mountain, which rises to an altitude of 529m at Cruz Alta, houses around it a series of climatic phenomena that create exceptional natural conditions. Nature’s exuberance made it a place of cult worship for the primitive Iberian people, who called it the Mountain of the Moon. It later became the area of summer residence for the nobility of Lisbon, who built palaces of rare beauty there.

The microclimate of the Sintra Mountain also served to create exotic gardens, with the Monserrate park displaying the greatest concentration of species of vegetation introduced. The strength of the thuja firs and the enormous sequoias and arucarias contrast with the rustic modesty of the indigenous species.


Around Sintra
Around the house, Varzea - Colares, is easy to find some beautiful beaches not too populated, several golf courses and restaurants with excellent food. From Guincho (World Championship of Windsurf) to Ericeira, passing by Adraga (Europe most beautiful beach in 2003), Azenhas do Mar (a village built on the rocks with sea water swimming-pool and panoramic restaurants), Praia Grande (World Championship of Bodyboard), Praia da Ursa (beautiful naturist beach near Cabo da Roca), Praia das Macas, Samarra, Aguda or Magoito, the scenery is gorgeous. Sea water’s temperature varies is between 16 and 20 centigrade degrees.

Ribeira DIlhas
Located between Ericeira and Ribamar - about 30 minutes north, by car, from Sintra - this beach is internationally renowned as one of the best surfing spots in Europe.

Colares
Demarcated wine-growing region. You can visit Adega Regional de Colares and taste the famed excellent wine.

Rural and Country Markets.
A visit to S.Pedro de Sintra biweekly market (second and fourth Sunday of the month) or Malveira (near Mafra every Thursday) is a return to old places where you can remember your youth.

Golf courses, 30 minutes drive from Varzea: Penha Longa Golf, Quinta da Marinha Golf, Estoril Golf, Beloura Golf.

Ilha Berlenga - Berlengas Nature Reserve (north of Sintra)
Peniche is the access point for Ilha Berlenga, an island 10 kilometres offshore from Cabo Carvoeiro. The island is only two and a half square kilometres but is the largest island in an archipelago with jagged coastline of stacks, caves and extraordinary rock formations.
The islands have been designated a nature reserve, Berlengas Nature Reserve, due to its marine wildlife, clifftop flora and the thousands of seabirds that have colonised the island including puffins, guillemots, gulls, and cormorants.

Stayed Tuesday 05 April 2011
The villa was ideally located for our needs. We enjoyed the very relaxing, away from it all, countryside feel, however, also appreciated and benefited from the relatively close proximity of Sintra and Lisbon. We were a group of 16, including 7 children and we all had many fabulous days and evenings on the grounds making full use of the facilities. The grounds and swimming pool are fully enclosed which gave the children a lot of freedom and gave the adults peace of mind. The owners of the property were extremely welcoming and approachable and generously supplied us with some basic provisions for our arrival. The whole party was more than satisfied with every aspect of this property and would recommend it unreservedly.

This house is amazing! We went with a large group of friends for the weekend and it was fab! The property is huge and the facilities are great. I would definately recommend hiring a car and a Sat Nav for getting there and around though. It would be ideal for groups or families and great facilities for kids.

We cannot praise this property enough. We were 3 families: six adults and 7 teenage children and were never short of space. The villa is set in its own ample grounds: pleasant, well maintained gardens. with a marvellous view of Sintras hillside, dotted with its palaces and castles. The early evening skyline is spectacular. The bathrooms and kitchen were very clean, modern and roomy. The indoor and outdoor dining areas easily accomodated all of us the living room large and comfy though we didnt spend much time there. The swimming pool is large enough for a good swim, and deep enough for tall people to dive into. Theres also a full size table tennis table outside which for us was an excellent source of fun in those idle moments between pool,beach and meals. Local butcher and grocer were excellent and friendly. We were all agreed that we would be more than happy to return, and came away feeling we had enjoyed the comforts of a familys large and comfortable home.

We stayed at this Villa for the second time this year - it is amazing! We had a large group and the villa had plenty of space for everyone. The setting is beautiful and the villa has everything you need. The villa owners did everything that they could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable and were so friendly. The villa is excellent value for money too as it can accommodate such a big group and is so well kept and furnished. Well hopefully be back next year again!

Centrally located in a small village (Varzea de Sintra) in the attractive Lisbon area. Groceries/bakery at walking distance. Close by car to the historic center of Sintra and great views on the several palaces of Sintra. 20 minutes drive to Lisbon/Belem with free parking or 40 minutes conveniently by train to the city center. 15 minutes to the nice fishing village of Cascais with great beaches and a less rough ocean. If youre up to surfing then Playa grande is perfect. The villa (Casa Grande) is in a great condition and has all the facilities you need with a small group. Entertainment (swimming pool, billiard, table tennis, tv/dvd, wifi etc. etc.), nice kitchen (+outside barbecue), washing machine and several bedrooms with enough closets for your clothes. The bathrooms were nice and clean with spacious showers. The owners were kind, helpfull and flexible.

This house not only met our expectations, it was more than we expected. The description was fairly accurate, but the house is better than described. It has lots of space, both inside and outside, its very nicely decorated. The owners were very nice and provided the house with everything we could need. In cold weather we think the house would improve greatly if central heating is implemented as the house is too large to be heated by two fireplaces and some spare heating devices. But we certainly would recommend this house to friends.
