L633 Vivenda Rita Filipa Near Sitio, Nazaré

Full Details
Our opinion
An unusual house in many senses, not least the hidden cellar and the artificial beach. Suffering slightly from noise from the nearby main road, it is nevertheless a very homely and comfortably furnished villa with an excellent pool and plenty of space for outside eating and relaxing. Being in a growing residential area there has been building works relatively nearby from time to time over the last few years. This may continue.

 

L635 Casa Vale Da Telha Fanadia, near Obidos Full Details
Our opinion
Exhibiting a very Portuguese flavour in terms of furnishings, the quite small bedrooms on the ground floor and exceptionally large ones on the upper floor provide a pleasant and characterful holiday venue. A very private villa.

 

L636 Quinta do Xafarix Moçarria near Santarém Full Details
Our opinion
An excellent rural style farmhouse ideal for the larger family (perhaps with young children who would be entranced by the large roof room under the sloping eaves). The pool is fenced and secure as is the rest of the garden. The living room is large enough for a large party and the added attraction of the snooker table etc. a bonus – major dinner parties could take place in the large dining room though the kitchen equipment is somewhat limited. The main bathroom is somewhat old fashioned and the bedrooms are small as is the custom in this part of the country.

 

L637 Quinta Casa Near Praia das Maçãs and Sintra Full Details
Our opinion
A very nice, quiet, relaxed house just a short distance from the beach and from Sintra. We like the design of the house and the large shady grounds. It is an ideal venue for family with small children (beware of them falling off the mezanine floor!) It is close to Casa de Juncal (should there be two families wishing to stay nearby each other).

 

L642 Cazal de Giestas Monte Estoril Full Details
Our opinion
An unusual house with a lovely garden, offering plenty of accommodation in an excellent position for Estoril and Cascais. At the time of our inspection we found the decorations a bit tired.

 

L643 Casa dos Bicos Costa da Caprica Full Details
Our opinion
A very good modern house with unusual design and a very large pool, the rear elevation being particularly attractive from the poolside. Accommodation is well designed for 2 families. The small area of cultivated garden has prolific crops of oranges, lemons and figs. The area itself could be described as modern residential and whilst the property in the immediate vicinity is complete, one can hear building work in the distance. The downstairs games room is simply a bonus. Furnishings are typically Portuguese. For an extra charge, air conditioning is available in the bedrooms and living rooms. Not far from the superb beach of Costa de Caparica and nearby the small shopping complex of Verdizela. Lisbon is a mere half hour by car. Public tennis courts within 100 yards.

 

L644 Casa Luna Aroeira Full Details
Our opinion
A homely villa ideally placed for the golf courses Aroeira 1 and 2. The spacious garden including swings and a sandpit. Furnishings are comfortable rather than luxurious. There is also an outside built in barbecue.

 

L646 Casa de Madeira Herdade da Aroeira Full Details
Our opinion
The wooden walls give a particularly attractive ambiance to this very nice villa. The proximity to the Aroeira golf courses and the beach is of course a bonus. Very highly recommended.

 

L647 Casa do Roseiral Meco Full Details
Our opinion
A very pleasant and nicely furnished modern house in a quiet area of countryside yet in close proximity to the village (which has a variety of restaurants etc), and to the beach. It is also close to Sesimbra, Setubal and indeed Lisbon. Golfers would appreciate nearby Quinta do Peru and the two courses at Aroeira.

 

L648 Quinta das Flores Sesimbra Full Details
Our opinion
A very characterful house furnished in what can only be described as an eccentric fashion (exotic, ethnic and classic combined with some Moroccan influence) but very comfortable and intriguing. The proximity to the road is balanced by the accessibility of shops, restaurants etc. The centre of Sesimbra is only a couple of Kms away. The pool and garden are delightful, a most unusual property.

 

L649 Quinta da Periquita Near Azeitão Full Details
Our opinion
Not a new house, but one which is very welcoming with a most comfortable, and spacious living/dining area, leading on to the covered terrace, the views from which are outstanding. It is very quiet yet the village of Azeitão with the winery of Fonseca has several restaurants (one, highly recommended is Restaurant Jose Maria), bars etc. Furnishings are comfortable rather than grand. It is altogether a very pleasant Villa in which to stay.

 

L650 Moinho de São Filipe Amãbida Full Details
Our opinion
A most unusual and attractive complex for a party of up to 8, possibly 12 utilising the sofa beds. For the smaller party, individual mills are available at a supplement. Setúbal is a 5 min drive where fish restaurants abound. The beaches of Arrábida are close by and one can take the ferry to Tróia. Highly recommended, restored and furnished to a very high order.
