At 10km from Sintra and 20km from Cascais, Villa Valquiria has the two hubs of the beautiful Sintra-Cascais Natural Park within easy reach. This spacious villa with pool is great for golfers, with numerous courses in the region, and for larger groups it can accommodate up to sixteen guests.

The property sits in attractive gardens that feature a pretty outdoor dining area with enough seating for everyone. There’s a charcoal barbecue, and an array of sun loungers lined up alongside the 12m x 5m L-shaped swimming pool. The garden area surrounds the house and gives children lots of space to play on the lawns.

Villa Valquiria is only 1.3km from Praia das Macas beach, with shops and restaurants even closer. Inside, it’s supremely comfortable, with the living and dining room accessible from the terrace. A smaller living room can accommodate two extra beds if needed, and a well-equipped kitchen is equipped with a fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine.

The vast choice of bedrooms at Villa Valquiria includes three suites with a double bed and en-suite bathroom, two further doubles, a triple room with three single beds, and a twin room.

The sights of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park are many and varied. Cascais has much to see, with its marina and beautiful beaches like Guincho and Carcevelos being great for water-sports, while the dramatic cliffs of the Boca do Inferno, pounded by the crashing waves of the Atlantic, have become an attraction in their own right. Sintra itself is well worth exploring, being historically rich with castles and palaces, while Estoril is home to a landmark casino and one of the region’s best-known golf courses.

Hugely popular with visitors, Cascais is around 35 minutes’ drive from Lisbon, just outside the expansive Sintra-Cascais Natural Park which runs down Portugal’s most westerly fringe.

Once a small fishing village, it’s now a major resort with the facilities to match, but it hasn’t lost its charm or a sense of its history, you can still see why it was the place to be for the Portuguese nobility of the 1800s.

With none of the silliness of the capital, a day spent in Cascais is an easy-going affair. One of its key attractions is the opulent Castro Guimares Museum, featuring artefacts of Portuguese history dating back many centuries.

The museum sits in the pretty Jardim Marechal Carmona gardens, and its brightly coloured, decorative facade means you are unlikely to miss it.

The Praia da Ribeira is just one of many excellent beaches in the area and centrally located. The walk to the impressive Boca do Inferno cliffs is a popular one and scenic too, while the marina area provides another pleasant spot to while away some time with a drink or two.

Around 4km north of Cascais, Estoril is a sophisticated spot famed for both its motorsport racetrack and its centrepiece casino, said to have provided Ian Fleming with the inspiration for a sure James Bond, no less. It lacks the heritage of Cascais, but if you fancy a night at the roulette wheel, or a day at the steering wheel, it’s the place to go.

Sintra, on the other hand, is not lacking in history and punches above its weight when it comes to impressive architecture. From the romantic Palacio da Pena with its whimsical details to the arabesque Palacio de Monserrate and gothic Palacio Nacional, it’s worth arranging an organised tour to learn about these sights in more detail.

You certainly won’t run out of things to see in a hurry and if you need a break from it all, the beautiful Guincho beach or landmark Cabo da Roca provide excellent chill-out locations.

THE REGION

Thinking about packing your bags and heading off to Portugal? Why not give Colares a go? A real gem of a place, it’s one of the best spots on the Lisbon Coast for a holiday. Colares is absolutely delightful and has long been a very popular summer resort.

In the environs of Colares are the beaches of Praia das Maças, Praia Grande and Adraga, and the typical village of Azenhas do Mar, with its whitewashed houses inset in the side of a cliff.

Colares is also a demarcated wine-growing region, producing the very popular and increasingly rare Colares wine, which can be tasted at the Adega Regional, in a very beautiful building in the town centre.

ABOUT THE LISBON COAST

The Lisbon Coast is a sensational stretch of golden beaches, wave-lashed cliffs and vibrant seaside towns – but there's more to the Atlantic coastline than that. Delve beneath the surface to discover hidden coves, family-owned seafood restaurants and pristine natural parks.

The coast around Lisbon provides an easy, breezy escape from the capital, whose proximity has made it the stomping ground of kings for the last 1,000 years. In summer, Lisboistas stream into elegant Comporta and Cascais to escape the heat of the city; year-round, surfers hang loose on the coast, waiting for the rollers to crash down on the sand.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas on Lisbon Coast, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Reviews

  • "Impressions"

    on 17/08/2019

    An excellent villa located very close to the beach and some very good restaurants. There were 17 of us, including 9 grandchildren who had the time of their lives!! The only downside was the size of the kitchen, although the agent, said the kitchen areas were being upgraded later this year. Would recommend this villa to any large family with kids.

  • "Great place for families!"

    on 26/09/2018

    This place has enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a lot of people comfortably. The bathrooms seem recently renovated and are nice. The rest of the place has an older feel as it clearly belonged to a family for many years. There are books galore! The pool is great and the kids loved it. We liked the fact that the living areas and the sleeping areas can be closed-off from one another so if anyone in the group woke up early, they wouldn't wake up the others. In terms of an area, the small Praia das Macas town and beach are nice. The water is cold and all of the beaches up and down the nearby coast are windy. There is no wind and it is a bit warmer on the beaches in Cascais, but more touristy. Retaurants in Praia das Macas were really good, especially Buzio. This place worked perfectly for us after a few days in Lisbon.

  • "Beautiful spacious property"

    on 27/10/2017

    We had a great stay here. The rooms are a good size, the grounds and pool and lovely, and the location is perfect for people who want some seclusion but be close enough to walk to a village. Only slight complaint is that the kitchen doesn't have a lot of worksurfaces which makes cooking for a lot of people a bit of a challenge. But overall this is a really lovely villa and I would highly recommend it.

  • Great villa for a large group with kids

    on 22/07/2016

    reat villa for a large group with kids (we were four families). Excellent location in a quiet area (40 mins from the airport, 20 mins from Sintra and walking distance to a great beach and many restaurants). Large well-maintained garden and lovely pool. Five lovely new bathrooms; kitchen is small and old but everything worked.

  • 4 families holiday. Fantastic villa. Great location

    on 12/06/2016

    Superb location - walking distance to stunning beaches, variety of restaurants and well stocked corner shop and market. Villa itself is very expansive, fantastic grounds and large pool. Perfect for a four family holiday. Essentially 8 rather than 9 bedrooms. Both owners and Allure were very attentive and provided great communication leading up to and throughout our stay. Brilliant holiday.
