Villa Chenes is set atop the hills of Serra de Grândola, 8 km from the charming town of Melides on the Atlantic coast. A hidden gem, this hilltop villa boasts 360º views, comprising over 80 kilometres of the Atlantic coastline!

If you manage to draw yourselves away from the serenity of this contemporary villa, then the local area has endless things to offer. It is just 13 kilometres from the beautiful Aberta Nova Beach, considered to be one of the prettiest in the area.

Melides has been one of Portugal’s best-kept secrets, but it is no longer the case, with its stunning beaches and sparkling sand dunes drawing in more visitors year after year. A thriving creative community of sculptors, artists, architects and musicians have moved in, adding vibrancy and charm to this already beautiful area. A sleepy hamlet no more, Melides now plays host to delicious restaurants, serving local wines alongside outstanding menus. Surrounded by nature, this is the perfect base for exploring the great outdoors and soaking in the natural delights of Portugal.

Nearby to Melides and the villa is the Herdade da Comporta, comprised of seven tranquil villages, including Muda, Carvalhal, Comporta, Brejos da Carregueira, Carrasqueira, Possanco and Sol Troia. Each offers its own unique charms, and we would recommend visiting them all!

The property's exact location will be provided to you before arrival and might come along with some recommendations about the area and what to visit.


Comporta is surrounded by rice paddies, the ocean, sand dunes and pine forests. It's a unique place where you can connect with nature and live in the moment. Comporta has a rhythm and an ambience that are all it's own. This wild and unspoilt part of Portugal attracts an in-the-know international crowd, including renowned artists, designers, and A-listers.

Comporta has a remarkable diversity of natural systems with long stretches of beach, windswept dunes, scenic pine forests, salt marshes and rice paddies which become a vibrant green in June. The region is also characterized by rice fields and its main attraction, the Comporta beach: 20 kilometres of uninterrupted white sand, a beach lover’s paradise.

As with the rest of Portugal, you can expect sun-blessed weather year-round in Comporta. The best months of the year to visit Comporta for long beach stays are from June to September, while the spring and autumn months are still suitable for picnics or day trips.


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!

Villa Chenes is a wonderful property for families with children. The spacious open-plan living spaces lend themselves to family life, with the private pool and spacious grounds sure to please kids throughout your stay! In fact, the villa was originally designed in homage to the owners' four daughters, to frame their timeless and most cherished moments, and with the hope that it will do the same for every family that visits.

Designed as two independent yet connected houses, each generation of your family can enjoy their own space, or if two families are travelling together, you can all make the most of a little privacy. There is a bunk room ideal for four children to share, and a cot and highchair can be provided for any little ones in the group. With outdoor dining, barbecues and sunset swim in the pool; you really cannot go wrong!

The Alentejo beaches along the coast are fantastic, and days spent playing in the sand dunes, and building sandcastles on the shore are guaranteed fun for the whole family. Aberta Nova Beach is only 13 km from the villa, with a good range of water sports and several surf schools perfect for kids to get involved in.
 Nearby the villa, you will find the brilliant Safari Bodoca Park, offering an entertaining day out for the whole family with raft rides, beautiful walks, animal presentations, animal interaction, forests, lakes, an exotic bird's garden, safaris and VIP packages with meals. There is a huge range of animals, including birds of prey, giraffes, primates, falconry, and so much more.

Of course, the many family-friendly attractions of Lisbon are a great choice for kids. The Portuguese have a very family-focused, making this vibrant city a hub for family activities. The Oceanarium boasts a huge collection of marine species, including penguins, seagulls, sea otters, sharks, rays, chimaeras, sea horses, starfish, sea urchins, corals, sea anemones, crustaceans, octopuses, jellyfish and much more. Lisbon Zoo is popular with Sumatran tigers, lions, giraffes, dolphins, birds, pelicans, reptiles and elephants. There is a children's petting and feeding farm and a fun cable car.
