Casa do Abril is a beautiful and modern villa located in the tranquil Aldeia do Meco village. With the lovely Bicas Beach just two kilometres away and the vibrant streets of Lisbon within a half an hour drive, this is the perfect spot for enjoying Portugal’s picturesque Lisbon coast. The villa blends traditional furnishings with modern styles, creating a warm and welcoming feel that is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

On the ground floor, the villa’s contemporary design makes it easy to navigate, moving from room to room with ease. The main living space has two fabulous glass doors, allowing sunlight to flood in and sliding open to combining the indoor and outdoor living. It is easy to imagine wandering in and out, grabbing refreshing drinks from the fridge and snacks from the cupboard to enjoy by the pool. The kitchen itself is well equipped, offering everything you need to prepare delicious dinners and picnic lunches, giving yourself energy for each day of adventures.

There are comfy sofas where you can curl up and watch television and a desk where you can write your postcards. The hardest decision is simply where to eat, at the modern indoor dining table or alfresco on the terrace with rippled light across the pool.

There are three bedrooms in the villa, two upstairs on the first floor and a double bedroom with an en-suite on the ground floor. The double room is spacious and bright with plenty of storage and space to relax and elegant patio doors opening onto the pool. The upstairs bedrooms are well suited to older children and kids. The first has twin beds and the second has two sets of bunk beds perfect for four kids to share. There is a family bathroom for the two bedrooms to share.

As well as the beautiful indoors, Casa do Abril offers a fabulous terrace. With high walls to offer privacy from the neighbouring properties, this sunny space is great for enjoying Portugal’s fabulous climate. There are sun loungers, a relaxed dining table and space to spread out. The private swimming pool sits at the heart of the terrace, encouraging you to hop in and out, cooling off from the midday sun.

Casa do Abril is a beautiful villa located in the charming village of Aldeia do Meco with the Lisbon coastline just a stone throw away and outstanding natural sights spread around nearby. The entire coastline offers golden sandy shores, with dramatic cliffs and luscious pine forests bordering the picturesque beaches. With Lisbon’s vibrant streets a 30-minute drive away and the delicious eateries of Sesimbra within 20-minutes of your front door, there are options for every night – the perfect base for exploring this gorgeous area. From Sesimbra you can book dolphin tours that run from the beach, a wonderful activity for kids and adults alike, making your holiday even more special.

Guests will find supermarkets, restaurants, and bars at a short driving distance from the villa. And the lovely Bicas Beach is only 2 kilometres away. Popular with surfers, this sandy beach is perfect for bodyboarding and beach days. It is also a popular choice for nudists. From Biscas, the beach stretches down for 30 kilometres, so you can take long walks down the raised boardwalk soaking in the stunning views. The sunsets are among some of the most stunning in the area, so head down to the beach for a glass of wine in one of the restaurants, enjoy the array of colours that light up the night sky after the sun sets on the horizon. Meco is another popular beach, with gold sandy shores and imposing cliffs as a backdrop, the annual frisbee competition is perfect for entertainment, so make sure you check the date! For an afternoon of adventures, head to the Lagoa de Albufeira, known as one of the most beautiful spots in the Lisbon region and offering a selection of activities, from sailing and paddleboarding to calm beaches for swimming. The Cabo Espichel Lighthouse is a 15-minute drive away and you can stop for a picnic, looking out over the vast cliffs that drop dramatically into the sea, a great photo opportunity!

Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, is only 35 km from the villa so you can reach it in half an hour. The vibrant streets, charming wine bars and historic trams all add to this beautiful city, making it a joy to explore. If you want to go for a special meal there are countless options, with famous seafood restaurants and of course plenty of bakeries selling the famous Portuguese custard tarts.

A well-designed family villa, Casa do Abril is the perfect base for a family holiday. The entire coast is bustling with activity, with a range of water sports to partake in and sights to see. The villa itself offers two floors of comfortable family living. The main living space is open-plan, filled with homely furnishings that make the room feel like a home away from home. With a modern sofa that kids can curl up on and a dining table for you all to eat together space has a welcoming feel. There is a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare family meals, although the barbecue outside tends to be the most popular way to cook for families! There are two sets of double doors that lead onto the terrace so kids can come and go as they please, rushing in and out of the pool and playing on the grass, with parents keeping a quiet eye from the relaxing lounge. There is a bunk bedroom with space for four kids to share, as well as a twin bedroom that siblings will love, providing plenty of options for your family.

With a beach down the road, kids will feel in heaven, rushing in and out of the waves and building sandcastles on the sandy shores. Bicas Beach is the closest to the villa, although being popular with surfers the sea can get a little rough for young children. Meco Beach is also nearby, and it is another popular option for families, with an annual frisbee competition that is well worth watching! There are diving and sailing schools as well as wonderful boat trips to see the dolphins, making your kids holiday completely unforgettable. The Lagoe de Albufeira is another great option, with an array of water sports including sailing and stand up paddleboarding that kids will love.

For a day trip, the zoo and Oceanarium in Lisbon are popular with little ones. However, if you do head into the city, then streets are a little steep in places with cobbles that make it difficult to navigate with a pushchair, so a baby carrier would be preferable.

  • Nice house with pool

    Posted by Torner Holger on 21/07/2021

    We were there as a family of 5. Sufficient space and good equipment. Even to cook for yourself. Small pool, unfortunately, the underwater lighting did not work. All in all a very nice house with a small garden and a nice pizzeria right next door. The “Bicas” beach is right “in front of the door”, but “Meco” is much nicer. Very nice on-site support - thanks to Marina.

    Thanks to Marina for the welcome ! Nice house, well decorated. It lacks a little cleanliness, glass, vacuum cleaner...

  • Furnished with everything you'd expect

    Posted by Norah D. on 28/10/2019

    Modern build in a gated area of 4-5 villas. Ideal for families either with a lot of kids of say two families with kids that can sleep in bunks. Decent internet connection. Lovely garden with swimming pool. Nice beaches nearby. 15 min drive to decent supermarkets - Intermache became our preference.

  • Nice villa

    Posted by Martin S. on 07/07/2019

    Nice villa ideally located and well equipped. What a pity that there is no light outside to enjoy the barbecue after dark. We had a very nice stay.
