The villa is situated 3km from the beautiful Meco Beach and 2km from the delightful village of Alfarim. Alfarim has a range of shops, a bakery, butcher, bank and supermarkets. The area is fantastic for food lovers, beach lovers and those that enjoy hiking, biking or horseriding in the great outdoors. Golf lovers will be very happy that there are five excellent courses within easy reach, including the popular Quinta do Peru Golf.

Meco Beach is within the fabulous Serra da Arrabida National Park where you will find many hiking and biking trails. There is often something going on at Meco Beach. You will find watersports on offer as well as several bars and cafes. Biscas Beach is not far away and is popular with surfers.

Sesimbra is a fantastic destination for tourists seeking an authentic Portuguese holiday. It is famous for its buzzy and atmospheric fish market, the freshly cooked seafood served at the family-run Marisqueira restaurants and the fabulous, pristine beaches. The picturesque Portinho da Arrabida coastline is stunning and popular for kayaking trips and diving. The Cabo Espichel is a wild and exposed cliff headland boasting incredible views, a unique church, lighthouse and two sets of dinosaur footprints.

The Azeitao area includes various characteristic villages, in particular, Vila Fresca and Vila Nogueira. The area provides the opportunity to taste the excellent regional cheeses, tarts and wines made from the Periquita grapes and the famous Moscatel of Sebutal. Wine lovers should definitely visit Azeitao. The wine cellar of Jose Maria de Fonseca is over 200 years old. It is still run by the same family. Quinta de Bacalhoa is one of the largest wine cellars owned by Jose Berardo, a well-known art collector and one of the richest men in Portugal. You have the chance to visit the beautiful palace adjoining the vineyards which is filled to the brim with incredible works of art.

Set on a curving turquoise bay just 40 km south of Lisbon, Sesimbra is both an attractive fishing town and a popular tourist resort within easy reach of the capital. Sesimbra is one of the finest beach resorts in Portugal. It is adored by the Portuguese who flock to the region for their holidays, drawn by the pristine beached, relaxed atmosphere and outstanding seafood restaurants.

Near Sesimbra, there are the beaches of the Arrábida Natural Park, which are considered among the most beautiful beaches in Portugal. The most famous one is Praia do Figueirinha, a long sandy shore kissed by calm and crystalline waters.

The outstanding beaches and tourist attractions make Sesimbra an enjoyable family holiday. Around the region, there is much to visit, like Cabo Espichel headland or a scenic drive through the Arrabida hills and a visit to the paradise beaches of the Portinho de Arrabida.


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!

  • We were very pleased

    on 23/08/2021

    We were very happy. Big house, quiet, nice pool, etc... Close to beautiful beaches so very good stay for us.

  • Fantastic Pool

    on 05/10/2020

    Very spacious house, old but remodeled. The outside space is also quite spacious and a magnificent pool, large and with a good depth. The room could have some interior blinds on the side windows, it was very hot the week we spent there and at lunch time it was very hot in the living room. Overall it was a great week.

  • Always gladly again!

    on 27/07/2020

    Everything no longer quite dewy but completely sufficient and according to our expectations.

  • Quiet to the sound of birds

    on 12/06/2020

    Quiet and reserved environment, shaded by cork trees and the sound of birds singing all day. Barbecue grill works very well. Well maintained pool.

  • Very happy overall

    on 17/09/2019

    A lot of room in the property, we found the stairs to be a bit dangerous especially with small children but were able to "fix" the problem by moving furniture around. Equipment and amenities are nice, swimming pool is clean and big, barbecue works great. At the time of our rental the sunshade near the pool were a little bit worn and it would be nice to see new ones, other than that we really much enjoyed the stay, as others have mentioned you do hear dogs barking at night in the distance, not really a problem for us. even sleeping with open windows.
