Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

Nestled amongst mature trees on the beautiful, westernmost stretch of Lisbon Coastline, Villa Donatela is a chaming villa and pool set in thirty-five acres of private garden and woodland.

For groups of up to eighteen people, this large and traditional Portuguese villa offers stylish living and sleeping accommodation across two floors, with spectacular views of the sea from most windows and vantage points across the estate.

The spacious living-dining-kitchen area on the ground floor is undeniably stylish and modern. Light floods in from the patio doors that lead out to the vast garden, which is just waiting to be explored. Also on the ground floor, you have a double en-suite bedroom, two further bedrooms with twin beds, a bathroom and separate toilet.

Move upstairs to discover your second, equally impressive open-plan lounge and dining room. Featuring an eclectic and charming mix of furniture, while still shared and friendly, this space lends itself to mingling and relaxing in smaller groups. Or, for finding your quiet corner.

This floor has its own fully equipped kitchen, and dinners prepared here will most likely be taken out through the large glazed doors to your fabulous wooden-decked, dining terrace. Why not hone the outdoor, private villa lifestyle to perfection by dining alfresco morning, noon and night? When in Portugal…

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including a twin room, double room, children’s room with two sets of bunk beds and a room with two single beds. You also have four bathrooms for all guests to share. Villa Donatela can provide two more single beds, to be added to the double bedrooms.

Villa Donatela’s outside space is jaw-dropping. Not only do you have a beautifully maintained lawn and garden, but you also have a fabulous private pool. It’s set away from the house on a small plateau of grass, fringed with Mediterranean plants and pine trees. This peaceful, secluded area is all yours for sunbathing, snoozing, reading, playing and swimming in your private pool. It also benefits from quite beautiful views of the sea.

Finally, and quite incredibly, at Villa Donatela you have thirty-five acres of private woodland to explore. If you’re dreaming of a villa that will transport you away from it all, you’ve found it.

Beyond Villa Donatela, Sesimbra is just a short drive. A perfect day out for all the family, it’s also a must for seafood or wine enthusiasts. There’s a beautiful choice of beaches within easy reach of your private villa, including sheltered bays and dangerous surfing hotspots. Nearby beaches offer a range of other water-sports, including windsurfing and kayaking.
