The luxurious and unique Quinta de Santo Antonio is an 18th century manor, which has been fully refurbished during the last decade. The noble Quinta is ideally located in a rural setting, by the footsteps of the Sintra mountain range, next to the luxurious Penha Longa golf resort. The large garden and enclosing perimeter wall make this property an ideal location for families. Beautiful Guincho beach, cosmopolitan Cascais and Estoril are only 6 km away. This is a brilliant location for nature lovers, as the Sintra-Cascais National Park lies harmoniously in the background, where you will find magnificent hiking tracks with an abundance of wild flowers, birds and wildlife.

For more than 20 years Estoril enjoyed its status as the glamorous venue of the Portuguese Formula 1 Grand Prix. Famous winners include Nigel Mansell and Alain Prost (on three occasions each), seven time world champion Michael Schumacher, and Brazilian hero Ayrton Senna. The last winner was Jacques Villeneuve in 1997. Quinta Santo Antonio is located near the historic racetrack, which welcomes visitors to its stand, gift shop and paddock on special occasions.
