Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Castelo - New Design Villa

Large villa (5 bedrooms) with amazing sea and castle views with private pool.

This is my dream house. Built in 2011 it has all the most modern technologies, both in terms of home automation as well as construction techniques and energy sources. The house uses geothermal energy for under floor heating and cooling. Most of the house is on the ground floor with the kitchen, dining room and living room (with a lovely fireplace) combined in a unique blend of modern architecture/design with double ceiling and an amazing view. There are also 3 large bedrooms in the ground floor (master suite with en-suite closet and bathroom and 2 other double bedrooms with a common bathroom) with the same view in a total area of 250m2. In the mezzanine floor you have the TV area with cable TV and the office with a large table where you can check your computer. There is also a bathroom and a sofa that can be used as an extra bed. The basement it’s huge with double in-suite guest room and another bathroom. There is another room in the basement with a bed that can be used if needed. In the outside you have a great area with an amazing view of the sea in the horizon and the Sesimbra castle. With a large wood deck, and fireplace this area is perfect to stay outside, enjoy all fresco dining and have some very relaxed moments. The infinity pool is just in front of this area and provides an amazing view both during the day as well in the evening with the lighting of the pool on. Sitting in a plot of land with 6.300m2, the house also has a great landscaped garden and some fruit trees that are now growing. WI-FI is accessible from everywhere.

Empfehlungswert

  • 5 out of 5
Wir durften eine Woche in diesem wunderschönen Haus verbringen und haben es sehr genossen. Die Bilder und Beschreibungen sind absolut korrekt. Das Haus ist sauber und gepflegt. Gerne haben wir hier unseren Urlaub verbracht.

In der nähreren und weiteren Umgebung gibt es viel zu entdecken und man wird bereits vor der Anreise mit Informationen versorgt, einfach toll.

Wer hier seinen Urlaub verbringt wird nicht enttäuscht sein. Es gibt ein großes Platzangebot, jeder kann hier seine Ecke finden, auch für größere Gruppen und Familien.

Der Garten ist wunderschön und wir haben Obst und Kräuter jeden Tag frisch gepflückt.

Der Pool und der Ausblick sind noch viel schöner als auf den Fotos.

Gerne kommen wir mal wieder.

Wonderful house, wonderful location

  • 5 out of 5
Everything about the house from the inside out surpassed all our expectations. Fantastically kitted out with every modern convenience, clean, bright and with lots of towels for bath, beach and pool all made our stay bliss. Convenient for all restaurants, beaches and the city. We honestly could not have wished for more apart from the sea being a little warmer but then that might attract hordes of tourists & we'd hate that! Even our 17 year old was happy and that made us happy! We will definitely be back.

Stunning!

  • 5 out of 5
Our holiday here was a first for us - we had not stayed in a such a contemporary property before nor had we visited this part of Portugal and neither the house nor the area disappointed. .

The stylish modern design and setting were major factors in our selection of this property and although it was larger than we needed (there were only 4 of us) we found the accommodation very comfortable and flexible, suiting a wide range of group sizes, both large and small.

The house is visually stunning, with clean-cut modern lines and breathtaking views though a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows down a small valley with the sea in the distance. Sesimbre Castle looms over the valley to the east, creating a dramatic illuminated backdrop at night. Inside, a floating staircase rises from the double height living area to an upstairs study and TV lounge that shares the views to the sea over the decking with in-built infinity pool.

The property is well equipped and furnished to a extremely high standard with designer furnishings that beautifully complement the contemporary architecture of the building. The kitchen, bathrooms and toilets are equally well appointed with designer fittings. The contemporary design of the building is blended with advanced technology. Electronic panels in each room control lighting, blinds and shutters, while a centralised control panel allows settings to be adjusted throughout the house. Infra-red detectors sense movement and turn on recessed spotlights to illuminate your passage from the lounge to dressing room to bedroom.

If you can drag yourself away from the house, the delights of Lisbon, Cascais and Estoril are less than an hour away by car, while the unspoilt scenery and beaches of Meco and Lagoa de Albufeira are even more accessible. There is a lot to do and see in this area and some great restaurants to visit.

We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful property and hope to return here in the near future to explore more of this stunning coastline. The property offers the best of modern design and comfort in a setting that has resisted the advance of mass tourism. As such it represents the best of the future and the past.

An amazing house with incredible views

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely loved the house and all its assets! Everything is impeccable, all is domotic, the swimming pool is breathtaking.

The views from the house are really pretty, views to the sea, to the castle of Sesimbra.

The kitchen is great! and so are the bedrooms and living rooms.

It's a perfect place to have a nice luxury holiday.

Fantastic House, Access to So Many Beaches

  • 5 out of 5
If one of the reasons you enjoy renting homes for your holiday is to experience new interior design ideas, bold technical innovation and architecture that seamlessly blends inside and outside space then 24 Rua da Fonte Esquerda should definitely be on your list.

If an incredibly diverse range of beaches and experiences within thirty minutes of your home is another reason to rent holiday homes then 24 Rua da Fonte Esquerda should move to the top of your list.

The last day of our trip was our best day on one of the best beaches we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Dramatic sand dunes, fantastic surf and wide, beautiful sand beaches make for a brilliant day. Unspoiled by development but an excellent bar and restaurant that comes alive when the sun goes down: Perhaps a little slice of Ibiza on Mar Do Peixi.

Our family spent a week here and our biggest challenge is that the house is so comfortable, enjoyable and interesting that it was hard to leave in the morning. Our days always seem to get going too late. But once we get going you have so many places to choose – beaches, historical towns, lovely fishing villages that you will wish you have more time to experience it all … twice!

The owners have great local contacts. Advice and help is always close by through a well-organized support network.

This is a wonderful house and a wonderful holiday.

Great two weeks holiday in Sesimbra

  • 5 out of 5
The house
The house lives up to its promise: modern, very spaceous and superb view. We were with two families, 10 people in total, living together for 2 weeks but never had the feeling we were living at each other lips. Very well equipped kitchen, swimming pool with outside dining area including BBQ, comfortable bedrooms. Two bedrooms are in the basement where the lack of daylight is compensated by the lower temperature. The owner has been very quick in responding to questions and helpfull in providing hints and tips about the area. One of those concerned the use of local services for car hire: pick up/drop off at airport, car delivered at house. Also for renting mounting bikes and other tours, excellent service, pleasant, english speaking.

The location
Sesimbra area provides much more than you could cover in two weeks. We made several trips to Lisboa (where you must taste the 'pastel de Belem' despite the queue), took wind surfing lessons at Lagoa de Albufeira, visited Arrabida natural park and Setubal, played golf at Quinta do Peru, went to the beach at Praia do Meco, took a boat tour along the coast, did some off road mounting biking (lots of good tracks), visited quite a few restaurants as recommended by the owner, all very enjoyable and in between relaxing at the pool reading a book and enjoying the view of the castle and into the valley.

Anything to complain?
Frankly not or it must be that if you do not prefer any physical exercise, you must use the car a lot because it is quite hilly in the area. For us a place and a house to come back to.

Between Lisbon and the Algarve there is a place in Portugal where dreams come true. Surrounded by stunning blue and green landscapes, travel here and let yourself emerge in an ocean of tranquillity that the region of Costa Azul offers you. The property is located very close to Sesimbra village (2km), and sits in the middle of this region about 40km from Lisbon going south. Sesimbra is a lovely fishing village with a children friendly beach and is a popular holidays resort for diving with several hotels, amazing sea food restaurants that you will never forget. and some nice pubs. Besides all the amazing beaches nearby (Aldeia do Meco, Arrabida, Praia da Foz, Lagoa de Albufeira) you also have other unique attractions like medieval castles (Sesimbra, Palmela, Setubal) that are worth a visit, dramatic scenery views in Cabo Espichel , For the lovers of kite surfing there are also amazing facilities in Lagoa de Albufeira. For the lovers of speleology, Sesimbra coast offers unique and still undeveloped caves to discover (there is a local company that offers this type of guided visits) Golf is also available all year round, with 3 lovely golf courses nearby (Quinta do Peru, Herdade da Aroeira, Montado) Wine cellars in Azeitao are also a must go and deserve a visit where you will be able to taste some amazing and unique local wines. On top of all this, Lisbon is just 45 minutes away where you have a huge array of attractions from museums to shopping’s and of course a very intense night life.
