Make a holiday rental home or villa in Galamares, Portugal your home away from home

Galamares is located in the very heart of the Sintra Cascais Natural Park, in the south-west corner of Portugal. Many visitors to the region opt to stay in the nearby town of Sintra, but Galamares is a different proposition altogether, being a small village that sits on the fringes of the action. These peaceful surroundings allow you close and easy access to the beaches, towns and all of the key attractions of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Things to do in Galamares, Portugal

Two of the main lures for tourists visiting Galamares are beaches and golf. The beaches are those of the south-west corner of Portugal, and attract visitors of all ages with their great combinations of sand and surf. Galamares golf options are also numerous, with several good quality courses in the vicinity, and the weather to match.

There are a number of historical and natural attractions to be found within the park, which will also be of particular interest to nature lovers and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts.

                                        Wonderful historic house

                                        5 of 5
                                        Perched on a hillside overlooking nearby villages, the exotic Monserrate Palace, and the ocean in the distance, Quinta Sao Bento is a gorgeous, tastefully restored historic country house. It was the perfect villa for our family and we had a truly wonderful stay. Quinta Sao Bento is peaceful and our time here felt restorative. We loved everything about Quinta Sao Bento, from the secluded location to the cozy and inviting rooms and terraces and the tasteful period decor. The grounds are lovely and the swimming pool enticed us each and every time after our long walks up and down Sintra's cobblestone streets. And Ana, the housekeeper, is so wonderful, a real treasure to be sure! There is only one problem with Quinta Sao Bento, you'll end up falling in love with it (we did) and having a very difficult time having to leave!
