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.

The entire local region is enveloped in the Sinta-Cascais Natural Park, which covers a total area of 145 square kilometres. 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.

The village of Galamares is quiet, traditional and peaceful, with the vast majority of the population being locals rather than tourists. Amenities are basic, rather than numerous, but there are enough food shops to keep the majority of self-caterers happy, and visitors can always make the short trip into Sintra if they require extra supplies. For reasons such as this, the use of a hire car is strongly recommended when staying in the self-catering villas of Galamares.

                                        First time in Portugal we were made very welcome and had a great time. Restaurants nearby very good, and towns a short spin in a taxi.The house was very clean and well maintained plenty of room! Antonio was very helpful on more than one occasion many thanks Antonio! We hope to return again and i would highly recommend this property. Niall

                                        lovely restful place

                                        great stay, but it should be noted that the picture advertising the property is NOT the house you stay in! We stayed in the smaller house (though far from small) next door, which was all on the same site. We were only a family of 5 and it actually came as a relief to us that we were not staying in the red house, which is large and rambling. Anyway, the photo is misleading and should be changed in the advertising. Having said that, the 'blue' house we stayed in was terrific and packed full of character with loads of space and had a fantastic court yard and a room built on a bridge over the road leading to the lawn and pool, V cool. Sintra is just down the road and you can see the palace and castle from the pool. We loved it and I recommend it very highly. This place is ideal for entertaining! (the owners were really friendly and helpful). Filipe (owner) is a Shiatsu specialist and we booked him for treatments which were first rate.
