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.

                                    High quality house with excellent views

                                    5 of 5
                                    We stayed at Villa Sintra Mourisca for a week in October. We had a warm welcome with excellent communication on where to find things and also tips on where to go. The house was very well prepared, clean and well maintained. It is bright, modern and spacious - we stayed there with two families including five children. The views from the living room and the terrace are magnificient. A very good place to stay - we will come back someday.

                                    Exceeding Expectations in Beauty and Comfort

                                    5 of 5
                                    Quinta da Matalva turned out to be the perfect choice for three couples who wanted privacy but also the appropriate spaces for being together at meals and other times of relaxation. The design, layout, finish, and furnishing of the rooms not only matches what is shown in the property's pictures, but the lived-in comfort and charm of the spaces, from bedrooms to living and dining areas, is exceptional. We were able to take meals on the terrace (weather permitting) and in the more formal dining room, and spend many pleasant hours in conversation in front of a welcoming fireplace that projected comforting warmth as the early October evenings grew colder after the sun went down. The kitchen was also extremely well outfitted and laid out for making meals for our group. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also most comfortable and furnished to a high standard. All in all, Quinta da Matalva is everything that is described, and much,much more. As a group we couldn't have been happier with this property and the only complaint might be that it was too inviting so that we would get late starts to our daily touring of the many exceptional heritage sites and beaches within an easy driving distance. Sintra certainly deserves its reputation as a UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape, and while the number of tourists at different sites can be intimidating depending on the time of day, the many historic properties nearby the villa, are quite remarkable in their beauty and in the professionalism with which they are interpreted and managed. Ranging from the National Palace of Sintra, dating back to the thirteenth century and associated with Portugal's earliest monarchs, to the highly eccentric Quinta da Regaleira, an elaborate tribute to the brilliant but highly esoteric twelve-year collaboration of Carvalho Monteiro and Luigi Manini in the two decades before the Great War, the properties of Sintra are all worth a serious visit, which can take at least a half a day each. The beaches are also well worth visiting as is Lisbon, which is a short train ride away. Quinta da Matalva is an outstanding base from which to tour all of these places and more, and the setting could not be more beautiful and relaxing. Our main regret was having only one week to enjoy both the property and the surrounding sites. One should stay two weeks. Also, visitors should be prepared for narrow roads and some challenging traffic. A longer stay also allows you to adapt better to the driving.
