There are a number of attractions in this area that prompt visitors from all over Europe and beyond to pack their bags for holiday homes in Palmela.

Things to do

-Monuments: Among the most fascinating sites in Palmela is the Castelo de Palmela which is classified as one of Portugal’s national monuments. This enchanting building is a history lesson on its own and its unique architecture makes for great photography. But the best part of a visit to this historic structure is taking in the panoramas of the Sétubal region offered by this vantage point.

-Food and drink: Holidaymakers spending nights in holiday homes in Palmela will no doubt be pleased to hear that this area has no shortage of great restaurants. among those offering fabulous Portuguese cuisine is the Dona Isilda on Rua da Serrinha. The food is amazing and so are the prices, and so is the ambiance. They could get more or less the same fare from A Charrua on Estrada da Moita.

-Cultural events: Palmela is also known for the great wine produced there. This wine is on the level of the renowned French wines from Bordeaux. Visitors can participate in the local festivals dedicated to these wines. One of the more popular of these is the Festa das Vindimas. It is a lively occasion with a series of shows which takes place every September and culminates in the crowning of the Queen of the Harvest.

-Beaches: Arrabida is famously known as the point where the mountains meets the ocean. There are several great beaches in the vicinity. And not only can visitors milk the delicious rays while lounging on the beaches, they can savour the chance to watch Dolphins prancing in the waters of the Sado Estuary before retiring to their holiday homes in Palmela.

The house's owners were friendly and helpful well above average and beyond expectations. The house itself is a gem, very well maintained, very clean and offers great privacy. The location is a dream, with an amazing view over the natural park. We stayed there in the second half of October, and the pool heating was very well worth it and allowed us to enjoy the water for hours. All in all: highly recommended! (And we'll be back...)

We had been a little concerned prior to arrival about the safety of the terraces with the toddler, but everything was fine, he loved discovering all the hidden places and having the freedom of the spacious interior with the numerous sofas acting as climbing frames. The setting was magnificent; the beautiful views lending incredible backdrops to romantic and family photos. This being the first family holiday with all partners of our 4 children we were very pleased with the size of the property and the assorted places couples could escape, as well as enough room for us all to gather together comfortably of an evening or around the pool. The kitchen was well equipped and cooking was a pleasant social event, with the majority of meals being prepared on the barbecue, much of the food having been acquired from the excellent market in town, although various large supermarkets were within a few minutes drive for other essential supplies. Most of us walked down into the town at some point in the week and a few even made the return trip on foot, apparently it takes 15 minutes uphill if you run in a temperature of 30 degrees. However for the less athletic there is an excellent, reasonable priced taxi service. The property was very clean, with a mid week change of towels and a thorough clean midweek. The pool was cleaned and checked every other day. Both members of staff we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. We did have one meal in the week provided by a local chef and his sister in the villa. A truly unforgettable meal. It did cost much the same as a meal in town would have cost but it was wonderful having the meal on the terrace overlooking the bay. Fantastic fish dishes and no washing up. We would recommend the walk up to the castle although we should have started out earlier on such a warm day. Many of the party also caught buses into Lisbon and thoroughly enjoyed their day of sightseeing in Alfama and Belem. Sesimbra is also a good base for exploring the National park with its fabulous beaches and view points. A few minor niggles, such as, creaking beds, dripping taps, a desire for air conditioning on the very warm nights, but these did not detract from our overall enjoyment of the property and we would very much recommend the property to any large group of friends and families.
