Make a holiday home in Palmela your home away from home

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.

When it comes to accommodation, HomeAway has an incredible variety of holiday homes tourists to Palmela can choose from. These include lavishly furnished apartments, some of which are in expansive golf resorts. Also available are chalets with marvellous views over the Arrabida National Park.

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.

First impressions from the road were good and the pool looked (and is) really nice. We liked the space, the fixtures and fittings, the cleanliness and everything worked (and the aircon too). Rita was very attentive and a really useful person to have around in case of problems with the villa. Our only recommendation to the owners would be fitting a blind in the kitchen and maybe in the sitting room so you have the option of shutting the sun out. There is a great 'Continent' supermarket within 5 mins drive. A car is essential as there aren't any local shops or restaurants in walking distance (even the clubhouse on site is a fair walk from the villa). Our favourite restaurant was near the castle in Palmela, called the Culto Cafe - amazing views over Palmela and good place to watch the sunset (we booked online and got 30% off the bill!). We found Setubal and Sesimbra nice places to visit and they also had a good selection of shops. Lisbon was an easy 50 minute drive with a Toll of 2.75 euro and parking all day for 6 euro (at the railway station).
