Make a holiday home in Palmela your home away from home

A few kilometres south of Portugal’s capital is a town named after a Roman settler, Palmela. This municipality is made up of five smaller localities Quinta do Anjo, Pinhal Novo, Poceirao, Palmela and Marateca. 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. First is its location next to the Atlantic Ocean coastline, that makes for unlimited access to prime sunbathing spots as well as sublime ocean views. A few notable monuments are also found here. 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.

Weather in Palmela

Visitors planning on enjoying a summer retreat in this locale are in for a treat as the temperatures between June and September are perfect for sunbathing. Temperatures range from 26 to 29°C at this time of year and there is practically no rainfall in summer or any other season for that matter, Palmela being semi-arid. Winters are mild with temperature averages remaining in the teens for most parts of even the coldest month, January.

Travel to Palmela

Since this resort is just 25km from Lisbon, most visitors prefer jetting in through the Lisbon Portela Airport. This is Portugal’s busiest airport and tourists from practically any major European city will be able to find a direct flight to Lisbon. There are taxis outside the arrivals but travellers are better advised to make their way out of the airport where they’ll find more affordable taxis. The taxi will drop them at the Roma-Areeiro train station where they can get a train to Palmela. A ticket for this trip will cost less than 4 Euros.

Wonderful Vila, Lovely Surroundings, Great Pool

5 of 5
We spent a week at this property last September and it was absolutely wonderful! The garden is huge and very well taken care of; the swimming pool, though not heated, was warm because the weather was also warm; and the house itself is very cute and big enough for our whole family (my husband and I plus our 4 children). Everything is well maintained and the house contains all necessary items (ranging from the TV and DVD player to the linens, towels, etc, etc) plus some nice touches, like the bottle of cool white wine that awaited us in the fridge and the basket of fresh fruit on the table. Talking about fresh fruit, we never needed to buy any, since the orchard is really very big and has all sorts of fruit trees, which in September were mostly ripe and delicious! This was an original experience that delighted both the kids and ourselves. The location of this villa/farm is perfect: only half an hour from Lisbon, which allowed us to visit twice and still come back in time for a dip in the pool and a barbecue! One week was by far not enough to see everything we wanted to, the region being so interesting and so centrally located, so we will definitely come back again! Next time we plan to stay 2 weeks, to give us time to go to the many beaches around, to see Setubal and visit some wineries and also to see the Natural Park of Arrabida. One more thing: the house was fully equipped to cook full meals, but we mostly ate out, because there are really good restaurants in the area and surprisingly cheap! And when we did eat at home, the kids wanted barbecue. The person in charge of the property (the sister of the owner) was extremely friendly and helpful, spoke good English and made sure we had everything we needed. All in all, we had a really lovely time in Villa Nova and we are sure to go back! Claudia C.

Spacious villa great for extended family. Lovely view over the golf course. Plenty of seating areas outside. Great for chilling in the evenings with a glass of wine.
