Make a holiday villa in Santa Cruz your home away from home

Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, is a great place for holidaymakers to look for relaxation and adventure. The weather is ideal for sunbathing and all sorts of outdoor activity while its streets are lined with monuments that date back to the Roman era among other important historical sites. Tourists will find that there are lively shopping centres with the latest in fashion as well as trendy cafes. And as they enjoy the delights of Lisbon, holidaymakers will have the joy of staying in holiday rentals in Santa Cruz, right next to the Atlantic Ocean. This means easy access to stretches of golden sands and the unlimited ocean breeze. Being part of the Torres Vedras municipality itself boasts a rich history, history buffs won’t have to go far to find something interesting. The holiday apartments in Santa Cruz command incredible views overlooking swaths of golf courses and the Atlantic.

Things to do

-Monuments: Even without leaving the Torres Vedras area, residents of Santa Cruz holiday homes will be able to view such astonishing constructions as the Moorish Castle. There are also other military installations, built during the locale’s earlier years which have now fallen into disuse. Santa Cruz itself has its fair share of ancient marvels including an old water mill and churches such as the Santa Helena chapel.

-Museums: To add to the monuments, visitors can make a point of stopping by the Municipal Museum Leonel Trindade. This is where artefacts detailing the history of mankind from prehistoric times to when the Romans occupied this locale. There are also dinosaur fossils from the Upper Jurassic period and plenty of info about the different dinosaur species that existed. The name of the museum comes from a renowned native archaeologist and museum director.

-Beaches: Visitors lucky enough to secure holiday villas in Santa Cruz will find that they are close to the Atlantic Ocean coastline. Here they’ll be able to recline and gaze into the endless blue of the ocean while receiving that long-awaited sun tan. The coastline is interspersed with lofty cliffs from which visitors can enjoy sublime panoramas.

-Jose Alvalade Stadium: Football fans will jump at the opportunity while in the Portuguese capital to pay homage to the stadium where Cristiano Ronaldo’s footballing journey began. Holidaymakers in Santa Cruz holiday homes will only have to travel about 27 miles to get there. They can take time to peruse the club’s history or wander through the complex which also contains a movie theatre, health club and a sports pavilion.

-Vasco da Gama Bridge: This wonder is also about an hour’s drive from Torres Vedras but is well worth the effort to visit. At 17km, the Vasco da Gama Bridge is the longest in Europe and among the ten longest in the world. It spans the Tagus River, not far from Lisbon.

Weather in Santa Cruz

The weather in this is very temperate and holidaymakers who go there between July and August expecting oppressively hot climate will be surprised to find amicable temperature averages of about 20°C. However, there is precious little rainfall at this time of year. The warm weather lasts until October when temperatures descend into the teens as autumn arrives. But even when winter finally arrives, temperature averages don’t go much below 15°C.

Travel to Santa Cruz

The Lisbon Airport is less than 10 miles from Torres Vedras and so tourists will find it reasonably straightforward to get to their holiday homes in Santa Cruz. Most popular airlines have direct flights from the majority of the major European cities to this airport. On arrival it is advised that travellers get a taxi to the Campo Grande bus station and get a bus from there to the Torres Verdas area. The total cost of this should come to less than €20.

Beautiful, large, spacious villa, very well maintained with a quirky feel, set in a stunning locatio

5 of 5
We are two families with four grown up sons and our elderly father, in total 10 adults, ranging in age from 17 to 87. We were greeted by Luis (owner) and his son, with a very warm welcome, and a well stocked welcome pack full of local produce, which was very much appreciated. Only once did we have to contact Luis during our stay, he answered instantly and the issue was resolved within an hour. We found the villa spacious and very well equipped, with two large screen TVs, a pool table, WiFi washer and dryer etc. Some of the bedrooms were small and the a/c was not working in all rooms but the beds were very comfortable, there was constant hot water and we loved that it had a very lived in feel, and was full of interesting ornaments and books. Truly a home from home. The views from the upstairs balcony were spectacular and it was wonderful to be so close to the beaches. The pool was a nice size and there were ample and comfortable sun loungers, and eating areas front and back of the villa. The town centre was a short walk and had everything we needed to make our holiday even more enjoyable, including a fabulous bakery, supermarkets, lovely restaurants and a little square with several bars and live entertainment. To conclude I highly recommend this villa for families of all ages. Vera

Beautiful and Modern Villa

5 of 5
We loved our stay at the villa, which was very nicely furnished, clean, and had all the amenities. We were in Portugal for a wedding at the Areias do Seixto Hotel and were very pleasantly surprised that the villa is in the same complex as the Hotel's residences and that the hotel itself is about 50m from the villa. In fact, the villa is basically identical to the hotel's residences, but closer to the hotel than many of these residences. Check-in and check-out were very easy and convenient. I highly recommend this villa!
