About the property

Private separate house, for 2 pax , 1 bedroom, stunning views and near beaches


VILLA PALHA-GUINCHO is a cozy isolated Villa (80 m2) with a private garden of 400 m2, inserted in a 12,000 m2 property, with a countryside horizon of local vegetation and pine trees, where you can hear the waves and the birds.

The living room, dining room and open kitchen occupy a single wide space ( 50m2 ) with access to the private garden. The room is furnished with a double bed, a dressing room next to the bathroom with shower. A stone floor covers the entire house.

Very quiet location with a wide view of the Serra de Sintra (Sintra Mountains) and partial sea view, located near the beaches such as the well known Guincho Beach , just a 10-15 min walk (900 meters) or 1 min drive to this beach and 2 other lovely beaches. Located in a sparsely populated area, as it borders the Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais, is a guarantee to maintain its natural and wild nature, the ideal place for a combined beach and country holiday. You can wander through the wild dunes to reach the beaches. Ideal for strolling by the sea, by the countryside or through the Sintra Mountains, and perhaps reach the Peninha Convent, which can be seen from the garden as well the Pena Palace.

Just 25 km from Lisbon, Villa Palha Guincho is located in the magnificent Coast of Guincho and the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Its’ amazing coastline and within the heart of a breathtaking, beautiful countryside, will provide you with these amazing views, and make you feel so close to nature in the peace and quiet and the beauty of it all.

In the Guincho beach you can practice surfing, wind surfing, kite surfing and body boarding, when the weather is appropriate for these sports. You will also find several other beaches along the lovely coast line. Within 1 km from the house there are health clubs, tennis courts, golf courses and horseback riding clubs. If you are more adventurous there are paths for scenic walks along the hillsides bordering the ocean and Natural Park.

Guincho and the small town of Areia, have excellent restaurants offering the best choice of fish and seafood dishes and of regional and international dishes, just a 15-20 min. walk from VILLA PALHA-GUINCHO. There is a bus stop 600 m from the house that goes to the center of Cascais, 7 km away. From Cascais, by car or train you can visit Lisbon just 25 Km. away. As an alternative, Cascais provides free bicycles ( BICAS ) that will enable you to ride along its beautiful coast of Estoril, Cascais and Guincho.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, Cascais, a fishing village, was the summer residence of the Portuguese monarchy, and during World War II constituted shelter to the European Nobility.

Just a short drive away, encircling the sea and enjoying the mountains, you will find small towns worth a visit and the most western point of Europe, Cabo da Roca, before reaching the charming historic town of Sintra. Here you can visit its beautiful palaces and gardens, where the Portuguese monarchy, also spent their summer holidays centuries before.

We receive with hospitality and speak fluent English, French and Spanish.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful holidays at this house. The Family was very friendly and helpful. The pool is great :-) It's about a 15-minute walk to the great beaches. To go to town you can catch a bus or if you want to do some sightseeing anyway, you rent a car.

It's a cozy an quiet place to spend some relaxing days. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it to everyone!

Best house, beste people and best holiday

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our first holiday in Portugal at Guincho, Cascais at a perfect place and the most friendly people.

A perfect location with privacy and all ingredients needed to create a relax environment. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality of the owners, doing their best to make us feel welcome. For example, with a bottle of wine and a guide map of the beautiful costal area of Cascais.

The house is at ideal distance from every hotspot you may want to visit during your holdiay. Lissbon within a half hour drive along the coast and within a ten minute walk you can enjoy the ocean.

If you want to spend your holiday in a hospitable environment, with all the facilities needed, combined with good weather and lovely food, this is my recommendation!!

Hübsches Häuschen für 2-3 Personen in Küstennähe mit viel Privatsphäre

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Es befindet sich auf dem sehr großen, abgeschlossenen Grundstück des Vermieters. Das Häuschen liegt separat und hat einen eigenen Garten. Bei Fragen kann man sich gern an Filipe, den Vermieter wenden. Er spricht sehr gut englisch. Wir haben uns sehr nett mit ihm unterhalten.

Vom Haus zum Meer sind es nur 900 Meter, die man auch gut zu Fuß zurücklegen kann.

Ein Auto ist trotzdem zu empfehlen, um Ausflüge z.B. nach Sintra und zum Schloss Pena oder den westlichsten Punkt Europas, den Cabo da Roca zu unternehmen.

Endroit idéal pour le repos ,le calme et la visite

  • 5 of 5

Cette petite maison est vraiment parfaite pour passer de très bonnes vacances.L'équipement est bien et suffisant, tout en étant chez les propriétaires l'intimité est bien respectée ,le calme est absolu juste troublé par quelques bèlements de moutons et le bruit lointain des vagues.

Si vous aimez la marche à pied ,il est très facile d'aller à la plage en environ 15 à 20 minutes mais bien sur pour le reste une voiture reste indispensable.Lisbonne est à environ 30 à 45 minutes et on peut y faire de nombreuses visites, Cascais qui est beaucoup plus près est une ville agréable avec son beau marché et ses nombreux restaurants.

Accueil chaleureux de Filipe et de son épouse qui sont aux petits soins dès le moindre problème.Merci à eux ils ont participé à rendre nos vacances des plus agréables.Je recommande fortement et vous garanti des vacances très réussies.

The house is within a 15 min. walk (900 meters) from the “Guincho” beach, the “Cresmina” Beach and the “Praia do Abano” Beach. Located in a low populated area and in a protected preserved park (Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais), it maintains most of its natural and wild nature. You can have a stroll through its wild dunes as you get to the wide and long Guincho Beach.

The Guincho beach is one of the favorites and ideal for surfing, wind and kite surfing, and body board. There are several golf courses nearby, being the closest one slightly over 1 km distance. It is the Ideal place for strolling by the ocean, country and mountain side of Sintra. There are 4 horseback riding clubs within a 1 km distance.

There are very good restaurants in the Guincho area and beach bars, as well as the closest town-Areia, offering the best choice of fish and seafood within a 15-20 min. walk from the house. There is a bus stop 600 m distance that goes to the center of Cascais 6 km away, however it is preferable and more enjoyable if you go there by car.

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Cascais, a fishing village, was the summer residence of the Portuguese Monarchy, and during WW II it was a shelter for European Realty, where you will find several beaches along the coast.

Just a short distance by car, where you can enjoy the view from the Sintra mountains, you will arrive to the lovely town of Sintra, and visit its beautiful Palaces, where the Portuguese Monarchy would spend their summer holidays, for some centuries.
