Located at the heart of the residential area of Estoril, the Estoril Atlantic Villa is a large luxurious family mansion, walking distance to the busy centre of Estoril (300 metres) with its Casino, restaurants and lifestyle attractions, and also walking distance to the beach (800 metres). The interiors and the gardens were professionally designed with much flair, and fully refurbished in 2014.
The villa is composed of two adjoining wings, so there is plenty of room for a large family, or for two families, looking for privacy.
In the main wing, the luxurious living areas occupy most of the ground floor. Three large living rooms, a separate formal dining room and an extremely well equipped kitchen. The living areas flow nicely into the garden, with its lovely pool featuring a cascade, and a great outdoor shower protected by foliage.
On the first floor, three luxury standard bedrooms are located, each with en-suite bathroom and two with outdoor terraces, boasting welcoming views of Estoril and the sea. The master bedroom offers a very special Jacuzzi on the terrace, which boasts amazing sea views.
A fourth bedroom is located on the ground floor of the main wing. As a bedroom mostly used by the family housekeeper, it may not boast the same luxurious fittings as the three upstairs bedrooms, but there is plenty of room for two adults, full en-suite shower room and a TV.
The guest wing is composed of a large living room, a separate dining area, a fully equipped – although smaller – kitchen and a toilet room on the ground floor; and two bedrooms – each with its en-suite bathroom – on the first floor. The guest wing was completely redesigned in 2014, and although it may not be as grand as the main wing, guests will find its stylish design welcoming and classy. A large sunny terrace flows from the two bedrooms to the main wing of the house.
The villa features luxurious fittings throughout and is undergoing a major refurbishment in 2014.
Cleaning is included twice a week. On request, a live-in housekeeper can be provided and housed in the independent separate bedroom in the back terrace.
Pets are not allowed.
