|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
For those looking for a private villa, completely secluded from the hustle and bustle of town and yet only a minute drive from the village of Cascais, this is the place to be!
"Guincho Retreat" has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and can sleep up to 10 people thanks to a comfy sofa-bed. It has all facilities for a comfortable stay, including an amazing sauna cabin in the garden! The evenings can be spent in the beautiful garden by the heated pool (32ºC average) after a session in the outdoor jacuzzi, or in the outdoor seating areas featuring a couple of sofa and a wood-burner, for the extra-touch of cozyness!
With golf courses between 10 and 15mn away, a horse-riding centre and tennis court in the village, within walking distance from Guincho beach, this is the ideal place to unwind and relax close to the ocean and nature. The natural park of Sintra-Cascais is only 5 mn drive away, while the capital Lisbon with its trendy shops and restaurants is only 20 minutes away.
Charneca is a small and typical village 10 minute drive from Cascais and Estoril. There you will find a grocery store, a couple of cafés, a restaurant, as well as a bus stop that will take you to Cascais or to Malveira (bank, supermarket, pharmacy, etc.) in no time. Guincho beach is a couple of minutes by car (or 20 minutes by foot through a beautiful green valley in the Cascais-Sintra natural park).
A group of 9 of us stayed for a long weekend a few weeks ago and had a brilliant time.
The house itself is fantastic - a really lovely property that the pictures do not do justice to. An amazing living room and 3 amazing bedrooms and a fourth that is perfectly fine but not quite as special as the other three. The garden is especially nice with a really lovely, large pool and lots of other great features and is almost completely secluded giving a great sense of privacy with no other properties overlooking and a great seating area where we spent most of time.
The location is also fantastic with amazing beaches within easy walking distance, Cascais a short drive and a great little shop a one minute walk. I can strongly recommend the Fortaleza do Guincho restaurant which is only about 15 minutes away.
To top it all off the managing agents were fantastic going over and above the call of duty to make our stay as smooth and good as possible.
All in all I have nothing bad to say worth saying - I could not recommend this property enough.
My Friend's houses can take care of almost any activity you might want to book! Just ask!
