Located just outside the historic town of Azeitão, there is much to do and too see within a short drive, such as scenic beaches within the Arrabida Nature Park, palaces and wine routes. A fantastic golf, Quinta do Peru, is a mere 10 min drive away.
The center of Lisbon is 40min drive away, while Cascais and Sintra are about 50min away.
Setubal is 20min away. It has notably daily (except Monday's) Europe's best fresh produce market: the fresh fish is an absolute must! There is also some great Dolphin watching in the bay.

Cristina Holst purchased this villa in 2006
Close to where I spent many summers... I showed the region to my husband who grew up in Cannes, South of France, and he fell in love (fortunately!).
We bought the plot in 2006, started building when our daughter was born and settled in for our fist holiday when our first son was born! We come as often as possible but mainly August, Christmas and Easter.
We love the house because it is great all-year round: close to Lisbon centre to go out, discover, meet friends; but also very close to the sea; or just time to relax and enjoy swimming pool, tennis, horse riding and reading.
Die Villa ist geschmackvoll und mit erlesenem Mobiliar ausgestattet, es ist so viel Platz, dass man sich auch bei größeren
Gruppen oder Familien mal zurück ziehen kann. Ein gepflegter Garten und der große Pool laden zum Relaxen ein.
Absolut ruhige Lage (Auto erforderlich). Für Urlauber mit gehobenem Anspruch empfelenswert.
Kleiner Mangel: in einigen Bädern gibt es keine Steckdosen.
We had a great stay at this wonderful house. The outside-area was perfect and suited us very well. We were 8 adults and 7 children and the house was spacious, with bathrooms and a great private pool 50 meteres from the house. The children had lots to do, with the pool, a playhouse, tabletennis, a hammock, a field to play football, a tennis court not too far away, and overall a beautiful outdoor-area. The house was very nice furnished with lots of books and movies.The owner was friendly and helpful. I warmly reccomend it!
Vi hadde en deilig uke med barn og barnebarn, og alle storkoste seg! Stedet ligger i landlige omgivelser og har stor plass både inne og ute for aktiviteter for alle aldre! Kjøkkenet er stort og velutstyrt, og alle middager ble inntatt i den hyggelige pergolaen. For feiringen av vårt 70 års jubileum bestilte vi deilig portugisisk mat fra ett av stedets restauranter (Rosita). Det var ikke et stort behov for å bevege seg utenfor området, men et besøk til nærliggende strender kan likevel anbefales!
Nous avons passé une semaine à Breijos. Cette maison est tout simplement superbe, tant par sa taille / disposition que par sa décoration faite avec goût et raffinement. En effet, très belle villa, spacieuse: chaque chambre a sa propre SDB, Toilettes, dressing / grand séjour ... en fait tout est grand.
Egalement cuisine très bien équipée et adaptée quand on est nombreux.
L'extérieur, jardin paysagé est très reposant mais aussi adapté aux enfants (baby foot, ping pong, trampoline, balançoire, cabane, cages de foot.....).
Pour le temps, nous avons pu en profiter pour être à l'extérieur mais limite pour se baigner à la piscine.
En résumé, villa recommandée.
