About João Monjardino

The house was inherited by my me and my brother and we use it to spend our summer holidays, 15 July-15 September. We let it the rest of the year . My brother works and lives in Lisbon and I am retired and live in London.

João Monjardino purchased this house in 1948

Why João Monjardino chose Costa do Estoril - Cascais area

It's a house where I spent my holidays with my family every summer from the age of 12. The surroundings have changed over the years with more houses being built but it is still a wonderful, peaceful house on the sea front with a beautifully kept sizeable lawn and garden and a private swimming pool.

What makes this house unique

It's close to Lisbon, but also to the beaches , Cascais and Guincho, and very near to two golf courses. Tennis and horse-riding facilities also available. There are restaurants very near, both on the seafront and inland and supermarkets and shops about 10 minutes away (by car)

Maison de famille jolie et charmante

accueil très agréable

Très beau jardin bien entretenue

Je recommande chaleureusement cette location de charme

PS :Il faut prendre la voiture pour aller à la ville de Cascais et les plages à proximité sont dangereuses pour se baigner

A lovely home for a lovely holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Alpendrada for a week in July 2013 and had a wonderful time. The property as advertised is set in secure wooded grounds and the garden has lots of pine trees and rhododendron bushes which look and smell beautiful. The house reminded me of an old rambling colonial building in New England; don’t expect contemporary features inside or out, it’s old, clean and functional, hopefully it will remain so for many years to come. We had breakfast each morning and some evening barbeques outside overlooking the lawn. There is a private pool with a fence around it for the safety of small children. We spent hours in the pool or on the sun loungers adjacent to it drinking, reading or planning the following days activities. Our party consisted of three couples but there was room for more, on our 3rd day we came across another en suite bedroom we didn't know was there! I think there were 7 toilets in all scattered around the property!

Although there are restaurants within walking distance it is extremely advisable to have your own transport.

"Alpendrada sera para sempre lembrada com saudade!

Uma casa muito confortavel, um espaco muito bem arranjado com todas as facilidades. Foi para todos nos uma estadia explendida, saimos todos com vontade de voltar. Para a maioria do grupo foi a primeira visita a Portugal e sem duvida que a Alpendrada em muito contribuiu para uma imagem positiva do nosso cantinho a beira mar plantado."
