Beautiful property with a superb view

  • 5 of 5

We, a extended family of 9, stayed comfortably enjoying the surroundings for a week in October. The property met our expections wonderfully. The house was clean and in great shape. The garden and pool were also well maintained with a gardener taking care of it.

The absolutely best thing about the property is its location. The view is spectacular with rolling hills and the Atlantic ocean in the background. The surroundings are great for hiking and just enjoying the nature in general.

Ulgueira is a picturesque small village with narrow streets and whitewashed buildings. The small village doesn't have a grocery store so a car is necessary. Both Cascais and Sintra are just a short drive away. For people who enjoy hiking I recommend climbing down to Ursa beach which can be found near Cabo da Roca. Its only a short hike away from the property.

I warmly recommend renting this property for anyone who find the descripton and pictures appealing.

Kiitos! Obrigado! Danke!

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Die Quinta da Barroquela befindet sich in traumhafter Lage im Naturschutzgebiet um Sintra herum im kleinen, ursprünglichen Dörfchen Ulgueira - für uns als sechsköpfige Familie war dieses Domizil ein hervorragender Ort, um zu entspannen! Für die Mahlzeiten konnten wir zwischen den drei Terrassen wählen (die Küche ließ keine Wünsche offen, es ist einfach alles vorhanden); nach dem Aufenthalt an einem der naheliegenden Strände haben wir oft den Tag am Swimmingpool ausklingen lassen. Verschiedene Ausflugsmöglichkeiten nach Sintra und Lissabon bieten Abwechslung zum Strandprogramm. Erwähnenswert ist ebenfalls, dass ein wunderschöner Fußweg zur Adraga-Bucht führt (30 min. Gehzeit, war aber auch für unseren Vierjährigen gut machbar). Das Haus und der Garten sind sehr gepflegt; wir durften sogar aus der Gemüseecke ernten, was gerade reif war - köstlich. Die ersten zwei Tage war es noch recht kühl; dafür hat uns dann der kuschelige, warme Kamin im Wohnzimmer entschädigt. Anschließend eineinhalb Wochen lang Sonne und Badewetter! Bei allen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten ist das Haus mit seinem riesigen Garten so schön, dass wir an manchen Tagen einfach dort vor Ort geblieben sind. Sehr empfehlenswert! Zusätzlich war die (deutschsprachige) Betreuung vor Ort durch die Hausvermittlerin sehr herzlich - wann immer wir eine Frage zu Restaurants, Märkten, Ausflügen etc. hatten, sie war immer für uns da.

Quite and idyllic; Fantastic view towards the Atlantic Ocean and Cabo da Roca;

Situated between Sintra and Cascais (15 km), a good location to explore the area;

The small city of Sintra, only 7 kms away, (perhaps better known in English in the older spelling of Cintra) lies between Lisbon and the Atlantic on a promontory of land between two gorges on the north side of the wellwooded Serra de Sintra. With its beautiful setting and equable climate it was an early choice as the summer seat of the Portuguese royal family. The beauty of the scenery, combined with the magnificent subtropical vegetation and the nearness of the sea, is almost beyond compare, making Sintra one of the loveliest spots in the Iberian peninsula, wholly justifying Lord Byron's description of it as 'glorious Eden'.

Early in 1996 UNESCO included Sintra in its list of world cultural heritage sites. During the next few years increased efforts will be made to restore the town's unique architectural character and to ban private cars from the center in summer if possible

Guincho Beach (10km) - El Dorado for surfers, wind- and Kitesurfers

Between Cascais and Ulgueira, lies the well known Guincho Beach, which belongs to the natural Park of Sintra-Cascais. It is the perfect place for Windsurfer, because of the ideal combination of big waves and wind. That is the reason why international championships, like the 'guincho Wave Masters', a leg of the Kiteboard Pro Tour is held on this beach, attracting all the best kitesurfers in the world.

Recommended for golfers to play at Sintra (Belas/Beloura/Penha Longa) (10 km), Estoril (18 hole), Cascais (Quinta da Marinha) (20 km).

Excellent surfing and windsurfingspots at Praia Grande (7km) and Guincho Beach (10km)

Beautiful area with restaurants and bars in 5 min drive; 'Moinho Dom Quixote' is a fabulous bar with a fantastic view towards Guincho and Cascais and is 5 min drive. Local restaurants offers fabulous cuisine;

Local market 5 min drive on weekends with fresh bread, fruits and vegetables;

Nice for those who wants to walk through the cliffs and mountains; Cabo da Roca is 10min drive away;

A very good place to stay if you want to explore the area of Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais and the west coast.
