Villa Guincho is an amazing villa located at the foot of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
Distributed on 3 levels, it has 6 en-suite double bedrooms all with sea-view, own terraces and generous living spaces. A large terrace runs the length of the house with unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean and Guincho Beach.
This is the perfect place to come with a large family or group of friends, because there is space to gather together in one of the lounges, as well as corners when one can quietly retire to relax or read a book.
The party room with the sound system and the bar, for which kegs of beer can be pre-ordered for your stay, is great for celebrating a birthdays or just have a drink and, why not, a little dance during your stay!
The swimming pool has an adjoining pergola and bar, with barbecue and a fully equipped summer kitchen. This is where, if you order it, our chef can come and organise a yummy barbecue or authentic Portuguese meal for you.
The pool area is surrounded by a spacious lawn-area with palm trees, offering total privacy and shadows during warm summer days.
The villa is also equipped for Winter with central heating in every room for no extra charge.
All in all, Villa Guincho represents 500m2 living area and private driveway with automatic gates, and 13 000 m2 (1,3HA) of secluded garden.
The village of Malveira da Serra is within walking distance and has grocery shops, restaurants, a pharmacy, a baker's and a bank. The path going through the hills towards Guincho is a great place to go running if you like the exercice, or to just go for a walk and marvel at the beautiful scenery.
This property is everything the photographs promise. We had our family holiday here with our grown up family (12 people in all although in honesty the villa has an additional room which can accommodate a further two people). The best way to describe this property is that it reminded me of 'Tracey Island' if any of you are old enough to remember Thunderbirds 😊. It is the most fantastic villa. All bedrooms have ocean facing balconies. The Master Bedroom is out of this world. The downstairs bar if fantastic (I've been in smaller pubs). Alex arranged for a 60 Litre barrel of Beer to be installed in readiness for our arrival. Everything about this property oozes quality. Maria the lady who manages the house (and has worked there for 23 years) looked after U.S. As if we were her own family. The management team at 'My Friends Houses' (Alwx in particular) met U.S. At the property and could have been more helpful. I have to say I was apprehensive before we arrived that here may be a sting awaiting us as the property on paper looked so good. But My worries were totally unfounded. There are some fantastic restaurants within a short taxi ride at Cascaise (10euros in taxi), the airport should only cost 45 euros by taxi. I cannot recommend this property or the people who manage it more highly. Would love to return soon.
A well equipped and spacious villa with great views and amenities.
I stayed here with 12 friends in May, and can honestly say we had one of the best weekends we have had, and the villa played a huge part in this.Firstly it is huge. Despite a number of us being there, you can easily find space somewhere in the house for some quiet. On the other hand, there is 3 brilliant communal areas, which include a bar (beer of tap available) an indoor living room and a balcony with a table to seat all the guests and great view of the Guincho beach.
The pool area was brilliant, and all the furnishing you would want was provided.
It is around a 30 minute taxi into Lisbon, which between 4 people in a cab costs 20 euros each. Alternatively, the local town is around a 10 minute taxi ride, and is still a good night out with restaurants and Bars.
Could not recommend enough, and we plan to go back soon.
Recomendamos muito a casa! E linda como nas fotos, localização excelente, a Maria Antônia arrumadeira muito agradável! Foram dias maravilhosos e inesquecíveis! Obrigada Peter e Maria Antônia!
Villa Guincho with its spectecular view on Guincho was a very pleasant and comfortable base for our (four spoilt couples) yearly golf- and bridge-trip. The villa offers a lot of room, good facilities and is conveniently situated nearby (15 min. drive) the two beautiful golfcourses of Oitavos Dunas and Penha Longa Atlantico and the Quinta da Marinha course. Guincho and Cascais have good restaurants with nice views for lunch and dinner, of which Mar do Inferno had our preference. Guincho with its fantastic beach and waves is impressive as are the views on Cabo da Roca.
Imposing Lisbon is not far away as are Sintra and Estoril.
Maria Antonia was a great asset; she took care of the household, gave guidance and answers on the many questions we had.
The beauty of the area at the most western point of the European continent is breathtaking.”
With kind regards,
We booked Villa Guincho as part of our wedding holiday. We took a risk by housing the bride's entire family and the groom's family in one place. It worked out fabulously!! Most of the members came directly from the airport in cabs and it was only about 45 euro. The house is HUGE. We had plenty of space if people wanted time alone. We had the whole main house and the extra house as there were 16 of us and a baby.
Maria was on hand to help out ...we did our best keeping the place clean but with so many people and so many parties she ended up with a bit of chaos to sort out.
We had a keg of beer in the bottom floor bar for a welcome bbq the first night and spent almost every day at the other little bar by the pool.
The house is immaculate and has fantastic views of the sea and the cliffs.
The kitchen is equipped with every utensil imaginable (not that we cooked!), there are plenty of bathrooms and the balconies are perfect for breakfast or for just relaxing. The house is so well laid out that when the baby was sleeping on the second floor, there wasn't a sound to be heard from the pool area, the ground floor bar or the kitchen area.
There is an office area with internet and phone so we were able to call taxis to take us to town...they knew us by the end of the week as we had to call five each time!
Hair and makeup came to the villa on the morning of the wedding and Maria was on hand to iron shirts and suits for the men in the house. It's just fabulous :)
I highly recommend this villa and I WISH we could go there every year. It was superb!!
The Villa is located merely 30 minutes from Lisbon by car and 10 minutes from the picturesque resort towns of Cascais and Estoril.
The closest village within walking distance is Malveira da Serra where you can find a supermarket, pharmacy and several local restaurants and cafés.
A number of famous golf courses are in the surrounding area, such as Ceasar Park Penha Longa, Oitavos Dunes, Estoril Golf Club and Quinta da Marinha.
Just outside the gates are a number of paths for exploring the surrounding countryside, which are part of the protected national park of Sintra/Cascais. The nearby Guincho Beach is renowned for kite and board surfing and offers rentals and surf-schools.
