Situated 30 km from Lisbon on the scenic western coast of Portugal, Casa das Nogueiras nestles into the hillside just above the traditional Portuguese village of Malveira da Serra . Walk straight out of the back of the house and you are in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park a predominantly wooded area covering virtually the entire Sintra mountain range. Visit Europe’s most westerly point Cabo da Roca only a 20 minute drive away. The nearest beach is the magnificent Praia do Guincho which is splendidly set looking out westwards. Around the end of the mountain you can access both Praia da Adraga and a bit further on Praia Grande a long beach with Atlantic breakers coming in steadily.Our favourite is the beach at Carcavelos overlooked by a fine Napoleonic fort and with gentle waves and plenty of cafes.
