About the property

Modern well appointed 5 bedroom villa with large terraces and private pool

Set in 1200 square metreson one of the highest ponts in the bay, Casa Branca is perfect for groups of families or friends looking for an intimate and panoramic setting while maintaining easy access to Sesimbra. The accommodation is exceptionally spacious, well laid out and furnished and equipped to a high standard with stylish decor. Casa Branca has terraces at all levels with a terrace leading out onto the private heated swimming pool. The barbeque area is equidistant between the roof terrace and the kitchen. There is a large covered terrace on the first floor which is perfect for alfresco dining, and a comfortable roof terrace.

Please note that the owners will be living beneath the villa.

Boasting springtime temperatures during the winter and cool summers freshened by a breeze blowing in from the Atlantic, Costa de Lisboa, on the southwestern coast, offers a rich and impressively integrated diversity. The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of History. The Alfama is one of the oldest quarters in Lisboa. Since it largely survived the earthquake of 1755, the area still retains much of its original layout. Adjacent to the Alfama are the likewise old quarters of Castelo and Mouraria, on the western and northern slopes of the hill that is crowned by St. George's Castle. Every year in June, the streets of all three quarters come alive with the feasts in honour of the popular saints. The Graça quarter and the churches of São Vicente de Fora and Santa Engrácia are within walking distance of this area. Radiant skies brighten the monumental city, with its typical tile covered building facades and narrow Medieval streets, where one can hear the fado being played and sung at night. But Lisbon is also the stage for popular festivities, the place for exquisite shopping, exciting nightlife, and interesting museums, a place from where motorways branch off in different directions. Casa branca is situated in sesimbra only a mere 40 km away from lisbon. a picturesque small fishing town, with a medieval castle. Like a sentry the ruins of this 13th Century castle built by Sancho II protectively overlooks the village. Whilst here, do not miss the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora in Cabo Espichel (which was constructed at the turn of the 17th Century as a sanctuary and has often been used as a location for filming due to its singular architectural design) and Lagoa de Albufeira, a favourite spot for wind surfers.

Date of Stay

10 Jan 2017

We booked the property for a 3 generational Christmas and New Years holiday for 2015/2016. To sum up this property in two words would be WOW, and STUNNING. On the the details: The property can't be done justice with the pictures, the views are plain gorgeous from patios on 3 levels. The inside is VERY spaceous, frankly with 6 of us we did not occupy entire sections of the house. The kitchen is large, thus accomodates cooking for a larger group very easily. The owners live downstairs, which you would never know except for pleasant and great tips and hints on local sights, food, etc, and a very much appreciated stop over on New Years, great folks. The cleaning service provided is impeccable. Initially we were concerned about heat as we used the property in the winter, never even used 2 of 3 provided heaters, no issues what-so-ever. The location, in addition to the multi million $ views could not be better. Great view of Sesimbra, a quick drive or solid walk and you are there, but you are staying where it is prestine and quite, if you want the 'bustle' (well, hard to call it that in December, it was very nice and quite during our stay, but hey....) you are there in minutes. The beach in Sesmibra is quite nice, regardless if you hang out or use it otherwise. Nice restaurants in town, and for self cooking foodies, do not miss the municpal market to gather your supplies in the morning, we had some excellent meals of local fish grilled on the provided, coverd, barbeque station (was nice in the rain on the few days when we had rain). Regarding Lisbon, you can drive 35 or so minutes to the ferry that crosses the river, hop it, and viola, be in Lisbon for sight seeing without any parking hassles or the like. I high recommend this property to anyone seeking some serious downtime with access to all the excitement your heart desires. We found this property ideal for or multi generational get away. Don't be surprised if you find us back!!!

Fantastic views, clean and well equipped spacious villa.

  • 4 of 5

Great area woth lots to do, dramatic coastline and easy access back into Lisbon, a relaxed, though hilly city to explore (approx 50 mins). Villa has a stunning hillside setting but the road down into Sesimbra is steep, quite busy and no proper footpath. Sesimbra is a great little town with a sandy beach and lots of fish restaurants.

Villa is spacious, great for 10 of us, lots of eating out areas and the pool has some natural shade which was useful in the afternoons. No table tennis table (damaged during the winter apparently). Owners on site and very helpful, especially when we had a mis-understanding over the hourly rate of the local chef who came to cook for us one evening- sorted the following day and money reimbursed without any problems.

Put Estrada de Argeis into your sat nav and that will get you to the road at the bottom of the dead-end lane the villa is located on (which isn't recognised by sat navs). Plenty of local supermarkets for supplies. We enjoyed the walk up to the local castle and along the coast to find the dionosaur footpronts.

Overall, a really good family holiday, just wish we'd booked to stay longer!

A perfect house for ten friends to relax and enjoy the sun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house. Everything was there that we needed. Each person had enough space to do their own thing as well as come together for meals, drinks and sitting on the roof. The town is close by but a car or taxi is the best way to get down. The town is also beautiful and well worth a visit if you stay. Thanks for having us and letting us enjoy your space.

A Magnificent Place For Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This 5 bed/5 full bath villa over looking the Atlantic Ocean and Sesimbra worked so well for our family of 10. Large living space, large well equipped kitchen, incredible outdoor living space. Set high on a cliff overlooking the sea was the epitome of peaceful. We were there in the middle of January so it was too cool to enjoy the pool but just relaxing in the sun on the many porches, including the roof top patio wa still splendid out door time. There is no central heat or air, but fireplace worked well and space heaters kept us plenty warm in the house once the walls warm up. Great location for exploring Sesimbra which is not a bad walk down the hill, but have someone come down to get you in a car, or be prepared for a good climb. Lovely small beach town with many delightful restaurants, we ate out more than we thought we would but so many great selections. We cooked in 2 nights and had wonderful fun time cooking. If weather had been warmer we would have grilled on the roof as there is a built in grill and large table to eat al fresco. On rainy day we took a day trip to Sintra to explore town and many castles. One day in Lisbon, about a 45 minute drive was also quite nice and fun, time your visit around rush hour traffic over the bridge or you will sit in traffic sometimes. I would definitely come back. Even a group that was not family would work as bedrooms have much privacy. It is a very large home.The owner was delightful and attentive but in no way over bearing. Can you tell I loved this property and area?

We all had a fabulous stay, at Casa Branca ; the villa is absolutely breathtaking, the views , the facilities & space! We are seriously considering coming back next year. We had a chef for 3 evenings & the cuisine was delicious. The support from the owners is second to none & they were on hand along with a housekeeper & maintenance chap for any queries or questions. They provided great tips & made our stay all the more enjoyable. Amazing!

There are numerous local activities including kite surfing, dolphin watching, climbing, cycling trails, horse riding, trekking, massage and spa facilities, boat trips, fishing expeditions, vineyard tours and wine tasting. For golf enthusiasts, there are several neighbouring courses. Lisbon is a mere 40 KM away and from there you have easy access to Sintra, Cascais and Estoril. Around sesimbra you have some beautiful beaches like the surferbeach of Meco and the famous area of portinho de Arrabida which is situated in a gorgeous bay overlooking Troja . Casa branca is situated on on of the highest points in the seimbra bay overlooking the natural park of Arrabida on the left hand side and looking out over the sesimbra bay in the front and right hand side.
