Villa Cipreste Alto – Surface area : 300 m2

Villa Cipreste is a luxury boutique villa located 10 km from the resort town of Sesimbra. An excellent choice for nature lovers, set in the countryside by the sea and impressive cliffs, the villa boasts elegant fittings and magnificient views throughout.

The large villa was recently acquired by the owners of Casa do Lago, a rather popular property. As former holiday residence to the Swiss ambassadors, the villa was built to the highest standards. The house was completely renovated in spring 2011 by its new owners: an internationally renowned Portuguese artist and an awarded architect, and a brand new swimming pool was built within the spacious gardens.

The elegant villa has been cleverly refurbished with flair, and is a true source of inspiration for people looking for a stylish “home away from home”. The house is decorated with many “art-deco” rare pieces and other fine art elements, some of which are for sale.

Villa Cipreste can be divided into two separate units, Villa Cipreste Mar and Villa Cipreste Alto. The gardens and the swimming pool are shared between the two houses, but for added privacy and/or large groups, you can also rent the whole villa and estate.

Villa Cipreste Alto is on the upper floor. The spacious living room has seating for 10, and makes the most from the magical light of the area and has direct access to a large terrace whit magnificient panoramic views towards the sunset and a table for 8, the ideal place for “al fresco” meals. The fully equipped kitchen has a breakfast area.

The Villa has got three twin bedrooms and a fourth bedroom with 2 bunk beds. Each bedroom has got its own bathroom. From every bedroom, expect either sea or garden views.

The villa is about 500m from Casa do Lago, and so parties of up to 40 people can be accommodated close in great style!

View Villa Cipreste Alto in a larger map

The property is located near the Natural Park of Arrábida, a paradise of Mediterranean vegetation near the Atlantic Ocean. With pleasant weather all year round, this is a well known region for nature lovers and peaceful holidays. The unique microclimate, which incites the coexistence of diverse and rare species of flora and fauna, allows one to fully enjoy nature.

History and the passing of time have left a remarkable trail of Medieval castles, Renaissance palaces, splendid manors, churches, chapels, convents and sanctuaries that allow a meeting with the past. The castles of Sesimbra, Palmela and Setúbal were, in the Middle Ages, part of the defensive line for the Setúbal peninsula; these monumental fortresses are worthy of a visit. Isolated in the middle of Cape Espichel, rises the awe-inspiring pilgrimage sanctuary of Nossa Senhora do Cabo built in the 17th century and classified as a national heritage site.

“Praia da Foz”, 2 km away, is a fine sand beach; it is a beautiful unspoilt beach surrounded by cliffs, prolonged by a vast rocky platform used by fishermen. Praia da Foz is a pleasant 40 minute walk or 5 minutes by car.

Further along, you can find the beach “Praia das Bicas”, popular for surfing.

To the north you’ll discover the largest and main beach, “Praia do Meco”, with three miles of white sand and beautiful cliffs. This is the most uninhibited and naturist beach in Portugal. Praia do Meco is so long that if you walk long enough you will always find an uncrowded spot.

At the base of the Arrábida mountains you can find various beaches with crystal water and a backdrop of green hills. Most of these are small coves with fine white sand, tranquil waters and a unique microclimate.

Foz beach is 2km away.
You can walk through the woods and reach the sandy beach “Praia da Foz”, 2km away from the house, in 40 minutes; or you can drive and be there in 5 minutes!

A few km further along this long stretch of coast, is the fashionable sandy beach, Praia do Meco. Relax in a bar on wooden decking and enjoy the sunset whilst looking at the fishermen in their traditional coloured boats on beaches further afield or simply enjoy the magnificent spectacle of everchanging scenery.

Surfing is popular at nearby “Praia das Bicas”. For diving, Portinho de Arrabida beach has some of the most interesting diving in Portugal with its grottos and abundant marine life. Sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and rowing can all be enjoyed in the safe bay.

Gastronomy and wine tasting
In a country that has such an extensive coastline, it is not surprising that the sea should be one of the main sources of its cuisine. In the many restaurants at Meco, Sesimbra or Setubal, you can find all types of fresh and delicious grilled fish and also the best shellfish, such as clams, mussels or shrimps. Portugal’s climate and soil, its excellent varieties of traditional grapes and the wisdom and accumulated experience of its viniculturists have all helped to make Portuguese wines amongst the most appreciated in the world. The region of Setúbal, which has given its name to a sweet fortified wine, made from the muscadet grape, also produces robust reds and light white wines.

Arrabida National Park
The mountains are ideal for walks, and organized excursions can be arranged with the local nature tour companies. In the National Park, mountain biking, fauna tours, and bird watching are organised. Orienteering, cycling tours, riding and aerial sports are available and provide new experiences for beginners and experienced alike.

Golf Information
Portugal is a paradise where the golfer can play almost every day of the year. Quinta do Peru Golf and Aroeira Clube de Campo are a short drive away and other courses are nearby.

Getting there and around
Two hours flight from most European cities and 7 hours from New York, the Villa is reached by car from Lisbon Airport in 1 hour. Faro airport is 2.5 hours.

Apart from Lisbon, 40km away, Azeitão, Arrabida, Alcacer do Sal, Setubal, Palmela and Sesimbra are easily reached, making the self-catering villa an ideal base for unforgettable daily excursions.
A car is essential for this holiday as there is no public transport.
