Quinta da Foz – 1.5 km to Foz beach – close to Sesimbra Surface area : 530 m2 (380 + 75 + 75) – Private estate: 14 hectares

A stunning 14 hectare estate located near the beautiful Cabo Espichel, 35 km South of Lisbon, near Sesimbra and Azeitão. An excellent choice for nature lovers set in the countryside by the sea. The main villa was featured in a number of architecture and designer magazines for its inspiring design features.

Throughout the house, beautiful pieces such as a Corbusier long chair and Oriental and African collector items are spread.

The estate is owned by an internationally renowned Portuguese artist, and has been a great source of inspiration for his work; it was designed for him by his architect friend, also an artist; artistic minds will appreciate the many personal touches all over the estate; no one leaves Quinta da Foz indifferent, it is one of those rare places where modernity and nature blend in perfect harmony and transmit a sensation of well being and serenity; many feel inspired by Casa do Lago and leave full of ideas for their own life projects. The owner retains a house for his occasional use on the vast estate of 14 hectares and is an endless source of information on local delights and secret finds.

Most of the house is on the ground floor, with spaces flowing seamlessly into each other; the large double height living room with seating for 12 makes the most of the magical light of the area and has sliding doors on one side opening onto a terrace with a view to the private lake and the beautiful ocean 1km away and on the other side, onto a small sheltered patio with a lemon tree. For colder nights, the heating and fireplace provide the comfort required for long memorable evenings gazing at the stars in comfort, or long chats. The dining and seating areas just flow into each other while anyone who wants a quiet moment will find his private corner. The dining room opens on to a big outdoor patio of 70m2 with a barbecue and an imposing stone table for up to 18 seats. The fully equipped kitchen is accessed from the dining area and has a back entrance.

The master suite occupies a whole section of the house: off the bedroom area, there is a separate large living room with a sofa-bed for two, and stairs leading to an open plan area with a chinese canopy bed and the most spectacular views. This bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and a separate kitchenette in case you don’t want to go all the way to the kitchen for a light meal!

The second bedroom is light and airy and has a large double bed. It shares a bathroom with the third bedroom which has twin beds. All bedrooms open onto garden.

In a second wing of the house, there is another very large suite, which has a bedroom with a double bed, a living room with a kitchenette and another bathroom.

The immense 50m2 roof terrace occupies the whole width of the house and is completely private. From there you can gaze at the breathtaking 360º panorama, with a large sea view to the West and, in the far distance, the legendary Sintra Mountain, the equally legendary Cape Espichel to the South and the hills behind densely covered with pine trees.

The private swimming pool is located within a pine area, and boasts spectacular sea views, a true place of inspiration.

There is another 25m2 patio with a quiet zen area, balanced by an orange tree and interesting seating areas; an ideal spot for contemplation. All over the 14 hectare estate you will find secret corners with amazing art.

Further within the estate, there are two more houses available for guests: Casa do Vale and Casa do Pinhal.

Casa do Vale is on the ground floor, and consists of a pleasant living room, with seating area for six around a fireplace, inside and outside dining areas for 6 and a fully equipped kitchenette. The two bedrooms have each an en-suite bathroom. One bedroom has a double bed; the other bedroom has twin beds which can be joined to form a double bed, this bedroom has direct access to the outside.

There is safe shaded parking for eight cars in the 14 hectare property, which is fully fenced.

Cleaning twice a week is included in the price.

Location
The property is located near the Nature 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 micro-climate 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.

You can walk through the woods and reach the sandy beach “Praia da Foz” in 20 minutes; or you can drive and be there in 2 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 ever-changing scenery.

Enjoy the private swimming pool beautifully enclosed by pine trees. This is the dream setting for a truly perfect holiday, to enjoy in style, privacy and glam with you party.

The house is set in 14 hectares of pine woods. Its spectacular views of the coast are ever-changing with light and natural scenery surrounding you. Silence is only interrupted by nature; a bird, the sound of a storm or the waves breaking closer to the sea. The estate is so large with so many private patios and corners that privacy is still ensured, even if you spend your holiday with a large party. Many walks can be taken from the villas; the most spectacular being along the cliffs, going for a swim as a refreshing break from time to time.

The owners’ love of nature and animals is visible throughout the estate; in the way it is kept and ordered, the way the house flows into the gardens and, most notably, in the personal touches, such as the voluminous aviary housing exotic birds which joins on to a bedroom hall in a well of glass, while ponies and donkeys at one end of the estate and fish in the lake will delight young and old alike.
The estate produces delicious pine nuts from its trees.

Witness the most magical sunsets with many different shades of red and pink clutching a refreshing drink… The large terrace flowing from the main living room is the perfect place to watch the multiple shades of the red sunset reflect magically on the lake’s placid surface.

Beaches
“Praia da Foz”, 1.5km away, is a fine sandy beach, after which the estate was named; it is a beautiful unspoilt beach surrounded by cliffs, prolonged by a vast rocky platform used by fishermen. 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.

Water sports
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 of 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 wine growers 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 is 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. This is if you manage to leave the estate!
A car is essential for this holiday as there is no public transport.

Superbe propriete

Which Property Are You Reviewing?: Quinta da Foz • 
What Was The Date Of Your Stay? : Aug 2014 

Superbe propriété pouvant accueillir plusieurs familles (nous étions 15 personnes) avec des logements indépendants dans un cadre magnifique avec vue sur la mer de la piscine. Les villas ont tout confort avec pour les amateurs d’Art, des peintures et sculptures dans les différentes pièces. De plus, la maison principale a une architecture très agréable. Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par le propriétaire et l’architecte de la maison qui nous ont conseillés sur les différents endroits à visiter.
Nous avons pu profiter au maximum de la propriété ainsi que des plages situées à qq kilomètres de la maison (la plus proche est à 30 min à pied). Très bel endroit que je conseille vivement.
Le seul petit bémol mais du fait que nous étions nombreux est que la piscine est un peu petite vis-à-vis du nombre de personnes.
