Casa Guincho is for lovers of nature, space, ocean and light. It is where your horizons expand as you sit in the garden with a glass of local wine and take in the breathtaking views over the green valley national park towards Guincho beach and the surrounding countryside.

A unique family home with a great vibe in an elevated location offering spacious living, amazing sunsets, lots of light and cosy bedrooms. The moment you arrive you will feel ready to unwind and enjoy quiet moments under the olive trees, BBQ lunches, candle lit dinners and chilling with friends and family by the large salt water pool (11x5 meters).

Picture yourself waking up in the mornings and walking out onto a terra-cotta terrace as you sit down with your morning coffee. Imagine the perfect place for your yoga practice or meditation. A dream house, where standing in the lounge and looking out through the huge window, you have a birds-eye view over the tree tops to the rolling Guincho waves in the near distance. 

Casa Guincho is set on a shared property, where you will enjoy your private pool and garden. The property is located in the typical small village of Charneca, only 5 minutes’ drive from Cascais and 10 minutes from Estoril. The stunning Guincho beach (where you will be able to surf, windsurf, chill out at the beach bar or simply soak up the sun!) is a couple of minutes’ drive away, or 15-20 minutes’ walk from the house, through a beautiful green valley in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. In Charneca, there is a small supermarket, a couple of local cafés, a restaurant, an equestrian centre, a tennis court, as well as a bus stop. Within a couple of minutes’ drive, you will reach the nearby villages of Aldeia de Juso and Areia. Aldeia de Juso is the place to go if you want fresh local produce, and Areia is the “surfer hub” of Cascais, being right next to the Guincho sand-dunes, with a wide variety of local cafes and lively restaurants, suited to everyone’s price range! Even though a quiet and peaceful location in which to spend relaxing holidays, the village of Charneca is only 2,5 km away from the A5, the motorway connection to Portugal’s bustling capital, Lisbon! A few minutes drive leads you to the ocean facing road from Guincho to Cascais, along which you can find some of the best seafood restaurants in the region.

The house has been recently refitted with a modern kitchen, bath and shower rooms, salt water tiled pool and added a huge chill out sofa, to enjoy the view from the lounge.

Long weekend in Casa Guincho
Posted on: 11/04/2018

Just had a fantastic long weekend at Casa Guincho. We enjoyed every moment - a warm welcome, cool decor, a huge kitchen, great barbecue, and a pool and garden with one of the best views in Portugal. Thanks for a great experience, hopefully one we can repeat some day.

Wonderful holiday in Casa Guincho
Posted on: 11/04/2018

We spend wonderful holiday in casa quincho in march! The house is very big and very well equipped. Scenery is beautifull. You can see the pine hills and behind them atlantic ocean. You can even hear the ocean when the night falls end everything is quiet. The couple who owns the house are very friendly and made us feel like home. Children are wellcome and in fact the yard of the house is very safe. One thing we enjoyed much was the nice walks throught the beautiful valley to the beach. The path starts from corner of the house.

We certainly will return to the Casa Guincho.

Really amazing villa with beautiful view
Posted on: 11/04/2018

This is a really fantastic villa - even better than the photo's show. The villa itself is really homely and nicely furnished with plenty of room and lots of different nice areas. Out front the bbq area catches the sun really nicely first thing in the morning - great to sit out with a coffee. 

The pool area is really fantastic with a lovely dramatic view over the pine-tree laden hills down to guincho beach and up toward Sintra in the other direction- its well positioned for long days of sun and watching the sun go down in the evening (we also enjoyed the lovely clear view at night - lots of constellations and shooting stars!)

The local village itself just has a small shop and cafe with basic amenities but a nice 10 or 15 min walk away there is a larger mini supermarket which has most things you need (and also a cafe, bakery, butcher and chemist).... the local beach (Guincho) was also about 10 minutes walk - but its a lovely walk through the pine trees- when you get there its a great expanse of golden sand and there is a nice cafe and separate restaurant there- great beach for surfing and bodyboarding

Its a nice quiet location but it is really easy to get to Cascais where there is much more going on (Bars, restaurants, big supermarket..) we ended up getting taxis as they were really cheap and quick (about 5 or 6 Euro) and the local taxi service came within about 5 mins of calling them every time (though there is a regular bus as well that stops right outside the Villa) . Cascais is a nice town with several more family type beaches ( a lot busier than Guincho with calmer water- a bit more touristy) nice mosaiced streets and a nice big park, interesting statues etc .. also from here there is an easy train to Lisbon which is only about 30 mins and runs pretty late (I think the last one back was after midnight)

Everything was really special with the house and the area and all the people we met were all very friendly and lovely- wish we could have stayed longer! Hope to go back soon.

Perfect location, ideal for families with kids
Posted on: 11/04/2018
Charming house in a unique location. We were two families sharing the house, 6 kids (9-18 y) and 4 adults. Ideal location in peaceful small town. Very nice room solution, ideally equipped for families, kept clean and well maintained. Successful swimming pool that was regularly cleaned. A very nice garden, but too small for ball playing.
Walking distance from Guincho beach.
Very supportive owner/manager and perfect customer service.
We would suggest this property for friends and family and would like to come back on a later occasion.
