‘Apple Beach Villa’ is a lovely and homely property within 4 minutes’ reach of the closest beach, ‘Praia das Maças’. It is set on well-maintained, totally private grounds, in the acclaimed World Heritage site of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Surrounded by pine trees and looking out to beautiful views over Sintra Mountain, one cannot help but take a deep breath of fresh, untainted air and melt into the “Zen” mindset of the area.

The inside is cosy yet spacious, with the perfect mix between “private” and “social” areas. There are 4 bedrooms in total (2 doubles and 2 singles that can also be twins), to comfortably sleep 8 people. The kitchen is fully equipped, and walks out onto a large sheltered terrace with a big table and a barbecue corner, ideal for cheery summer lunches and gatherings! Round the other side of the house, the comfy lounge and elegant dining room also both walk out to yet another terrace, this one opening out to the south-facing garden with its oval-shaped 11m x 5m pool, equipped with all the necessary outdoor furniture to keep everyone happy! Yet another place to enjoy meals “al fresco” amongst family and friends! The two terraces, the lush garden and pool area, are where the fun times happen at ‘Apple Beach Villa’! This is the perfect “summer house” for those who enjoy the outdoors, with all the comforts requested to totally relax!


Praia das Maçãs (or “Apple Beach”) is just over 1km away. A little further on, you will find many more beautiful sandy beaches such as Praia Grande, Praia Pequena, Praia da Adraga, Praia da Ursa (elected one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe), as well as the picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar, perched on top of the Ocean. Guincho Beach is only a 15-minute drive from the house (on the other side of Sintra Hill), and Cascais is 20 minutes away by car.

The centre of the lovely village of Colares is 800m from the villa. There, you will find plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, art and antique galleries, as well as its very own local winery! In the most recent years, a more alternative vibe has started emerging, so if you’re into local markets with organic produces, permaculture workshops, yoga retreats, alternative healing centres and equestrian events, you will fit right into the community!

The enchanting historical town of Sintra (declared by UNESCO as World Heritage) with all its palaces and garden is a 15-minute drive away, and the stunning Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of the European continent, a 10-minute drive away.

The traditional tram (dating from early 1900s) runs every summer’s day between Sintra and Praia das Maçãs. This is definitely a fun experience to try out when staying at ‘Apple Beach Villa’!

The bustling capital of Lisbon is just over half an hour's drive away. Alternatively, if you want a more “local” journey, you can also hop onto the train at Sintra and arrive in the hub of Lisbon, “Rossio”, 30 minutes later!
