The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Lisbon is a charming city, mixing european with moorish roots (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisbon). This mix makes it a unique city, with its many hills and fantastic views from its infamous miradouros.
The Coast of Lisboa has many beaches on offer: Carcavelos, Guincho, Costa da Caparica and surrounding beaches (such as the great Meco beach). They are just a few quilometres away from the apartment. The climate is sunny, with warm temperatures all year round.
There is also the historical and famous village Sintra, 30 Km. away from Lisbon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sintra).
In Lisbon there are a lot of places to visit. Near the apartment you have Saint George's Castle (Castelo Sao Jorge) and the oldest (and most charming) streets and areas : Alfama, Santa Clara (where the Flea Market is located), Mouraria and Graça. Here you have wonderful views of Lisbon and its river Tejo. The oldest monuments, as Sé de Lisboa, Mosteiro de S. Vicente de Fora and Panteão Nacional, are 10-15 mins walking distance. If you want to see some more pictures of Old Lisbon then see the following link http://imagenslisboa.blogspot.com/2008_03_01_archive.html - all of those pictures are within walking distance (max 20 mins) from the house.
If it nightlife you are after, then you can quickly reach Bairro Alto with a 20 min walk (or quick taxi ride of 5 euros), with all its outside busy bars.
