The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region

Situated on the west coast of Portugal, just north of Lisbon, the seaside village resort of Praia das Maçãs is only 12km from the exquisitely beautiful world heritage site town of Sintra which boasts amongst it's major attractions, the Moorish castle and the fairy-tale like Palácio da Pena (Pena Palace).

There is also easy access to the historic capital city of Lisbon itself, and along the coast is the famous casino in Estoril, or the beautiful marina at Cascais and the many beaches and villages to explore.

The region is well known for surfing and good for walks, cycling and golf.

Praia das Macas, Apple Beach

Within 5 minutes walking distance of the villa is the Lido with its Olympic-sized swimming pool with water slides; a children's playground; Tennis courts and 5-a-side pitch. Across the road is the covered morning market selling everything from fresh fish, vegetables, freshly grilled chicken to beachwear and toys.

The fabulous fine sandy beach is supervised by lifeguards in the summer season; the tram terminus; All the main fish restaurants, brasseries and cafes - some overlook the beach, with sea views west to the setting sun. A pizza restaurant, freshly made icecream, a bakers and a fine butcher (just around the corner from the centre) - everything you will need for a wonderful holiday.

The amazing palaces, castles and gardens of Sintra are only 10 minutes drive, or at weekends you can take an original 1904 electric tram from the beach to Sintra. The neighbouring village of Colares produces a well respected wine and you can tour the cellars.

There is something for everyone here!
