About this location

The Central Portugal 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

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!

"Great NewYear at Casal de Santa Maria"

We wanted a week away over New Year with a party of 13 aged 5-80 with plenty to do and see and the ability to eat out or in. the villa was perfect. the log fire kept us cosy in the evenings when the temperature dropped, but during the day there was plenty of space for the active to play a great selection of games provided, and for those who wanted to read in peace in the sunshine, it was great. Everyone is now converted to the joy of underfloor heating in the bathroom though! The villa was furnished with beautiful antiques but had all mod-cons where you need them with 2 fridges, 2 dishwashers, washing machine and wi-fi. Ralph was very helpful and knowledgable in the planning stages, and recommended two great seafood restaurants (Buzio and Nortada) for New Year's Eve and day. We wandered into the village in the mornings for coffee and delicious pastries, played on the beach and in the sea (only the youngest and hardiest!), visited Sintra and Lisbon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
