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!

Thank you for your very kind review, it was great to meet you all and i'm pleased to hear that you have a great October break ( I think it was Schools October half term week for you )
Yes, i think the new restaurant is going to do very well, He was a waiter in the 1888 then in Buzio and i think it's given them a lot of incite.
Yes, We always greet our guests personally with a nice bottle of wine and a basket of fresh local goodies to help them start off their holiday, and will if you wish spend as much or as little time as you want pointing you in the direction of all the best places to eat and places to go.
Then of course we leave our guests in total peace till the end of their holiday, they are always given my ( ralph's ) personal mobile phone number which is answered 24hrs.
And if guests have any questions, need any help we are always happy to oblige.
Thanks again it was a pleasure to meet and we hope to see you again one day.
