The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
The location - a genuinely unspoilt farming village - is called Azoia and located above Cabo da Roca, overlooking the ocean; in an area where you can visit historical places, villages and towns, rich in works of art, from which you can easily reach in a 25 minute drive either the towns of Sintra, Estoril or Cascais, the well known fishing resort town, as well as several beaches and golf courses. The village is hanging on the wooded hill of the Serra de Sintra, also known as Serra da Lua 'The Moon Mountain;' The coast is 1.2 Km away and offers spectacular scenery with Cabo da Roca (most western point of Continental Europe on a 140 m high cliff) and big sandy beaches (magnificent Ursa beach (ca. 30 Min. walking distance); Adraga beach (10 min drive) was ranked as one of the ’20 perfect European beaches’ by the Sunday Times; Guincho beach) partly stretching out below cliffs.
There are several golf courses within 10 km radius, 6 full length golf courses are within 20 min drive. These include Penha Longa which is only 15 minutes away, the famous Estoril Golf Club, Quinta da Beloura near Sintra and Clube de Campo at Belas, north of the Royal Palace at Queluz. Next to Penha Longa are the practice facilities of the Academia International de Golf. In Cascais you have the Quinta da Marinha Golf Club and the Quinta da Marinha Oitavos Club (10-15 minutes drive). Visitors are welcome everywhere.
In the 19th century the town of Sintra became the first centre of European Romantic architecture. Ferdinand II turned a ruined monastery into a castle where this new sensitivity was displayed in the use of Gothic, Egyptian, Moorish and Renaissance elements and in the creation of a park blending local and exotic species of trees. Other fine dwellings, built along the same lines in the surrounding serra , created a unique combination of parks and gardens which influenced the development of landscape architecture throughout Europe.The cultural landscape of the Serra and the town of Sintra represents a pioneering approach to Romantic landscaping that had an outstanding influence on developments elsewhere in Europe.The Royal Palace is undoubtedly the dominant architectural feature of Sintra, situated in the centre of the town.The Pena Palace, high on a peak in the Serra, is a work of pure Romanticism.
