Owner Location Comment
The villa is ideally situated in a rural setting, at the foot of the Sintra hills, by the luxurious Penhalonga resort. Beautiful Guincho beach, cosmopolitan Cascais and Estoril are only 6km away. This is an ideal location for nature lovers, being in the Sintra-Cascais protected National Park where building is very restricted. There is good walking, with an abundance of wild flowers, birds and animals. Yet the motorway is only 4km away, making Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra accessible in under 30 minutes.
With a large private swimming pool, beautiful grounds in a 3000m2 private estate, close to the beach and the many attractions of Cascais, Lisbon and Sintra, Quinta de Santo Antonio offers an ideal setting for the perfect holiday. Restoration from an historical ruin finished in 2010, and we are now ready to welcome our first guests in splendour!
The Penhalonga luxury resort which borders the villa provides a 5 star hotel, 2 golf courses, luxury SPA, horseback riding, tennis, bars and restaurants.
Sintra, a world heritage site with its castle, palaces and gardens set in lush vegetation and enjoying ravishing views is a lovely 15 minute car drive across the mountain.
Locally, there is a huge choice of the latest films in original language with over twenty screens in four local cinema complexes reachable within 10 minutes, as are two attractive shopping centres. The summer brings international festivals; classical music and ballet in Sintra, jazz in Estoril and fireworks in Cascais.
Less far in the other direction is the coastal resort of Cascais, where you will find superb beaches, restaurants, night-life and shopping, as well as a charming old town with rewarding site-seeing.
Lisbon is half an hour away, and with easy access to the motorway system a number of other world class cultural and historic sites make an enjoyable day trip. Lisbon boasts world heritage sites, and a rich cultural, culinary and night life.
The motorway network puts the Knights Templars’ castle and chapels at Tomar and Batalha within an easy day trip, as well as the ancient university town of Coimbra.
