Set in the beautiful, historic, UNESCO protected mountain range of Sintra, Quinta Matalva is a spacious and private villa located in a secluded valley with pine forest backdrops and views of the sea. Quinta Matalva has three bedrooms in the main house and a further two in a cottage so it's perfect for a small group renting the main house only or a group of 10 who can rent the cottage too. The main house has a wide terrace which is ideal for barbecues, drinks and outside dining. Through a gate from this terrace are steps down to a private swimming pool with another terrace and sun lounges. From the main house, walk through a colonnade to the cottage which has a separate kitchen, sitting room and terrace with a dining area, ideal for anyone in the group requiring privacy such as a family with young children or grandparents. From the entire property there are superb views of the historic botanic gardens of Monserrate and terraces of oranges, lemons and fig trees. For more information and photos, visit: www.matalva.com.
