Casa do Mar is an independent house within a property situated in the highest point in a litle village, a typical Portuguese village up on Sintra Mountains. The village is situated in an unexplored area, peaceful and calm. Is located within Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
The litle village is the highest village of Sintra Mountains with privileged view over the landscape of the Natural Park. This is an ideal place for travellers who are looking for a place far from hassle, in contact with nature.
Its privileged location allows people to reach important touristic points in a short period of time, from the coast (4 km) to the city (35 km)
The area surrounded the property is ideal for lovers of nature: you can just walk by forest’s paths or, for people with a good level of fitness, ride a bike in the irregular landscape of the mountain (some bike circuits are close).
The house has a comfortable bedroom with a doubled bed. The living/dining area has an open and spacious kitchen.
The living area has a sofa that can be used as a single or double bed. The kitchen is fully equipped (coffee machine, juice machine, dish-washer, washing and dry machine, fridge, microwave-machine, etc.).
The house is comfortably/totally equipped for a pleasant stay.
The house is located on one of the highest point of the property, with a stunning view over the sea and Sintra’s landscape. Each corner of the garden has a unique view over the sea or the hills. Even when you open the front-door or windows of the house, you face the ocean or small villages at the distance. It has a spacious terrace, exclusive for guests, ideal to relax and enjoy the view.
The property has two dogs and two cats.
The garden is divided in two areas, connected by a gate, both with barbecues. One of the gardens is exclusive for guests; so in case you have a well behaved pet, you could bring it with your family. The second garden is shared with the owners, include a swimming-pool with view over the coast (from Praia das Maças to Ericeira), Sintra Mountains (Palacio da Pena e Castelo dos Mouros) and some typical villages.
All water, used at the property (houses, swimming-pool, etc.), is supplied by an old mineral water spring inside the property. Sintra is also known by its mineral water fountains and springs, where people that live in big urban areas/cities come to supply themselves with fresh mineral water.
The pool is cleaned by a system of copper electrodes in order not to alter the properties of the mineral water and to avoid skin problems/allergies nowadays more common because of the excessive use of chloride to treat water.
The house is ideal for couples or families up to three. For bigger groups, you have the possibility of renting another house with identical characteristics, inside the same property.
