Well-known restaurants are in the unspoiled village nearby, and world-famous beaches are within a short driving distance.

About Anna Klebnikov

The villa was built by my grandmother in 1960. I spent every summer at the Quinta Cabo da Roca as a child along with my three brothers. We enjoyed hiking, picnicking, riding, tennis, swimming, exploring Moorish castles, visiting museums, shopping, fairs and local events--which we all still enjoy to this day! This is a treasured family home that we visit several times per year and which we want to share with the discerning traveler. It is a unique and unbelievably beautiful location.

What makes this villa unique

A caretaker (English speaking as well as Portuguese) living on the premises in a separate cottage ensures every comfort.

My husband and I booked the villa with another couple. This place is AMAZING! The house is spacious and comfortable with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The view is not to be believed-- we spent our time sunning ourselves on the marble terraces, cooking gourmet meals, and having cocktails while watching the sun go down over the ocean. Stunning Sintra and Cascais and other sights are all within an easy driving distance. The caretaker gave lots of helpful advice and the owner was quick to respond to any questions we had. All in all, a perfect vacation. We will be back!

The Villa is a magical place with views that are hard to believe are real. Ursa beach right across from the villa is truly one of the most amazing beaches we have ever seen. We enjoyed all the recommendations provided by the host - including lovely restaurants right near the villa. Our stay there will be a special memory for ever!

Hard to believe that it was a year ago that we had to leave magical Portugal, made possible by your sharing of your very special home and the gracious help you offered. As you promised, we were in "real" Portugal, not a resort.

We all loved your extraordinary Quinta, treating it as our own home, while enjoying and appreciating the privilege it was to stay there for 10 wonderful days while we explored and enjoyed Portugal and its truly gracious people.

We all enjoyed many hikes to the nearby cliffs, day trips to beaches, historic villages, palaces, castles, recommended restaurants, but coming home each to day to such a special place was the best. We took advantage of your suggested markets and were able to prepare delicious dinners and breakfasts and enjoy them with the magnificent views and the tranquility of your villa.

Your gate keeper, was welcoming, and as you promised, a very good cook. Our first dinner of his cod, was a perfect beginning as was the final evening on his terrace for a lovely glass of rose.

Jaime is another wonderful resource, and as promised, was there to greet us o our entry to Lisbon and take us to our rental car in Estoril. Later he picked up another friend and at 3AM was there to get us back to the airport, dropping off our rental car on the way in Estoril, and then returning the key later in the morning.

These two men were only the beginning of our experience with the generosity of the Portuguese

people. Time and again, everyone we had the opportunity to come in contact with, were exceptionally kind and thoughtful. There is so much of Portugal to see but would be hard to imagine anything more ideal than being able to come back again to your villa one day soon.

Thank you!

Still savoring my visit - extraordinary Quinta!

  • 5 of 5

I was delighted to spend two weeks at this breathtaking villa, extraordinary for its beauty of location and place as well as its graciousness, elegance, spaciousness and ease. The villa's beautiful garden and immediate surroundings offer a singular kind of quiet and beauty I've not experienced before; proximity to incredible vistas and wonderful towns (including hikes, beaches, easy train to Lisbon) create unique possibilities of exploration each day. The villa's interior is handsome and airy, enhanced with beautiful (and unimposing) artworks resonating with the culture of the country. The lovely and excellently maintained kitchen (a pleasure to cook in), dining room, family room, reading rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms convey the energy of a house much loved and cared for. I highly recommend this villa for couples, families, writing groups, colleagues, friends - the Quinta's remarkable, brilliant architecture (inside and out) allows for individual privacy while easily promoting collaboration and togetherness. The owner was accommodating, helpful and reachable throughout my stay - while there was no reason to request assistance, I was in excellent hands throughout. I hope very much to return!

when you book on these sites you can be misled by images and info that sugar coat. This is not the case. The views are something not to be believed. The spot is one you would only dream about. The house bares the grand nature of royalty.

This is heaven.

Unique magical place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two other couples came to this marvelous villa for some much needed R&R. It is a peaceful haven where the only sounds are the ocean and the birds. The view is pristine and spectacular on all sides. When we felt energetic, we explored the nearby Moorish castles, abandoned monasteries and the royal palaces in Sintra. We also took relaxed day trips to the university towns of Coimbra and Evora as well as Alcobaca and Fatima. We played golf and tennis at the superb Penha Longa and attended concerts and operas in Lisbon. The lovely unspoiled village of Azoia is 1/2 mile away and has some excellent restaurants when we did not feel like venturing out.

The villa itself is well maintained. It is a large house with more than enough room for the six of us. The owner was helpful and responsive and went out of her way to be accommodating. There is an English speaking caretaker who lives near by who was extremely helpful and courteous.

We can't wait to come back!!!
