Lovely short break
Terrific little property in a wonderful location, thoroughly recommended
This is a very peaceful and comfortable cottage, located at the edge of a quiet village. It is located close to many of the attractions for this area (hiking, beaches, the city of Setubal) and also a great place to just relax and read.
Delightful for couple
Cosy and pretty country cottage for two. It is well equipped and well cared for, and the bed is excellent. With a car it’s within easy reach of Lisbon and there is plenty to do locally. We found it thoroughly enjoyable.
Calme et sérénité !

Une maison traditionnelle dans un hameau tranquille
Nous avons passé 8 jours très agréables dans cette maison, fraîche aux heures les plus chaudes, bien conçue avec les 2 petites cours, l'une pour y prendre les repas et y faire des grillades, l'autre pour la sieste dans le hamac.A deux pas de Azeitao et non loin de la plage de Portinho ou des promenades en Arrabida ( comme à partir de Picheleiros)
Thank you for staying in our cottage, Marcel & Irène! We understand you had a good time in Castanhos. We hope to see you again soon as we are still trying to improve the house to make your stay even more comfortable. For example a "bicycle-rent" opened recently close to Casa Castanhos and we now have a guide at your disposal to show you around in the Arrábida-mountains for some breathtaking views.
Cozy country house
Built in 1937, recently restored and modernly equipped though maintaining its original style. Close to the beach, surrounded by the woods of Arrábida National Park and only 30 minutes away from Lisbon! What a breathtaking place to relax...
Built in 1937, restored now and modernly equipped though maintaining its original style, this house is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day after a visit to Lisbon. The lovely view from the backyard will make you feel close to nature.
This romantic cottage is located in a very cozy hamlet named Castanhos, in Arrábida Natural Park, a place of great natural beauty - mountains and sea - only 27 km (30 minutes by car) from Lisbon. Just outside Castanhos, less than 500 meters away, you will find a modern supermarket.
Castanhos is part of Vila Fresca de Azeitão. A lovely place to walk around and Vila Nogueira de Azeitão is only two minutes away. It’s a traditional village, very well known for its wine production - the oldest portuguese red wine "Periquita" is made there - and great traditional pastry and cheese. There are 2 important wine producers - José Maria da Fonseca and Bacalhôa – that offer guided tours. Both have a delightful wine tasting.
Only 10 minutes away you will find the city of Setúbal. Here you can take the ferry to the famous Tróia Resort and Comporta beaches and eat an unforgettable grilled fish.
You are also close (15 minutes by car) to Sesimbra, very well known for its sea food restaurants, beach and Carnival Parade in February. Near to Sesimbra is the incredible beach of Meco. Protected by a high cliff it has an excellent clay for natural skin treatments.
And if you like golf: Azeitão has several golf courses, such as Quinta do Peru (5 minutes), Montado and Palmela Village Golf.
Some more remarks about nature and sports. You could make some excellent hikes through the mountains. And don’t forget that the beaches are only 15 minutes away! Diving in the blue Atlantic Ocean is a very popular sport in this region.
The train will take you to Lisbon in 25 minutes and is only 15 minutes away from Castanhos. You will enjoy crossing the impressive Tagus river by the equally impressive bridge "25 de Abril".
