Excellent Family Villa
This is an excellent villa for a family. The large well-manicured rear garden and the lovely swimming pool makes an ideal space for enjoying games, barbecues, etc. The accommodation is clean, adequately equipped and furnished. Satellite TV, with UK and other English-speaking channels, adds to the enjoyment. The kitchen is well equipped with microwave, electric hob, oven, fridge, washing machine and dishwasher but one thing missing is an electric kettle for making a nice cup of tea. Of special mention is the large summer house - we called it the barbecue house - where there is picnicking furniture and a built-in barbecue of great quality. It is situated at the far rear of the garden next to the pool and when opened up with wide sliding doors, is an excellent 'second house' for holding get-togethers. A big attraction is the long stretch of beach about a mile away, Fonte de Telha, is accessible by car and local bus. Lisbon is about 10 miles away, and is definitely worth a visit, with many attractions too numerous to mention. To get into Lisbon, you have to cross the '25th April Bridge' across the Rio Tejo (River Tagus), which is quite an experience. It costs 1.65 euro at the toll to cross, but only in the direction of Lisbon. Queues going across the bridge to Lisbon can be long, especially at peak times. Bullfigting is performed about 10 miles away at Montijo and the town has a charming atmosphere. The atmospheric town of Sintra (15miles away) and the Lisbon district of Belem are both charming, with ambience to whet your appetite, and very worth visiting.
The owners of the villa, Maria and Fernando, are charming, friendly and helpful and they looked after our every need.

Along the coast between Setúbal and Sesimbra, the Serra da Arrabida stretches up. These chalky hills have the only surviving example of primitive Mediterranean vegetation. Tucked away in the heart of Arrábida's Natural Park, the formation goes back 180 million years. The soil and mild climatic features, considered the best in Portugal, have produced a lush vegetation rich in species.
The Arrábida Natural Park was formed in 1976 and covers an area of 10,800 hectares. Setúbal, Palmela, Azeitão, Sesimbra and the sea make up its boundaries. The countryside is hilly and we can find the Serra dos Gaiteiros, S. Luís, S. Francisco, Louro, Risco along with the highest hills, the Serra da Arrábida which stands at 499 metres high. This ends abruptly and cuts into the sea, providing a scene of picturesque beauty with the lush green vegetation and the chalk white face of the cliffs, such beauty which inspired poets like Sebastião da Gama.
On the coast, between the sandy beaches and clear water, up above, breeding grounds for birds of prey abound and one can also find a typical maritime flora which extends as far as the Serra do Risco, the highest coastal point of continental Portugal (300 metres above sea-level). In Creiro, around the Pedra da Anicha, an island traced above the sea leads us to the only zoological reserve of the Natural Park, named so because of the value of underwater plant species found there.
