Serra da Arrabida house + pool

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Azeitao, Setubal District, Alentejo
The house is set in about 4 acres of semi-wild garden, made up of cork trees, oaks, olive trees, pines and fruit trees. In terms of peace, it's great.

The house is decorated much in the style of the region. It is divided into 3 floors; downstairs there's a kitchen/dining room, which gives onto an area shaded by olive trees where people inevitably eat in the Summer months. The kitchen is fully equipped and all-electric. On the floor above, there's the sitting room, the major bedroom and the bathroom (shower only). On the top floor, there’s a double and a twin bedroom and a small loo.

Just by the house there's a swimming pool (6 x 4 metres)... not Olympic, but perfect for cooling down, but is not fenced (so unsuitable for young children). There's also plenty of shade - terraces or olive trees. There's a BBQ too,...

We have recently returned from our third visit to this lovely house in the beautiful Serra Arrabida, and as we rarely visit places more then once, this is a compliment indeed! We originally stumbled across this property after visiting Lisbon and wanting to explore the...More

About the neighbourhood
The house is less than 4kms from the nearest village, Vila Nogueira de Azeitão, where you will find a reasonable range of shops, a bakery, a bank, post office and supermarkets. It also has excellent wine cellars (which you can visit). Wine, cheeses and a kind of small Swiss roll (tortas) are all specialities of the village. Nearby, there are a number of places to visit and there are tours of the Serra da Arrábida, boat trips to see dolphins and lots of beaches (which can get pretty crowded in summer, but you can beat the crowds by getting there early - the house is 10kms by road from the nearest beaches).For those who like to cook their own fish/seafood, buy from the markets in Setúbal or Sesimbra (although there’s usually excellent fish at the small market in Azeitão itself). Meat can... more
