Zambujeira do Mar, Odemira, Beja District, Alentejo
Wonderful house overlooking the hills of Alentejo, only 15 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Zambujeira do Mar and around. Full privacy, a small swimming pool to cool off after an afternoon on the beach. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious living room. Patio with dining table. Surrounded by 2 acres of private land.
The small village of Casa Nova da Cruz (20 houses and 2 bars) is only 2 min. away and Sao Teotonio is 7 min. by car. There you find a well assorted supermarket, the Intermarche. Also in the neighbourhood (15 min. by car) you find an Aldi and a Lidl.
A perfect place to combine beach and relaxing around the house. A powerfull heater provides comfort in winter.
And a fireplace gives the place a cozy atmosphere.
But of course the summerevenings outside are the best. Eating on the patio with a view on the darkening...

Monte de Céu is aptly named. Set at the top of a hill with gorgeous views, it is also a stargazer's paradise. It is a calm and peaceful spot with little more than cows bells tinkling and birds chirping in the background. The pool is...More

About the neighbourhood
You will find only a few seaside villages along the coast between Lisbon and the Algarve and among those villages Zambujeira do Mar is one of the most attractive ones. Even though it is very small it has a variety of visitors and is not only family minded. The village itself is nothing special but there is a good choice of restaurants and bars. About an hour from the house you find the mountains of Monchique, very impressive. The Algarve offers shopping possibilities also an hour driving.
Getting around
You really need a car to get around. Public transport is scarce and the only village within walking distance only has two pubs. Cars can be rented both in Faro and Lisbon, not in the village where the train arrives (Santa Clara-Saboia). Busses to and from Lisbon and Faro have a stop in Sao Teotonio.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Faro Airport: 105.0 km
Railway: Santa Clara-Saboia: 20.0 km
Surrounding airports are Faro (1 h 15 min away), Lisbon (2 h 15 min) away and Sevilla (3,5 h away). It is possible to take a bus directly to Sao Teotonio from Lisbon, but there are only 3 busses a day. The same applies for the train between Lisbon and Faro, that stops in Santa Clara-Saboia. The train station is 25 minutes from the house.
