About the neighbourhood
Within 5 minutes walking distance of the villa is the Lido with its Olympic-sized swimming pool and water slide; a children's playground; Tennis courts and 5-a-side pitch. Across the road is the local market selling everything from fresh fish and vegetables to beachwear and toys. The fabulous fine sandy beach is supervised by lifeguards in the summer season. There are renowned fish restaurants, brasseries and cafes - some overlook the beach, with sea views west to the setting sun. The village has a bakery, butchers and chemist and a craft market in the summer - everything you will need for a wonderful holiday. The amazing palaces, castles and gardens of Sintra are only 15 minutes drive, or at weekends you can take an original 1904 electric tram from the beach terminus to Sintra. P...
