A retro design villa with a cinema room plus indoor and outdoor swimming pools, looking out to the ocean between Cascais and Sintra, perfect for family holidays.

Villa Azoia on the Lisbon Coast has 5 bedrooms and it’s quirky and stylish vintage interiors offer a cosy and relaxing atmosphere for family holidays. The region has an excellent range of sports and leisure amenities to choose from.

Built in 1995 the villa has mahogany floors and ceilings, polished cement walls, panoramic windows and wooden shutters, creating a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. There is also a spacious cinema room with projector available for guests to use – this room opens onto the pool terrace and garden to one side and to the other side, onto to the indoor plunge pool with swim jets. The rear terrace has a built-in barbeque and fire pit and is a great space for outdoor meals or just chilling with a book. Some design pieces to note at Villa Azoia include a glass cabinet by Siza Vieira and a sliding separator (serving hatch between kitchen and dining room) painted by Pedro Proença.

The property is set amongst 2,500 sq metres of all-fenced-in organic lawn garden bordered by colourful shrubs, just bellow the Sintra mountain range with its cooler microclimate and enjoying dramatic views over Cabo da Roca (the most westerly point in continental Europe) and the Atlantic Ocean.

The charming villages of Almoçageme and Colares nestled between the Sintra Mountains and the coast, offer a range of artisan’s shops, fresh vegetable stalls and restaurants to choose from; whilst Sintra’s verdant and lush scenery is dotted with romantic palaces here and there, some open to the public. This is also a vine-growing region; so make sure to try some of the local wine labels.

Family beaches nearby include Praia Grande and Praia das Maças and these also feature a selection of seafood restaurants. One of our favourites, “Piscinas” is located at the village of Azenhas do Mar sitting on a dramatic cliff head position and it’s a not-to-be-missed experience.

For more active guests there are numerous golf courses nearby (Penha Longa, Estoril and Oitavos to name just a few) as well as tennis and riding facilities nearby. Windsurfers and kite surfers will be enticed by the world-famous Guincho beach hotspot just a few minutes drive south from the villa and surfers by Ericeira beach, a little further north.

Other attractions in the area include the Casino do Estoril that inspired Ian Fleming to write the first of his 007 books and a world-class Marina at Cascais.

WARNING NOTES: The pool surround has an unprotected drop down to the lawn garden of approx. 1,20m and there are others less prominent garden drops, so young children need to be supervised.
