With broad windows over the Atlantic and the local beach – the best urban beach in Portugal, according to tourist guides –, our house has everything you'll need to feel at home while on holidays.
Located just a few footsteps away from the main town square, the local shops and restaurants are even within viewing distance. The bakery is 200 meters away, the local market is 100 meters and the grocery store just 50. Anyone can enjoy their stay to the fullest without ever needing a car.
The nearest beach is almost unbelievable 3 minutes away on foot but there are others to the north or to the south just around 15min away and less crowded, one of them a known nudist spot.
As for the house, it is built on 4 interconnected floors: The basement with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a winter garden with natural lighting coming from the upper floor; the main floor with an additional 2 bedrooms and a bathroom; the social floor with a big living room area with american style kitchen and a WC; and finally the terrace with its amazing views over the ocean and the surrounding fishermen village which has a barbecue set up, a WC and a shower outside. All the bedrooms have big wall-to-wall closets.
The 3 main floors are heated and the kitchen is fully equipped with washing machines (laundry and dishes), gas stove and electrical oven. There is no air conditioning installed but the house is so well built that there's no need for it, the inside temperature never goes above 22/23C even on the hottest days of august. Also, because it's a coastal town, the Atlantic keeps the air fresh and the temperatures moderate both inside and outside.
Servicios y zonas comunes
Otros aspectos destacables
Apart from the breathtaking ocean vistas and sunsets you'll get from the house and village watching points, there much to see if you walk a bit around off the town center. The now famous Rota Vicentina (Vicentine hiking routes), can take you north, south or to the east in full hiking discovery mode, through the Natural Park that surrounds the area. If you're a bird watching fan you'll have photo opportunities abound to the north, on the cliffs where the storks make their nests. And If you walk the 2.5Km stretch to the north towards the fishing harbor, you'll also see an immense pre-historic dune ecosystem with dozens of plant species that exist nowhere else on Europe.
If you have a car or a motorcycle – but a bicycle would also work perfectly – and feel a bit more adventurous, you can drive or ride to the east for 40Km until you reach the amazing Barragem de Santa Clara (Santa Clara Dam), the biggest dam in the region, and go for a swim or a boat ride. But if you chose to go South-Southeast for the same 40Km you'll find the Monchique mountain range (0.9Km max altitude) and its peak Fóia with beautiful views over the atlantic all the way from Sines to Portimão in the Algarve.
