Ensconced in Wild Beauty

Colares, on the Atlantic coast of Portugal, is known for its ability to grow ramisco and malvasia grapes for wine – they’re rooted deep into the sandy soil, protected from the salty winds. At the foot of the Sintra Mountains, it’s an under-an-hour scenic drive to Lisbon, UNESCO Heritage Sintra or Cascais.

Within Colares is the whitewashed village of Azenhas do Mar, and just outside it is Casa das Arribas, perched on the cliffs and overlooking the craggy coast from Cabo de Roca to Ericeira. This villa in Portugal was built in the 1940s as a family estate by renowned architect Raul Lino, who has designed many historic buildings throughout the country, like the Moorish-style Casa de Santa Maria in Cascais or the neoclassical Tivoli Theatre in Lisbon.

The owners of Casa das Arribas carefully renovated the building and converted it into apartments. One of its dwellings is the Pool House. Detached from the main house and on the other side of the pool, the apartment has 5.5m ceilings and is flooded with light. Sea views are enjoyed from every window, but there’s nothing like staring out from the free-standing mahogany bathtub handmade from 100-year-old repurposed barrels that the owners found at a local winery.

The Pool House shares amenities with the rest of the property, and includes access to the 9’000 sqm garden, pool and tennis court. The wellness menu extends to a Finnish sauna, and a hot and cold plunge pool. 

It’s all to say that Casa das Arribas is the beach house of Portuguese summer dreams. 

Description

At 58 sqm, the Pool House is a perfect holiday casa for two, with a living and dining area, fully-equipped open kitchen and open bedroom with Coco Mat mattress and linens. With two sofa beds, up to four guests can stay comfortably. Curl up by the fireplace at night.

Order the morning breakfast basket with a variety of fresh local products and enjoy them on your private terrace just outside the front door, followed by a dip in the pool, just a few steps away. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The outdoor gym has high bars and a squad rack. Available equipment includes longbars with weights, barbells, tractor tires, kettlebells, TRX suspension straps,yoga mats, skateboards, or balancing boards.

Artisan personal care products are provided, based on various cold-pressed nut oils and produced by local cosmetics artisans of Oliofora.

The property also has an “Honesty-style” on-site self-checkout store, with a selection of local goods, and a vegetable garden that grows courgette, tomatoes, herbs, lettuce, and green beans cabbage and paprika (depending on the season). Pick-up is available.

Free high-speed WiFi, and parking. Shared washer and dryer on property.

WHAT’S AROUND

The Casa is located just outside the iconic village of Azenhas do Mar, 40km from Lisbon. Several beaches are within reach, including the little-known “home beach”, a five-minute walk from the west gate of the property. 

One of the unique benefits of this villa in Portugal is its proximity to Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais, Ericeria; all between 20 and 45 minutes by car. This gives you a chance to explore the jewels of each, while returning each day to privacy, space and nature. 

Rustic and straightforward local cuisine includes traditional Portuguese ‘tascas’ and seafood restaurants, or you can go more haute with the Michelin-starred destination restaurants in Sintra, Cascais and Lisbon. “Our all-time favorite for the fresh fish is right on the water’s edge by the natural pool in the bay of Azenhas do Mar,” say the owners.

Surfing and water sports are available within a 45-minute radius, with the closest surfable beach just down the road. Hikers can also enjoy a footpath along the cliffs, just beyond the west gate of the Casa.
