Perks for the Parents

This modern rustic house with a pool is close to beaches and includes plenty of space to play with a small football pitch, gardens and a ping pong table. Kick back with peaceful decoration and let the kids explore. There are quiet spaces to chill out while watching the sunset, a tent for camping and a beautiful garden. Bedrooms are spread out and there is a lot of lounging room, making it ideal for a large family group or multiple families traveling together.

Why Kids Love it

This house is set up beautifully for older children but note that we do not recommend the property for children under 6. The beaches, the pool and the ping pong table are all great for kids. Just 8 km at Lagosteiros beach they can see a real dinosaur's footprint on a rock; Sesimbra, 10 km away, has boat rental and dolphin watching trips, while Albufeira Lake, 7km away, offers windsurfing, canoeing and kite surfing lessons for all ages.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week in the summer. There is plenty of parking. The pool and stairs are ungated; the pool is far from the house. The main stairs from the living room do not have a rail; there is a children’s bedroom on a mezzanine level accessed by stairs - again, it is not ideal for very young children as there are no stair gates. There are however children’s beds on the ground floor. Due to this set-up, we recommend this property for those with children aged over 6 or babies who are not yet crawling. Five bikes are available.

About the Location

The residence is in Aldeia do Meco, a village with restaurants, bars, supermarkets and bakeries 3km from Salamandras in the Setubal district of Portugal. It is 40 minutes by car from Lisbon and its airport and 45 minutes from the heart of Setubal itself. It is under 10 minutes’ drive to the nearest sandy beach. There is a superb bar on Meco beach with sunset parties every weekend on the summer. Car rental is essential for getting around.

Accommodation Details

The property has 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and is set up with a main house and a small house with kitchenette, bathroom and a single bed, just at the gates of the property. The main house includes 3 suites with double bed plus bathroom, a further bedroom with a double bed and 3 family bedrooms with a double bed and 2 single beds in each one. Two of these family bedrooms have a mezzanine level separating the double bed and the single beds. Note that one of these family bedrooms is at the top of the house; others are downstairs. There is a large open plan living-dining room, a TV room and a kitchen with a view of the ocean, Cascais and Sintra. Gardens include a pool, ping pong table and small soccer pitch.

Style Notes

Modern rustic. This beautiful property includes nature-inspired decor with plenty of driftwood objects and natural colors throughout. The owners restyled the property in 2015 and have created a restful haven with ocean views and space to relax. The deck includes a daybed where you can relax and watch the sunset, and there are several poufs around the pool where you can relax and enjoy the sun while kids play. We love the spacious open plan living area, with a long wooden table for a family feast, the living and dining areas under a thatched roof outside, and the serene bedrooms with tiled floors, wooden roofs and clean white walls.

Sesimbra, Portugal

One of Portugal's little secrets

Sesimbra, a traditional beach town with glorious beaches under an hour south of Lisbon, is one of Portugal's best kept secrets. Locals love diving in the clear waters, hiking/biking trails through the Serra da Arrabida and spying sea views from the Moorish castle at the top of the town. Enjoy fresh seafood, try watersports on the beach and don't miss the dinosaur footprints in the cliffs just north of Cabo Espichel.
