Style Notes

This is a very bright and light house, fresh in the summer and warm in autumn and winter. The kitchen and dining room have Portuguese tiles on the walls. All bedrooms have at least one colorful wall.

We love the outdoor space, drenched with Portuguese sun and with tropical plants and a modern swimming pool.

Olá from Portugal! We are a family with two kids and love to host other families for their vacations. Horizonte Mar is perfect for family vacations, it is one minute away from the beach, and very close to Ericeira and Mafra, Sintra, Cascais and Lisbon are minutes away! In the summer for surfing families Ericeira has several levels of difficulty and waves for all, withe sandy beaches are wonderful, and you can walk or bike from the house located on the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park and enjoy the nature that surrounds the house. In Autumn and Winter the temperatures rarely go below 10ºC and there are plenty of sunny days! The house has a great fireplace and is full equipped with heating devices for the cooler days. All year long there are donkey and horse back riding nearby. Came and visit us with friends or family!

Lucilia was very friendly and there to meet us when we arrived. Unfortunately we'd wanted to go horse riding and the local place was closed, Palomino's. I would recommend booking any activities a few days in advance.

We were here as two families of 4 and had an incredible stay. The whole property is perfectly situated and Lucilia helped us with a lot of the details. We were blown away by how beautiful this part of Portugal is and look forward to our next stay.

Sintra, Portugal

Capital do Romantismo

Known as the capital of Romanticism, Sintra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site just 30 minutes west of Lisbon. Filled with rich history, splendid palaces, exciting museum collections, and scenic vistas overlooking the sea, this spectacular hilltop town has an abundance of charm. After imagining themselves as knights and princesses at the city’s three fairytale palaces, kids will delight at the thousands of toys for all ages on display at the Sintra Toy Museum. Don’t miss the local beaches and sunset from Cabo da Roca.
