Villa Akasia is an old farmhouse in Cascais, with ocean views, suitable up to 20 people maximum.

This is a simple property but still offers 6 spacious bedrooms, a private swimming pool heated on request, a garden, table tennis, and a tennis court in poor conditions and not suitable for regular players.

This holiday home is located 10 minutes away from Quinta da Marinha/Oitavos golf resort and the nearest beach is only 5 min away by car from the property, with a wide choice of bars and restaurants.

The beautiful Guincho beach, with its surrounding park, is highly recommended for beach holidays.
Along the coast, the choice of other beaches is endless, some famous for water sports activities, all within a 20 min. drive.

Villa Akasia welcomes you to Cascais!

Note: Please be aware that due to weather conditions, this area can sometimes be windy.

This property is located only 8 Km from Sintra Natural Park - Monte da Lua awarded in 2013 as the world's Leading Conservation Company.
Cascais and Sintra (patrimony of UNESCO) offer some of the best seaside bathing conditions and water-sports in Portugal, depending on the kind of beach you choose. A higher or lower exposure to the Atlantic Ocean means more or less crowded beaches and different water sports. We recommend the coast along Estoril for sheltered beaches and from Cascais/Guincho until Praia das Maçãs for harsher conditions.
Inside Quinta da Marinha resort you have access to an 18-hole championship golf course (by Robert Trent Jones) and just beside you have the Oitavos golf course (by Arthur Hills), an 18-hole course included in the top 100 courses in the world. In September 2011 Oitavos Dunes jumped 20 places up the list to be considered the 68th best course in the world and the second best in mainland Europe.
Inside the resort there are 10 tennis courts (two synthetic grass & eight in clay), 3 paddle courts, 3 squash/racquetball courts, sauna, gym, indoor swimming pool, restaurants and the Marinha Equestrian Centre, considered one of the largest and most well-equipped of the Iberian Peninsula.

  • “a perfect place for a group without fancy expectations”

    That villa is not really beautiful and it has seen better days but it is nice and cosy. We were a group of 12 adults and there would have been place for at least five more. The view and the location are perfect to explore the coast, to go surfing or hiking or to take the suburb train from Cascais to Lisbon. Plenty of things to do before you enjoy your sundowner on the terasse. As described in other reviews do not expect anything from that so called tennis place but there are clubs where you can play in short distance. In a nutshell: a perfect place for a group or a big familiy if you don’t have any facy expectations.

  • “Vacker utsikt, bra läge men låg standard och konstig rumsindelning”

    Villa Akasia ligger med vacker utsikt, bra pool och härlig balkong en knapp mil från Cascais. Nära till vackra stränder och sevärdheter. Bil är dock ett måste då trafikerad väg ligger precis bredvid huset vilket omöjliggör spontana promenader. Huset i sig höll en betydligt lägre standard än väntat. Dålig lukt i flera utrymmen, väldigt konstig rumsindelning som inte framgår av beskrivningen , ljud från djur som i ett rum höll de boende vakna från 04 am. Går inte att låsa toaletter och badrum varav vissa inte alls levde upp till förväntan av standard.

  • “The video and photos don’t reflect the reality”

    The villa is a old fashioned house and needs a strong reform. We couldn’t use the tennis court because there wasn’t one of the nets and the swiming pool was very dirty and nobody came to clean it during the week. The house is in a very windy area and it wasn’t comfortable to be outside.

  • “clean and great”

    We really enjoyed our Time in The villa . Everything was clean and there was a great offer of free Time possibilities (like Tennis, The Pool or other Games) and Kitchen utensils. Thank you for that.

  • “A Wonderful Experience- highly recommended!”

    This is a beautiful, well appointed and spacious villa in a glorious location. The views alone are worth 5 stars , especially at night. Paulo the Manager was absolutely brilliant- competent, very friendly and lovely to deal with. We were there as a family of 3 generations , spanning 4 -60 years old and everyone loved it- the wee ones wanted to live there ! Highly recommended.

  • “Perfect location for exploring Portugal coast”

    What a perfect location – 10 minutes from Guincho beach, 20 minutes from Sintra, 20 minutes from downtown Cascais (with an easy commuter train to Lisbon) and with many great places to explore close by. We were a group of 11 adults and teens and the house mostly worked very well for us – lots of open living space and a well-stocked kitchen, lovely deck and pool, a ping pong table that saw lots of action, and ample parking for 3 cars or more. The tennis court needs attention and we were disappointed not to find 4 racquets, and to find the court in poor condition. The bedroom layout includes several “railroad” style rooms, where you must go through one bedroom to access another, and one of the queen rooms doesn’t have a bathroom anywhere nearby and several of the bathroom showers are VERY SMALL. Rooms themselves quite nice but layout is a little complicated. Bunkroom in lower level (with full glass windows so lots of light) is terrific. We so enjoyed our stay. Definitely visit Praia da Ursa – a hike to a gorgeous beach – just up the road near Cabo da Roca. A highlight!

  • “Wonderful experience!”

    We stayed 2 weeks in August 2016 in this awesome villa. We were a group of 20 and everyone was very happy with the experience. The view is outstanding, the house is very comfortable, all details are well taken care of, and it is very well situated. The service of the villa manager is also very reactive whenever you have a question or need advices. We will most likely come back!

  • “Dejlig og velfungerende villa med masser af plads og en fantastisk beliggenhed”

    Vores familie på 14 har tilbragt en uge i dette dejlige hus. Alle har udtrykt stor tilfredshed med husets faciliteter. Værelserne store og lyse og fine fællesarealer. På den store udendørs terrasse med den fantastiske udsigt ud over havet blev de fleste måltider indtaget. Udendørs var såvel pool som tennisbane meget populære. Eneste minus er, at børn ikke kan bunde noget steds i poolen. Køkkenet meget velfungerende med rigeligt af alt service. Husets beliggenhed tæt ved havet og gode badestrande er ideel, kun kort til den flotte by Sintra og let adgang til Lissabon. Villamanager Pedro modtog os ved ankomst, og var i ugens løb meget behjælpelig med alt. Vi giver villaen vores bedste anbefaling.

  • “Licht und Schatten”

    Lage: perfekt Zimmer: sehr schön bis mittelmäßig Sanitärräume: sehr schön bis sehr eng Einrichtung: sehr schön Garten: sehr schön Tennisplatz: nicht bespielbar

  • “Enjoyable Villa for Families”

    A fantastic villa for our family group (older children). Great views, amazing tennis court and swimming pool. Lots of fun for everyone. The terrace and BBQ were especially good. The complete opening of the sliding glass doors onto the balcony was awesome. Lots to do and plenty of space. Pedro, the villa manager was outstanding. The supermarket in the little village close to the villa had everything we needed. The villa is in a lovely woodland setting and only a short drive to Cascais.

  • “Rossana”
