Villa da Encosta is a typical Portuguese villa for 8 persons, located in a beautiful and peaceful village, in Lisbon outskirts. This 2-story property comes with a lot of character, showcasing vintage furnishings and flooring that paint a picture of the Portuguese culture.

At guests´ disposal are 4 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room and a cosy living room with fireplace. The suite has a balcony with a small table that provide guests with a wonderful view where nature, peace, and quiet are imperial.

On the exterior, a large private swimming pool 6 x 12 m, and a massive garden, deliver the so desired relaxation, whereas the outdoor dining area and the built-in barbecue complement this charming villa, where the family gatherings are set to take place under the delightful Portuguese weather.

Villa da Encosta is located 3 km away from the beautiful town named Sesimbra, once a fishing village turned into a popular holiday destination with glorious beaches and superb seafood restaurants. Serra da Arrábida with an incredibly scenic drive and Castelo the Sesimbra, a castle built in the 11th century, are worth paying a visit.

Villa da Encosta awaits your arrival!

  • Overall this house was a great option for our family gathering of seven people. The location was great to enjoy local beaches, Seseimbra, and Lisbon. The house shows it’s age and needs some upgrades (kitchen, bathrooms), but it met our space needs (lots of space to dine outdoors and pool). There were a couple issues: hot water boiler tripped a couple times (but was quickly reset by property manager); tiles in pool can be a little rough in areas; beds were very firm; and road just leading up to property requires a good vehicle to properly navigate. Overall, our family had a great time in Portugal. The view from the house is great.

    Date of arrival – 6 August 2022

  • Situation excellente, villa et piscine cossues très agréables, cependant, compte tenu du prix, l’équipement devrait être parfait, ce qui n’est pas le cas : 2 chasses d’eau défectueuses, lave vaisselle capricieux , batterie de cuisine à changer, literie de la chambre à 2 lits métalliques à améliorer, manque plancha électrique.
    Détail : nous n’avons jamais réussi à éteindre l’éclairage extérieur pour admirer totalement le ciel étoilé qui était magnifique.
    Cela mis à part, maison parfaite pour de vacances en famille.

  • “Fantastic villa and garden”
    Fantastic cozy villa with a beautiful garden and a lot of charm and close to various beaches within 20 min.

  • “We had a really good time at the villa”
    Overall we had a really good time at the Villa Encosta. The house was totally clean and there is more than enough space for 6 people. The owner, who rented it the first time this year, was really friendly and we had a good talk. Future guests should know about the way to the house, because its very steep and slippery. 4×4 car would be recommended for inexperienced drivers. Also the neighborhood is a little bit noisy because of the many dogs which are barking a lot. The kitchen is big, so we were able to cook all together. The equipment of the kitchen is well stocked. The interior of the house is a little bit older and some parts of it could be repaired or replaced. Nevertheless we really enjoyed staying there and had a great time sitting on the terrace. When we had problems during our stay, someone came immediately to fix it.

  • “Beautiful Villa in Sesimbra”
    The house is beautiful with lost of space, padios and a good pool. The house is a bit older, but everything is well kept. Everywhere you`ll find explanations about in English and french (for the dishwasher etc). WiFi is a bit weak and limited in volume. The driveway up to the house is a challenge and really should be done (cemented or something), our Renault Kadjar had a really hard time reaching the top. We had a great stay and the owner and house manager were very kind and welcomed us with bottles of wine. Can recommend. The drive to restaurants in the village is about 10 minutes by car.

  • “Belle villa entourée de nature”
    August 2019 Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cette villa. Propriétaire très sympathique. Vue imprenable sur le château de Sesimbra. Les 2 terrasses sont agréables. Idéal pour une grande famille. Attention : l’accès n’est pas facile (chemin chaoteux).

  • “Superbe vue !!!!”
    Malgré un accès difficile, la surprise de la vue est superbe. La maison est parfaitement agencée. On s’y sent comme chez soi ! Notons juste quelques petits défauts à améliorer : ménage de milieu de séjour mieux organisé, et un petit souci de capricorne à régler dans le plafond du salon. Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de ce séjour dans cette très belle villa ! Marina ainsi que le propriétaire dont des gens très chaleureux et aux petits soins avec nous. Merci encore pour votre gentillesse !
