Holidays with friends
We rent a very nice Holiday House with swimming pool , 500 m from one of the nicest beaches in Portugal and 30 km from Lisbon
You can just enjoy the house with the pool, hang out on the beach,taste very good and tipical portuguese food in one of the many restaurants near the house and if you like horses - have a ride at sunset over the cliffs
The house is situated in the small village of Meco near the Atlantic about 500 m from the beach.
It is the only one of the five houses with little garden around the house. You have a very nice few over orange-trees to your left. the big terrace invites you for a nice barbeque at the end of the day.
The village lives mostly from the local tourists, there are no hotels and when the season is over, people like to visit Meco because of the good restaurants and to have a walk on the beach. The beach of Meco got famous in the 70ies as one of the first nudist beaches, today everybody does as he likes and Meco was “discovered” by the Lisbon high-society and artists. During the summer-season there is a quite busy night life in the village but our house lies completely quiet and only who likes to visit the centre will notice. Fresh vegetables you can buy from our farmer next to the house and some local women make fresh bread over the open fire. In the village you have everything you need, pharmacy, bank, little shops as well as fresh fish 6 days a week. If you do not feel like cooking, order some fine dishes from the next restaurant and enjoy it on our big terrace.
The house is part of a little compaunt of five houses. There are 3 rooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipted kitchen, a living room with an open fire-place and a very nice veranda where you can enjoy the green surroundings ......
You will find all infrastructure in the little village Alfarim and Meco.
Meco got famous because of his beautiful beaches and lots of Restaurants where you can enjoy real Portuguese food .........
End of the day at the beach September
"Bandeira AZUL 2009"
Meco was given the "Blue Flag" for excellent water quality. If you click at the Link: http://www.abae.pt/bandeira/ba07/PBA2007.pdf you will find all the beaches in Portugal with the Blue Flag and under the Sesimbra area one of the three beaches with a blue flag is MECO.
If you feel for a longer walk to the beach you can try one of the pathes in the wood:
You have a lot of opportunities to get to know Portugal and its people .....
(click on the map please)
Sesimbra was once a fishing-village, today you will still find the old center, but along the coast you will also find the sins of many years of uncontrolled construction- activities. Never the less the bay of Sesimbra and the beach is very nice (almost no waves). During high season you should avoid going there at weekend`s - you will find no place to park and hardly a place on the beach, during the whole months of July/August Sesimbra is "overcrowded".
Portinho da Arrabita - natural ressort and opportunity to go on hiking or rent a boat to have a look at the coast, about 30 Min from the house
the old summer residence for the kings and queens of Portugal - 50 km
with its beaches, restaurants, Casino, Golf Courts... 40 km
Lets have a walk in the nerrow streets of busy Lisbon ......
Enjoy the special flair of Lisbon, old and charming ....... but also with a new and modern face and a night life that never ends.........
......so dont close your door to your next Holidays in Portugal
