This property has a private sun terrace with a heated swimming pool, a garden, a front deck with breath-taking views and an interior patio for total privacy to relax in. An exquisite clean design where concrete, glass windows and wood decks blend perfectly. THE SAND with its iconic mid-century modern classics is a never ending "art project". The suspended fireplace and heated floor make it irresistible throughout the year and ideal for off season breaks. This fully equipped house has 3 bedrooms accommodating 6 people and only one hour from Lisbon International Airport.

THE POOL
On top of the house lies a sun terrace with a stunning private heated swimming pool. The concrete pool was finished with aqua bright onyx for an exquisite look and feel. This spacious terrace has an elevated position to ensure maximum privacy to sunbathe and relax. From here you can watch the sunset while hearing the sound of the ocean facing the green crops field and the Arrabida Mountains. The controlled temperature pool allows night swimming under the starry sky.

THE GARDEN
The concept of the garden is to merge with the surrounding territory, through the choice of native species. The land is sculptured like a sand dune, sprinkled with typical beach species that creates an effortless unpretentious landscape. 

BEACH & SURROUNDINGS
The house is a few meters away from the beach which has been awarded the best in Portugal for many years for its water quality and clean silky sand. The beach is a long sand line that can provide great privacy if that is what you are looking for - the perfect place to get away from the crowds and get into the wild but with the advantage of the nearby excellent restaurant Sal nestled.

Your 5 minute walk to the beach is a true countryside experience. The property sits in front of a very large crop field ideal for long walks or running. A few kilometres away are small towns like Comporta and if you want to go back in time visit the Palafitic dock - this old fishermen pier is unique in the whole of Europe and despite its fragile look has lasted for decades and really is worth seeing.

10 things you may not know about Portugal

1. In the early 18th Century the English turned to Portugal to supply them with wine on account of them fighting a war with France. Wine however could not last the voyage without going off so was fortified with brandy. The beverage thence became known as Porto [or port]. Also over half the world’s cork production is sourced from Portugal.

2. It was first established as a country in the 12th Century and has had the same defined borders since 1139 making it the oldest nation in Europe.

3. The world’s only ‘international’ zipline stretches between two villages - one in Portugal and the other in Spain. Creator of the ‘límite zero’ David Jarman said "two villages in two countries separated by a river 150 metres wide – a zipline just seemed obvious to me”!

4. Portugal is famous for its pastry making. Pastéis de nata is one of the most popular and were first made in the 17th Century when monks used leftover egg yolks from starching their habits to create sweet cakes and pastries. These were sold to passers by outside the monasteries to generate a little extra revenue.

5. The world record for the largest dining table was set when around 16,000 guests were served lunch at a five kilometre long table on the Vasco da Gama bridge. The event was staged by a washing liquid company that promised to do the subsequent washing up using a mere litre of its new product!

6. Portugal’s weather is known as the hottest in Europe, with nearly 3000 sunny hours per year.

7. The Anglo Portuguese alliance is the oldest in the world first ratified as a treaty in 1373 and solidified as a mutual alliance in 1386.

8. The shrine of Fatima is a popular pilgrimage spot for Christian communities and in terms of volume of visiting pilgrims it is second only to Rome in Europe. Fatima receives four to five million pilgrims a year.

9. From 1808 to 1821, and after Napoleon invaded the country the capital of Portugal was Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

10. Portugal saw the first ever flight of a hot air balloon. In 1709 a Brazilian priest elevated himself four meters above the ground in front of King John V and the Portuguese court in Lisbon. However, at that time the notion of a flying man was so preposterous that the priest was accused of witchcraft and consequently persecuted!

 

 

The Home Escape THE SAND Testimonials

Happy memories 

New Year 2014

Great time, beautiful place. Happy memories x

The Reid family - THE PAVILION

Great design, tasteful interior

Wow! That’s what we thought when we looked at the pictures in the web, and it was Wow! Again when we arrived they look as they do on the photos. Great design, tasteful interior. At the same time cosy and comfortable. Hosts gave us a warm welcome. They show up quickly if you need something, without being obtrusive. - October 2015

Bernd and Christine - THE LOOKING GLASS

Seaside Paradise

Portuguese paradise. Ten minute walk to a sparkling clean and uncrowded beach and easy access to the small town for shopping and dining. The house itself is tastefully appointed with a homey warmth, no details were spared, including cozy blankets everywhere, indoor and outdoor dining spots, pool toys, beach towels, fully equipped kitchen and so much more. The roof top pool was perfect for post-beach/pre-dinner cocktails!  We had reserved bikes that were waiting in the drive on arrival, arranged for a massage therapist to visit the house for massages, and helped with difficult restaurant reservations in Lisbon. The house is perfectly situated for a family vacation, enough community space for everyone to gather but then also enough individual space for each to have time alone. 

We will return!
