Description générale

  • Résidence principale
Modern house in Penedo, a hilltop village very close to the sea. Situated in the middle of the Sintra National Park yet less than 40 minutes by car from the center of Lisbon.
There is one cafe and restaurant in the village. Grocery shops and more restaurants are within walking distance in the next door village of Almoçageme.
Home to a ginger cat.

Please note that the house is not suitable for children as there are too many dangerous hazards such as the unfenced swimming pool, unfenced 7 meter well and unfenced garage roof top and terraces.

Besoins et Animaux

  • Mes animaux
  • Nombreuses plantes
  • Potager
  • 2 chats
We have a single ginger cat called Gato and feed a couple of outdoor cats, quite a few plants to water (in the summer). The cats are fed kibble and some wet food every day. They will tell you when they want it! He sleeps in the house overnight and roams the garden or seeks sunny spots in the house during the day. We do not have or need a litter tray.
He was a stray cat that adopted us. He is a friendly cat that likes to play and follow you around. But we do have to stop him scratching the leather furniture and keep other cats out of the house. For these reasons, we would like someone to be there every night to keep the cat company.
The plants are close to the house and a hose is available. (no watering required in winter)
There are wood fires for heat and hot water from electricity. You will need to be able to light a wood fire every night to keep warm as we do not have central heating.

We are in a small village with views to the coast near the historic city of Sintra.
The village is quiet and home to both locals and expats, our house is in the old village but a modern build. There is one cafe and restaurant in the village, Refugio do Cicista. Grocery shops and more cafes and restaurants are a 15-minute walk away in the next-door village down the hill. There are beautiful walks in the forest or down to the coast.
The roads are narrow and winding and a car is recommended. There is space to park in our garage. We live in a hilly area and have lots of stairs in the house so it is only suitable for the fit and able. In the winter we use the fireplace in the cosier upstairs mezzanine which does mean carrying wood up two flights of stairs. The open plan living room is lovely and warm on a sunny day. Both South and East facing sides of the house are glass. This makes downstairs impossible to heat at night. You will need to bring warm jumpers and footwear in the winter months.
Cascais and Sintra train stations with access to Lisbon are a 20-minute drive away (or 403 bus) or a 45-minute uber ride to LIsbon centre is around 30 euros.
45 minutes to Lisbon airport

Historical Sintra is a few kms away and has five beautiful palaces and gardens to explore. Lisbon is also close, Cascais and Estoril are nearby, great walking in the hills and coast, some great waves for surfing very close by.
Weather is a little cooler than Lisbon because we are so close to the Atlantic
