Description

Two-room seafront apartment in the historic fishing village of Sesimbra with balcony - and unobstructed views - onto the Atlantic Ocean. Beach access right across the road from front door and free indoor private parking.

This apartment is very special and It's been our family vacation home for the last 25 years. The flat is "on top of the Sea", as the portuguese expression goes, which just about captures the feeling of laying back on the balcony with your feet up, a cool drink in your hand, looking at the turquoise Sesimbra sea beneath the most striking sunsets in beautiful yellows, pinks and greens.

After having breakfast on the balcony with your eyes on the Atlantic, get both your morning walk AND food supplies with a visit to the Fisherman's and open-air Farmers market, in the historic village center. Then have fun cooking the best produce and seafood you can get your hands on in the open kitchen (Miele equipped), where you NEVER have to stop looking at the ocean, even as you wash the stone-fruit or grill the vegetables you just bought. Sesimbra is, for me, about living a simpler, slower, richer life, being connected to nature from your first dive in the Sea to that smokey grilled sea bass lunch in a little place by the sea. Or that late-afternoon glass of refreshing white wine from the Azeitão wine country 10 minutes away. (Or scuba diving, or sunbathing on one of the many deserted beaches in the area, or dinosaur fossil sightseeing, etc..) And its about sharing this special place with those you make us happy.

Sesimbra is a quaint little fishing village that has somehow managed to maintain its refreshing simpleness, its quietness, the slow mood of its cafes and connection to the Sea and Country that surround and sustain it. Sesimbra is on the edge of the Serra da Arrabida Eco Park, to the east, and the Cabo Espichel Protected Area to the west. Its Sea, in turn, was declared a special marine reserve and its fishing carefully protected. Nature is valued here, which is why the area's produce, dairy and seafood taste like something of the past that is very precious, of the past.

The natural enclave that is the bay of Sesimbra, with its scenic games of light and shadow on the mountain rocks and its sunsets will forever be its crowning jewel. But the medieval Castle and two sea fortresses (one on the main beach and another near the harbor), the mannerist and baroque churches and the gorgeously rich Portuguese tiles that cover Sesimbra's proud little houses are gems that only enhance and never take from its natural wonder.

No more than a 10 minutes car ride away to the east is the Azeitão wine country (you must try the local take on "cottage" cheese and little "Azeitão" cheese!) and its old, old town centre, where you can visit beautiful wine makers and their palaces, while 10 minutes in the opposite direction will take you to stunning desert beaches for miles and miles and the dramatic Cabo Espichel.

We have a private garage which you are always free to use, and so renting a car from Lisbon is pretty easy. So is getting there, with a highway taking you most of the way and a well paved road with regular signage taking you, in a straight line, down to Sesimbra.

There is also a direct bus from downtown Lisbon.

Alternatively, I can also drive you to Sesimbra and back for 45 euros each way.

I'm a lawyer (I deeply apologise...) from Lisbon who has spent his months of summer freedom and every weekend he can find in between diving, walking, sunbathing, riding, eating, drinking and in every other way exploring the wonderful Sesimbra coastline.
