Romantic cottage in Setubal
Built in 1937, recently restored and modernly equipped though maintaining its original style. Close to sandy beaches, surrounded by the woods of Arrábida National Park and only 30 minutes away from Lisbon! A breathtaking place to relax!

The romantic cottage is located in a very cozy hamlet named Castanhos, in Arrábida Natural Park, a place of great natural beauty with mountains and sea and only 27 km (30 minutes by car) from exciting Lisbon. For your confort, just outside Castanhos, less than 500 meters away, you will find a modern supermarket.

The village

Castanhos is part of Vila Fresca de Azeitão. A lovely place to walk around. Vila Nogueira de Azeitão is only two minutes away. It’s a traditional village, very well known for its wine production, its traditional pastry and cheese. There are 2 important wine producers - José Maria da Fonseca and Bacalhôa – that offer guided tours. Both have a delightful wine tasting.

Only 10 minutes away you will find the city of Setúbal. Here you can take the ferry to the famous Tróia Resort and Comporta beaches and eat an unforgettable grilled fish.

You are also close (15 minutes by car) to Sesimbra, very well known for its sea food restaurants, beach and Carnival Parade in February. Near to Sesimbra is the incredible beach of Meco. Protected by a high cliff it has an excellent clay for natural skin treatments.

And if you like golf: Azeitão has several golf courses, such as Quinta do Peru (5 minutes), Montado and Palmela Village Golf.

Some more remarks about nature and sports. You could make some excellent hikes through the mountains. And don’t forget that the beaches are only 15 minutes away! Diving in the blue Atlantic Ocean is a very popular sport in this region.

How to get there?

The train will take you to Lisbon in 25 minutes and is only 15 minutes away from Castanhos. You will enjoy crossing the famous Tagus river by the impressive red bridge "25 de Abril".

5/5 Excellent

Sweet stone cottage
We loved our stay In Casa Castanhos. Communication with Eric and Ana was excellent. Even though they were away during our stay, they stayed in touch and answered any questions we had. The cottage was well equipped and although chilly upon arrival, we were warmed by the wood stove and a heat pump in the bedroom. Situated in a small hamlet, we were only a short drive away to Azeitao proper. Highly recommend this property.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely short break
Terrific little property in a wonderful location, thoroughly recommended

5/5 Excellent

This is a very peaceful and comfortable cottage, located at the edge of a quiet village. It is located close to many of the attractions for this area (hiking, beaches, the city of Setubal) and also a great place to just relax and read.

5/5 Excellent

Delightful for couple
Cosy and pretty country cottage for two. It is well equipped and well cared for, and the bed is excellent. With a car it’s within easy reach of Lisbon and there is plenty to do locally. We found it thoroughly enjoyable.

5/5 Excellent
