A perfect place to combine beach and relaxing around the house. A powerfull heater provides comfort in winter.
And a fireplace gives the place a cozy atmosphere.
But of course the summerevenings outside are the best. Eating on th...

About the neighbourhood
You will find only a few seaside villages along the coast between Lisbon and the Algarve and among those villages Zambujeira do Mar is one of the most attractive ones. Even though it is very small it has a variety of visitors and is not only family minded. The village itself is nothing special but there is a good choice of restaurants and bars. About an hour from the house you find the mountains of Monchique, very impressive. The Algarve offers shopping possibilities, also an hour driving.
Getting around
You really need a car to get around. Public transport is scarce and the only village within walking distance only has two pubs. Cars can be rented both in Faro and Lisbon, not in the village where the train arrives (Santa Clara-Saboia). Busses to and from Lisbon and Faro have a stop in Sao Teotonio.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Faro Airport: 105.0 km
Railway: Santa Clara-Saboia: 20.0 km
Surrounding airports are Faro (1 h 15 min away), Lisbon (2 h 15 min) away and Sevilla (3,5 h away). It is possible to take a bus directly to Sao Teotonio from Lisbon, but there are only 3 busses a day. The same applies for the train between Lisbon and Faro, that stops in Santa Clara-Saboia. The train station is 25 minutes from the house.
