On offer here is a fantastic opportunity to make a smart investment into this beautiful part of the world with this wonderful property. Located in the village of Casais da Fonte Pipa, near Vila Verde dos Francos, a municipality in the district of Lisbon (roughly 1 hour north of the city), this excellent property features 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large lounge/diner, large kitchen, halls, main entrance, storage area, balconies, annexe, private swimming pool and a private garden area to soak up the warm sunshine in. With 9 rooms in total, this house offers potential owners plenty of room to be creative and put their own unique influence on the place. Thanks to the idyllic location, this property not only offers buyers a wonderful, spacious and comfortable place to live themselves, but is also a smart investment into the ever-growing Portuguese holiday rental market. This market is going through a golden age right now thanks to the emergence of direct rental sites such as Airbnb and booking.com and Portugal continues to be one of the most popular areas for tourism across the world. The house is perfectly positioned to be close enough to shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the breath-taking beaches (roughly 15 mins away by car) and areas of outstanding natural beauty that make this part of the world so magical. Casais da Fonte Pipa is not only a stunning place in its own right but is also a great base from which to explore the many other fantastic places Portugal has to offer such as Lisbon, Setubal, Porto and of course the famous Algarve. One other huge attraction in the holiday rental and residential markets is the fact the area is surrounded by countless sports and leisure opportunities such as the many nearby walking, cycling, water sports and fishing areas. Golf fans will also feel right at home with many excellent courses nearby including Guardian Bom Sucesso Golf and Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort. No discussion on sports in the Lisbon district would be complete without mentioning the fact that the city hosts two of the most iconic clubs in world football in Benfica and Sporting Lisbon, who compete in the Portuguese Super League, the home stadiums of both clubs are less than 50 mins away from the property. The area is also very well-connected transport wise both locally, by road and an extensive rail network, and internationally with Lisbon Portela Airport just 60km away, this is of course yet another huge plus point in the context of the holiday rental/commuter markets. Being so close to the coast, Lourinhã is also widely accessible by boat thanks to its proximity to the coast. ABOUT THE AREA Vila Verde dos Francos is a parish of the municipality of Alenquer, in western Portugal. The population in 2011 was 1,162, in an area of 28.13 km². WIDER LISBON AREA Seven cinematic hillsides overlooking the Rio Tejo cradle Lisbon's postcard-perfect panorama of cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals – a captivating scene crafted over centuries. Dining in Lisbon is far more dynamic than navigating countless preparations of Portugal's beloved bacalhau (dried and salted cod fish; 365 recipes and counting!). While bacalhau à Brás (shredded cod with onions, eggs and potatoes; a Bairro Alto original) is never far, Lisbon's strategic seaside position on Europe's doorstep means a bounty of fresh seafood (octopus, tuna, monkfish, shrimp, sardines, clams, snails) rules the city's kitchens, from Michelin-starred restaurants to gourmet-food markets to countless corner tascas (taverns). Top-grade Alentejan beef beckons with juicy steaks and gourmet burgers, and you'll find everything from tantalising Indian curries to authentic Moroccan couscous in between. Cheap alcohol and the absence of open-container laws means Lisbon loves a night on the town! Don't be fooled by Bairro's Alto's sleepy daytime feel – by night, these narrow-cobbled lanes transform into one of Europe's most raucous drinking locales. Student dives, traditional fado houses, upscale wine bars and tourist hot spots merrily coexist among the muddled mess. In Cais do Sodré, Pink Street and environs are home to some of the city's classic nightclubs and rowdiest cocktail bars, while trendier megaclubs stretch along the waterfront from Santos to Santa Apolónia. Last call? Sunrise! Lisbon's trademark seven hills are spread across the cityscape like lofty guardians of colour and history. Capped by a collection of terraces known as miradouros (viewpoints), a must-see web of no-filter-necessary views over Lisbon, the Tejo and beyond is formed. Our favourite miradouros – Portas do Sol, São Pedro de Alcântara, da Graça, da Senhora do Monte, Santa Luzia and, of course, Castelo de São Jorge – all offer stunning spots to get your bearings and while away afternoons over bica (espresso), elegant glasses of Touriga Nacional or refreshing pitchers of sangria, while enjoying the city's stupendous horizons.
