A zen spirit and wild landscapes: Villa Lidia combines the quiet of a seaside shack with the character of a modern country home in the heart of the Sintra-Cascais natural park
Area & Experiences
The Sintra-Cascais nature park is located just 25 kilometres from Lisbon, “the white city”, revealing a nature well-preserved with luxurious forests, craggy cliffs and white sand beaches. As dawn breaks, the sun hits the yellow and red tower of the Pena National Palace that stands watch over the park. As evening descends, the Castle of the Moors's walls light up to stand out amongst the night sky. From the bay windows of Villa Lidia, take in the view of this fairy tale décor.
