The villa is private and has a beautiful view towards the mountain of Sintra. For all those who like their privacy and contact with nature, this “Quinta” is the ideal place to spend their holidays. The village and surroundings The quinta has an excellent location: Casa Quinta do Floral is near to Mucifal and the historical village of Colares. It is ideal for those who wish to combine relaxation, cultural visits and be near to the metropolitan as well, seeing that Cascais is at 17 km (various big shopping malls), Estoril (big casino and discotheques) at 20 km, and Lisbon at 30 km. Sintra lies very near (7 km) and is of great historical value, Lord Byron loved the place, calling it “Glorious Eden”. Sintra was declared by Unesco a world heritage site; the most typical village from the Royal family history. You can see Sintra by horse-drawn carriages which will take you around the town as well as Sintra's mountains. You can see in the ridge of Sintra mountains historic monuments like Moorish Castle, Monastery of Capuchos, Monserrate Palace, National Palace, Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, Seteais Palace, Peninha Chapel, etc; There are also fabulous botanical gardens and parks. The beaches Praia das Maças and Praia Grande (where every year during summer the world championship of (bodyboard) surfing is held) are at approx. 3 km. Praia das Maças has several restaurants with excellent food, cafés, bars, discotheques as well as shops selling local crafts and a swimming-pool with sea water. At approx. 2 km from the Quinta you can take the tram to go to either Praia das Maças or to Sintra in the summer months. But of course there are always the other beaches, such as Adraga, which was nominated Europe’s most beautiful beach in 2003. Adraga can be reached via the village of Almoçageme, which deserves a mention because of its caves on the southern side, with both mountain and beach sceneries. Other wonderful beaches are: Azenhas do Mar, a village built on the rocks (small but wonderful), at approx. 4 km, Aguda (small and quite), Magoito (plenty of facilities), Praia da Ursa, a naturist beach near Cabo da Roca (allow a good half hour for the climb back up to your car, no facilities) and Samarra (small and quite, no facilities). In 15 km you can find another wonderful beach "Guincho"/ Cascais where the world championship of windsurf is held. Cabo da Roca is at approx. 17 km from the Quinta and is the most western point on the European continent, defined by the poet Camões as “where the land ends and the sea begins”. Here visitors can buy an attractive certificate showing they have been there. At 2 Km you will find the village Colares, a demarcated wine-growing region, famous for its excellent wine, which can be tasted at “Adega Regional de Colares”. At approx. 30 Km from Quinta do Floral lies Lisbon, where you can find great historical monuments, theatres, cinemas, the "Parque das Nações (themepark) where the Expo 98 was held, shopping areas, zoo and typical restaurants where you can taste the excellent traditional portuguese cooking, for instance in Bairro Alto, where you can also listen to the famous “Fado” which is the daily expression of the local people.
