"The Aldeia do Meco, some 50 km south of Lisbon, is one of the summertime “Meccas” for the Portuguese and somehow relatively unknown to the outside world. The Atlantic waves crash onto the seemingly never ending beaches, the area buzzes with activity from July to September and the pine woods set the scene for many a barbeque.
This area really is a magnet for sun and beach lovers, yet there are not that many special places to stay. Well, until recently anyway, for now we have the Quinta do Miguel. Made up of a large house and surrounded by tree apartments, one Loft and tree houses, the Quinta do Miguel gets everything just about right. Sophisticated, minimalist and modern in the way it has been decorated, it is also utterly comfortable as is situated perfectly within a private 12,000 square metres area that comes with a wonderful variety of flora and trees and even some peacocks. There is also an outdoor Jacuzzi and Pool to try out if
the Atlantic breakers get too much for you. (The beaches in this area are relatively wild).
"It is an ideal place to relax, purify and as the Quinta do Miguel itself say, getaway from it all, whilst still being bang in the middle of one of Portugal’s seaside areas par excellence."
Water activities/Surfing/Kite surfing
This areas has some of the best beaches in Portugal, especially if you like breakers (great for surfing in some areas).
Nudism / Naturism
Meco beach not too far off is one of Portugal’s main nudist beaches
Typical Portuguese fishing village that swells up in summer due to its great fish restaurants, beach and location.
The Arrábida hills, some 20 km away, are utterly beautiful and a great example of Mediterranean vegetation. The hills seem to fall dramatically into the sea and there are spectacular views of the Sado Estuary and the nearby city of Setubal to enjoy.
The small town of Azeitão is famous for its wine production and a visit to the local “José Maria de Fonseca” cellars is a must if you’re into wine. Also try the local delicacies – Muscatel (a sweet wine), the local goat’s cheese and the delicious tarts with made with a special custard."
