What you will love about this home
The apartment is full of light, there are lovely sunsets from all angles, and a view of the sea on clear days. The balcony is great in summer and the log fire keeps things warm in winter. We are in a small, quiet apartment block with only four other apartments.
What you will love in the neighborhood
I am a Brit living in beautiful Portugal with my British-Brazilian daughter. I work as a travel writer, and love running and yoga as well as wine and vegetarian food. We live in a quiet residential area of the lovely seaside town Sesimbra - 35 minutes by bus from Lisbon, 10-min bus ride (or 40-minute walk) to the beaches, right on the doorstep of the Arrabida national park with its climbing, trekking, horse-riding, biking etc. Our apartment is close to shops, supermarkets, banks etc, while still being quiet and rural. Best of both worlds!
