Quinta de S. Filipe, located in Setubal, in the Eastern most part of the Arrábida Mountain range is 44 Km from Lisbon. This centenary farm, on a hillside, has breathtaking views of the city of Setubal, São Filipe’s Castle and of the Tróia Peninsula are just across, where the gaze goes beyond Sines (Alentejo’s Coast).
As the local poet Antonio Gedeão would say, "where one gets drunk from all the blue"
At our feet, the beautiful bay of Sado extends into the Atlantic Ocean, framed by the majestic Arrabida Mountain range . During the day, fishing boats, sailboats, commercial vessels, new catamarans and ferries shuttle across, making one forget time ...
By nightfall, the thousands of lights illuminating Setubal, the Castle of S. Filipe, and the entire Troia Peninsula extend into the horizon.
Renowned for its stunning beauty, One is led and surrounded by the magic of this mountain and sea.
The scent of rosemary, pine, and all vegetation of the mountain, merge with the cool air of the sea.
A unique place in a singular mountain range!
Unbelievable, but true: This House is even better than on the pictures!!!! One of the most unique and nicest Places we have ever seen. And we traveled quite a lot… If you like a Place with history (including a authentic patina, but perfectly nice and clean) you will love it… Antonio is very friendly guy, he did more than we would have expected (for example he prepared some food, wine, and toys for our babyboy… ok, the wine was only for us and not for the baby, but the rest is totally true).
