The location of this property is a very notable feature lying within the Sintra National Park on an unspoilt cliff top. The property is completely private and not overlooked, but with one or two villas in the vicinity should not be considered too isolated.
The village of Assafora is part of the larger São João das Lampas, about 15 kilometres from Sintra and the magnificent palace - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are a number of beautiful sandy beaches close by including Samarra, São Julião and Aguda.
The A8 motorway gives easy access to the cultural capital city of Lisbon - and to the north the historic city of Mafra famous for the sumptuous 18th century Palace.
