About the area
The ancient town of Torres Vedras (Altitude: 66m/217ft), on the left bank of the Rio Sizandro, is about 60km/37mi north of Lisbon. It has a place in British military history as the base for Wellington's Torres Vedras Lines, fortified to defend Lisbon during the Peninsular War.
Visiting these regions bathed by the Atlantic and of rare scenic beauty, populated by hospitable people, constitutes a pleasant journey, recomforting and gratifying. Fall in love with the gastronomical tastes, the simplicity of the arts & crafts and also the beauty of the cultural patrimony, but do not dispense of a revigorating stroll along the coastal border.
The most important municipal monuments are situated in the town of Torres Vedras, of which stand out various churches and existing convents, the aqueduct, the medieval castle and the fort of S. Vincente. In the remaining parishes you will also find points of great tourist and cultural interest. From Assenta beach to Porto Novo and passing through Azul beach through Santa Cruz beach. From the patrimony stand out the "Castro de Zambujal", the ruins of the "Convento de Penafirme" to "Azenha de Santa Cruz", the home of the Military Veterans in Runa, the various wind-mills, or the Turcifal manor-houses.

Living la dolce vita
Added by : Steve Bareham Date added : Oct 11, 2016. Country : United Kingdom
Beautiful villa in a vineyard which produces wonderful wine...check. Wonderful fresh water private swimming pool.....check. Only an hour from Lisbon and Sintra....check. You cannot but help feel like you are living la dolce vita here. I would recommend a tour of the vineyard and try some of the great wine whilst there. Yes, it is a bit hard to find but then it is set in the beautiful rolling countryside. But the nearest town, Torres Vedras, is only about 20 minutes away and has restaurants and supermarkets. But with such a beautiful place you will want to eat in. The company that runs it is very good and helpful as are the people in the vineyard. The best advice I can give is to dive in and indulge.

Can't tell you how spectacular this place is. Experiencing living in a working vineyard was a holiday to remember forever. Would recommend to anyone.
