Custódia e Francisco

Villa Estefânia situa-se num local tranquilo, com uma bonita paisagem e bem próximo do centro da Villa de Sintra, a meia hora de Lisboa e a quinze minutos de Cascais. Trata-se de uma casa centenária, adquirida há cinco anos pelos seus actuais proprietários que a reconstruíram nesse período de tempo, com respeito pela sua história e pelas melhores regras da reabilitação urbana. Os anfitriões puseram nela todo o seu amor e dedicação, não apenas para dela usufruírem, mas para proporcionarem aos seus filhos, amigos e hóspedes momentos de felicidade. Destaque para os azulejos do século XVIII, feitos e pintados à mão, que nela abundam e para a sua decoração e ambiente clássicos. Num raio inferior a 500 metros, os hóspedes possuem todos os serviços e comodidades de que necessitam para uma estadia segura, agradável e descontraída que, decerto, não esquecerão.

Francisco e Custódia, proprietários e anfitriões da Villa Estefânia, têm residência no 1.º e 2.º pisos da casa, pelo que estão sempre ao dispor dos seus hóspedes. Apesar da sua vida pessoal e profissional, têm o maior gosto em todos bem receber, no sentido de tornarem inesquecível e familiar a sua estadia. Há a possibilidade de prepararem ou organizarem refeições, nomeadamente, jantares (de cozinha tradicional portuguesa e/ou temáticos), preparados pelos próprios ou fora do alojamento, bem como confeccionados na Casa por chefes de cozinha contratados para o efeito (cozinha japonesa, mongol, chinesa , tudo mediante marcação prévia e preço a ajustar consoante os pedidos. Os anfitriões propõem-se ainda a prestar outros serviços, nomeadamente, organização de passeios e visitas guiadas, piqueniques, caminhadas e outros eventos, tudo combinar com a antecedência necessária e preço a ajustar. Haverá ainda a possibilidade de se organizar, na área exterior ou fora do alojamento, nos mesmos termos atrás indicados, chefes de cozinha nacional e/ou internacional (japonesa, chinesa, etc) para confeccionarem jantares, participação em noites de fado ou outros eventos.

A Villa e a Serra de Sintra são Património Mundial da UNESCO na categoria de Paisagem Protegida. Trata-se de uma terra privilegiada, com inúmeros recantos e miradouros, museus, palácios, casas apalaçadas, conventos, castelo medieval, igrejas e outros monumentos de relevante interesse turístico, histórico e cultural, jardins únicos e encantadores, uma fauna, flora e biodiversidade sem igual, que convida a caminhadas, passeios a pé e de bicicleta, bem como à realização de piqueniques. É uma terra cheia de magia e com um sem número de lendas que valem bem a pena conhecer. Possui ainda praias fantásticas, quase em estado selvagem, que justificam ser conhecidas. Além disso, oferece uma gastronomia rica e variada e, acreditem, tem o melhor peixe e marisco do Mundo. Valerá ainda a pena uma visita aos seus arredores (Mafra, Ericeira, Cascais, etc.) e um pulo a Lisboa que é uma capital cosmopolita, com uma luz única e um sem fim de ofertas (vida nocturna, concertos, museus, etc.). E haja tempo e disponibilidade, também se aconselha um passeio a Azeitão, Arrábida e Setúbal.
