Vila Bicuda Villas Resort located inside Sintra/Cascais Natural Park, right on the Estoril Coast is an excellent starting off point when visiting this beautiful region which, without a doubt, is an area which demands discovery.
Romantic, cosmopolitan, full of animation and unique character it is considered by many as the Portuguese Riviera, replete with glamour and charisma. Essentially, Estoril is a destination with its own lifestyle, affording the most diverse of sensations, with the romantic Sintra and the capital city of Lisbon just a hop away.
The perfect living symbiosis between nature and constructed patrimony persuaded UNESCO to consider Sintra a World Heritage site in 1995, in the Cultural Landscape category. Adored throughout history by artists and writers around the world, heartfelt passion for this town reached its peak during the 19th century during the heart of the Romantic Movement. Poets such as Lord Byron, who entitled the “Garden of Earthly Delights”, or Portuguese writers such as Eça de Queiros who referenced it in many passages of his books, created a natural aura in the town; an atmosphere which is yours by right. It’s exuberant in all respects. Above all, it’s the perfect fusion between natural wealth and the magnificence of its monuments.
An exceptional attraction, where 800 years of diversified cultural influences blend with the most modern of tendencies and lifestyles, generating a truly spectacular contrast.
