Villa Epicurea

I smelled the fresh flowers on the table in my suite. The fragrance made me happy: my holiday at Costa de Lisboa was off to a great start. I put down my things and freshened up. Upon my arrival, I had enjoyed a welcome drink and some pleasant conversation with the owner, Marianna. We had so much to discuss that she invited me for lunch on the patio. I agreed without hesitation, especially after she told me that her personal chef prepares everything with fresh, local and organic products.

I arrived at the patio and took a minute to relish the view. Such beautiful nature! I could see the ocean up ahead. Surrounded by such beauty, I felt a sense of serenity fall over me. ‘The same thing happened to me when I first arrived, Eliza’, Marianna said as she approached me. ‘The breathtaking view, the greenery and the serenity of this location, it all completely stole my heart’. I knew exactly what she meant.

We kept talking while enjoying a delicious lunch and some local wine. Marianna had moved to Portugal from Russia after falling in love with this country. That must have been such an adventure. As a photographer, she had always been in touch with nature and yoga. She found it all right here. ‘My first dip into the pool, all alone, was so special. Being surrounded by nature and looking at the ocean from the water is just a magnificent feeling. And when I first tried the fireplace during winter: magical’. I was absorbed by Marianna’s stories while the hours passed. One thing is for sure: she was completely right about the magic of Villa Epicurea.

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.
