30 min from Lisbon, amidst the Arrábida National Park
The villa São Francisco is beautifully located in one of the hills of Arrábida park 8km from Palmela/Setúbal. The name of this hill is Serra São Francisco (like the villa). There is no street name, but the coordinates are provided below.
Palmela, a charming small town centred around a fortified castle at an altitude of 1200 metres at the edge of the Arrábida mountain range. Palmela lies at the heart of one of Portugal’s richest wine growing regions, often growing the Periquita variety of grape. It is also an excellent base for exploring the natural assets of the Arrábida National Park where ancient forests contain much wildlife and the odd secluded monastery.
Please note that there is always a risk that the venue might need to be changed. Needless to say that – should this happen – you will be informed in due time. And that any alternative venue will be close to this one and of similar standards.
Rooms will be shared. If that is an issue to you pls contact us and we will let you know how much of an additional price there will be for a single room (NB: This also depends on the number of applications we receive).
