Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Cascais - 2 Bedrooms House in Cascais
Charming House In The Centre Of Cascais. Walking Distance To Beach, Restaurants
In Cascais you find this nice and cozy house in a very quiet location, inserted in a private condominium with 24 hours security and swimming-pool. Tasteful and homely decoration with a very nice open terrace. You will not miss you house this holidays! House with 1 suite with double bed, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 spacious living-room with dining area, ideal for families with children or couples. Several beaches at walking distance, supermarket and weekly market. Great choice of restaurants and bars nearby. Ideal location with easy access to trains into Lisbon, bus to Sintra.
The villa is immaculately presented, spacious and modern with all the facilities you will need - dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, etc. The appartment has two balconies which look out onto greenery and we saw some amazing bright coloured birds whilst eating our breakfast/lunch outside. The host is Swedish and practically everything is IKEA - which we had no problem with - for a holiday home.
The villa is located in a gated community with other low level villa/apartments on different levels (they are built on a hill) and a large very modern tower block which can be seen from all over Cascais (very handy for when you get lost). All the inhabitants share the pool which is very clean and well looked after. There are a few sun loungers but as the place is mixed (holiday makers and residents) the pool was often empty. There were a few other 'foreign' holiday makers there but not so many as you'd feel you were in the Algarve.
There is a short 10 minute walk to the centre of town which is a beautiful place with lots to entertain you and the Festival do Mar (Sea Festival) was happening when we were there (which was lots of very loud bands until late at night) with a parade, fireworks and lots more people. Luckily we couldn't hear the very loud music from the villa.
We used public transport when we were there and recommend travelling to Guincho beach, where the world surfing championships were held (10 mins on the bus), Sintra UNESCO world heritage site (30 mins by bus), Lisbon (30 mins by train) and Porto (3 hours from Lisbon by train). We had a cab from Lisbon airport - kindly pre-booked- which cost 35 EUR.
The host has a contact who met us and he was very accommodating during the time we were there, helping us find a doctor when needed as well as recommending restaurants.
The only small down side to the stay was the Doberman dog across the stairs from the villa who barked whenever we walked past (it scared us and the children each time!)
That said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would be very happy to return. Thanks very much!
CASCAIS, is a Vila near Lisbon and Sintra, once a small fishing port, has undergone major changes to become a major tourist destination in Portugal. The Cascais bay is the main attraction. It's great to take walks, there's beautiful contrasts between the brightly colored fishing boats and plain colored yachts and sailboats. You can visit the fortress, the Museum of the Sea or the fascinating Museum of Conde Castro Guimaraes, who has a small private beach. If you like to walk in gardens there is one near the museum, where you can experience rare calm moments and relax.
