Three years ago, we had a large diverse group of non-family and found the house accommodated us beautifully; the yard and pool were popular with the younger members. This year we were three friends traveling together, and again it provided a relaxing space to gather and entertain friends from Lisbon. Both times the weather was beautiful, the house cooled by breezes. It's an easy walk downhill to the shops, restaurants and train station in Cascais, and one can always catch a taxi in front of the station if walking uphill is too daunting!! Vicky is a caring & discreet hostess, always responsive to guest needs and requests. The house is comfortable, clean and well-equipped as well as stylish. You can't go wrong reserving Casa Catarina!
