About Lara Shah
Hi! I am the daughter of Portuguese parents and have been visiting the area for over 30 years. I think Portugal is one of the most amazing places to visit with an abundance of offerings. I current work and live in New York.
Lara Shah purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Lara Shah chose Cascais
The light in the property is the main reason why I purchased this apartment. Even on grey days it feels bright. The peace and quiet were second to none - imagine getting woken up by the sounds of sheep! And the view speaks for itself...
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
We stayed 11 days with another couple. Enjoyed striking out from our home base to Lisbon, Porto, Sintra , Estoril, and Douro River Valley. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Several super markets and a mall close by. The beaches are lovely. Walking up the hill to apartment not too bad...and helps work off the delicious meals.
Clean and well equipped apartment easy to find and just a 10 min walk into Town
Fantastic stay in Cascais !
Stayed here with my wife and daughter. Very comfortable property. Had every amenity we needed and more. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The owner is an excellent communicator and we couldn't have felt more welcomed on a vacation stay !! My only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer.
Cascais is lovely town
We very much enjoyed our vacation in Cascais. The weather was almost always bright, sunny and mild. The town has a lot to offer with a number of museums, many restaurants, movie theater. It is only 30 minute train trip to Lisbon which is very inexpensive. Our hosts were very warm and welcoming. Thank you Anabela and Joa! We did appreciate their tips about restaurants and wine. The apartment is lovely. I especially enjoyed the sunny afternoons on the balcony with a wonderful view. It is up the hill from town but easy to get taxi if needed. We found a trail from the area up by LIDL down to market easier to walk. Lovely area!
Great property in a great location
This was a lovely flat but unfortunately there were two serious issues which I am sure can be resolved but which I feel I must mention. The electricity tripped out all the time just by having some lights on & then turning the dishwasher on for instance. On our last evening, we had a friend for dinner & it tripped out around ten times. Secondly there was a huge amount of smoke which arrived via the chimney when one of the neighbouring flats had their open fire lit. Now I have unpacked my suitcase, I realise that all my clothes smell of smoke & will need to be dry cleaned. It is a real shame because the apartment is delightful & well equipped but these two issues do need to be resolved.
Thank you Lindy for your review and I’m very happy to hear that overall the apartment was very much to your liking.
With regards the two items you mention. The electricity capacity in the apartment is being increased due to the introduction we made last year of heating and air con in the apartment. We wanted to ensure we got units that adequately provided our guests with the comfort they desired and opted for those with greater output. Unfortunately this has added extra strain on the overall capacity and is something we are looking into currently.
Regarding the smoke. I’m very sorry you experienced this and it caused you inconvenience. We will address this at the next building association meeting to see if a solution can be found.
Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future.
Beautiful spacious apartment
Fantastic apartment. Excellent welcome with Annabel who looks after it for Lara. Port and welcome food provided. Secure place. Absolutely recommended.
Cascais is a small beach town in Portugal next to Estoril coast in the greater Lisbon area.
Cascais, former residence of the royal family and pioneer of tourism in Portugal, is a very charming village. Truly the charm of the Atlantic.
Dominated by the bay and the imposing Cidadela fort, the historic centre is brimming with architectural treasures of a religious, military and civil nature. Likewise, the museums of the Sea, Casa das Histórias de Paula Rego, and the Municipal Museum Condes de Castro Guimarães are also must-see attractions.
To get a feeling for the life it's best to stroll around on foot. Uphill, beyond the town centre there are numerous narrow cobbled streets to explore.
