My comfortable two bedroom flat is a joy to stay in. It´s located in an important part of Cascais. The bars, pubs, restaurants (the Portuguese gastronomy will make you wish to come back!) , cafes, shops, supermarkets and galleries are the finest in Costa do Sol. Just a little further (15 minutes by car), but still very easy to reach, are the many golf courses. Guincho beach is ideal for surfing, kite surfing, body boarding. And is possible: climbing, hiking, biking. The railway station is 5 minutes away. The bus stop is within 5 min walking distance. In about 5 min walking you can get to the beach.

The central point of night-life “Praça de Camões” with the main bars and restaurants (you can enjoy fresh fish and seafood every day); during the day small supermarkets and traditional commerce. (300m/2 min walk)

- Free bike rental (600m).

- Village Market at Wednesday’s and Saturday’s (400m)

- The Marina is 500m away, with a sailing and yacht club.

- Hippodrome and the beautiful Marechal Carmona Natural Park (600m).

- Tennis Courts (5Km).

Nature, cultural, and places of entertainment at short distance from our house in Travessa da Bela Vista:

Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais

At a distance of 15 minutes drive, this natural park stretches from the lush mountains of Sintra to Praia do Guincho and towering cliffs of Cabo da Roca - the westernmost point of mainland Europe. Guincho beach despite being known as one of the beaches where they are holding the world championship windsurfing, was the James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Service' who designed it to fame in 1969.

Mouth of Hell

At a distance of 10 minutes walk, living up to the name, and a big attraction in the area, this is one of the deep ravine around Cascais, having been formed by the fury of the Atlantic against the rocks on the coastal line.

Museums and Cultural Places

'House of Stories' - Paula Rego Museum

At a short distance (600 meters), this inspiring museum was opened in 2009 and is dedicated to the life and work of internationally known painter Paula Rego. Born and raised in Cascais, Paula Rego moved to England, where she composed a unique and monumental work that glorifies her homeland.

Conde Castro Guimarães Museum

At a distance of 7 minutes walk, this museum, founded in 1931, is located in a manor house on the seafront, formerly belonging to Manuel Conde de Castro Guimarães. Now houses a wonderful collection of paintings from the XVI-XIX centuries, sculptures and antique furniture. The museum which also has a library and a chapel is surrounded by a beautiful garden and is an extraordinary example of the aristocratic pedrigree that so well characterises erstwhile Cascais.

Museum of the Sea

At a distance of another 7 minutes walk, this museum pays tribute to the maritime heritage of Cascais and King D. Carlos I, the monarch pioneer of Portuguese oceanography who was assassinated in 1908. Rare fossils, shells, some vestiges of old boats and shipwrecks in Tagus and Sado are part of the exhibition.

Places of entertainment

Casino Estoril

This famous casino which is facing the Tamariz beach is one of the oldest and most exciting in Europe. Its luxury scenario surrounding gambling and entertainment areas, is a temptation to even the most moderate players. It is said that this casino will have inspired Ian Fleming for his 'Casino Royale,' an adventure of the immortal James Bond, written in 1953.


Santini is no ordinary ice cream parlour - serving what is considered the best ice cream in the country! Founded by Atillio Santini in 1949, this historic home of gelato impressed and won a long list of guests, including politicians, curious tourists and even royals.

Sports - Golf

Estoril is one of the top destinations for golf practice in Portugal. A well balanced climate throughout the year and the existence of high quality infrastructures - Golf Clubs Quinta da Marinha, Oitavos and Estoril - make of Cascais a perfect destination for lovers of this sport.

At a distance of 15 minutes drive from our house at Travessa da Bela Vista, is the Estoril Golf, in Avenue of the Republic in Cascais.

The Estoril golf course exists since 1929 in its first version of nine holes and was built by Fausto Figueiredo, game concession holder at Casino do Estoril. In 1936 it was extended to 18 holes by the famous golf architect Ross MacKenzie, founder and 1st President of the European Association of Golf Course Architects.

Within another distance of 15 minutes drive from our house, is the Quinta da Marinha

Golf Course which has 18 holes, 5870 meters of natural beauty and big challenges.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, this par 71 has fantastic views over the Atlantic Ocean and Sintra Mountains.

Yet at a distance of 15 minutes drive from our house, is the Oitavos Natural Dunes Golf Links in Cascais.

The Oitavos Dunes, is situated in the Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais, surrounded by pines and dunes, it is part of an area of outstanding natural beauty. A sea view is a constant throughout the field, looking up North, to Serra de Sintra and Cabo da Roca and West to the Atlantic Ocean. The route was carefully designed by one of the best golf architects of today, the former president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Arthur Hills. He preserved the unique characteristics of the land, drawing a natural field with 6303 meters. Environmental certification was obtained by Audubon International, a U.S. environmental group. The Oitavos Dunes was the first golf course in Europe, and the 2nd in the world, to be recognised as a 'Certified Signature Sanctuary - Gold'. It was rated by Golf Monthly, in January 2003, as one of the top 10 golf courses in Continental Europe. Today, it is in the TOP 100 of the U.S. Golf Magazine.

About Cristina Tiago

I enjoy multicultural environments and getting acquainted with new people. I travel a lot and I had already visited a great deal of the world. When I travel I like comfort and cleanliness, as well as easy access to cultural places, beaches (which I love), easy transportation, leisure zones, punctuality and above all kindness and helpfulness. Therefore, these are definitely the conditions that I want to provide to my guests.

Gosto muito de ambientes multi culturais e de conhecer novas pessoas. Gosto também, muito de viajar e já conheço grande parte do mundo. Quando viajo, privilegio acima de tudo: conforto; limpeza da casa; acessibilidade a pontos culturais chave, praia (que adoro !), facilidade de transportes, interessantes zonas de lazer; pontualidade e acima de tudo simpatia e capacidade de entreajuda, consequentemente considero que são esses os requisitos que como anfitriões poderei dar aos meus hospedes.

Cristina Tiago purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Cristina Tiago chose Cascais

Because my property is located in Cascais, a very tourist area, for its excellent beaches, cultural part, with the country's best golf courses, Marina, etc; and in addition to these reasons, because it lies between Lisbon and Sintra, considered the most interesting spots for tourists to visit.

Lisbon keeps winning awards:

Lisbon is at the top of tourist preferences in Europe as the best destination to visit, either as a family or in honeymoon, or even to spend holidays in winter, according to the Best Vacations ranking of the US News website.

The Portuguese capital was distinguished in the following categories :

'Best Holiday Destination in Winter' (2nd place )

' More Affordable Destination ' (2nd place )

' More Affordable Destination for Honeymoon' (3rd place )

'Best Honeymoon Destination' (10th place )

' Best Destination to Visit ' ( 6th place )

' Best Destination for Families' (10th place )

For this evaluation two impartial inputs were chosen in order to determine the ranking of each destination. The first refers to articles published by travel experts and the second to recommendations by users of the US News website.

Tourist rates make Lisbon attractive for the quality and diversity of tourism, for romantic stays or family vacations , and for much affordable satisfaction of essential needs such as accommodation and catering, as well as for the various attractions of the capital and mild temperatures.

Park and Palace of Pena were the most visited places in 2013.

The parks and public monuments managed by Parques de Sintra - Monte da Lua ( PSML ) recorded about 1.708 million visits in 2013, with the Park and Pena Palace to record the highest number of entries ( 787,000 ) , which makes it the most visited site in the country , among all palaces , museums and monuments . Last year, it reached the proportion of about 90 % foreign and 10 % of Portuguese touring the spaces managed by PSML .

What makes this apartment unique

Guests enjoy the following advantages:

a) Staying with the amenities and privacy that they are likely used to in their own homes and that cannot be found in other types of accommodation.

b) Take advantage from more space at much more competitive prices.

c) Having access to urban and tourist areas that only few properties, like mine have the privilege to be in.

d) my house is in the center of Cascais, in a quiet street and close (5 minutes walk) from the train station, the main bus stop that can lead to other destinations (for exemple Sintra) and beaches.

Der Ort Cascais ist als Badeurlaubsort zu empfehlen. Ein Auto wird in der näheren Umgebung bis Lissabon nicht benötigt, der Nahverkehr ist völlig ausreichend. Allerdings war noch Vorsaison, in der Hauptsaison wird es wahrscheinlich wie überall für Senioren ungemütlich. Evtl. waren wir sogar zu spät im Jahr da.
