About Andrew Pendlebury
I am Portuguese by Nationality. Working as an estate and letting agent in the UK I have come to appreciate how important quality of life is. This was one of my main reasons to pack up and move to Portugal - the slower pace of life feels like a healthy way to live.
Why Andrew Pendlebury chose Cascais
It was important for us to be in a prime area. The apartment is located in Cascais (3km, 7 minute drive to centre) and has easy access to shops, public transport, airport (easy access to motorway which is just over 2km away), beaches and plenty to do for some outdoor adventures. Saying this, we chose this particular part of Cascais due to it's friendly neighborhood and quiet surroundings. We also chose this area because we like the outdoors and have so many things right by our door step. We are also close to the coast where we love going for walks and bike rides on the bike paths.
What makes this Apartment unique
Being central to many locations around Cascais, the apartment offers great variety and choice of activities. Firstly, Cascais and the immediate surrounding areas (Guincho, 5km, 12min drive) have some very impressive picturesque beaches. Cascais offers many daytime activities (Segways, Rent-free bicycles, sailing expeditions, etc) while also accommodating animal lovers with horse riding clubs. The Cascais Marina includes bars/cafes/restaurants and nice walks around some quite large and expensive yachts! We also have some excellent restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. Cascais is known for a good night life, both for eating out and enjoying the warm evenings later on into the night. Sintra (30 minutes) offers fantastic mountainous views and many historical castles.

A wonderful relaxed stay in a cosy appartment with very nice hosts.
It was a nice and cosy, comfortable appartment. A warmly decorated livingroom with a separate diningroom. A separate kitchen with everything you can possibly need. Also a nice bathroom. A quiet bedroom with a good bed. There is also a nice sit outside.
Andrew and his wife were lovely hosts. They even surprised us when we arrived with some nice snacks and a bottle of wine and port. What a welcome. The appartment is close to some restaurants and not far (can even walk) to the boulevard at the ocean side. Very nice to stroll along. Cascais center is nearby and lovely. We went to Lisbon by train, very convenient.
We also went to see all the castles in the surroundings.
So all we can say, IT WAS A VERY NICE STAY WITH ANDREW AND SARAH.
Cosy, friendly and nice patio
The apartment is cosy and had everything we needed. Hosts were great, gave us great detail about the surrounding areas and found much information on their website. Outside area is great although weather did not permit much use. I am sure summer evenings are great out there!
Thank you Andrew!
