We loved the villa and Cascais

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed staying in this villa in Cascais. The property is very well equipped, immaculate, spacious and comfortable. The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating - no request was too much trouble. It was a great place to stay with younger children as there was no clutter and the garden was fully enclosed, not to mention the toys, dvds and dressing-up we found there on our arrival. The only thing missing was a washing machine for longer visits.

The large municipal park was literally 2 minutes walk with lovely play equipment, peacocks and a cafe and the local (sandy) beach was just 10 minutes away (children's walking pace). The charming town had everything we needed and we managed quite happily with buses, trains and occasional taxis (which were very reasonably priced despite the poor exchange rate), although there was parking available at this property. We managed to visit Sintra by bus easily (from the bus station under Cascais Villa Shopping Centre) - it's worth getting a daytrip ticket for the hopper bus that takes you to all the tourist attractions when you get there (several are way out of the town).

I wholeheartedly recommend this great property and location for a relaxing and interesting holiday.

Spacious house close to centre of Cascais but in quiet area

  • 4 of 5

We (2 adults & 2 teenagers) have just come back from Cascais where we had a wonderful time. We were very kindly collected from the train station by Claudia,the owner of the house.In addition to collecting us ,she gave us a short tour of the town. The house, which is situated on a quiet street is only a 5 minute walk from the town centre.There was a nice area at the back where one could sit out...with plenty of seating. A great variety of toys would keep younger children amused & the fussball provided our teenagers with some entertainment.

The house itself was as described...very spacious and tastefully decorated .There were 3 bedrooms which would comfortably sleep 6 people.There was a large living and dining room, a tv room with lots of videos for adults and children(mainly Portoguese,I think).There was a nice kitchen with dining area...loads of pots,pans,crockery,cutlery etc. In addition,Claudia left a welcome pack (cookies,wine,juice,oil etc) and there were other basics ( coffee,tea etc) & cleaning agents which was great as it reduced the shopping bill! There was no airconditioning but there were plenty of electric fans which worked perfectly.

Towels,bed linen, etc were all included & some spare items were available.

We stayed for just one week so laundry was not really an issue but the house would benefit form a washing machine especially if staying for longer. Also,the shower ( which is in the bath tub ) could do with updating.

These were the only slight negatives in house of positives.

Claudia was available if we had any problems ( we didn't)& she organised our taxi back to the airport too which was great.

We were really very happy with this property and would recommend it to families.

We also wish to thank Claudia for making us so welcome.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this cottage and its owner Claudia. Not only did she organise transport from the airport as we had a toddler in tow, but turned up to greet us to provide information and a tour of the cottage. The cottage itself is much bigger than the photos show and wonderful for children as it has a playroom, garden, paddling pool, a hamper of toys and a small car that kept our 2.5-year-old occupied for hours!

Cascais itself is like stepping onto a movie set and this cottage is located in the Museum quarter with a park only minutes away with playground and roosters. If you like art, there are a few museums to explore and the Paula de Rego exhibit in the Casa das História across the road is a great way to spend an hour or two. The beaches are lovely with loads of options to sunbathe and swim while there are so many lovely restaurants it's very easy to never eat in the same place! Be sure to check out some of the eateries near the cottage as they serve some wonderful food with a local atmosphere rather than the 'tourist' experience.

Book now while you can! :-)

Superb 3 bed cottage in excellent location - comes highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Cannot really say anything that hasn't been said before. However would reinforce:

Location - easy 7/8 minute walk into town / marina / beach - plenty of places to eat and lovely town to explore

Cottage - Typical fairly large Portuguese Cottage. Court yard area at rear for sunbathing and eating. A real home from home with everything you need. We were a family of 4 Adults.

Welcome - nothing too much trouble with owner (Claudia) at the end of the telephone if needed

Arrival - we came by train from Lisbon Airport so easy : two tubes then a train to Cascais - journey cost less than 5 Euros per person in total and tubes/trains running regularly

Area - easy access to Lisbon by bus or train, Sintra reached easily by bus and easy walking distance to Estoril resort area

We would highly recommend this as a place to stay

Lovely house

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice stay at Claudia's house. Very spacious, nearby beach and town. Also the facilities for our 1 year old son where excellent. Especially the huge amount of toys! Also the accommodation and the sightseeing (Lissabon, Sintra) where easy to reach without a car, as the train en busses leave nearby.

Super accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This was just perfect. The cottage is amazing and close to all amenities. Claudia is such a wonderful host and is extremely helpful and generous. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She has thought of everyone's needs so teens and small children will all love the cottage. Her personal help was greatly appreciated. Cascais has wonderful beaches and parks close to the cottage. The cottage is in a lovely safe, residential area yet very central. Definitely the best choice for us. Looking forward to return again. Thanks Claudia for making our stay brilliant
