Charming cottage with a lovely garden set in a quiet residential street only a few minutes’ walk from the beach and the historic centre of Cascais. Close to the road to Guincho and a few minute’s drive from Quinta da Marinha (Golf Course, Health Club and Spa).

About Cascais and its surroundings : Situated close to the sea and traditionally a fishing village, Cascais is a charming, historic town with a nice beach and plenty to visit as well as restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. The world famous for surfing Guincho beach, which hosts the Windsurf World Championship League, is 10 km from Cascais.
Cascais is also famous for the yachting club and race tracks, and, of course, the golf courses. It is close to Estoril, with the famous Casino and beautiful beaches. The romantic world heritage town of Sintra is only a 30 minutes drive away.
Golf information : Portugal is a golfer’s paradise. The golf courses of Oitavos, Quinta da Marinha, and Estoril are nearby. And three other golf courses, Penha Longa, Estoril, and Lisbon Sports Club are within 30min range.
Getting there and around : Cascais can be reached by car from Lisbon airport in 40 - 60 minutes, via the A5 motorway or the more scenic Marginal road along the estuary. There is a variety of local shops and restaurants within walking distance from the cottage. There is a bus service (BusCas) every seven minutes to the town centre and train station. Taxis are close by or can be ordered.

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.
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
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.
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
This little cottage is a gem! A quiet street in the old town, just minutes walk from the centre, the beaches and the park. This was the perfect base to introduce my family to the beauty of Cascais, it's wonderful coastline and Portugal in general. Claudia made everything easy and was a fabulous hostess. This really is an ideal place for anyone - young families will enjoy the garden & the adults the calm but convenient location. Thank you, Claudia, for everything - we can't wait to return!

We had a lovely stay with our 2 year old girl. The house was clean and had plenty of toys for our daughter play with. Nice outside grass area and a 10 minute walk to the centre of Cascais!
The cottage is located in a quiet and well maintained residential area in the centre of Cascais right next to the municipal garden and the Casa das Histórias - Paula Rego museum, designed by the renowned architect Eduardo Souto Moura. A few minutes’ walk will take you to Cascais beaches and to the historic centre with its many restaurants, pubs and shops. Or you can walk to the Marina or to Cascais Villa, one of the best Shopping Centres on this coast. The road to Guincho is also only a 10-min walk. This road has a cycle and jogging track used to pedal, run or walk all the way up to Guincho, the world famous beach. A 2min drive/15min walk on this road will take you to Casa da Guia with its marvellous sea views, restaurants and coffee shops set in the grounds of the old manor house with a range of stylish shops and boutiques. Within 5 min drive, Quinta da Marinha Golf and Oitavos Golf courses can be reached.
