About the property

Seafront ground floor apt & Free bicycles.Close to Cascais town,beach,restaurant

To note that this apartment has had a long term rental for years and only now it is listed again for holiday rentals hence the minimal reviews.

The apartment is on the ground floor and is set in a beautiful seafront closed complex. It has a splendid view of the Hotel pool. On offer is FREE bicycle usage. Two cards available to use the Cascais bikes so this is free and you can ride along the coastal line all the way to Carcavelos.

The flat has a lovely open feel and has two patios. If you have a car, you park right outside the flat. It's ideally located on the seafront and with its cycling/walking paths along the coast line and bike rentals across the road, it offers convenient commute to the town centre with beautiful scenic views. There is also a free outside gym across the road overlooking the ocean.

It location is perfect because not only it has a beautiful seafront setting, it is a walking distance to the quaint Cascais villa, beaches and numerous other attractions as mentioned below. You can get almost everywhere on foot and also have the bicycle free usage.

Across the street you have some convenient stores like a mini supermarket and one of the best bakeries in Portugal called 'Sacolinha' that also serve light meals. There is also an hairdresser, nails bar, laundry, autobank point on the complex next door.

Cascais is the most luxurious areas of Lisbon coastal region. With its high-society trend and many of Lisbon’s rich and famous living within the vicinity of Cascais, it provides the region with a prosperous and sophisticated atmosphere.

It is a delightful Portuguese fishing town that is situated on the western edge of the beautiful Lisbon coastline, and is one of the main cultural and leisure centres in Portugal and the region’s most popular holiday destination. Historically the town was a favourite with the Portuguese nobility, and today the town is an elegant blend of grand 19th century architecture, traditional Portuguese charm and outstanding tourist facilities.

These factors combine not just to make a great holiday destination but also an enjoyable day trip to vibrant Lisbon, which is a 30-40 minute scenic train ride.

As a holiday destination, you will struggle to find a better location than Cascais.

The apartment is close to this quaint and gorgeous historic Cascais town centre with its traditional streets, filled with family owned restaurants, open-air cafes and stylish bars - ideal for relaxing during the hot summer days or socialising late into the night.

Also, its proximity to various beaches, including the surfer's paradise Guincho beach, restaurants, parks, museums, shopping centre, the Marina, prestigious golf courses and the Casino do Estoril, the largest casino in Europe, make it the perfect location.  A stroll along the beach front promenade connects Cascais to Estoril.

Cascais is also close to the Sintra Mountains, a World Heritage site where you can have long walks on horseback or see the coaches strolling in picturesque Sintra. Regular bus services take you to Sintra.

For the sea lovers, surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, are waiting for you. But if you feel that a board is too small for your sea adventures, you can rent a boat at the Marina (walking distance), do some sailing, go see the dolphins in the open sea or visit the Sea Museum. Surrounding Cascais are two contrasting coastlines; the northern wild and rugged surfing beaches (Guincho beach is considered as one of the finest surfing beaches of western Portugal and is set amidst the stunning scenery of the Serra de Sintra Natural Park) and the friendly beaches that extend to the east, including Carcavelos and São Pedro beaches. These beaches are a favorite with the residents of Lisbon, who flock to them during the long, hot summer months. This coastline is easily accessible from Cascais, as it is served by the regional railway that connects Lisbon and Cascais (the journey takes 30-40 minutes, and a return ticket costs €4.30).

About Pam Ryder

I am from South Africa and in 2007 I moved to London where I experienced my best career years and met my husband who shares my passion for sports. Between us we have 5 grown up boys and 6 grandchildren. From 2012 and October 2015 work took us to Miami where we had of course the best weather conditions for our love of the outdoors. We are now living in the British countryside near Cambridge and Cascais remains our little piece of heaven for breakaways where we enjoy the outdoors so much.

Why Pam Ryder chose Cascais

LOCATION=> The location is perfect, set in a beautiful setting on the sea front and being able to walk to almost everywhere. Its away from the busier town centre but close enough to walk there.

I also supply two bicycle cards so you can make the most of the Cascais bike scheme for Free. You can pick up the bicycles across the street and can use them the whole day (need to validate at one of the numerous stations every two hours).

I love it because of the tranquility and same time being close to everything. My favourite is Quinta da Guia which is so beautiful with various restaurants to choose from, enjoy stunning sunsets and this is 300m away.

You also have bike and walking paths everywhere, an outside gym right across the street with beautiful ocean views, parks, beaches, the Marina, tourist points of interest like "Boca de Inferno" all at walking distance and so many little places to explore. Considering its a small town, there is so much to do and discover. If you choose public transport, there are buses every 15 minutes, 1€ a trip.

Its a magical place and my little piece of heaven

What makes this apartment unique

Again its the location, you will struggle to find a better located place than this property.

Tranquility, beautiful setting and gorgeous view from the patio to sit and relax and at same time have so much to explore and do in beautiful scenic surrounding areas.

Free bicycles is also an added bonus. You can ride as far as Carcavelos and bicycles can be picked up across the street .

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Cascais is a beautiful town, perfectly situated close to Lisbon and the fascinating hilltop town of Sintra (a must-see!)

The apartment itself was clean, pleasantly furnished and had everything you could want for a self-catering holiday. The supermarket across the road was very convenient and the hotel facilities (which are easy to access being just opposite the apartment in the same grounds) make this an ideal place to relax.

Although the apartment is along the coast from Cascais town centre, it is a lovely stroll along a coastal path into the town, past the Boca Do Inferno, Casa De Santa Maria (which has a great little cafe overlooking the beach - the grilled fish was divine!) and Marina.

If you want somewhere to go for dinner nearer to the hotel, there is a cluster of cafes and restaurants just about 5-10 minutes up the road (in the opposite direction to the town centre) - they all have outdoor seating and lovely views out to sea.

We had a great holiday here and hope to return one day... Thank you!

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything written about Cascais and the surrounding areas of Lisbon and Sintra was found to be true. To top it off we were able to visit the Estoril tennis tournament, which was within walking distance and just 15 euros to get a court side seat. Highlights of our trip include the Time Out market just opposite the main railway station in Lisbon, and Monseratte in Sintra - absolutely beautiful - don't miss the video if you visit the house. The pools and hot tub added to the amenity of the local beaches, particularly when the weather wasn't quite up to it. Would definitely visit again.

Wonderful location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and area was just as described. Supermarket and restaurants close by and lots of places near by to explore.

Easy to get to downtown Cascais and surrounding area --bus, taxi, walk or bike -we did all 4.

Pam was flexible with check in/checkout time and her restaurant recommendations were wonderful. Would not hesitate to stay again.

All you would want within a short walk or lovely bike ride but the apartment has hollow walls.

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed the amenities, short walk to a supermarket with friendly staff. Lovely pastry shop across the road and sea facing restaurants. The bikes were great although sometimes difficult to dock and undock them. Ecuardo who meets you with the keys is very nice, but speaks virtually no English, a problem when the electricity unexpectedly went off and the tv wouldn’t work. Although Pam did respond very quickly to liaise via email/text. Apartment was very clean and quite comfortable, but walls are hollow, could hear toilets flushing and other noises from adjoining apartment(s), which lessened enjoyment of our stay.

Atlantic Gardens is situated on the sea front in a prime location, where you can get almost everywhere on foot and in one of the most luxurious areas of Lisbon coastal region, Cascais.

Musts are a visit to “Casa da Guia", a palace of the nineteenth century with a beautiful park overlooking the sea is one of the most fabulous places in Cascais with a handful of shops, cafes and restaurants with outdoor terraces overlooking the Atlantic, the views are spectacular! One of the secrets places in Cascais. Don't miss it! And it is literally across the road from the apartment, a 2-minute walk.

Marechal Carmona Park, a beautiful park in the middle of town, with little trails, live music on the weekends, a lake, a library, a small café. A place to read your book in peace, to observe nature. Very peaceful setting and meticulously maintained.

On one side of the park, there is a small stadium for horse shows. On the other side is museum, The Museu Condes de Castro Guimarães, well worth a visit if you have the time.

Boca do Inferno and the Port of Santa Maria are also a must and you can get to these also by foot.

There are cycling/walking paths along the coast line and I offer two bicycle cards so you have FREE bicycle usage.The bike post is across the street, so it’s very convenient to commute while enjoying the beautiful scenic views. You can ride along cycling paths all the way pass Estoril and to Carcavelos.

Cascais offers an abundance of choice, from the visitor seeking night life to culture, shopping, gambling, sun and sea, sports, plus a beautiful countryside and historic sites. The only problem you will have is having ‘time’ for it all

Various Distances:

• 100m from the sea;

• 10 minutes walk or 2 minutes driving distance from the center of Cascais with its beaches, shops and all his cosmopolitan life;

• 5 minutes walk from the famous golf course of "Quinta da Marinha";

• 2 minutes walk to "Quinta da Guia" for restaurants and few shops.

Weather:

Cascais and the Lisbon region have long hot summers, pleasant spring and autumns seasons, and mild but possibly wet winters. The weather in central Portugal is suitable for spending time on the beach from mid-April until the mid of October.

To Note:

Portugal is currently experiencing an unparalleled rejuvenation and Cascais is expecting a stellar record summer season for 2017 and this follows the sell-out summer of 2016. This does mean that to secure accommodation and flights, booking far in advance is advised.
