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 .
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
First time in Cascais and it didn't disappoint
Lovely apartment on the ocean! The only negative I can say about this property is where it is situated next to the pool of the neighbouring hotel. It could get pretty loud and a tenants dogs barked at the guests . We were out all day so we didn't let it bother us.
The proximity of the bakery and grocery store couldn't be closer.
We had a lovely stay.
Thank you for your valuable review.
Normally there is no noise whatsoever from the hotel so I enquired with the other residents and they said Cascais hosted the European Kids Soccer Tournament and the children were staying at the hotel, so this was the reason. I am sorry that you had this inconvenience.
Perfect Place in a Perfect Location !!!
We stayed at the Flat for 5 nights and everything was exactly the way it was described. Pam Rider is not only easily accessible but shared a wealth of valuable information with us.
Her recommended Sacolinha Bakery was a big daily hit (sometimes twice), it only takes about 30 seconds of
walking and the VIP grocery store is right next to it. We also
enjoyed a nice dinner in one of the Casa Guia Restaurants, a short walk by the Ocean.
The back Patio has the morning Sun and her front one the afternoon. Yes, we recommend her Condo and hope to be back next year for a much longer period.
What a great vacation!!!
Portugal is just beautiful!!!

Another wonderful stay
This was the second time we have stayed at this property. It suits us very well - it is clean and a good size for a couple. The location is quiet and well situated for the local amenities (bakery, restaurants and supermarkets) as well as being within easy striking distance of Cascais. We like it so much we will be returning again in August for a longer break!
Secure gated community. Clean, quiet and close to city transportation. Loved the ‘Sacolinha’ pastry shop. Beautiful views from walkway into Cascais.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
Sacolinha is a special place, its my daily stop when I visit :-)
Hopefully we can welcome you back in the future.
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. 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.
Cascais 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 centers in Portugal and the region’s most popular holiday destination. Historically the town was a favorite 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 enjoyable day trips to vibrant Lisbon, which is a 40-minute scenic train ride.
As a holiday destination, you will struggle to find a better location than Cascais.
The apartment is close to the quaint and gorgeous historic Cascais town center with its traditional streets, filled with family owned restaurants, open-air cafes and stylish bars - ideal for relaxing during the hot summer days or socializing late into the night.
Also, its proximity to various beaches, including the surfer's paradise Guincho beach, restaurants, parks, museums, shopping center, 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 golf lovers, you can an enjoy incredible 18-hole golf courses in surrounding areas, including the course at Quinta da Marinha (5 minute away), Oitavos, Sintra and Estoril.
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.
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
• 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.
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.
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.
