Close to the marina and the square. Small grocery/butcher shop on the corner, coffee shop serving small lunches on the opposite side and a popular Indian restaurant within 200m. Just off the main street so this apartment is nice and quiet.
For the very young or young at heart, take a stroll through the local park. Parque Municipal da Gandarinha in Cascais is located opposite the marina and beside the cultural centre.. Feed the ducks - or just sit at the local café and read a book whilst the peacocks strut around you.
Sit out in the late afternoon and enjoy the sunset on the Esplanade Beach Bar in Cascais (Praia da Rainha) whilst enjoying champagne sangria or overlooking the ocean at Casa da Guia over a sun down cocktail. If you have spent the day on Guincho Beach, the most romantic sunsets can be viewed from the Abano Beach Bar (BG Bar)
If you're an early riser, catch the auctions in the fish market square where the fishermen sell their daily catch. Property is within 5 minutes walk of the Cascais fresh produce market - market days are Wednesday (full market day) and Saturday, (fresh produce)
Local activities include diving, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, water skiing, mountain biking, mountaineering, roller blading on the purpose-built pathway along the coast road.
Parque Marechal Carmona - one single space resulting from the marriage of the gardens of the Palace of the Conde of Castro Guimarães and the property of the Visconde of Gandarinha. Apart from an abundance of exotic trees and shrubs, the tranquility of this park offers curious hiding places to quietly read a book or romantic tree lined pathways. Wander around the small ponds, infant playground, mini zoo, aviary, youth library, duck pond, café, museum, chapel, rose gardens etc... Right in the heart of Cascais! Open 8.30-19.45 summer & 8.30-17.45 winter
Bicycles can be hired locally (no charge) in Cascais and there is a bicycle path which stretches for miles along the beautiful coastline to Guincho Beach. Another useful service is the “Giro” Bus from outside the apt to Cascais Shopping - a shopping mall on the outskirts of Cascais & Estoril.

The Lisbon tourism office is situated on the water front just beside the casino gardens and opposite the Estoril train station.
Night life includes the Tamariz Night Club which is practically suspended over the beach in Estoril (summertime only) and Jezebels Night Club behind Estoril Casino during the winter months.

The town of Sintra is a World Heritage Site and well worth a visit.
Lisbon itself has lots to delight; from taking an old electric tram up the steep hills of Lisbon to whizzing up to the top of the Santa Justa Elevator to get a panoramic view of the city of Lisbon. Do visit Alfama (the old quarter) and be sure to wear comfortable rubber soled shoes to avoid slipping on the cobbles. In the evenings, take in a Fado evening over dinner in one of the many restaurants in this area. Bairro Alto is also wonderfully lively at night – lots of restaurants, Fado houses and late night bars/clubs.
June 12th is the night of the Festival of St Anthony; the best night for trying traditional sardines in Lisbon.

Worth visiting in the Estremadura and beyond are, Óbidos, Sintra, Azeitão & Setúbal, Fatima & Nazaré. Alentejo is a little further (about 2 hours) but worth visiting are Évora and Monsaraz. The Esporão Wine Estate is worth having lunch at if you are going as far as Monsaraz

Sit relaxing with sangria in your hand and an incomparable view of the Guincho Beach and the Atlantic in front of you and the Sintra Hills behind. A truly perfect location for sunsets. Snacks served as well as scones and tea. Pay a visit Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of Europe where you can enjoy a cliff top walk with spectacular views and visit to local tourism point.
There are many walking routes in the mountains (parts of it protected by World Heritage) behind Cascais, if you wish we can provide information and/or contacts to the local walking groups.
Otherwise for the more adventurous traveller, we can arrange organized buggy/go-cart tours along the coastline or into the protected mountain area. (some tours need to be pre organized so that permits can be obtained for the protected areas)
The delightful old town of Ericeira takes you back in time to the days when it was a tiny fishing village. Cobbled streets, white-washed houses and a plethora of restaurants and cafes offer excellent food, especially the sea-food for which Portugal is deservedly famous.

“The apartment is on the second floor without elevator, but the stairway is large. It is nicely located in Cascais, almost 5min by foot from the city center. No need to drive with the car around to go for dinner. You can easily find paid parking spaces all around (1€/h - from 9am to 8pm). The apartment is cosy with all necessary amenities. The bedroom has a good size, with a good bed to enjoy a good rest. Everthing was sparkling clean when we arrived and the small balcony is realy enjoyable. Communication with the local contact was nice, quick and efficient. It is definitely a great option for a next stay (for a couple or alone) in Cascais.” (Airbnb)

16/07/2019 - Alban
On arriving at our holiday home, Cassie welcomed us and told us all about the local amenities and festivals currently operating, we found Cassie very knowledgeable on the local area and transport options, she was also very professional.
The Holiday home was excellent and comfortable, it provided everything we needed for our stay in Cascais, and only a six minute walk from the beach too.
All the amenities were close by, the cafés and restaurants were close by and all reasonably priced.
We will certainly be using this venue again.

"We felt very well in this small, comfortable, functionally furnished, quiet apartment in a charming environment. The shower is hot and has a powerful jet. You can connect several devices to the power without the backup pops out. The balcony is in the morning in the shade, which is on hot days of advantage and in the afternoon in the sun. Small street shops with the essentials are just around the corner and the supermarket in 15min walking distance. The address is easy to find for taxi drivers. It has many small restaurants in the immediate area. Walking distance to the sea are about 7min. We will come back!" - (Airbnb)

Thank you very much for your hospitality. The apartment is very comfortable and cozy.
Sr. Victor helped us to get to the airport in time, despite the morning traffic.
And we’re also very grateful for your advice. We visited Lisbon and Sintra - even twice))
As for the restaurants - we found one excellent place with Indian cuisine just in 50-100 m from the apartment: Mayura Tandoori. It was one of the most delicious foods that we’ve ever tasted...
So, we both are very-very glad that we have chosen Cascais and Casa do Largo. We hope to visit this splendid place again))
18/09/2018 - Olga M.
Thank you, it's been a pleasure staying at Casa do Largo.
The Estate Agent Team were professional, helpful and friendly, outstanding level of service, in particular, letting us leave our luggage at the agency.
The apartment itself was in great condition, modern and nicely furnished - exactly as advertised. Clean, well-equipped and perfectly suited for a family of 4. Located in a very quiet residential area, 5 to 10 minutes walk to the beaches and town centre. The air-conditioning helped out through the heat-wave we experienced. We had a wonderful time there.
21/08/2018 - Elena, Jean, Ainhoa
"We were met at Casa do Largo by the fabulous host Cassie, who was extremely kind and helpful.
The apartment is clean, comfortable, bright, airy, and very well equipped. It’s located in a quiet residential area, 5 minutes to the closest restaurants and 10 minutes to beaches, the train station and a large supermarket. For those with mobility issues, be aware of a steep uphill climb to the apartment. And note that parking is quite expensive.
The bathroom – unlike the rest of the apartment – isn’t well-lit, and the sink is very small. And a lamp also on the other side of the bed would be nice. These are however minor complaints, and we would certainly recommend this apartment to others."
30/07/2018 - Kristin N.
“Excellent apartment which offers everything you might need. There is also a very nice balcony. We got a very warm welcome from Cassie who also gave us lots of useful information about Cascais and its surroundings. I strongly recommend this place!” Helena
"Excelente apartamento, que oferece tudo o que precisa, juntamente com um terraço muito agradável. Tivemos um acolhimento muito caloroso da parte da Cassie, que nós deu imensa informação útil sobre Cascais e os arredores. Recomendo imenso este apartamento.

Everything went well with my stay. The kitchen is well equipped, everything is clean and comfortable. Location is amazing as it is quiet but near the city center and walkable to super market (perhaps 15 minutes?) and also beach/restaurants. I have really enjoyed. Big thanks to the host!” (Airbnb)

"We had a lovely time is this apartment. The hospitality and warm welcome by Cassia were really more than we expected. The apartment is really central to the tourist destinations and walking distance to loads of restaurants, but located in a quiet neighborhood area."

“It was great... We really enjoyed the time at the Apartment. The flat feels a bit smaller then on the pictures but thereby it felt way more cosier. The littly balcony makes it just lovely, where you can enjoy the sun during the day. Everything is pretty close and you get what you need within 10-15min by walking... groceries, train station to Lisbon or the coast. Just to mention it. For 2 people you might have to watch a bit the hot water usage, because the boiler is not the biggest. But the apartment was well equipped and everything was working fine!! It was a pleasure!! Thanks again that it was possible so spontaneous... Cheers Seb” (Airbnb)
04/04/2018 - Sebastian
"Dit appartement is dichtbij alles gelegen en toch lekker rustig. Het bied alles wat je nodig hebt voor een fijn verblijf. Het enige nadeel is dat je in Cascais overal (dus ook bij het appartement) moet betalen om de auto te kunnen parkeren; ongeveer 7 euro per dag.
This apartment is located close to everything and still nice and quiet. It offers everything you need for a pleasant stay. The only drawback is that you have to pay anywhere in Cascais (including the apartment) to park the car; about 7 euros per day." )Airbnb)
19/02/2018 - Linda
“100% recommend this place! The neighbourhood is quiet, beautiful and characteristic but literally a few minutes walk/streets from all the best things Cascais has to offer: cafes, restaurants, beaches, parks, museums, shopping, transport links etc. We were greeted by a wonderful host and the apartment has a very good info book. The apartment is just as pictured and described except the "roof terrace" is only a place where the residents dry their clothes. There is no furniture up there whatsoever and it had high walls so it's not really somewhere you would/could hang out. For more than a two night stay you have to buy your own stocks of toilet paper and cleaning products - they only leave you enough for two clothes/dishwasher washes and 2 small toilet rolls. We will recommend this Casa de Largo to our friends and family - it's a great apartment. Thanks again / we really enjoyed our home away from home.”

“The flat was perfect and very well located, not far from the center of Cascais. it was very well equipped.

Me and my father had a fantastic stay in Cascais in this wonderful appartment. Everything was clean and nice! we enjoyed a lot staying at the balcony for meals.

Die Unterkunft war wirklich klasse und ich kann sie jedem nur empfehlen. Tolle Ausstattung und die Lage ist perfekt. Nur wenige Minuten zum Strand und zu tollen Restaurants. Ich wäre sehr gern noch länger geblieben. (Airbnb)
16/07/2016 - Anja V.
Our Cascais holiday was wonderful on many levels. Casa do Largo is situated in a lovely, quiet spot but within minutes of absolutely everything. There are pretty cafes and restaurants with wonderful aromas on almost every street as you walk to the centre. The apartment is nicely furnished, well equipped, spotlessly clean, bright and cheerful. It was a pleasure to stay there and we'll be booking it again for next year.
Cassie spent time telling us about all that was to done and enjoyed in Cascais and beyond. There's also a very comprehensive information file in the apartment. We had nine wonderful, relaxed, sun filled days enjoying great food and wine, picture perfect beaches, rambles through the pretty cobbled streets and visits to Sintra and Lisbon.
There's only one thing we would change which would be to lengthen our stay!
08/07/2016 - Heidi and Aidan
“Eine absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft. Wunderbar gelegen, um einkaufen oder essen zu gehen, zum Strand zu laufen oder überhaupt Cascais zu erkunden. Cassie hat uns liebevoll und sehr warmherzig empfangen und uns die ganze Zeit über toll mit kleinen Tipps versorgt. Die Kommunikation im Ganzen war hervorragend. Man kann sich keine besseren Gastgeber vorstellen. Das Apartment war absolut sauber und gut ausgestattet. Die Gegend war ruhig und sicher. Gern wieder.” (Airbnb)

The Casa do Largo apartment was a pleasure to stay in. Very comfortable, clean and bright. It is 5 mins walk to the town centre and 10 mins walk to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment and Portugal Portfolio for their excellent service.
Thank you so much for all of your help during our stay and hopefully you will hear from us again soon.
10/06/2013 - Dawn Robertson
We spent a week here at the end of May, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The apartment was superb; light and airy but easy to keep cool. It was well appointed with modern appliances, which provided everything we needed for our stay. One day the bathroom lights failed but very impressed with how quickly this was rectified, after we rang Pamela. The small balcony, which gets the sun in the afternoon and evening was big enough for us to eat there.
The apartment is in a very pleasant, quiet residential area, in which you can safely park your car. We did have a little difficulty finding it, so maybe directions and a decent map would be helpful. It's well located; easy walk into Cascais, beaches and to the station if you want to go to Lisbon. There is a bakers and a small grocers, which sells meat and fruit etc just across the square, which is handy. We used to walk to the hypermarket Jumbo, which is 15 minutes away.
We didn't use the car at all during our stay, partly because we'd driven for 4 days from Santander but mainly because we enjoyed the variety of walks we could take, round the marina, along the esplanade to Estoril or the other way along the coast. Train to Lisbon takes about 30 minutes and from Lisbon station is an easy walk into the main tourist areas. We ate in most evenings but Cascais, which we found delightful has loads of restaurants.
All in all a great apartment in a lovely place,which I'd definitely recommend. Enjoy.
