Out and About Locally

Out & About in Cascais

For the very young or young at heart, take a stroll through the local park (Parque Municipal da Gandarinha) in Cascais 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 sun and enjoy the sunset on the Esplanade Beach Bar in Cascais (Praia da Rainha) whilst enjoying champagne or sangria or perhaps at Casa da Guia over a sun down cocktail, while the sun disappears behind the ocean. If you have spent the day on Guincho Beach, the most romantic sunsets can be viewed from the Abano Beach Bar (BG Bar).


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 to CascaisShopping - a popular shopping mall on the outskirts of Cascais & Estoril.

Local activities include diving, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, water skiing, mountain biking, mountaineering, rollerblading on the purpose-built pathway along the coast road.


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. Alternatively, try the club for "the young at heart" (Vangogo) in Cascais old town. Take in the International Show or Dinner & Show at the Estoril Casino.
The Artisan Fair in Estoril (behind Casino) each July and August offers handicraft and a variety of restaurants serving traditional food.

The Cascais tourism office is situated in the square in Cascais, for all the maps and local information you need.
Another Lisbon tourism office is situated on the waterfront just beside the casino gardens and opposite the Estoril train station.

Out & About in Lisbon

Lisbon and the Lisbon Coast are both an all-year-round destination. Summers, whilst warm, are rarely oppressive and the cooling sea breeze keeps it comfortable even during the hottest months. Very mild winters mean you can enjoy your short break in the winter sun in Cascais and Lisbon. The nearby town of Sintra is a World Heritage site is 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 (Santo António); the best night for trying traditional sardines in Lisbon. Go by tram - #15 is the best - to Belem. It leaves from Praça Figueira and stops at Praça do Comércio and Cais do Sodré before going on to Belém (getting off by Jerónimos Monestary) - a wonderful place of fountains, parks, monuments and monasteries. Tram #28 is also worth taking a ride on to get the proper Lisbon tram experience, which can be caught at Miradouro das Portas do Sol and riding it until the Estrela Basílica.

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.


We can offer you a day excursion at competitive rates. See our Tours section.

Out & About in Sintra

Sintra is a World Heritage site and has a lot to be seen, including the Moorish Castle, the Palace of Pena, the National Palace and the mysterious Quinta da Regaleira. It also offers great shopping and restaurants. Markets in Sintra are on the 1st and 3rd weekends of each month. And with Lisbon only 25 minutes away and Cascais only 15 minutes, you can get all the cosmopolitan and night life you need.


A short distance away you can enjoy a lovely lunch at the Don Quixote Restaurant. This terrace bar is located at a windmill just a stone's throw away from the westernmost point in Europe. Sit relaxing with sangria in your hand and an incomparable view of the Guincho Beach and the Atlantic Ocean in front of you and the Sintra Hills behind. A truly perfect location for sunsets. Snacks are available including tea and scones. Pay a visit to Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of Europe, where you can enjoy a cliff top walk with spectacular views and visit a 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-kart 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. Ericeira is also legendary for its excellent surfing conditions and annually hosts a round of the ASP World Tour Surf Championships.

Lisbon's primary airport (Portela) is approximately 30km from Cascais. There is a regular shuttle service that operates between the airport and the Cais do Sodré train station, which is located right by the coastline.

We advise that you acquire a map of the city and have a vague idea where it is you're going to avoid being swindled by the taxi drivers. If you find yourself crossing either the 25 de Abril or Vasco de Gama bridges, you are going the wrong way!

We loved staying at this property. Beautiful garden and swimming pool, nice, large living area. Our big family felt perfect there and we received the best assistance from Portugal Portfolio. If you want a beautiful green location in Cascais almost in the center and almost in the big local park, this is the best one. We were walking minutes away from anything in Cascais. We've had a beautiful garden with a great pool. However even in August I found the pool water a bit cold, but the rest of the people were using it every day. The beach is close also. The apartment has a great living area and 3 bedrooms. It's a new building, very well maintained. We had a great time here.Thank you!!!

The apartment could not be faulted and was quite luxurious. Large 3 double bedrooms. Accommodated five adults comfortably. My grown up boys enjoyed the Sky TV, wifi etc. The large shared pool was seldom used by the other apartments. (Cannot think why) Location was quiet &central with only 5 to 10 mins walk to the centre of Cascais and all the restaurant.

05/06/2017 - Bob P.

“The property is in a fantastic location within walking distance of Cascais attractions yet secluded and with beautiful garden and shared pool. The managing agent is responsive and provided helpful information about local restaurants and activities. They were also flexible on access and departure times, which was appreciated. There was building work taking place in the garden area that was not indicated in the property description but the agent responded quickly when this was raised so that use of machinery was curtailed and subsequently did not affect our enjoyment of the garden.” (Airbnb)

From the beautiful garden surrounding the building to the friendly security guard who greeted us with a great big smile no matter how many times we walked through the door and the lovely, open plan apartment we stayed in... absolutely everything was fantastic! The location of the apartment building could not be more perfect. We were a stone throw away from the centre of Cascais, the beautiful beach and fantastic restaurants - we could walk almost everywhere! Our apartment was amazing. An abundance of space, modern, fully equipped kitchen, air-conditioned rooms and great, easy access to the beautiful pool area. We will most definitely recommend this ground floor apartment to anybody visiting Cascais.

Thank you we had an excellent time in Cascais. We were very pleased with the accommodation. The apartment was really lovely, beautifully decorated and very spacious. The three double rooms were perfect for our family and it also had a large open plan living area. The terrace overlooking the garden was spacious also with seating to eat outside and loungers to relax in. It also has a very nice BBQ.

The apartment has a gorgeous pool which unfortunately was being renovated during our stay unknown to us prior to our arrival. Despite this hiccup we found the Portugal Portfolio staff helpful and courteous and they arranged an alternative at a local gym.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment and beautiful Cascais.
