Only 10 miles away from the bustling city of Lisbon, the town of Cascais is well worth mentioning on its own right. Visitors will discover a welcoming maritime community where the Atlantic Sea rolls its gentle waves against golden beaches and quaint waterfront docks. Home to traditional Portuguese dwellings, sunny plazas and a wonderful coastline, Cascais is not just a pretty summer town; it offers plenty of effortless charm in a relaxed and visitor-friendly environment that is full amiable locals. There are plenty of family-friendly activities on offer from luscious golf courses, an excellent range of water sports for the most adventurous travellers and a safe environment for children. Urban dwellers need not be concerned as Lisbon is only a short drive away. A holiday in Cascais is the perfect option if you long for a break in the Estoril sun away from the busy hordes of tourists that crowd the rest of the area.
Renting holiday accommodation in Cascais
A holiday rental in Cascais is the ideal way to explore this stunning region as a family. Renting a holiday apartment will give you the perfect excuse to chat to the amiable local people and ensure that you can experience an authentic holiday, as only they can suggest the best places to visit in their beautiful town away from the tourist trail. If you rent your self-catering accommodation with HouseTrip, you will ensure that you have a home away from home at your disposal for a much better deal than a tiny hotel room in what will be an unforgettable trip.
Where to stay in Cascais
The Estoril coastline still has many undiscovered charms to offer and the ideal solution is to stay amongst the local people. Only your neighbour will be able to recommend the finest eateries where you can enjoy some delicious seafood, or tell you where to find the most scenic bar still unspoilt by tourism where you can sample some vino verde, Portuguese light white wine. Whether you prefer a modern seaside apartment by Cascais’s beautiful seafront or a swanky holiday villa with manicured gardens adjacent to one of the many golf courses, renting your own accommodation in Cascais will ensure that a great holiday becomes truly memorable. After a busy day exploring the beaches and attending lively fiestas, nothing beats being able to relax in your very own terrace with a chilled glass of wine.
Cascais with the family
A family holiday in Cascais is not complete without a visit to Boca do Inferno, a natural sea-water chasm of sparkling turquoise waters that is perfect to enjoy a picnic, or Praia dos Pescadores where the kids can enjoy a swim while you relax with a good book. Afterwards, you can enjoy one of the many markets, such as the antiques market at Visconde da Luz, or you can head to Marechal Carmona for some mouth-watering locally grown fresh produce to take back to your comfortable self-catering accommodation and cook up a delicious feast. A holiday rental in Cascais is the perfect way to enjoy the comforts of your own home during your family holiday.
