The St George's Castle and Mouraria is one of the oldest quarters in Lisboa on the top of the hill. Adjacent to the Mouraria are the likewise old quarters of Alfama Every year in June, the streets of all three quarters come alive with the feasts in honour of the popular saints ( St António - 12 June ) . Bairro Alto is also wonderfully lively at night – lots of restaurants, fado houses and late night bars/clubs.

15 Feb 2013
Last august I spent three weeks with my family (my husband and my two kids, two years old and six months old) in this fabolous villa in Cascais.
First of all as soon as we arrived we were amazed by the villa: it is modern, very clean...just perfect. The owner of the villa was waiting for us and explained to us the most important things. She and her family were very helpful at anytime: once the tv couldn't work (I think I wasn't able to make it work) and her husband came immediately to sort it out from Lisbon.
They want to make sure you are happy there and everything is ok.
The house is fully equipped (you really don't need anything...there is all and more than you need!).
The resort is great, especially if you have children, but even without children is great. After the three weeks holiday I immediately booked the villa for the following august, and finally I booked five weeks there, because I cannot find a better place to spend a few relaxing weeks with my family. i strongly reccomend the Zen villa...you will not regret it!!!
