Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Oceanario is a modern and affordable apartment within easy walking distance to the centre of Cascais. The swimming pool overlooks the vast Atlantic Ocean and the spacious and sunny 2 bedroom apartment is perfect for pool & beachside relaxation.
The lush garden surrounding the pool area is ideal for children and coupled with the separate infant's pool this apartment offers both a tranquil environment for those who want to escape to their own little world as well as the possibility for families to relax and enjoy time together in a safe and peaceful environment.
The perfect coastal location is enhanced by the closeness of several amenities. The building is opposite a small supermarket and a bakery where you can try a typical Portuguese breakfast and galao (milky coffee). There are also several restaurants in the 'Casa da Guia' complex and the area caters for all types of travelers with cafes, hairdressers and a bicycle hire stand on the doorstep.

The Central Portugal region
Lisbon & Lisbon Coast is 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 Lisbon.
The town of Sintra is a close-by World Heritage Site and well worth a day's 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.
Go by tram - #15 is the best - to Belem. It leaves from Pra?a Figueira and stops at Pra?a do Comer?io and Cais do Sodr? before going on to Belem - a wonderful place of fountains, parks, monuments and monasteries.
Worth visiting in the Estremadura and beyond are, ?bidos, Sintra, Azeit?o & Set?bal, Fatima & Nazar?. Alentejo is a little further (about 2 hours) but worth visiting are ?vora and Monsaraz. The Espor?o Wine Estate is worth having lunch at if you are going as far as Monsaraz.
Locally - Cascais Marina is great for good food and atmosphere. Sit among the boats and enjoy the sunset from the top deck. Also try the restaurants along the Guincho Road. Ones that stand out are Furnas do Guincho and Monte Mar (be prepared to pay a small price premium for great service and fantastic views and atmosphere).
The Artisan Fair in Estoril (behind Casino) each July and August offers handicraft and a variety of restaurants serving traditional food. 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. There is also a regular bus service to Guincho Beach, #405. The #403 will get you to Sintra. Another useful route is the #406 from Cascais to Cascais Shopping ( a mall type shopping centre on the outskirts of Cascais Estoril) It stops in Estoril by the beach before returning to Cascais terminus.
Night life includes the local CocoNuts Club in Cascais which spills out onto the beach and rocks at the back. Or take in the International Show and/or Dinner at the Estoril Casino. For the very young or young at heart, take a stroll through the local park (Parque Municipal da Gandarinha) in Cascais. There is an infant playground & mini zoo where you can feed the ducks - or just sit at the local caf? and read a book whilst the peacocks strut around you. Sit out in the late afternoon and enjoy the sunset on the Esplanade Bar in Cascais (Praia da Rainha), whilst enjoying champagne sangria. Or if you're an early riser, catch the auctions in the square where the fishermen sell their daily catch. Market days are Wednesday (full market day) and Saturday, (fresh produce)
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 here.
