There are 2 big garden areas with a total of 300 sq. meters, one facing south and enjoying full privacy and continuous sunshine for the whole day, and another facing north, for those warmer days. It also allows to have children playing safely in one big but confined area of the garden with fresh and comfy grass, while the grownups enjoy a barbecue, or simply a few drinks in the other open garden area. The front garden features what Portuguese call a "Summer kitchen", a outdoor kitchen with a coal/wood big barbecue woven where you can have your grills and eat "al fresco". Fresh meat seasoning herbs can be picked up directly from that same garden where you prepare your grills.
The house is only 10min cycle or 5€ taxi ride from the center of the fishing village of Cascais, where you can visit its many shops and restaurants, and watch the breathtaking sunset from the terrace of the marina while enjoying your favorite drink. The popular Guincho beach, famous for being featured in the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", and its wind, perfect for surfers, windsurfers and kite-surfers is less than 10min drive from the house. It's also the perfect place to relax while enjoying the best seafood and superb views over the wild part of the Atlantic sea.
For culture and city lovers you can take the train to Lisbon (+-2€ per adult passenger) and enjoy the 35min ride along the calmer part of the Atlantic ocean and later the banks of the River Tagus (Tejo). You can also choose to go to Sintra and visit the town that the famous British poet and traveler Lord Byron stopped by in the 18th century, and described as "perhaps in every respect the most delightful in Europe", and called a "glorious Eden" in his epic poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage.
For golf lovers the courses of Oitavos, Quinta da Marinha, Estoril, Penha Longa and Beloura are all at the distance of a short drive.

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Located just off the capital and overlooking miles of stunning coastline, this part of Lisbon has unspoiled and truly spectacular clean beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, with unique features in the Mediterranean.
Some beaches are a well kept secret among holidaymakers, offering top class accommodation, a huge range of activities, beaches and splendid golf courses for all tastes.
Cascais is a coastal town 30 kilometres west of Lisbon, with about 180,000 inhabitants in its municipality. It is a cosmopolitan suburb of the Portuguese capital and one of the richest municipalities in Portugal.
Having 35,000 residents in the town, this former fishing village gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Nowadays it is a popular vacation spot for both Portuguese and mature foreign tourists.
It even has an airport for general aviation serving the Lisbon Region in Tires, "Cascais Airport".
