Casas da Gandarinha
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Charming 3 bedroom luxury with a lovely garden setting in a quiet location but only a few minutes' walk from the beach and the historic centre of Cascais. Opposite the Cascais Marina on the road to Guincho and a few minute's drive from Quinta da Marinha (Golf Course, Health Club and Spa). Decorated by its owners for own use, the property has wood-panelled bookshelves lined with books and collections. Each bedroom is on suite, tastefully furnished to combine comfort and relaxation. Comprises a large living room, a dining area for up to 8 and well equipped kitchen. Wonderful terraces off the living room are ideal for relaxing, sundowners and enjoying the sunset.
Bedrooms overlook the Parque Marechal Carmona - 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 tranquillity of this park offers curious hiding places to quietly read a book or romantic tree lined pathways to wander around the small ponds, a mini zoo, aviary, youth library, infant playground, duck pond, café, museum, chapel, rose gardens, et cetera, right in the heart of Cascais.

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
When in Cascais, take a stroll through the local park. Parque Municipal da Gandarinha in Cascais is 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 and enjoy the sunset on the Esplanade Beach Bar in Cascais (Praia da Rainha) whilst enjoying champagne sangria or overlooking the ocean at Casa da Guia over a sun down cocktail. If you have spent the day on Guincho Beach, the most romantic sunsets can be viewed from the Abano Beach Bar (BG Bar)
If you're an early riser, catch the auctions in the fish market square where the fishermen sell their daily catch. Market days are Wednesday (full market day) and Saturday, (fresh produce). Clothes Market in Carcavelos is every Thursday.
Local activities include diving, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, water skiing, mountain biking, mountaineering, roller blading on the purpose-built pathway along the coast road.
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 tranquillity 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 from outside the apt to Cascais Shopping - a shopping mall on the outskirts of Cascais & Estoril.
The Cascais tourism office is situated in the square in Cascais, for all the maps and local information you need.
The Estoril tourism office is situated on the water front just beside the casino gardens and opposite the Estoril train station.
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) or 70's retro club Rolls Royce, both 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.
