Location: 3 minutes walk to beach from where there is a continuous promenade all the way to Cascais, 2 minutes walk to Sao Joao train station with trains every 10-20 minutes to central Lisbon (35 minutes) and Cascais (6 minutes). It comprises the second floor of a large Portuguese house that has been split into three apartments. The house dates back to the 1860s and was the first to be built in Sao Joao do Estoril (so I'm told!).

The house is located at the head of a cul-de-sac with no through traffic. The road adjoining the one the house is on has a cafe, a restaurant, a beauty parlour, an (excellent!) ice-cream parlour and a small florist/gift shop. Next to the station there are several shops, small bars, several cafes, patisserie/bakery, two small supermarkets, a pharmacy, hairdressers, plus several small restaurants in the vicinity (and many more by the beach). The area around the apartment is well served by public transport.

Further details indoors

We have plug-in oil filled radiators to heat the bedrooms.

There is no air-con, but the house is very old (over 150 years) with very thick walls so rarely, if ever, gets too hot in the summer. In fact, "cool and airy" is probably a good description of the house!

All fixtures and furniture in the house, with the exception of the 2nd bathroom, are brand new.

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region

Lisbon & the Lisbon Coast are both 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 Cascais and Lisbon.

The town of Sintra is a World Heritage Site and well worth a 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 Praça Figueira and stops at Praça do Comerçio and Cais do Sodré before going on to Belem - a wonderful place of fountains, parks, monuments and monasteries.

Worth visiting in the Estremadura and beyond are, Óbidos, Sintra, Azeitão & Setúbal, Fatima & Nazaré. Alentejo is a little further (about 2 hours) but worth visiting are Évora and Monsaraz. The Esporão Wine Estate is worth having lunch at if you are going as far as Monsaraz

We can offer you a day excursion at competitive rates. See our Tours section.

Estoril

Coast / Beach

The nearest beaches in S.João are Azarujinha and Poça just 3-5 mins walk from the property; other beaches on the Cascais / Estoril coast are within easy walking distance 10 to 15 minutes along the promenade. A few mins drive away is the magnificent, spectacular Guincho coastline, with sandy beaches and rocky coves. The alternative popular surfer beach of Carcavelos just 15 minutes drive away is very accessible also by train.

There are a great many sandy beaches on the Lisbon Coast. You have the choice of 3 beaches in the centre of Cascais. Fisherman's beach, Praia da Rainha, or the longer stretch at Praia d Conceição and many more as you travel in the direction of Lisbon. They are all very easy to access by train which runs along the water's edge for most of the way between Lisbon and Cascais.

These have superb beach restaurants dotted all along the way serving fresh fish, sardines, various seafood and the famous Portuguese steak roll (Prego no pão).

Otherwise, visit (by bus or cycle there on the purpose built bicycle path) the Guincho Beach on spectacular un-spoilt coastline. It offers perfect conditions for surfing.

Take a day trip to one of the Sintra beaches such as Praia Grande, Praia Maças and Praia da Adraga. Adraga Beach restaurant serves fish and seafood which tastes like they caught it just before serving it.

Gastronomy

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.

"Noisy, pricey, but very nice"

The apartment is good and spacious for 9 people, if some are children. Two must sleep on a sofa, one in a single bed, and 6 in relatively narrow double beds. A bit too pricey considering this, but th… More

"Close to the beach and to the shops (go to Linda's) Charming Flat"

We stayed here oveer my god-daughter's wedding. There was a party ranging in age from sixteen to ninety-one, all of whom were happy (really saying something!!). The flat itself is extremely well appointed, and with two teenagers it's two bathrooms were much appreciated. The flat is five minutes and loads of steps from the nearest, lovely beach, but my ninety-one-year-old ma-in-law preferred to continue along the front to Tamaraiz, which took us five minutes and is lovely - my point is, though, that if a ninety-one-year-old can do the steps from the flat to the most wonderful beaches, it is not a problem for us younger ones!
My only problem with the flat (and a minor one at that) was that the key to get in to the grounds did not work when we were there - we had an electronic key which opened the main gates, but we had only one of these, so we had to be careful, if we went out separately, to return at the same time. We made this into a game, but if you plan to stay here you might want to know that the gate is fixed before you book. Let's be clear , though, you are unlikely to find better accomodation in the area.

We would like to thank you again for staying with us and we are happy to know you had a lovely time. We would mention that the gate issue has been resolved and we are now offering 3 sets of keys to guests when there is a full house :-)
We hope to welcome you or perhaps some friends back on some future dates!
