Cascais is a Great Destination for Rental Accommodation Holidays

The Portuguese royal family used to have a Cascais holiday home up until the beginning of the twentieth century. Taking a look at this beautiful region explains why. It is a picturesque town on the Atlantic coast, and has grown from being a small but attractive fishing village into a flourishing and sophisticated suburb of the capital city, Lisbon. It has kept the culture and good vibe but has added all the facilities needed for visitors to enjoy themselves when staying in Cascais holiday accommodation.

Things to Do in Cascais

There is a nice youthful vibe to Cascais. There are restaurants and cafes lining the streets and along the beach and only super fresh produce is dished up. Try out the local delicacy, grilled sardines, which are usually available from markets near your Cascais holiday home.

Most visitors come to Cascais for the beaches and there are several lovely beaches nearby, including the town’s main beach. Those who don’t mind walking can take the fifteen minute stroll along the promenade to reach Sao Joao. Drivers can get out a little further to find the surfing beach in Praia da Guincho to test their prowess on the water, or to explore the famous sand dunes and caves.

There is a World Heritage park at Sintra-Cascais which most people love or, for quiet times, just hang out in the town at the local cafes and eateries. The delightful Palatio de Condo de Castro Guimaraes has exhibitions of the finds of Grutas de Alapraia for history buffs, and those who love everything natural will want to see the Boca do Inferno along the coast where the water dashes onto the rocks and have formed caves and blow holes galore. There are great photo opportunities here for those who are staying in Cascais holiday rentals.

Portugal is known for having wonderful golf courses and golf enthusiast staying in Cascais villas can try their hands at the difficult Estoril Penha Longa or Quinta de Beloura courses, amongst others.

Other Places of Interest

Estoril – just a short way along the Costa Estoril, visitors will find some of the most beautiful beaches, finest seafood restaurants and best golf courses anywhere on the coast of the Atlantic. For those staying in Cascais accommodation, there is also the Estoril Casino if anyone fancies a little flutter.

Sintra is the historic centre of Costa Estoril. The royal palaces and the Moorish fortress (Castelo dos Mouros) and the old town make for a great day out.

The weather in Cascais

Summers last from May until the end of September so people tend to book Cascais holiday villas for long periods. Temperatures range around a very comfortable 30C making this great weather for spending time at the beach.

Getting There

To get from New Zealand or Australia to Portugal, it is best to fly straight into London first. From the UK, there are no less than twenty six airports which service the Lisbon area. This may give holiday makers a chance to see a little of Britain first and then hop down to this beautiful country and the Cascais holiday villa already booked. To Lisbon, allow around three hours for the flight. Look out for special charters for rock bottom prices.
