Cascais is a lovely resort and the apartment although a walk (20-25mins) from the centre, is in a great location. The local bus is on the doorstep as well as a group of very good restaurants. The restaurants are about a 3 min walk away and are clustered around a group of bespoke market style outlets.
The apartment is spacious with good facilities and two balconies, one of which is large and gets the sun from midday through to late evening. Easily accommodates four adults. Also handy for various golf clubs in the area.
Just a few minor points to raise. There was not a welcome pack. A bit more of the basics would have been helpful, eg. kitchen roll. The shower curtain in the en-suite requires to be replaced. A second key would have been most helpful.
We had a lovely 2 week stay in Angela and Bruno's apartment. The apartment was extremely spacious, very well equipped and very clean and all the beds were very comfortable, and a lovely welcome bottle of wine too!
Angela was very helpful before and during our stay with any questions we had, and also organised a taxi transfer to and from the airport which was brilliant.
Bedding and towels were changed halfway through our stay as well. The balcony is large and gets the sun in theafternoon into the evening. The pool is a good size and was never overly busy - there were always sunbeds available..
There are some lovely restaurants at the bottom of the road overlooking the sea which we used several times. It is a lovely walk into cascais along the coast path, however if you don't want to walk there is a bus that goes from the bottom of the road (by Telepizza) that does a circular route and stops in town and at the train station for 1 Euro each.
We didn't hire a car and made good use of the circular bus, trains to Lisbon and Taxis. (All at very reasonable cost)
There is also a bike hire place at the bottom of the road and the cycle lanes are brilliant - we had a lovely bike ride to Guincho Beach (which is definitely worth a visit to watch all the surfers)
It is a great location not just for Cascais but also for visiting Lisbon (which we did a few times) and Sintra.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay in a lovely part of Portugal which was made all the better by the superb apartment with great hosts. Would definitely recommend.
Stayed at Angela's apartment for a week as a family with two teenage girls.
Apartment was ideal for us. I think it has all been said in previous reviews ... clean, really spacious, fantastic location. Quiet & shutters on windows guaranteed a great night's sleep.
The girls really enjoyed the tennis courts. Also the cycle lanes using the local bike hire.
Great restaurants nearby.
Great correspondence with Angela in organising all aspects of our holiday.
Would definitely recommend.
Angela is a great host and the apartment is very spacious, clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Parking is very handy and felt secure , although car not needed as there is a bus stop outside. A few resturants at the bottom of the road (5mins walk) which were lovely. Lidl supermarket just up the road to get you started. Pool outside was lovely with a seperate toddlers/baby pool, little chilly in October but still nice and clean. Only downside that there not being a beach that close by, we went into cascais and parked in town and used the beach there its fairly small but the water isn't choppy like at guincho beach as that's were surfers go,as we had a 2 year old it suited us better. We visited sintra Pena palace and the aquarium in Lisbon both worth a day out. Overall we had a wonderful holiday staying in Angela's apartment would highly recommend.
