We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this apartment. Our group consisted of 3 adults, 2 teenagers and a 7 year old.
The apartment itself was ultra-modern and had every facility we required. The bedrooms were air-conditioned, there was free wi-fi (for unavoidable Facebook) and the fridge dispensed chilled water and crushed ice; a big hit with our 7 year old! We received maid service 3 times during the week we were there.
The complex consists of 3 apartment blocks, 2 outdoor pools, an indoor pool, gym and sauna- all were used. The apartment complex is about a 15 minute gentle walk from the centre of Cascais.
The town itself is lovely with plenty of good shops, a great market and good restaurants.The beaches are o.k, however we preferred lazy days around the pool.We chose Cascais because it was easy to get to by public transport from Lisbon Airport. You just take the airport bus to the station and then a 30 min train journey to Cascais.
If you want to sight-see, Sintra (a world heritage site) and Lisbon are 30 mins away by either bus or train.
We went at the end of August and the temperature was just right. It was hot, however the prevailing sea breeze meant that we were never uncomfortable.
Pedro ( the owner) was helpful, even when I accidentally left my camera in a taxi (it was returned).
So if you like authentic Portugal, good food and a hassle-free holidays I would recommend both these apartments and Cascais itself.
