Have you ever been to Cascais?

Renowned for its glorious stretch of white, sandy beach, myriad of shopping opportunities and cosmopolitan vibrancy, the former fishing village of Cascais has reinvented itself into a refined seaside resort and one of Lisbon’s most sophisticated destinations.

Snuggled between the sun-dappled shores of the Cascais bay and Sintra’s dramatic mountain range, this stylish coastal town is situated just a few miles from the mouth of the Tagus estuary and captures the attention of visitors year-round with its delightful maritime feel and contemporary charm.

Historically, Cascais is best remembered as an elegant summer retreat for 19th Century Portuguese kings and a haven for European royalty who sought refuge in the country’s neutral territory during World War II. However, while time has shaped this scenic resort into a glamorous centre of culture, nightlife and top-quality living, Cascais has managed to retain the splendour of its seafaring age through its elegant fortresses, lighthouses and 17th Century citadel.

"I was staying in Lisbon and wanted a day out to see Sintra and the surrounding areas. Hugo was our guide and driver and he was so great. He tailored the timing (as much as was possible, of course) to our speed and interests, and made the day seem like it was designed for us. We have a deep background in European history and he met all of our questions with a detailed answer with cheerful smile. Thanks for a great day Hugo!"

"Passare da Sintra con la sua atmosfera magica, mistica e quasi surreale, a quella selvaggia, suggestiva, da ‘fine del mondo’ di Cabo da Roca, per poi improvvisamente ritrovarsi a Cascais cittadina colorata con sole e spiagge piene di surfisti... e per finire il Palacio Nacional di Queluz e i suoi meravigliosi giardini ... che dire ... di per sé un’esperienza davvero straordinaria ed emozionante. Ma ciò che l’ha resa davvero unica ed indimenticabile è stata la nostra guida Mauro, con la sua competenza, la sua sensibilità, la sua gentilezza e l’amore per il suo paese... nonché superlativo fotografo! Davvero INDIMENTICABILE"

"Well spent 1/2 day learning about Sintra and the palaces. Visited the Pena Palace and the Quinta Ragaleira, both very interesting. Our guide Eduardo was excellent! Very knowledgable of the history but managing to crack jokes the whole time. We had a great time!"
