Cascais, Lisbon Coast

Luxury Cascais Holidays

Arty beachside town


Cascais is much more than its pretty, fishing-town exterior would have you believe. Its pedestrianised old town is lined with charming restaurants and designer boutiques, and is home to lush green parks and grand 19th-century homes.

Cultural types should make a beeline for the Condes de Castro stately home and Paula Rego art gallery, while photographers might want to check out the Boca de Inferno cliff formation for a great photo opportunity. As for nightlife, it's a medley of al fresco restaurants, lively jazz bars and Marbella-esque cocktail lounges.

Looking to explore further? Enjoy a day trip to Lisbon - trains can get you to the capital in just 40 minutes.

Louise Burling

Catch a train from Cascais to Lisbon for the day - they run every half an hour and take around 40 minutes. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world and has so much to see and do - historical sights, museums, trendy shopping malls, street cafes, bars. I absolutely loved my time here and would highly recommend a visit.
