    • Cascais hotel suggestion?

      by x07afb Online Now Jul 5, 2011 at 2:33 PM

      My wife and I are planning a trip to Cascais for a couple of days as part of a trip to Portugal in September. I am trying to book a hotel in the area that will meet all of our needs. Particularly, could anyone recommend a hotel that is firmly situated close to the beach, but is also walking distance from a nice selection of restaurants? One hotel that I was looking at which looks quite nice is Hotel Cascais Miragem. The reviews are quite favourable, and I was just wondering if anyone in this group had any experiences there?

      Also, would it be possible to use Cascais as a base for Lisbon? If we enjoy the feel of Cascais, I’m thinking it might be nice to come back there in the evenings if we decide to make one or two daytrips to Lisbon. I’m just wondering if anyone else has tried this plan? Thanks in advance.

    • Life in Cascais for a Japanese-American Family

      by buckrodgers Online Now Sep 17, 2010 at 12:22 PM

      I was curious what life in Cascais might be like for a Japanese-American family (elderly mother, young grandson)?

      Are the people in this area quite tolerant, without any 'fringe groups' who may be condescending/hostile towards those of a different ethnic group? I've learned that while the majority of people are usually open-minded, it only takes a small group (e.g. xenophobes/skinheads) to ruin it.

      I've read that there are many tourists and a large ex-pat population here, so it sounds like a fairly relaxed, cosmopolitan area, but any thoughts/personal observations would be appreciated.

      I'd also appreciate any general observations on what life in Cascais is like for retirees.

      Thank you.

      Hi-I am going to Cascais for just a few days next month, flying in to Lisbon.
      As time is short was hoping there was a direct airport bus but some forums say this is not running? Would it be best to pre book a transfer or get a taxi at the airport and about how much should I expect to pay?
      many thanks.

      Safe place to park a car

      by matcrazy1 Online Now May 14, 2009 at 2:35 PM

      Where to park a car for 4 days/nights in Cascais? Are there any safe underground parkings in the area? How much is it? Well, the parking may be locked/closed at night - I am not going to use my car during my stay in Cascais.

      Next Wednesday my wife Urszula (matcrazy0) and I start fantastic trip (I can't wait :-) from Poland to Euromeet in Cascais. Surely, as always, we will travel by car. We are going to visit northern Spain and Portugal on the way there and back (+ maybe Bordeaux, Biarritz and generally Burgundy in France). It's 3400 km one way! Unfortunatelly our centrally located hotel in Cascais (Pergola House) doesn't guarantee any parking place. Hmm... two weeks ago I parked my car overnight in northern France on a public paid parking and I (and 7 other cars) had flat tires in the morning. That's why I ask (being warned of car burglaries as well) and I worry about it.

      Greetings and hugs,
      Matt.

      Questions about practical things for the Euromeet

      by marielexoteria Online Now May 8, 2009 at 11:10 PM

      The Euromeet is approaching and I can only say "woohoo!" - at the same time it's a little scary for me, as a newbie not knowing what to expect. And this is the first solo trip I'm doing where I'm not staying at somebody's place...so I have some (dumb) questions:

      - I read the Euromeet page regularly. I assume the CP tickets aren't valid on Carris buses or trams and to use those we have to buy bus/tram tickets, right? Or is there a card/ticket valid on both?

      - Are there fountains with drinkable water like in Rome, or where could I refill a bottle if I bring one with me?

      - Not exactly related to Cascais, but when I arrive at Cais do Sodré, how do I go to the Hard Rock Café Lisbon (Avenida da Liberdade, 2)? I collect t-shirts and would like to buy them on my private time (I don't wanna carry more stuff than I have to on the Lisbon tour :P)

      TIA guys

      I was on the train site looking for how to get from Porto to Cascais. Could someone please "translate". This is one of the better connections (less transfers) - there are four transfers, two in Alcantara alone. (see below).

      - Is this correct?
      - Are those places where the train is tranferring *safe* for a woman alone?
      - Is the scenery from Porto worth taking the train, or should I just fly to Lisbon and catch something into Cascais?
