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.
i have 3 children 22, 18 and 16: Would be firat time in Cascai.Is there enough night life to keep the two older ones happy? If they´re happy so will I be!
Can anyone help me with bus or train connections and times to get from Lisbon airport to Cascais. I like to have my route bur/train numbers and times all written down before i travel. Would be great if anyone knows these please, so i know what to look for and where to go when i arrive later this month!
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.
Hi-I am going to Cascais for just a few days next month, flying in to Lisbon.

Is it easy to get a train from cascais to porto?

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,
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)
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?
9h47 Porto - Campanha
2h35 €39,50 €27,50
U 12h27 Oriente
TC 12h51 Alcantara-Terra
U 13h15 Alcantara-Mar
U 13h37 Oeiras
Some time ago I wrote atip about the big park where the Museu Condes de Castro Guimaraes is located. I am not sure about the name of this park. Is this Parque Municipal da Gandarinha, or Parque Marechal Carmona?
do they allow mobility scooters on train from lisburn to estoril (the one i have
is about the smallest you can get)
