Cascais is a coastal town. It’s 30 kilometers west of Lisbon, the nation capital, with about 35,000 residents. It is a cosmopolitan and one of the richest municipalities. The former fishing village gained fame as a playgroung for the royal family, in late 19th century and early 20th century.

Cascais is located in the Estoril Coast, in the Greater Lisbon subregion and is easily reached from Lisbon by car, (A5 Lisboa-Cascais highway), or by train. It also has an airport in Tires, “Aeroporto Municipal de Cascais”. In Cascais Bay, there is a large Marina and numerous small sand beaches. Castle ruins, museums, parks, the charming cobbled streets of the historic centre, turns this village a unique place to exploit. The town has many hotels and tourist apartments as well as very good restaurants. It’s really “a treasure” to live in or for those visiting, who prefers to stay in a sophisticated environment.

Cascais is surrounded by popular beaches, such as Guincho Beach to the west, and the lush Sintra mountains to the north. Some of its shoreline is craggy, attracting tourists for its seascapes and other natural sights such as the “Boca do Inferno”. It is also becoming a popular golf destination, with over 10 golf courses nearby. Surfing, sailing, windsurfing, and kite-surfing are also popular in the region due to favorable weather, wind, and sea conditions. The famous Estoril Casino is one of the largest in Europe. Near the casino is the “Hotel Palácio” a 5-star hotel where scenes of the James Bond movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” were shot.
