About the property

The Town House, in the Historic Centre of Old Cascais, is available for long term rental - 1 year renewable - from October, 2017.

The house was recently closed for major renovations, refurbishment and modernisation - including a new kitchen and service area (with new machines, oven etc), 2 new bathrooms, new floors, new wardrobes, carpets, sofas, painting etc etc - also an insulation/ damp course was implemented and new double glazed windows and french windows were fitted. A new drainage system was installed in 2015.

The attractive, friendly town house is located in the quiet, narrow cobbled-streets of the historical old town in the centre of Cascais and yet only some 200 metres from the town centre!

A new floor in the hall & living/dining areas was put in May 2014 - as well as repainting the living & dining areas and also a new fridge & dining room chairs were added. Internet facilities are available at the house - wireless net (wi-fi).

The house is fully furnished, with a private, secluded patio and BBQ, new patio chairs and table added in spring 2015. The house is ideal for a family vacation.

Cascais, once a tiny fishing village, is now a thriving tourist resort with its own yachting marina. There's still a working fishing fleet based in Cascais Bay and fish is still auctioned off to the hotels and restaurants every morning. The historic old town is full of charm and reminiscent of the quaint little fishing village of a bygone era.The nearest beach in the Bay of Cascais is 100m from the house, other beaches on the Cascais/Estoril coast are within easy walking distance. A few mins drive away is the magnificent, spectacular Guincho coastline, with sandy beaches and rocky coves.

Nearest shop is 5 mts away, it has everything you need - should you have a car parking is about 100 mtres away - and has never been a problem. Public transport in Cascais is very good - and cheap! Bicycles are available in the town - free! You just need to leave some identification. Cascais is becoming a very popular and safe holiday destination . Surf lessons and boat/fishing trips can be arranged.

Ideal holiday location for young families and the older generation! It is only a very short walk to the beaches (100 metres!), parks, marina and yacht club, shops, good bars and many restaurants and to the vibrant town centre of Cascais.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having seen other reviews on Owners Direct and Trip Advisor, we decided we liked the look and location of the town house and we were not disappointed. The owners, David & Teresa Sutcliffe, had close the property through the winter and carried out extensive upgrading, including complete refitting of both bathrooms and the kitchen to an excellent stand. The property is very well located, close to the centre of Cascais but in a quiet street with a nice, private patio for the odd barbecue. The railway and bus stations and major shopping centre are only 10 minutes walk away with cheap and regular services to Lisbon(40mins by train @ Eu4.20) and Sintra ( similar price and cost depending on route). Cascais is a pleasant town with lots of facilities, shops and restaurants to suit most tastes. We enjoyed it very much and will go again soon. Word of warning - both Lisbon and Sintra are very hilly if you are thinking of walking everywhere (you can always resort to good public transport ortry a tuk-tuk ride for a change!).

Perfect for our sailing team

  • 5 of 5

Very well presented and perfect for our crew for the World Championships as close to yacht club as well as being in the old town with heaps atmosphere, brilliant restaurants, shops, the patisserie two doors down, and the big supermarkets as well as fresh produce market within 10 to 15 mins walk. Beaches also 5 mins walk.

Colonel David most friendly and helpful with driver Sr Joao perfect for airport transfers. We enjoyed all our at home meals out in the courtyard....definitely would stay there again!

Lovely old house in the Centre of Cascias

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday in Cascais and the house was a great place to stay. It’s right in the old part of town, very quiet and traditional, but only a couple of minutes’ walk down to the town beach and the shops and restaurants. There’s also a great local café / minimarket just 20 metres away, which made it all very convenient. The house is old fashioned, but very clean and everything worked – the wifi was a real help. We didn’t have a car, but you probably don’t need one for this town. David was a very reliable and helpful owner, who showed us round, and was available locally for information, and arranging airport transfers etc. We would certainly stay here again.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house in a perfect location in the old town, very close to the beach and just a few steps to nice restaurants. Still it was quiet and calm. It was really convenient having everything near by. The patio was lovely for sunbathing and we had all our meals at home out there. The layout of the house was convenient with three nice bedrooms. It was easy and very nice to stay here. All five of us enjoyed our 11 nights' stay a lot. Thanks David.

Quiet, cozy house near everything in Cascais

  • 5 of 5

David is a sincere, attentive host. The photos are accurate; the house was very comfortable for the 3 of us, but would have easily slept 5 among the 3 bedrooms upstairs. There are many, many local restaurants with great food. We enjoyed trips into Lisbon (easy access with the train, with one leaving every 20 minutes), but especially enjoyed walking around Cabo da Roca and seeing the historic sites in Sintra, which are easily accessed via the SCOTTURB buses. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this property.

Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month. There were 5 of us, my husband and I and our 3 children. It was amply outfitted with all I needed to prepare food for our family when we were not eating out. We walked to the Cascais Market our very first morning for fresh food. We walked to the big super store for supplies. We walked to the mall for a movie. We walked to the train to go up to Lisbon. We had very friendly neighbors with Pedro just half a block away with his coffee shop, restaurant with outdoor tables, and small shop and the friendly barbershop right next door. I dropped the copies of our passports and they were picked up by one person and passed along to another to get back to us. The water is a 5 minute walk as is the park. There are city bikes just around the corner. I really could not have gotten a better location. We had plenty of room. It has a little outdoor courtyard, as well. It was very cold but that really was due to the January arrival, a cold front, and us arriving from Central America and not being prepared. There were plenty of blankets and space heaters. David is charming and helpful and kind.
