About the property

Apartment in Estoril, Nr. Cascais, Lisbon Coast, Portugal - Conveniently Located 6 Minute Walk To The Beach

Lovely light and spacious 2/3 bedroom first floor apartment with shared pool and underground garage near Casino Estoril. Beach and train station with trains to Lisbon and Cascais a 6 minute walking distance. Beautiful golf courses a short drive away. 1 supermarket and several shops within easy walking distance. The Estoril Congress Centre is a 2 minute walk and the newly opened Banyon Tree Spa is a 5 minute walking distance. Ideal place to lounge by the pool, go to the beach or spend time discovering the delights of the region, eg the most westerly point of Europe, the world heritage town of Sintra, the old fishing village of Cascais which boasts the Paula Rego Museum or the beautiful city of Lisbon with its seven hills and wonderful old buildings and museums.

About Julia Wood

I live in Surrey. Both my grown-up children have left home. Before my husband passed away in 2016, we loved spending time in Portugal where we enjoyed swimming in the pool every day before a latish breakfast, walking to Cascais along the seafront and spending time with our local friends. Now I go with my daughter and baby grandson and we love watching him play in the sand.

Julia Wood purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Julia Wood chose Costa do Estoril - Cascais area

I was brought up in Portugal and spent many happy summer holidays in Estoril and so we decided to buy this apartment and use it as our second home. Estoril is a very pleasant area not only for its beach but for its big garden with very old and tall palm trees. It is an area very much sought after by many royals in exile during the second world war. Casino Estoril is the biggest Casino in Europe and, apart from gambling, offers shows, theatre and art exhibitions; you can have a coffee or a cocktail in the evenings whilst listening to live music.

What makes this apartment unique

Our property is conveniently located for an easy walk to the beach and the train station to Lisbon and Cascais, the supermarkets and restaurants and a pharmacy, bank and newsagents. The building has an underground car park with free parking reserved for this apartment and is served by two lifts. The swimming-pool is conveniently located on the same floor as our flat meaning it is unnecessary to change at the poolside.

a superb comfortable apartment excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a super stay at Julia's apartment. It had every comfort for a family - including beach toys and a great library. We had the glorious sunny pool virtually to ourselves and the clean and sparkly Estoril beach and bathing pool were only a short stroll away. Julia was always helpful and accessible. We'd recommend a stay here to anyone!!!

Merci encore à Julia pour l'accueil (du début à la fin), à Dona Lina pour sa gentillesse.

Lovely apartment in central Estoril

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely - very spacious and well equipped. The pool was an added bonus! It was 8 minutes to the beach and nearest supermarket, with lots of restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance. We stayed for 10 days in July 2016 with two teenage daughters. The owner was incredibly helpful, providing us with lots of information before we arrived and responding to any queries really quickly, as well as leaving us a welcome bottle of wine for our arrival! Estoril is a lovely part of Portugal - great beaches and choice of restaurants and, of course, the casino but also close enough to Lisbon if you fancy a day of sightseeing. We didn't hire a car but did not feel we needed to as we had a good choice of taxis, buses (including open topped sightseeing buses) and a train station with a regular service to both Lisbon and Caiscais. Would recommend and hope to visit again ourselves.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Clean and cozy apartment with everything you need, the kitchen was very well equipped. Conveniently close to bus and train routes. And also private parking in the garage. Julia was very helpful and help was always available at the lobby by the entrance. The pool was a nice bonus.

Lovely, spacious comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Estoril after spending a week in Julia & Steve's beautiful apartment. From booking to our stay Julia was very helpful and the apartment is fully equipped with everything you could need. The apartment is across from the casino and is 10mins walk to the beach. Estoril is lovely to walk around, you can take a leisurely stroll along the sea front to Caiscais - very pretty. There is also excellent train service to Lisbon. Would love to visit the apartment and area again and would 100% recommend this lovely accommodation. Thanks Julia and Steve for helping make some happy family memories. The Hogg family ps I can't decide which house I like best in Caiscais- red or blue as they are both amazing 😌
