Location

Located in Sao Pedro do Estoril. Sao Pedro is considered the birth place of surf, it is here that the first surf club in Portugal was set up. It is minutes walk to the surf beach. We are surrounded by so many different surf beaches in this area, from Sao Pedro to Carcavelos to Guincho.

We are 2 minutes walk to the train station that takes you to Lisbon in 15 minutes. Cascais town centre is a 5 minute taxi/drive away. The palace of Sintra is 20 minute away and a must visti.

Travelled as a couple

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Location, location, location! We loved the access to the beach (2 blocks) and the train (1.5 blocks). The local mini-mart and gas station provided enough weekly food supplies, and there were surprisingly quite a few restaurants within 3 blocks of the apartment that were nice as well. The apartment was cozy and the back patio was spacious. Quiet home, first floor (although a few steps are required to enter the unit) for easy coming/going, and all the utilities (water, electric, internet) worked well. Dog friendly was a huge selling point. The owners were gracious, helpful, responsive, and kind people.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Although we didn't need surf lessons, we greatly enjoyed the São Pedro Estoril "SurfSet" Surf Club. We attended the weekly exercise group surf training workouts with Vosco and enjoyed the fitness regime very much. It's a great way to meet other surfers and locals.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The place is just like in the pictures,...actually the terrace is huge and a very nice place to relax, grab a cup of coffee and just chill. The internet is fast and reliable, which is important when making long journeys and trying to coordinate the next stop.

The location is perfect. Close to Lisboa, Sintra and Cascais...also the beach is just in front, and there is a supermarket in a very close walking distance (Also big supermarkets nearby if you are travelling by car). The flat is spacious, welcoming, bright, and very "fresh" for summer nights.

We could not meet Cristina (we had read so many comments about her we know it was our loss) but she made sure we wouldn't have any issue along the way. She coordinated the delivery of the keys and she was constantly in touch with us to make sure we felt her support (and we did), ...she recommended us places to visit and responded the messages almost immediately.

Alojamiento sencillo a menos de 5 minutos la playa con supermercado y restaurantes cerca para pasar unas vacaciones relajadas en familia. Cristina y su familia muy atentos. El patio de uso privado viene muy bien para mascotas y niños. El barrio y el entorno muy tranquilos y la playa limpia y sin masificaciones.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

To begin with, concerning the house, it was more than great. The apartment has a PERFECT cleanliness, it is spacious, welcoming, bright, cozy to the point that after two days you really feel like home and, to top it all of, the backyard with its delicious fruit trees and grill adds a touch of magic with light.

Besides, no need to tell you that it is well located, I just invite you to google the street and you will see that it is perfectly between the beach of Sao Pedro do Estoril (which is great by the way) and the train station that goes from Cascais to Lisbon. In addition, the neighborhood is very secure and even very pleasant (google it and you will have an idea about that too). In short, as regards the house, you can only be pleasantly surprised because it is even better than in the description.

As regards of my host, Cristina, all I can say about her cannot really describe what she was/is. Indeed, she is truly exceptional: warm, helpful, big hearted, generous, amazing kind of person. Furthermore, non only was she flexible on the check in and out, but she also gave us lots of advice about the city and its surroundings. I was coming with my parents and my brother but for personal reasons my family had to leave in the middle of our trip so I find myself alone, but Cristina has been there for me, visiting the city with me among other things. So you should know that she is this really trustful and rare kind of person that I am now proud to have as a friend.

This place was great and provided everything we needed and more! There is a beautiful backyard with a grill. Both the beach and the train station with access to the city center of Lisboa, Belem, and the beaches of Cascais are accessible within 5 minute walking distance.
If you plan to experience the city nightlife of Lisbon, beware that the train to the apartment stops running at 1:00 am (more or less). Christina was great as well. She was available for anything we needed. She even provided us with directions on how to use the metro and was flexible with check in and check out times. I would recommend this apartment to a friend!

Cascais is the perfect place to learn how to surf. The town is surrounded by many different types of beaches. The best beginners/intermediate surf beach is Guincho (pronounced Ginchu) 5 km's north west of Cascias town. It's a beautiful kilometre long stretch of beach.

Further north are two excellent beginners beaches Praia das Macas & Praia Grande. They are well worth the trip as they will take you past Cabo da Roca, mainland Europes most Western Point with a pretty impressive cliff top view.

A few hundred metres East of Cascais is Monte Estoril beach which has a small righthand wave that breaks regularly. There is a car park at its base accessed from a slip road above.

Follow the road east of Cascais along the Tagus river (Tejo in Portuguese) towards Lisbon and you will come across beach after beach offering a vast amount of surf: Bica is a great longboarders break on Sao Pedro beach. The beach has a few surf bars and restaurants and is a great place to spend the day.

Closer to Lisbon is Carcavelos beach - as the Stormriders surf guide call it: "the original and still one of the best Portuguese surf spots". Its a very consistent beach break and home to some of Portugals best surfers.

Its also worth taking the trip across the river Tagus to Costa Caparica - driving over the spectacular Ponte 25 de Abril bridge leaving Lisbon behind you. Costa Caprica is a 30 km strip of coast with some of the most consistent surf in Portugal.
