Lisbon's Riviera

Just over 30 minutes from Lisbon along the coast of Estoril, the Riviera of Lisbon, we find the smaller cities of Estoril and the old fishing village of Cascais - known for their sunny climates, relaxing beaches and golf courses. Here you’ll find charming little bed and breakfasts, alongside elegant, modern hotels with all the facilities to cater for a relaxing break, or an action-packed conference.

The seaside restaurants offer a privileged view of the coastline – perfect for watching the sunset with a glass of wine and the local seafood delicacies.

If you venture out of the city, popular attractions include: a day-trip to Lisbon; Cabo da Roca – mainland Europe’s most western point; Sintra, with its fairy-tale like palaces. All are easily reachable by car, public transport or through organised excursions. Alternatively, you could take a boat trip to enjoy lunch at sea. When night falls, you could even try your luck in the Estoril’s famous casino – the inspiration for Ian Flemming’s James Bond book “Casino Royal”.
