We Love

  • Boasting majestic views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho 5* is a boutique hotel built on the site of a 17th-century fortress.
  • Situated in the stunning coastal region of Cascais, only a 30-minute drive from the capital of Lisbon, this is a tranquil European paradise.
  • Treat yourself to lunch or dinner at the on-site Michelin starred restaurant and marvel at the expansive sea views.

Your Destination

Practically nestled on the beautiful Guincho beach and overlooking the awe-inspiring the Atlantic Ocean, the Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho 5* enjoys one of the most dramatic hotel settings imaginable. You’ll feel in another world, but have easy and fast access to Lisbon just 30 minutes away and the centre of Cascais just 10 minutes from your hotel. If the beach and ocean whet your appetite for nature, you’ll find yourself surrounded by exquisite landscapes, such as wild seashore, and the lush mountains of Sintra in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

If you want to enjoy the contrast of the urban, you’ll find the chic seaside towns of Cascais, and Estoril, with one of the biggest casinos in Europe, only minutes away. Sintra, a magical UNESCO World Heritage site with many fairytale castles and villages in and around it, is also only 20 minutes away on a scenic road through the mountains of the natural park. This region is also considered as one of the finest in Portugal for golfing, with many of the best golf courses in the country in proximity to the hotel.

Originally serving a classic French fare, Portuguese products and traditions have been gaining more and more prominence in Fortaleza do Guincho.
