Your Destination —
If the beach and ocean whet your appetite for nature, you’ll find yourself surrounded by exquisite landscape, 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.
