“Very nice alternative to a hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We stayed here for 8 days, 4 adults and our daughter at 1½ years. The place is perfect for relaxing holidays and the infrastructure offers a bakery, a supermarket, laundry service and a hairdresser. We had a 2-story-2-bedroom-apartment in the remote part of the condominio. Everything is neat and the apartment is fully equipped with kitchen, dish-washer and laundry machine. Only downside is that the stairs are not child-friendly as the outer railing is non-existing. The pool is very good and has a clear division between shallow and deep water which is very nice for the little one. Definately recommendable for families with children.

Stayed in a 1 bed duplex with heavily pregnant wife and 4 year old daughter. The place was huge with an upstairs bedroom and large bathroom. Downstairs a full kitchen, separate toilet and huge living room diner. There was a terrace out the back through patio doors which had table and chairs. Beyond that was a grass area across to a lovely pool. There is an excellent Bakery on site and a small but well stocked supermarket. Everyone I dealt with on site were very helpful and friendly. We had a hire car and found the location excellent. 10 mins to Cascais and some good restaurants. 30 mins from Sintra and Lisbon both must sees. 30 mins from some wonderful wild west coast beaches. Try Adraga if you like your beaches with a Cornish feel. This was our first time to Portugal and really enjoyed it. We expected a hot dry Spanish sort of country but found a lush green beutiful area with loads to see and friendly people. Will definetly go back.

Room Tip: If you're with kids ask to be around pool no.1 which has the childrens pool attached.

First impressions were not good. We arrived late to be greeted by a rather surly receptionist. This was the low point. When we got to our Villa (a 3 bed) in the dark, it was clean, spacious and well furnished. We woke to find it overlooking the gardens and pool. The pool was one of two which were clean and well maintained - great for children that can swim.The development centres around a small square. There is a busy and very acceptable patisserie which serves great coffee, pasteries and snacks. The restaurant is currently unlet which is not made clear on the website. The reception acts as a very good concierge service, recommending and booking some excellent local restaurants. They were also willing to help with any reasonable request.

If you want a high quality in a well located and appointed development then Vila Bicuda is a great choice. Quincho beech is only 10 minutes away.

This was a really great place to come for our last foreign holiday pre-baby. We loved all of it. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. The rest of the flat was spacious and very comfortable with a lovely little balcony which we used whenever the weather allowed us to.
There was a nice little mini mart on site which supplied us will all our needs including the huge oranges we used every day to make fresh OJ. There was also a wonderful little bakery/cafe which sold all the wonderful Portuguese pastries. We probably visited there at least twice a day. The rest of the site is very green and well laid out with two swimming pools which were just great to lounge around. The staff were all very helpful and patient, especially when I needed them to translate a takeaway menu.

Cascais itself is also very pretty with lots of pretty little streets to walk around with plenty of bars and restaurants. It also made a good base to see other sites in the area including Sintra which we did twice.

We loved every minute of our time there and only wished we'd booked longer.

Well because it lies in a nicely small village, near golfcourses, with very good supplies. Really very wide clean villa (and that for only 2 (or 3) persons). Also the villa-park has good supplies, such as its own good bakery / lunchroom and small supermarket. Also deliveryservice for excellent local food. Good operating base for the city Lisbon. Service aimed staff. The surprise was that it was more better than shown on the pictures ( that could be improved) , most advised!

Room Tip: You got also villa's near the swimmingpool.

Very pleasant place, huge territory, clean, quite, beautiful. Recommended a car. But taxi from Cascais station costs just about 5 euros.
Big, full equipped kitchen. Pretty much space for two persons . Service is very helpful and friendly. There is a minimarket on the territory where guests can by something they need, but prices for goods are higher then in supermarkets that are in Cascais. We were very pleased being there.
