Cascais or Lisbon in September?


We arrive in Portugal on Thursday.

We are spending 3 days in Porto area, then have 5 nights for Lisbon area.

If not too much out of season would like to spend some time on the coast. Not looking for nightlife - but we like boutique hotels etc.

We are wondering if good to base in Cascais (possibly Casa Vela as re previous post) to have some beach time, visit Lisbon and also Sintra...... rather than changing accomodation again.

What do people think - we're not planning to have a car and rail/bus connections look good.?

Many thanks

Hello KMJ,

This Thursday?

Great news, weather here is great now !

Cascais is great as base, from here you can go on to Sintra and Lisbon also.

There is almost no nighlife here (good for you). I don't know Casa Vela, but i can recommend this one as they have very good reviews and owners are great: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g189154-d177416…

I would recommend on getting a car, though you will have good rail and bus connections, to Lisbon and also to Sintra.


Let me know any further questions so i can help you out
