We stayed in DV Guesthouse without a hire car and found it easy to get around by public transport or taxi and to enjoy Estoril/Cascais. DV is a few minutes walk to the beach, plenty of cafés bars and restaurants nearby, and a pleasant 2km walk from the beach to Cascais via the seafront promenade. Taxi cost is about €5 from Cascais if you dont feel like walking back.
The guesthouse is very relaxing, a large sitting room with TV, music, books and balcony as well as very comfortable beds. A continental breakfast can be had at a small additional cost.
Our stay was greatly enhanced by the personal service offered by Fernando, who is a fount of knowledge on the area, Portugal and many other matters besides. In addition to thoughtful and helpful answers to our questions, Fernando suggested other activities in the area which he thought would interest us and helped us to accomplish them. The guesthouse is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, but it is the kindness, helpfulness and attention to detail of the host which makes it special..More
