Hello! We are a couple, journalist and photographer, passionate about traveling, gardening, recycling ... so our Shelter reflects all of this and is always in constant-change! Our goal is to provide a SHELTER where you can have a comfy sleep, cook your own fish (grilled perhaps!) with a cool white wine, take a nap in a hammock... where the view invites you to lose your thoughts. at Guincho beach, Cascais, Portugal The Shelter_En The great attraction of the house is the wonderful view and the garden, where guests can relax in a hammock, lunch or dinner and enjoy the view.

There is also a garden of vegetables that can be harvested to accompany meals. THE HOUSE...... has one bedroom, living room, bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen (with a refrigerator, stove, oven, juicer, coffee machine, washing machine clothes, dishes and all other necessary utensils).We recommend the house for two people, but are accepted up to 4 for the same price. We have a very comfy sofa bed in the living room! There is no Cable TV in The Shelter. We do have Wi-Fi, a TV and a Chromecast - a device that allows you to cast entertainment content directly from your phone to the TV. You can watch your favorite Netflix movies, youtube, TV online channels.... WHERE The house is located in the Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais, near the beauty of the Serra de Sintra and the Atlantic Ocean.By car, you'll find: - In 5 minutes, Guincho beach, very popular for surfing (with surf schools); - In 10 min., Cascais, charming little village full of restaurants, stores and bars that cater to all tastes and needs; - In 15 min., Sintra, Unesco World Heritage Site, one of the best places to visit, especially the 'old village' and Palaces (Palácio Nacional da Pena, Palácio Nacional de Sintra, among others). - In 25 min., Lisbon, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, for sure!You can use the highway (A5 Cascais-Lisboa) or you can go by train from Cascais Once in the city, you can use the subway. IMPORTANT: It's not impossible, but I must say that it isn't easy to stay at The Shelter without a car… unless you like to walk! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 14600/ALMore

We stayed in The Shelter in July. Having never been to Portugal we decided our perfect trip would include a bit of city (Lisbon) and a lot of wandering around the coast seeing smaller towns and beaches. We always prefer to choose places to stay...More
