Just back from a family holiday with our 2 children age 13 and 10 in Carcavelos.This apartment is in a complex, which includes a hotel, with its own small shopping centre, food court and pool. There is a supermarket which sells just about everything! The apartment itself is first class. Very clean, modern furnishings, fully equipped... we wanted for nothing.
The owner's uncle, Manuel, took us to and from the airport for a very reasonable charge. He is a wonderful chap, who showed us all the amenities in and around the apartment, and gave us many tips on getting around.
We didn't hire a car-there is no need. The train station is 5 minutes away, and trains run every 15 minutes to Lisbon and Cascais. The beach is 5 minutes walk.It has some lovely restaurants(only thing to note-they do tend to close up quite early-not a place for 'nightlife')
Highly recommend this place for a quiet beach holiday, with great sightseeing
only a short train ride away. mehr
