Vila Bicuda Cascais Reviews
Pure paradise! Sep 06, 2010
We had chosen to stay in Vila Bicuda in the small town of Cascais, because we wanted to have a comfortable, relaxing and quiet stay in the central area of Portugal, near Lisbon. The place turned out to be exactly this and a whole lot more.
Vila Bicuda is a complex with apartments and vacation homes away from the centre of Cascais. We had already read other reviews of the place on the internet, and the only downside that had been mentioned was that its location wasn’t ideal. There are no regular bus services and a taxi to the centre is around five Euro for a single trip. Since we had kept that in mind and also rented a car for our entire stay to make daytrips, this was no problem for us.
The vacation homes are absolutely beautiful, they’re very spacious, stylishly furnished and fitted with every possible comfort. There are homes in many sizes and shapes, our home had a large living room with two couches (one couch was actually a couch that can be pulled into a double bed), a fire place, a bathroom, a sleeping room with double bed and a large kitchen. There are also studio apartments and houses with more bedrooms.
The complex has a small supermarket and a bakery with bread, cakes and all sorts of sweet rolls for a very reasonable price. There’s also a Laundromat, a daycare centre, a hairdresser, an Italian restaurant, a play garden and two large swimming pools.
Take note that the studio apartments are located in the middle of the area that holds the daycare centre, bakery, supermarket, restaurant and play garden and therefore will be a bit more noisy than the vacation homes. The vacation homes are wonderfully quiet and located right next to one of the pools. There is also plenty of parking space.
We had a truly wonderful time at Vila Bicuda, it is pure paradise!
