The space

The Shelter is located between the sea and the mountain, so the view is amazing. To have a drink, relax and sunbath in the garden with a beautiful sea view is unmissable! To be near Cascais, Sintra and Lisbon is a plus.

# 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.

... has one bedroom, living room, bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen (with a refrigerator, stove, oven, juicer, coffee machine, washing machines, and all other necessary utensils).

We can provide a baby cot and we also have a very comft sofa bed (double) in the living.

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....

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 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 (check timetables here: 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! We've a two-seater car available for a very friendly price!

The The Shelter is rented for a minimum of 5 nights. However, if you want accommodation for a shorter time, please contact us.

The house of petra and costantino is a lovely place for staying with a family and for surfing/ kitesurfing. Its only a small nice drive to guincho. The garden is great for a quiet hang out and for playing for the kids.

The Shelter is an amazing place and perfectly located for those that want to be away from busy Lisbon / Cascais but still with fast access to these places and as well Sintra and the closed by beaches.
