Dreaming about a luxury summer mansion by the sea?
Well there’s no need to buy your own one – on the west coast of Portugal you can relax by the Atlantic Ocean and stay in a large beautiful house from the 19th century any time you want – just check in at the boutique hotel Farol!
Farol is a mesmerizing hotel in Cascais, just a short drive from Lisbon.
This town used to be a tourist destination for kings, queens and people with tons of money and today maintains its glamorous ambiance.
The charming villa was built in 1890 for Count of Cabral and when it was remade into a hotel, a new wing in contemporary design was added.
There are only 33 rooms which creates a cosy and intimate atmosphere.
Various famous fashion designers have been involved in the makeover of the house.
Each were given their own room to design, so even if you come back here every summer your experience can be totally new staying in a different room.
The hotel is situated next to the marina, a short walk away from the charming historic centre.
Many people travel here to enjoy the great waves on a surf board or kite board, or to enjoy some great golfing.
But don’t feel that you have to keep busy while in Cascais.
This is a place where you easily can leave your every day life behind and enjoy carefree days without an agenda.
Start the lazy days with a long breakfast and then let the day pass by slowly, on a sun bed by the ocean.
The scenic landscape is breathtaking and you’ll enjoy the ocean view from most of the spacious comfortable rooms, or while hanging out on the terrace.
When the sun gets too strong jump in the cooling water or take a siesta.
And when craving something to eat later on you can enjoy a classic afternoon tea with scones and finger sandwiches.
Or just open up that bottle of champagne!
The hotel is well known for their amazing cuisine.
At the Mediterranean restaurant Mix you’ll get fresh fish and seafood while sitting down in a wonderful room with an amazing view.
