Set amidst the fragrant pine forests of the Portuguese Riviera, close to a superb sandy beach, Guincho is the ideal place for a relaxing city break, or a journey of discovery into the real Portugal.

With a pine-strewn setting behind the Guincho dunes, the parc offers you the rare opportunity to combine a beach and a city break, as the wide, sandy beach with its excellent surfing and windsurfing is just 800m away down a safe footpath, while wonderful Lisbon is only 30km away by car or bus (bus stop just outside parc entrance).

The facilities include a new pool complex, plus a range of amenities and activities from tennis courts to takeaways; with the restaurant offering great food and wine at very reasonable prices.

But then, here you are in the real Portugal, a world away from the Algarve. Guincho is close to both Cabo de Roca, the western-most tip of Europe, as well as the World Heritage Site of Sintra.

You will also find the elegant seaside resort of Cascais just 6km away, an excellent day trip that is entirely in keeping with the relaxed atmosphere you will find here.
