New year, same motivation, provide the safest and most fun environment for our guests! The 2021 season starts on April 5th and we couldn't be happier to have you soon with us :)
1) Portugal as a safe destination.
After dealing very well with COVID-19 the first time (March 2020), Portugal suffered a lot with it this winter. However, we quickly implemented the right measures and had one of the most restricted lockdowns in the entire Europe. Luckily it all worked out very well and we are now in a good and safe position to slowly reopen and be ready for another season!
The Tourism of Portugal, since day one, worked very hard to create certificates and measures to assure safe tourism in the entire country, building confidence in our markets. The best prove was the amazing 2020 season that we had, against all the odds.
We are now even more experienced on how to deal with this pandemic and sure that we have all the tools to receive our tourists in the most safest way!
2) Why Cascais?
Due to its geography, Cascais is surrounded by ocean and hills. There is plenty of nature around and most of the area is a natural reserve. This factors generate less population density and a lower rate of contagious. Our Villa is located in the north of Cascais, where the Sintra-Cascais National Park starts and the trees substitute the houses. There is a sense of ''countryside'' in the Village where the house is and plenty of space to go for empty walks. The connection with Lisbon is also very easy and fast, allowing to avoid extra contacts on the way here.
In addition to this geographic advantage, Cascais was one of the councils in Portugal that invested more money and resources in fighting this pandemic.
Please check out all the beautiful surroundings of Cascais HERE.
3) Big Villa, not so many guests.
We are very lucky to have this beautiful and spacious Villa to offer you :) Our common areas are very well ventilated and large. The high celling of the living room and the division in different areas, allow multiple guests to enjoy it without being on top of each other. The rooms and beds are designed to give a sense of space and freshness. The highlight of the house is the garden and big pool, where everyone can find their little corned under the Portuguese sun.
To give an extra space to everyone we defined some rules at the Villa and Surf Lessons. You can read them all HERE. One of the most important is the reduction to 50% occupancy, meaning that the house will have less people for you to safely enjoy it :)
4) Windy Guincho and early lessons: YES PLEASE!
The nightmare of windy Guincho will work in our favor this time. The last scenario we want is a beach full of people and no space to breath. Due to his size and climate (windy & fresh), Guincho is a nightmare for beach lovers who want to chill and sunbath. However, it always has waves and allows us to enjoy super fun surf lessons :) If we go early in the morning, we can still catch clean green waves and not so many people.
5) We had the BEST 2020 season :)
The pandemic is not new anymore and nothing better to prove how well we deal with it than showing our 2020 season. Against all predictions, our lovely guests showed up and we had the best time! The video bellow shows a bit of the Villa, surf sessions and activities environment :)
Another good example of trust are the testimonials of the 2020 guests. Please read them all in our TripAdvisor page HERE.
6) A new member in the family - Cascas centre apartment.
In order to expand our accommodation offer and provide a more private option (even more important nowadays), we have a brand new Surf Cascais apartment located in Cascais centre. The building is in a quiet residential area and have all the amenities you need to feel at home. You can choose the Surf Package you want or simply stay and have a few surf lessons, we will take care of everything!
Read everything about the new apartment HERE.
7) We will continue to take the right measures.
