Yesterday we took our guests on a guided coastal hike in the Cascais-Sintra Natural Park. We started at the beautiful and secluded Abano Beach and trekked up into the wildflower studded hillside. This is a circular trek and takes about 3 hours and is suitable for most hikers. The vistas are breathtaking, the flora and fauna amazing. The temperature was around 16 degrees Celsisus - perfect walking and biking weather. After the hike we stopped at Casa Guia in Cascais for lunch. Casa Guia is an old estate above the ocean cliffs which now has several lovely cafes, restaurants, shops and garden paths and is also easily accessable from the bicycle path from Cascais.
Our honeymoon guests plan to play golf the next two days at the famous Estorial Golf Course which is about 15 minute drive from our guesthouse. The internationally reknown Estoril Golf Course is the oldest and best known in Portugal. It has hosted many international Golf Championships. It is has eighteen holes and a 5,238 metre course for a Par 69 and ocean views..
The newly-wed guests plan to end their adventure vacation here by renting a GPS system and ride Colina Flora´s mountain bikes to Sintra for sightseeing the magical castles. We offer shuttle service for folks too tired to pedal back here.
