Quinta da Marinha, in Cascais, is ready to strike the perfect balance between sport and music ahead of a feast of festivals this summer.
The five-star, multi-award-winning, family-owned resort – which opened in 1999 and was extensively remodelled in 2014 – is less than an hour away from Lisbon and boasts a wonderful setting, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and just minutes away from the history-rich town of Sintra.
It’s a sport’s enthusiast’s paradise with a superb golf course on the site and expert tuition for players of all abilities. But for an active holiday, the options are varied with guided running tours, surf lessons, hiking, biking and horse riding all available.
But another major extra attraction throughout August and September is the addition of music festivals in nearby Cascais – with the hotel running free shuttle transfers.
The Festas do Mar Festival (August 17th to 26th) is a free event with 20 bands in 10 days, street markets and vendors around the Bay of Cascais and a huge firework display on the final day.
With a handicraft fair and open-air cinema events also taking place over the course of the summer in Cascais, there is plenty to tempt holidaymakers
Quinta da Marinha, sales director, João Pinto Coelho, said: “Cascais is a fantastic place to visit in the summer with so much going on for our guests.
“There is something for everyone in terms of activities, culture and music and so much to see on our doorstep, but we also have the peaceful environment of our five-star facilities. It’s the best of both worlds.”
Part of the ‘Great Hotels of the World’ portfolio, Hotel Quinta da Marinha Resort is an ideal venue to enjoy a romantic break, hold important meetings, play golf, learn to surf, enjoy a cycling break or simply relax in luxury and comfort in the heart of nature.
Its facilities include swimming pools, tennis courts, restaurants, 11 meeting rooms, a health club, complimentary beach shuttle service and one of the most beautiful and prestigious golf courses in the region.
