“Lovely Apartment and Town!”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in June 2016

Cascais was a perfect holiday destination for our family (2 adults, 2 children). This lovely apartment is very central, close to the shops, beaches, restaurants and the train station. This was ideal for getting into Lisbon. The Portfolio Portugal staff made us feel very welcome and could not have been more helpful! Recommended.

“Great appartment!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Everything was easy from the initial booking, to being collected from the airport and actually staying in the apartment! The team at Portugal Portfolio were very helpful and attended to everything that we needed.

The apartment is very centrally located near to all the restaurants, train station and shops which we loved (not having a car). Despite being on quite a busy street the flat was very quiet and overlooked a few houses and other buildings. The apartment was huge, spacious, modern and clean. We loved that the kitchen had a great dishwasher, washing machine and that there were the facilities and equipment to cook if we wanted too.

Only negative we found in the apartment was that there is only air-conditioning in the lounge and no fans in any of the bedrooms! It was mid twenties whilst we were there and found it slightly warm at night! Otherwise we would highly recommend the flat and would definitely return to it.

“Central, spacious apartment in Cascais with modern decor and everything you need”

We were a family of 2 adults and 4 kids spending a week in Cascais and wanting to visit Lisbon most days but we didn't want to hire a car so were looking for somewhere with good public transport links but close to the beach and centre of Cascais. Valbom Apartment was perfect for us as it's a minutes walk from the station for the coastal train to Lisbon , for the first few days of our visit there was a train workers strike so we were forced to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Cascais and the local beaches instead which actually worked out better. The apartment itself is very spacious with plenty of clothing storage space which is great when travelling with a large family. It's decorated in a simple, modern style which we liked and although some of the fittings weren't perfect, it was spotlessly clean. The balcony is very pleasant for a morning coffee in the sun and some fresh air. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need, kettle, toaster, oven, hob, microwave, large fridge freezer so if you do want to go to the nearby Cascais shopping or Jumbo supermarket and buy food to self-cater it's easy. The dish washer worked, a big plus when you want to relax on holiday. There was also a washer and dryer there although we didn't need to use them. The wifi in the apartment was good in the living room, not great in the bedrooms.
I booked direct with Portugal Portfolio who were really helpful and recommended the best apartment for our requirements, set up airport transfers both ways for us which was really stress free as the driver also had the keys to let us in to the apartment. Their information book in the apartment was full of useful information, I'd definitely book with them again.

“Fabulous Location, close to everything.”

We stayed as a family this summer for two weeks and found the apartment was really nice and had everything we needed (even a Nespresso Coffee machine). The apartment was clean and spacious and in the heart of the town, next to the beach, shops and restaurants. The only thing I felt needed updating in relation to this apartment was the sofa as it was a pale coloured material which did not look very clean. I feel leather is a better option for rented properties. Otherwise, fabulous apartment and would definitely recommend it.

“Can't get a better location”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This apartment is well furnished with modern finishes, comfortable beds and all the kitchen needs you could ask for. Owner/manager was very good at communication and providing us with anything we needed during our time in the city, including beach recommendations, surf board rentals, restaurants etc. The location is right in the heart of town and all the good restaurants, and about a 10 min drive from Guincho beach, which is great for surfing and relaxing. Hope to get back to Cascais very soon.
