Why go to Estoril

The upmarket seaside city of Estoril is a perfect holiday choice for those who love sandy beaches, excellent restaurants and grand old buildings that fall under a cloak of bright blue skies.

Lying less than 20 miles from Lisbon, the nation's capital, there is plenty to do and see during holidays in Estoril. Fly into Lisbon International Airport (LIS) and hire a car to get your adventure under way in this lovely corner of Portugal.

The fascinating architecture and lively culture of this resort mesh perfectly to create an intriguing and beguiling break in the sunshine. The city enjoys year-round warm weather and has become a popular choice for Brits looking to boost their vitamin D intake during winter.

The busy coastal road winds through Estoril, making reaching the resort a doddle; you might also remember the resort's name as it was home to the Portuguese Grand Prix until the late 1990s. Though F1 drivers don't screech around the track these days, motor sports events are still held at the venue. Lounge on the beautiful sun-drenched beaches of Estoril, play on the city's fantastic golf course or find shade under the trees of Parque do Estoril, which sits just above the beaches. When you've had enough of the great outdoors, head inside for the thrills of Casino Estoril. Reputed to be a meeting place for spies and royals during the second world war, it's said that this grand gambling establishment inspired James Bond's adventures in Casino Royale.
