Estoril Travel Guide

by our Portugal expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyLong before the package tour was invented, Estoril and its cosmopolitan clientele was the Portuguese answer to the French Riviera, with many saying ‘surpassed’ rather than ‘rivalled’. Because of the country’s neutrality it became a haven for a host of European rulers during WW II. While now having far broader appeal, the innate ‘style’ remains and one of the key buildings is still the Bond-film-setting 1930’s Casino. In latter years, of course, golf has dramatically increased Portugal’s appeal and Estoril’s stretch of coast offers plenty of scenic and challenging venues. Even with its many attractions, Estoril is within easy striking distance of the capital Lisbon and other historic and beautiful towns such as Sintra.
