My Husband and I stayed three nights at Pergola House which is a few minutes walk from Cascais train station. Sophia, Ana, Paula and Angela were the perfect hosts and soon got to know us and what room we were in and had our key ready for us on our return to the hotel. They made us feel most welcome and all spoke very good English.
We stayed in Room 21 (Flores) which is located on the 2nd Floor. The room was larger than average with twin beds and a lovely full size bathroom which had a bath with shower over, toilet, bidet, washbasin and a hairdryer. There was a large wardrobe with plenty of hanging space plus drawer space and a separate chest of drawers. The room was kept spotlessly clean. The wifi worked well both in our room and outside in the garden.
Breakfast was served from 08.00 to 10.00 and consisted of a choice of cereals, various well presented fruits on a plate, yogurts, pancakes, waffles, cheese, ham, tomatoes, scrambled egg, bacon, sausage and various different rolls and bread as well as cakes/cookies each day. There were various jams and syrup and there was also a toaster. One could help themselves to a delicious fresh orange drink or milk and hot drinks were served at the table. One could sit inside or outside and we loved sitting outside in the beautiful well kept peaceful garden. There were also drinks and snacks available during the day and there was a complimentary glass of port served in the lounge from 6.00pm/8.00pm each evening.
We travelled independently flying from London Gatwick with easyJet. EasyJet lands at Terminal 2 at Lisbon and a tightly packed courtesy bus takes you to Terminal 1. We got the Metro from the airport to Caia de Sodre station which involved a change at Alameda onto the Green Line (Verdi). It cost 1.45 Euros plus 0.50 for the Lisbon Viva Viagem card which is used to load the money on for the fare and operates the gates in/out of the Metro stations. Trains leave Caia do Sodre for Cascais every 20 mins, the fare costs 2.15 Euros single or 1.10 Euros for those age 65 and over (it is worth carrying a passport or a photocopy to confirm age if requiring a concession). The journey time from Caia do Sodre to Cascais is around 40 mins, sometimes a bit less on a semi-fast train. The best scenery is on the left hand side of the train going towards Cascais as there are lovely views of the sea and coastline. If travelling by train on the return trip allow sufficient time to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 at the airport as it is necessary to catch the free shuttle bus which departs approx every 10 minutes from outside Terminal 1. We got a taxi from Caia do Sodre station directly to Terminal 2 which took around 20 minutes and cost 12 Euros. The Hotel also offers airport transfers for 45 Euros.
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Pergola House and found an abundance of reasonably priced restaurants closeby where we ate in the evenings. There are also some good clean beaches within easy walking distance. We spent a very pleasant day sightseeing in Lisbon travelling there by train. There were lots of sightseeing buses and trams in Lisbon with departure points close to Caia do Sodre station.
We hope to return to Pergola House again in the future. In the meantime, thank you to everyone for your wonderful hospitality.
