Red Carpet Luxury Lifestyle – Cascais Experiences
Cascais is located just 20km from Lisbon airport between the picturesque Sintra mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. For the ultimate personalised service and privacy, you can fly into Tires airport just 15 minutes from central Cascais.
Known as the “Portuguese Riviera”, a former fishing village which became a cosmopolitan resort when the Portuguese king made it his retreat in the late 1800s. Cascais is a blend of royal palaces, stunning 19th century architecture, great food, and fabulous facilities. It’s the place where stories of Ian Fleming and James Bond mix with creative cocktails, fresh oysters, and lobster brunches with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Cascais doesn’t immediately spring to mind when considering a luxury destination, but it can provide an abundance of luxury experiences thanks to the award-winning Red Carpet Luxury Lifestyle who opened premises in Cascais in 2018. CEO Alan Rogers explains, Cascais is a great destination for either a short break or a long holiday and if you’re looking to treat and pamper yourselves after over two years of travel restrictions, then Cascais is the place as you’ll in good hands.
Driving classic cars along the unspoilt coast road up into the mountains is staggeringly beautiful. Alternatively, choose our chauffeur driven 1954 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn, (once owned by the Duke of Windsor) for a personal shopping experience in the best boutiques in Lisbon. Allow us to provide special access to museums, art galleries, the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art, Lisbon’s nightlife and rooftop bars, and exquisite dining experiences in those hideaway bars and restaurants we have partnered with.
If you prefer life on the ocean or river, we’ll curate a sailing or powerboat cruise passing under the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge with views over Cristo rei, the 16th century tower of Belem and Padrão dos Descobrimentos, where ships departed to explore and trade with India and the Orient. To complete the experience, enjoy cocktails onboard and allow chef to prepare a private dinner. It is the perfect scenery for watching magical sunsets prior to sleeping in comfort on the gentle waters of the Tejo.
If you’re looking to relax and chillout on golden sandy beaches, lets us arrange a visit to any of the 17 beautiful well-maintained beaches, (we of course have our favourite). If you fancy a dip, do remember it is the Atlantic so it will be very refreshing. After a relaxing beach experience, be pampered in one of the luxurious spas and allow our wellness professionals to take away all the stresses and strains of everyday life.
For a bit more excitement, we’ll help you explore the stunning rocky coastline scattered with viewpoints where you can picnic with local wines, cheeses, charcuterie, and local artisan breads, with desserts ranging from local pastries to hand made chocolates. All these delicacies are prepared fresh by our partner in Cascais, Food Lab. Alternatively, be wined and dined at a rocky sea front restaurant that offers the freshest of seafoods with spectacular views of the Atlantic.
A must is a visit to Casal Sta. Maria vineyard that dates to 1755, a stunning hilltop manor house overlooking the mountains that slope down to the Atlantic. The owner, our dear friend Nicholas will personally welcome you prior to Joao the perfect host, who will enlighten and entertain you with historic stories during his curated tour. All of this will be followed by an exquisite wine tasting of whites, rose, and reds accompanied by a wide range of tapas and local delicacies.
Allow us to charm you with the magic of Sintra when visiting the Palacio de Monserrate, Quinta da Regaleira, and Nacional da Pena. Catch a killer sunset at Cabo do Roca, the most westerly point in Europe. We will ensure you miss the congestion normally associated by visiting these beautiful sites by organising privileged access.
For those very special occasions, we will arrange private access to a variety of historic places and hidden gems that are unavailable to the public. All our transportation provides enhanced safety features and vary from spacious Mercedes vehicles to electric Tesla’s and for the ultimate in comfort and safety our chauffeur driven Maybach.
