Located on the Portuguese Riviera, the town of Estoril is a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located just 20 minutes west of Lisbon, it is easily accessed by car, or you can also take the train if you want to avoid the traffic.
Estoril is a fashionable seaside town that is home to Europe’s largest casino and some of its finest golf courses. In the 1930’s it was a popular destination for European royalty and aristocrats, and a chosen place of exile for a number of deposed European monarchs (including King Juan Carlos of Spain). Today visitors come to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches, play tennis or golf, enjoy Estoril Park, and to try their luck at the Casino Estoril, which was the inspiration for Ian Fleming’s James Bond and Casino Royale.
