Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel & Spa 

Classic and serene seaside escape

A swish hotel with stylish surrounds and lovely sea views. A great choice for peace and relaxation.

A former Royal residence, this magnificent hotel overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and is close to nine miles of sandy beach in Cascais. In addition to the stylish restaurant extending out onto a sweeping sea-facing terrace, the seawater spa, honey-hued indoor pool and palm-lined outdoor pool bring a fabulous feeling of wellness.
