Lisbon to Cascais

Hotel Roma is situated near the Entrecampos Train/Metro Station

From there you can get a Metro in Direction Rato, change to one Direction Stª. Apolonia and at Metro Station Baixa Chiado change for one for Rail Station Cais de Sodre.

Alternatively, you could walk to Areeiro Metro Station and get a train direct to Rail Station Cais de Sodre.

From Cais de Sodre there are frequent trains depending on the time of day/week to Cascais.

Cascais is not only about sandy shores but the train trip itself is worth it to see the Tagus estuary, the tower of Belem, Jeronimos Monastery and other sites of the greater Lisbon area.

Trip takes about 40 minutes each way.

travel tips from lisbon to lagos

Most local car hire companies do deals for 3 or 7 day hires and you may find it not much more expensive to hire the car for seven days than for two one-day hires.

Also bear in mind that having a car will enable you to explore the West Coast beaches north from Sagres if you want to.

Downtown Lagos is small so if you intend to stay in one of the hostels and just enjoy backpacker life a car will not necessarily be a necessity.

If that is the case you may find it cheaper to take the train or bus from Lisbon to Lagos and back.

By the time you pay for the car, fuel and toll Motorways (if you come the most direct route) it may well outweigh the cost of a taxi from Lisbon Airport to Gare Oriente and a train to Lagos for the four of you..

There again taxis are often hard to come by at Lagos Train and Bus Station although they have been improving recently.

TAP - Air Portugal

TAP - Air Portugal is the national airline of Portugal and has been operating for 50 years. They have a good safety record.

There can be problems occasionally on the Lisbon - Faro sector if incoming flights are delayed. You may find yourself "bumped" to a later flight.

Aer Lingus is the national airline of Ireland and again has been operating for nearly 50 years. Good Record as well.

Rental car offices at the train station at Lagos

No, there are no car hire offices at the train station at Lagos. There are several about 500m away over the footbridge on the main avenida.

However, I am sure that if you advise your car hire company as to your time of arrival or arrange to call them on your mobile when you are on final approach...e.g. after leaving Portimão Station, they will send someone to meet you.

As you are from the other side of the pond, remember that most vehicles here are manual shift. Remember to ask for an automatic if necessary although you will pay a premium for it.

New Route - London Gatwick - Faro - BA reported yesterday that BA are to launch a route London Gatwick - Faro shortly. One presumes this is on the heels of the takeover of GB Airways by Easyjet.

Service sleighted to start 30th March 2008 but nothing on BA site yet that I can find.

São Martinho do Porto to Carvoeiro, Algarve

The main problem with this route is that there is no easy long distance train or coach service that serves Carvoeiro. There is a local bus service that runs via Lagoa several times a day.

To drive would take:

Time: 03h41 including 03h16 on motorways
Distance: 372km including 354km on motorways

according to viamichelin.

Rail would be your best public transport option as it would be more comfortable.

Take a train to Portimão and then a taxi to Carvoeiro.

Schedule as follows:

12h52 São Martinho Do Porto
13h06 Caldas Da Rainha
13h39 Caldas Da Rainha
15h31 Mira Sintra-melecas
15h49 Mira Sintra-melecas
16h18 Lisboa - Entrecampos
17h30 Lisboa - Entrecampos
20h44 Tunes
20h58 Tunes
21h32 Portimão

Travel time: 8h40mins.

Taxi to Carvoeiro would take about 20 minutes at that time of night.

Lagos - New Urban Bus Service

Further to my previous post, I have now obtained further details of the service courtesy of the website of the Camara Municipal de Lagos and the nascent web-site of the ONDA bus service.

Portuguese versions here:

Camara Municipal de Lagos

Onda - Timetables - PDF download

I have also translated a large part of this info which is available at the bottom of this article in three png images.

The interesting thing about these new services, resutling from a €1mn investment in new buses is that Lagos, Praia da Luz, Barão São João and Bensafrim will now have regular services at good frequencies between them even on Sundays from early in the morning till around 20:00.

It still means that is you want to go to Lagos from Praia de Luz for a night out you will have to take car but for those who only need day services it is going to be a great improvement.

Lagos Zoo will also now benefit from several services a day.

Just click one them and they will enlarge.

Algarve - 12 day itinerary.

The first thing to remember is that the Algarve is a relatively small area measuring approximately 160 km long by 40 km wide.

You best bet therefore would be to base yourselves at say two or three places for 3 to four days each and then explore out from there.

If you want to avoid high rises keep well clear of Albufeira, which is the centre of mass tourism in the Algarve.

I would recommend something along the following lines:

Day 1 - 4 Head for Tavira and base yourselves there for 3 to 4 days. From there you can visit Castro Marim, Ayamonte, (just over the border in Spain), Vila Real Stª. Antonio.

On Day 4 - 5 Take the route up the left bank of the Guadiana River (Portugal/Spanish Borded) and visit Alcoutim and Mertola, and head for the old Roman town of Serpa. Be warned that this route can be very hot in late June, July and August.

See this article on my blog which may be of use:

Day 5 -6 - Drive Serpa/Beja/Odemira. Have a look at the old centre of Beja and the agricultural town of Odemira. From there continue the 100km to Sagres.

In the area of Sagres, I can recommend the following places:


Guest House Albergaria dos Mareantes
or call Maria de Jesus on 00 351 918441745

Between Praia de Luz and Burgau (20 minutes from Sagres)

Guest House - Aurora-Sol
Sra. Lucilia Matos

Day 7-9 from Sagres/Burgau Visit the spectacular west coast of the Algarve with its hidden coves and spectacular cliffs. Drive to the delighful inland town of Monchique nestled on the top of the small mountain by the same name. Visit the Spa 5kms from the town at Caldas de Monchique.

Day 10-12 - Stay in Lagos 30 km from Sagres. This is one of the oldest towns in the Algarve and was the departure point for many of the Portuguese Voyages of Discovery which opened the route around the Cape. It still retains its Portuguese character. During this time also visit Silves, 30km distant with its old Moorish City walls.

Back to Faro Airport 1 hours drive.

Please note that this is just a suggestion and can be played around with. However, it will keep you away from the mass tourism.

As regards a hire car, I recommend Luzcar who have offices in Lagos and a base at Faro Airport. Their prices may not be the cheapest at first glance but are all-inclusive. Their vehicles are of high standard and can be taken into Spain. I have know them and used them for 10 years.

Have a good trip

Hope this helps.

White/Electrical Goods Shops - Lagos and Algarve

For white/electrical goods don't forget the branches of Worten at the Modelo centre in Portimão and Algarve Shopping in Guia.

If you are into IKEA, why not make a short trip to Seville and visit the IKEA there. Its on the Southern Approach to Seville (Algarve-Huelva-Seville motoway) and easily acessible. About 2 hours drive from Lagos.

Details here.

Also in Huelva, 160 km from Lagos along the motorway you have El Corte Ingles which is a department store found throughout Spain and a sort of John Lewis/Waitrose/Comet on steroids!.

You can spend a morning (or at least the other half can!) Remember to ask them about their insurance policies for bigger items. We bought a laptop there 18 months ago and got an excellent insurance deal on the unit.

Head for Huelva - Centro Comercial Costa Luz.

Hope this helps.

Driving from Setubal to the Algarve

You are looking at at least 2 hours by toll motorway.

If you take the scenic coastal route via Troia, Vila Nova Milfontes, Aljezur, Lagos allow 2 hrs. 30 mins depending on time of year.

In Lisbon there are great things for kids such as the massive walk through Aquarium at Parque de Nações, the Zoo at Sete Rios, Tram Rides, the train ride along the Coast to Cascais, Toys R Us in the Colombo Centre, the kiddies park with rides etc. also in Colombo Centre.

All accessible by Fertagus train and Metro from Setubal station over the 25 Abril bridge and into Lisbon.

Irish Airports to Faro & Lisbon Summer 2008

Realistically, as mentioned by others, Faro and Lisbon are the only feasible airports for the Algarve.

From Ireland I think you are restricted to:


Dublin to Faro

Shannon to Faro

Aer Lingus

Belfast to Faro

Cork to Faro

Dublin to Faro

Dublin to Lisbon

Waterford to Faro

Galway to Faro

Belfast to Faro

That's all the current scheduled services I can find announced so far for this summer. There are always the possibility of charters etc

Transfers from Lisbon airport to Cascais

I agree with cubsur's comments.

There used to be a bus operated by Scotturb but this was suspended last year owing to poor traffic loads.

With all your luggage, kids etc you really do not want to be struggling to get a bus to Cais de Sodre, buy tickets and then from Cascais station to your destination. Although it will work and I would probably use it if I was on my own, (the train trip has great views ), with the logistics I would recommend one of the following three options:

1) Taxi - Lisbon - Airport to Cascais

To arrange a taxi, check with the Tourism Desk in the Arrivals Hall at the airport when you arrive. I would think you would be looking at +-€ 60, although prices rise at night and week-ends and baggage is extra.

2) Private Transfer

Low Cost Transfers are currently quoting € 56 for a March transfer Lisbon Airport to Cascais.


3) Hire Car

Some rental operators in Lisbon have daily car hire offers. Unfortunately, I can remember who, as it a year or so I saw the adverts when up in Lisbon. I don't normally recommend hiring cars if it is one's first visit to Lisbon/Cascais but it may be an option for you.

Ryanair - Reduced Frequency - Porto - Milano/Bergamo

Just reported on Portuguese blog, Ryanair will reduce frequency on this route to three times a week as from 6th May. 2008.

Shades of Faro-Madrid??

London to Lagos, Algarve. Portugal

Lagos is situated in the South-Western part of the Algarve region of Portugal about 275 km from Lisbon Airport and 80 km from Faro Airport.

It does not have its own airport.

From London, most visitors fly in via Faro Airport. However, public transport from Faro Airport to Lagos is not easy.

You would have to get a local bus or taxi from Faro Airport to Faro Centre and then a bus or train from Faro to Lagos. Altenatively, you could arrange transport with one of the private shuttle services than operate from the airport

For flights from London Airports(Stansted, Gatwick, Luton) to Faro see:

Thomson's Fly

From Lisbon you would need to get a train or bus to Lagos:

By train you would take a taxi five minutes to Gare Oriente where there is a bus and rail station. From there you can get either train (change at Tunes juction) or RENEX bus to Lagos.

For flights from London Airports(Stansted, Gatwick, Luton) to Faro see:

British Airways

You can find links to directly download train and bus for Lisbon - Lagos and Faro - Lagos (train) timetables in pdf format in the "Algarve & Portugal - Travel Transport Links Panel" on the right hand side of my blog at

Also see Cubsur's for information on Algarve bus services.

Travel from the Algarve to Lisbon

I'm not sure where you got the idea that the train times are slow. There are several departures per day taking between 2,45 and 3, 25 hrs. Not bad for a 270 km trip that includes climbing through the escarpment out of the Algarve. Remember for downtown Lisbon you want to get of at Entrecampos Station and not Gare Oriente. This knocks 10 minutes of the trip.

I strongly recommend using public transport to visit Lisbon for the first time.

Currently, the local council in Lisbon is putting in place traffic calming measures in the centre of the city that is making it increasingly awkward to drive there unless you know where you are going. I have known Lisbon for 40 years and with the latest changes to the traffic system downtown even I had 'fun' recently when I was up there.

The motorway up to Lisbon is a toll road. For the price of a hire car, toll and fuel you could could get 6 return train tickets. It will take you you about 2.45 hours to drive to the Ponte 25 Abril bridge over the Tagus at the entrance to Lisbon.

Thirdly, by taking the train you will get to see a bit more of Portugal.

Lisbon has an excellent public transport system.

If you do take a car, try and get a hotel in the area of Avda. Jose Malhoa, which is just off the 1st Circular (which runs from the Ponte 25 Abril bridge) and near to Praça de Espanha and Sete Rios Metro Stations.

If you can get to Algarve Shopping in Guia, you can go both to:




They both stock hard drives.

Finally, if you really in the East of the Algarve, you could nip over to Ayamonte and see who are in old downtown Ayamonte.

They have been in business for several years.

One note:

Be clear what type of hard drive you need - IDE or SATA. The latter is the new standard and will not connect to older motherboards without an additional pci card.

Sintra - Seville

Sintra is just outside Lisbon and there is a good suburban train service between Sintra and the recently reopened Rossio Station in downtown Lisbon,

As regards Lisbon - Seville, this is a bit problematical. There are no direct train links.

TAP - Air Portugal currently have a daily one hour flight - Lisbon to Seville. Return prices this week are in the order of € 220 including taxes. Note One way tickets for this period are € 309! It may be cheaper to buy a return ticket rather than a one way and not use the return sector.

You would have to take the train from Sintra to Cacem, change to a train for Gare Oriente and then take a taxi five minutes to the Airport.

The alternative is long distance coach.

There is a twice daily service operated by from Lisbon Sete Rios Coach Station to Seville Plaza das Armas.

If you go to my blog at

you will find a copy of this reply together with a png image of the current timetable for the service. Click on it to view and download.

You would have to take the train from Sintra to Cacem, change to a train for Sete Rios go the ground floor and walk over to the Bus Station.

Hope this helps.

Algarve - Thoughts on property prices vis a vis the Spanish Market

It is certainly possible that the Spanish property market turbulence
will hit the Algarve.

The question is how!

a) Will punters looking to buy on the Iberian Peninsula prefer to buy
in Portugal, as the same uncertainty on illegal construction currently
dominating the Spanish market, does not apply? If so it may have a
small upwards effect on Algarve Property Prices.


b) Will the surplus property portfolio in Spain result in a
substantial discounting in prices there. This could then result in a
rush to buy in Spain and decrease interest in the Algarve/Portugal
with a resultant small downwards effect on Algarve Property Prices.

It also necessary to factor in two other factors:

c) The current US recession and downwards trends in major world
economies. Credit lenders are going to tighten credit substantially in
my opinion, thus reducing the number of buyers around. This should
have a further downwards effect on world and Algarve Property Prices.

d) The Algarve itself - The Algarve is a strange economic animal where
often normal economic rules do not apply. A lot of money is invested
here but never gets spent here and just disappears...with the
resultant low wages, pressure on small business etc.

Secondly, developers here seem to have deep pockets and are prepared
historically and at present to sit on empty new builds for years
rather than sell at reduced price. The same is true of the
"second-hand" market. Local Portuguese and long time expats appear to
be prepared to sit on empty propertys for years rather than sell at
reduced price.

Overall, I think the next 2 - 3 years will see downwards pressures on
property prices particularly at the lower end of the market.

Prices will only see substantial increases if the World Economy turns round
quickly or if there is a major exodus of expats from Spain to

Finally, don't forget that it is not only the Spanish Expat market
that has an impact on the Algarve Property Market.

The Croatian, Bulgarian, French, Greek Islands, Cyprus, Canaries, Cape
Verde and Florida Markets also all have an influence.

In the long/medium term, Algarve property prices should recover and
maintain their value because of the Algarve's ease of access to key
markets viz U.K., Ireland, Germany, and the Benelux. However, also
bear in mind that property values here may never accurately reflect
final resale price because one may be required to drop a price 10%-15%
for a quick sale.

Seville to Coimbra


The fastest, most direct and best way will be an overnight bus operated by

Dept: SEVILLA - 19/04/2008 - 23:59
Arr: COIMBRA - 20/04/2008 - 09:30

Price: € 50.00

There is then a train leaving from Coimbra Parque Station at 10:19 arriving Miranda do Corvo at 10:54.

There are no direct train services or low cost flights between Seville and Lisbon or Porto. The above solution is about the only direct effective service.

If you go to my blog at:

You will find a copy of this answer.

Below you will find a png file with the timetable for the route Seville - Coimbra. If you click it you should be able to view it.
