- Like much of chic Cascais, this private villa was built in the 19th century as a summer escape by an aristocrat seeking the ocean breeze. It stands on the water’s edge, its bright white walls housing a dazzling array of bespoke rooms created by Portuguese and international fashion designers.
- Despite Cascais having evolved from a small fishing village to a somewhat overbuilt town, the Farol Hotel still has the best spot, right on the edge of the ocean facing out across the blue water, its back to the concrete modern world. It is walking distance from the elegant centre of old Cascais and a 20-minute drive will take you into Lisbon or up into the hills to visit the palaces of Sintra. Lisbon airport is a 40-minute drive away.
- The 33 rooms and suites include eight bespoke rooms created by well known Portuguese and international fashion designers, each of whom has translated their vision into interior design.
- There are two excellent dining options: The Mix serves Mediterranean dishes, from fish soup with sautéed shrimps and coriander to ginger-infused risotto with sautéed lobster. At Sushi Design, on a terrace overlooking the Atlantic, expect gyosas and ceviche, niguiri and hosomaki, sushi and sahsimi, mouth-wateringly fresh courtesy of sushi master, Nuande Pekel.
- There is a saltwater swimming pool between the hotel and the sea, water sport facilities nearby and hotel-organised dolphin cruises.
