Wanderlust Wednesday: Cascais, Portugal

Located 40 minutes outside of Lisbon, Cacais is a described as a "postcard-perfect little beach town." Cascais once was a quiet fishing village but after European nobility discovered the little village and it's idyllic setting, the town became a favorite vacation destination. 
Cascais is also a surfing and kitesurfing mecca and there are tons of surf camps located in this town. I'm pretty sure you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful European location to learn to surf in!

I'm pretty sure that if I get to Cascais, the Farol Design Hotel is my first choice. Originally built in 1890,  for a Count, the hotel has obviously gone under a very hip update, but nods to the original building are located throughout the decor. 

The hotel states "Bliss is guaranteed." I'm sure they are 100% correct.
