Carcavelos or Cascais

My husband and I are visiting this area for the first time and would like some information on the two towns. We have found an ideal apartment in each destination but cannot make our minds up which area will suit us best. We enjoy eating out and experiencing local life. We do not need nightclubs or discos!

They are very different Cascais is more cosmopolitan. Cascais is both a town with residents and tourists, and in some areas very close to the beach. Carcavelos it's basically residents, I doubt that you'll find a lot of restaurants in town with english menu, the beach it's on walking distance (5-10min), maybethere the restaurants and bars will have english menu.
