We are about 20 minutes away. There is so much to see in the area you will be kept busy. CANOEMAN´s thought of the CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL is good one however it is only on this month at weekends. BUDDA gardens is not very far from you and really worth a visit as is the medival town of OBIDOS. the SALT MINES near RIO MAIOR.

Hi Saw!

I know Torres Vedras and a bit from the surrounding area.
Concerning furniture I would recomend you to came to Lisbon and have a look in IKEA. As far as I know local stores are usually more expensive than big stores like Ikea.
Also in Torres Vedras if you don't want to spend much money in furniture have a look in "Moviflor" store - is an affordable store.

I would recomend you to make the west coast until Cascais and then until Lisbon, There are many nice places and views in - Ericeira, Guincho, Boca do Inferno, Sintra (very nice village) Belem, etc...

All the best!
