Chess in Lisbon, Portugal

If anyone's heading out to Lisbon to play chess, or knows the details of any strong tournaments over there, please let me know. A friend of mine has a great apartment available to rent in the Estoril district of the city.

One of the challenges in playing a long tournament is finding good accommodation: hotels are fine for weekend events, but can be claustrophic and wallet draining for a week long event. With the need to access online games databases, and of course to blog!, a broadband connection is also pretty much essential.

Maybe we should set up a chain of 'chess friendly rentals' around the globe. Any recommendations for great tournaments & accommodation welcome.

A board and a laptop next to a window with a view like that would be awesome.

that kind of view could only be achieved in an aeroplane - not ideal as a base for a tournament!
