This was an instance in which I wish we had a week to stay in this delightful house. I would have loved more time to enjoy all this special house has to offer. Cozy community areas with music and books, a gorgeous garden and swimming pool - our room was efficient and interesting - contemporary, yet homey. I loved this...

My third stay at Casa Vela, this time for four nights, and it was just as good as ever! The rooms are beautiful - modern, well designed and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is delicious. And the staff are really friendly and accommodating. I recommend it highly and would go back in a heartbeat. It's just a wonderful place to stay.

Spent a week at this hotel, the first week of May 2017. We had the room called Curry. Room is spaceous and has everything you need. It bothered us slightly though, that the toilet door is only frosted glass, so no privacy. First I was disappointed that our balcony didn't have the view of the utterly beautiful garden, but soon...

We spent only one night and the impression since our arrival was of a very nice place. We enjoyed our staying and we appreciated the warm hospitality. Quite place very close to the heart of the town . I would definitely suggest it.

We had a fabulous room with terrace overlooking the pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was a little disappointing but overall a lovely stay. Cascais is a magic place to visit and the beaches are great.

We had the most wonderful short stay at Casa Vela (lucky & unexpected as Cascais was fully booked up!). The grounds/pools are beautiful and empty – it’s such a blessing to lounge under mature trees in the hot weather. The service is super attentive & professional in fluent English and with exceptional Portuguese hospitality! Breakfast spread was nice and we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Vela Charm GuestHouse: An oasis of tranquility, set right in middle of the old historic quarter of Cascais…Casa Vela offers you a discrete, sophisticated and unique ambiance. It’s embraced by a real oasis of greenery. The 3.500 square meters of perfectly manicured gardens, waterfalls and lakes, provide an environment of harmony and relaxation. All of the 18 rooms and suites are named after a common theme – The XVI Century Portuguese Discoveries and the Spices brought by the Portuguese sailors from the far East. The names range from Timor, Goa, Mozambique, Macau to Cinnamon, Pepper and Curry. They are all individually styled and decorated with more than a dash of simplicity and grace, inviting you to a homely feel. Centrally located though in a tranquil and calm residential quarter, you’ll find at a walking distance Cascais’s main attractions such as Museums, Marina and Public Gardens. And not to forget that Lisbon is only twenty kilometers away…Built Year: 1947, Last renovated in: 2011, Nr. of rooms: 18, Nr. of floors: 2, Property type: B&B, Hotel class: Guest House ... more   less
