This is a fantastic place to stay as a couple! We feel like home but away. Breakfast was delicious with eggs and bacon, fruits and yoghurt. We recommend this peaceful place right outside the City center.

We stayed here for 1 night and had nothing but positive experience. The place is clean and modernly decorative. The garden was on the hillside and had enough space for a quite hide-away. Hosts were warm and helpful. As a bonus, the breakfast place is opened after breakfast hours and gourmet coffee/juice drink are available most time. It served very...

A perfectly adequate room, picturesque grounds, good breakfast, however, resting on its laurels, lacking in attention to detail. Our sink never drained properly and was never adequately serviced. One dump of smelly chemicals did not do the trick and our request for assistance was never answered. the grounds and pool area, though lovely, needed attention. Wifi was spotty. A few...

We stayed 5 nights recently with a group of 12 people. The guest house is lovely, with beautiful grounds and lovely unheated swimming pool. The location was perfect for exploring Cascais and vicinity. We were a short walk to the market, downtown, and the train where we could easily get to Lisbon. The guest house was spotless - very clean....

We received a super welcome from the proprietor (John Paul) on arrival and all the staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. The hotel is situated 10-15...

Casa Vela is in a quiet suburban street but within ten minutes walk of the main attractions of this very pretty seaside town. It is a very attractive house built in the 1940s with a modern extension. Our room was in the extension and benefitted from a large terrace with garden views. Three sides of the room were glass although...

The guest house is lovely. small and well kept. breakfast is very good. only comment to make is that wifi doesnt work well in the rooms. staff is friendly. well located to walk to the village. beds were comfortable: maybe a choice of feather/non feather pillows would be a nice feature. tissues and toiletries a little skimpy.

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 15 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: 1949, Last renovated in: 2011, Nr. of rooms: 15, Nr. of floors: 2, Property type: B&B, Hotel class: 5 ***** ... more   less
