Casa Velha is a great place to spend your holiday in Boa Vista. We were in the penthouse apartment, which has a great roof terrace with sea-view. The accommodation is clean, well designed and the manager (Michela) organized trips and gave tips for good restaurants. All staff is very friendly, though some hardly speak English. Breakfast consists of dairy and... More

Casa Velha is a stunning place. Everything is at its right place. The best part: the beautiful peaceful interior patio, perfect to read a book, drink a coffee and hang out with birds. The beach and surf clubs are just a short walk away and the staff is friendly and they make the best butter cookies. I would definitely recommend... More

Casa Velha was a really good place to be. Simple but clean accommodation with friendly staff. The appartment was equiped quite well, we missed only the detergencies and towels for the dish washing. The Casa Velha is only some hundred meters from Sal Rai with some nice restaurants and only hundred meters from a nice beach. Only drawback is the... More

What's not to love about this place, this island and it's beautiful people? We've been to Boa Vista 4 times now, in 2 years, just returned. Casa Velha, located a stone's throw from the stunning Estoril and Chaves Beaches with their smattering of laid back beach bars and cool surfer dudes, is always our first choice in Boa Vista. We...

Downstairs apartment a little dark and lacking utensils but the hospitality and location were stunning. Staff are so friendly and nothing is any trouble at all. Walk to town centre is 8 mins and many fab restaurants and supermarkets

Friendly staff and very nice accomodation. This appartement is perfect if you're visiting Boa Vista with some friends or as a couple. Casa Velha is also close to the main street so shops, restaurants and taxis are always close by.

I went in Boa Vista to have one week of windsurfing and we enjoy to rest in Casa Velha after our days. The place is very calm and charming. You have space inside rooms. Our bathroom was a bit humid. We enjoy breakfasts and happy hours as much as for the quality of the fresh products than for the resort... More
