“Casa Grande & Sally makes me wanna come back to Portugal again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I really love this hotel and want to go back with my 6 year old daughter.
Unique rooms in beautifull colours( I loved the Pink one for girls )
Charming intimate atmosphere. Beautifull high ceilings. Something really different!
Very good breakfast, lunch,picknick homemade by lovely lady Sally who's always friendly and there for you. The beautifull dracaena draco tree in front of the house. The quiet road and so close to the beach. Lovely restaurants in the neighboorhood.

Really makes me feel welcome and you end up in a colourfull guesthouse with an open and friendly rustique atmosphere

Room Tip: Every room is beautifull. Choose a colour which makes you feel good!

We had planned to only stay for a night and then move on, but ended up spendig the rest of our vacation there. We instantly fell in love with the old romantic house, its spacious rooms (each one of them painted and decorated in a different colour) and of course the owner, Sally. She is the most wonderful person, will help you with anything, is fun and interesting to talk to, knows the area and the people. Thank you so much Sally! The location is great, everything is walking-distance, hiking from Burgau is fantastic.

If you like bland, predictable, corporate hotels, then Casa Grande isn't the place for you. If you like warm hospitality, a unique and quirky atmosphere and a lovely location, then you'll love Casa Grande. Sally is a great hostess and we enjoyed sharing breakfast with her each morning and chatting over our plans for the day. Each of the bedrooms are differently decorated and furnished and have all the facilities you might need to ensure your comfort. But if you are looking for a tv and phone in your room, you wont find it. Casa Grande is not a luxury hotel, it is an interesting and engaging place to stay and will remain in your memory far longer than a visit to a 'name brand' hotel. Thanks Sally.

I first came to casa grande in 2006 and fell in love with the place. i returned twice since then and plan to go back again soon. Very interesting and unique building. not your average guesthouse. the owner sally was very nice and tells great storys. the restaurant is fantastic. it is an old adega where they used to make wine in the olden days now converted to a beautiful little eatery with delicious food. i recommend the beef and cream, chicken and local sausage, the sole and the lightly seared tuna with sesame, but you cant go wrong with any of sallys dishes... yum yum
there are various room options for different budgets and also a beautiful cottage out back for family or larger groups. burgau is a beautiful little fishing village west of lagos. its nice and quite there with many amazing beaches nearby and some beautiful cliff top walks also.

Room Tip: if you have a big group or can afford it. go for the cottage out back

one of the most exciting holidays we ever had: stayed 4 weeks at Casa Grande! We met so many great people, musicians, had sessions and party all the time! And our host- lovely sally- was always having new plans. From fado night to rockn roll fever- she knows whats going on. We visited all the wonderful different beaches in and next to Burgau- the small cosy ones and the large ones whith huge waves- perfekt for surfing. Love and laughter is the spirit of Casa Grande- a beautiful old house, with rooms in different colours. A perfekt place for all people beeing open minded, creative and young at heart! We hope the house- and its owner- still reminds us well- as we do!! Andy and Conny

Visited this beautiful old grand mansion with my girlfriend in September 2012. It was great, in spite of the rain falling the whole 3 days we spend there. Sally is a warm, friendly and joyful person.

She was having her birthday and we even got invited to her birthday party and met a lot of her friends and family! We really had a wonderful time here!!

Thank you Sally and take care of yourself and your war family who welcomed us with open arms!!

Room Tip: Be aware that there are no locks on the door. We had the room on the ground floor, but we felt very...

Visited on a Sunday evening in November, quite a few customers in and service prompt and efficient. Starters nice but pizzas ok and no more, glad we went and tried it out but probably use one of the other pizza resturants in the village next time
