Casa Vela Guest House
Ranked #1 of 42 Cascais B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We stayed 12 nights at this lovely place. The team was very very helpful and such kindly with our 1 year son, he was like a little prince.
The breakfast is good with eggs or pastais do belem or homemade cake.
The garden with the swimming pool area is relaxing.
We were 5 nights in the Brasil Suite & 7 nights in the Curry Suite, both were perfect & had their own qualities.
We really enjoyed this beautiful B&B and the Cascais area and once again, the Casa Vela team is very friendly & professionnal.

We stayed at Casa Vela while searching for hotels in Cascais area to sleep 1 night out (without children, just the 2 of us).
Unexpectedly I found Casa Vela on a online booking website and immediately enjoyed the photos and the price, after doing a benchmarking of the area. It exceeded expectations by far! The cozy hosting, the wonderful decoration, excellent rooms and a beautiful outdoor swimming pool. The service is one of the best assets of this property exceeding many hotels in Cascais. Don't miss it!

I stayed at Casa Vela during January unexpectedly, and although on my radar for some time, it certainly lived up to the expectations of others whose reviews I read. A particularly welcome reception, showing you to your room, the cozy lounge, the breakfast area. In January the garden, terrace, pool are not of use, but the overall impression is excellent. Due to the guesthouse being in an old house and a new building, every room is different. I stayed in the new building, but the finishes are perfect. The lighting, the beds, the bathroom all are impeccable. If one small comment is allowed, the ability to sit on chairs in the room is pretty limited. Acceptable if on your own, but with more than one it could become somewhat limited. Breakfast is excellent, great coffee, and with its location in a quiet street, it certainly offers the peace and tranquility you expect from such a location. One thing I particularly appreciated was homely lounge, with the honesty bar, and the relaxing music in the background. I will certainly return to this gem on another visit to Cascais.

Nice location, good breakfast, beautiful building and garden. The room was too much "designer" for us, though. No balcony and pretty small windows (we took the largest apartment). No table for dining and very inconvenient and poorly equiped kitchennette.
May be great for a couple looking for a getaway in Cascais but questionable for family with kids

This beautiful guesthouse is unique and enchanting. We stayed for 10 days on honeymoon in October 2012 and the Casa Vela was just perfect - it certainly lived up to many of the reviews on trip advisor.

Stunning boutique style rooms and a lovely guest lounge inside and beautifully manicured gardens and terraces outside - all absolutely pristine. Excellent continental breakfast consisting of a variety of fresh pastries, cheeses, ham etc. served each morning in the dining room.

Joao Paulo the Manager couldn't be more helpful and advised on a couple of excellent local restaurants.

It is just a 5-10 minute walk into town but the hotel is in a lovely quiet residential area - Perfect.

We will definitely be returning.

This guesthouse was perfect for our needs. It is in a residential areas of Cascais so at first glance it appeared a bit boring and out of the way, but the first impression was deceptive.

Once inside we were greeted warmly and taken to our lovely boutique-style room overlooking the expansive, well-kept garden and pool area.

The walk into Cascais was very easy - about 5-10 minutes and you have the choice to promenade towards Estoril or head out of town towards the Boca do Inferno. You also have the easy-to-use train service into Lisbon, about 40 minutes away. This was great for us as we could spend the day out in Lisbon but then return to the smaller, quieter fish restaurants near to the guesthouse to unwind into the evening.

The setting, building and location of this guest house is fantastic! We were in walking distance of Cacais as well as the beautiful coastline walk. Wonderful helpful staff. The breakfast was lovely. Our room had a balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens and pool area. There is also a large communal sitting area. This is a beautiful oasis in Cascais!
