We had started are travels in Lisbon and after 4 days of covering the whole of Lisbon/ Sintra, we had booked casa vela for a relaxing 2 days, before continuing our travels. We were not disappointed, what a great place to stay. It was our anniversary on the day of arrival, and my girlfriend had emailed to see if they could do anything. On arrival the owner gave us a tour of the grounds and a bit of history of the villa. When we arrived back to our room, they had laid on a lovely bottle of sparkling wine, with cake and fresh fruit. So we sat on the ample balcony in the sun and chilled out with our wine. The rooms are all based on spices, our room was saffron, beautiful modern room, with a great balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. All the staff are fantastic and very helpful. Breakfast is superb, meats, cheese, pastries, scrambled egg and very fresh orange, with a great coffee machine. ate breakfast every morning in the sun overlooking the gardens. Location is great, very quiet street, 5 mins walk into centre, couldn't fault any part of our stay. Would highly recommend.
