We had a really nice time staying at Alquimia; the house is really unusual and very modern in design, with rooms themed to the different elements (earth, fire, water and air). Colour schemes are very attractive and the whole place is very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is really fresh and tasty with the best of Portuguese cheeses, fruit, juice and homemade jams - and the most important ingredient is the wonderful personal service from the always good humoured and friendly Sara, Mario and Susanna. They really want guests to have the best possible experience of Cascais and go way beyond the call of duty to provide it. They give advice about places to visit and will book fabulous and really good value restaurants. We ran into complications trying to book a rental car and Sara resolved it all with great ease. The house is only ten or twelve minutes walk from the centre and is nice and quiet compared to noisy hotels. We would thoroughly recommend it; we chose it on the basis of reviews on this site and were more than delighted with it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located just 10 min walking from the town center, ocean and train station, a charming Guest House is opened in the coastal town of Cascais, Portugal. A traditional Portuguese villa from the 60's has been reconstructed and transformed into a cozy and contemporary home, with 5 suites and a pleasant outdoor leisure space. The desire to travel, to know new places, people and cultures, has always been one of our passions. This has led us to create a cozy and comfortable place that will make you feel at home while you discover and experience the best our region has to offer. From the furniture, which combines traditional and contemporary elements, to the small handcrafted decoration details, with items that have been repurposed, the idea of transformation is present. This philosophy gave rise to "Alchemy". ... more less
