We loved our stay in the beautiful Villa Vasco da Gama. Located in the quiet old town area of Cascais, but close to the beach and restaurants- it was the perfect Place for us.

harming Villa
Charming renovated villa. Modern bath and good bed. The closet had a safe and drawers. There are stairs up to the building and down to the room. Also, the walk from the train is uphill. Cascais is not a big town so we were close to most attractions especially the museums. The main restaurant area was downhill but there were several bars and restaurants close to the Villa. Our only complaint was that our room looked over the pool area so we had to close the shutters when we dressed and the shower had an annoying shower curtain over the window. We did enjoy the sun and view in the morning. Some of the tile floor looked its age but was clean enough. The breakfast included scrambled eggs and sausage as well as the regular breads, cold cuts, etc.

We stayed in room 4 which is a gorgeous room, lots of natural light & space. The location is good, v easy to walk into the town & to the beach. This is a great hotel but lacks little touches that make it amazing! We stayed for the second year running with the same staff & there was little recognition of this which for a small & boutique hotel was disappointing.
