Casa Da Praia is a Bed & Breakfast not a Hotel so therefore we do not have a reception desk or full time staff but it does mean that you are welcome to bring in outside food and drink. We offer rates that are considerably cheaper then a similar standard Hotel but, of course, we do not offer the same level of service.

We only have 7 units at Casa Da Praia with all of them designed to have a view of the garden and pool. We will always give a choice of ground or 1st floor unless there is no option available.

In some rooms I have used Indian slate on the floor and all rooms have antique furniture to create a rustic look that some guests do not appreciate so I recommend that you study the photos on this website to confirm suitability.

We are a family and couples orientated establishment so we do not accept groups.
