Casa Amarela Guesthouse in Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal
The Casa Amarela Guesthouse is located in the beautiful village of Vila Nova de Milfontes, which is right on the Costa Azul of Portugal. I stayed here for a month in a room in the back. I needed to do some writing and this hostel proved to be a great place for working.
Vila Nova de Milfontes is a truly beautiful place to stay for a while. It sits right where the River Mira meets the Atlantic Ocean. Miles of beaches. Rui, the owner, is also a really wonderful man, and he built the guesthouse with his own two hands. He is a dreamer who has traveled around the world himself, and therefore knows what travelers want in a hostel.
- 15 Euro- Dorm
- 25-35 Euro- Single room
- 35-55 Euro- Double room
- 50- 70 Euro- Triple room
Rui, the owner, is an extremely nice guy and is willing to be a little flexible with these prices if you really cannot afford it (I couldn’t).

Casa Amarela Website
A description of the Casa Amarela Guesthouse from their website:
“Less than 200 Km to the South of Lisbon, at the plain between the mountains, the sea and the mouth of Mira River, Vila Nova de Milfontes had become the main holidays destination at the South-West coast to Portuguese or other visitors from all over the world and surely one of the most appetizing of all the Portuguese coast. Rarely the Nature was so generous at this frontier between the Earth, the river valley and the Sea creating countless very beautiful beaches of fine sand and crystal waters.
Is at this paradise place that Rui, a traveller that have been travelling around 60 different countries around the world, therefore knowing better the needs of those ones travelling, offers lodgement , at the town centre but in a deep courtyard than extremely quite, in rooms of 2, 3 ,4 and 6 people or special rooms for youth at a cosmopolite, easy going and friendly atmosphere that calls for travelling. All rooms come with private bathroom, T.V., hairdryer. We also have common different kitchens for exclusive use of our guests. Free Internet.”
This is one of the common areas where travelers are able to use the internet and watch international TV and movies.
The Casa Amarela Guesthouse is full of paintings that Rui brought back from his travels.
