Stay Casa Wan


Casa WAN is a quiet and intimate place in nature where travellers stay and artists experiment. Located near the village of Aljezur, Southwest Portugal, the boutique guesthouse is surrounded by ocean and lake vistas.

Direct bookings here or via email.

One of Casa WAN´s main draws is its central yet peaceful location (no direct neighbours). Overlooking exquisite natural beauty and boasting lake and ocean views, the only sounds you´ll hear nearby are those of birdsong, waves, and the gentle rustling of your lush green surrounds.

While you can book the house exclusively for yourself (6 people) most of the time, private double rooms with en-suite bathrooms can be rented during the artist residency. The artist in residence will also live and work on the property and we will hold small gatherings. Guests who stay at Casa WAN directly support the artist residency, which takes place twice a year.

It is personally decorated with vintage furniture, sustainable brands and preloved (design) objects. The bed frames and mattresses are high-quality and handmade from natural materials by COCO-MAT. You will sleep on nature.

The house is furnished with interior from Portugal, or second-hand items and sustainable objects from international sources.

Each room is individually designed and has its own bathroom. The plan kitchen-living room provides a shared space with dining facilities, desk, sofa and fireplace.

In the outdoor area, there are various places to stay and relax.

To the beach (Arrifana and Monte Clerigo) it is a 10 minutes drive.

Exclusively for guests, chef and friend of the house Maria Gonzalez offers culinary experiences. She can be booked as a private chef, shopping assistant and workshophost.

The house has art & design magazines, a themed bookshelf, and postcards for you.

Upon arrival, you´ll receive an exclusive welcome guide filled with personal recommendations on the best natural and cultural experiences in the area.

Exclusive to guests staying at Casa Wan, the Aljezur-based chef, and friend of the house chef Maria Gonzalez can be booked for private dinners.

Upon request, I will design your entire Portugal trip and create an individual program for you. This can be during your stay in my house, but also before and after in other exciting places.
