Where to start...For me this was a must visit hotel. Now I finally stayed at Casa do Conto and it did not disappoint at all. Simply amazing, just 6 rooms/suites in all done in the most avant garde style possible. Its history amazing as well, rising a a phoenix from the ashes of the burnt down original hotel. I was going to tell you all the details about the Casa do Conto, but it is really much better just to go with an open mind and discover yourself. Simply amazing...
