If you want to try something different in Capo Verde you have to go here. The location is on the slopes of the volcano without anything else around. You have to consider that all the rooms are built on the lava of the last eruption...More

Basically, this is a windy construction site that lacks charm and hospitality. It tends to be noisy, with loud music, loud personnel and kids running around throughout the day. The owners do not show much interest in their guests. It is the only suitable base...More

Dear Frans first of all we are very sad and alarmed that you appearently could not enjoy your stay so much. There must have gone something wrong because we have usually very good feedback on exactly the issues you mentioned. Nevertheless we apologize for all...More

Thank you very much Marion! A little "risk" makes you feel more alive - actually it is quite warming and nice to sleep on a fresh lava. Here they say it is "new born land" with unwritten history and very healthy to spend time on...More

This place is unique having been rebuilt after the last eruption in 2014. As you would expect the accommodation is fairly basic but very clean and welcoming.There is an eerie feeling when darkness descends and the view of the volcano slowly disappears. The evening meal...More

Dear Tryfan thank you very much for the positive feedback. We do appreciate. It is our intentionally wanted concept to keep it a simple equipped accommodation. In our opinion it fits this place better - here are private bathrooms, electricity, telephone and even running water...More

About
Description
Casa Marisa 2.0 is constructed over a huge lava stream of the recent volcanic eruption of 2014. during this eruption Casa Marisa was totally destroyed. The reconstruction was finished 10 months after ...More destruction of the original house. It is the only establishment in the Caldeiras with 24/7 electricity (solar) and warm water (solar, geothermic). The floors of the house are still warm from the cooling lava. It is perfectly suited for the start of the most popular excursions and professional information and organisation of all kind of activities are the expertise of the team. The activities range from easy walks up to professional niveau climbing and alpinism. Breakfast service starts from 5:30am! We speak Portuguese, Creole, German, English and French - and we do speak with you. The size of 14 rooms and a huge restaurant still provides a familial atmosphere and gives us time to contact all our clients personally. Cha Das Caldeiras is a remote, simple and very authentic place - and so is Casa Marisa. The luxury of the house is an excellent kitchen and local vine products and a very personal service, not luxury suites. We do give maximum attention to be sustainable. Almost all our food is from the rural products of the Caldeiras and the Islands of Cabo Verde, Marisa and all our team are born and grown up in the Caldeiras and we reuse water, all bottles and our energy is 100% renewable. We are happy to be established again in the Caldeiras and look forward to meeting all the inspiring people from all over the world. Less
