Casa Onrust means 'House of Peace' in Afrikaans. The setting and location live up to the name. Vale Telheiro was recently described as the 'Tuscany' of Portugal. The Villa has an attractive shaded terrace and the pool is surrounded by lawns and palm trees and seating areas. The owner lives in the main house with her friendly labradors Paula and Oscar who adore children. Uschi goes out of her way to ensure that a holiday at Onrust will be a tranquil experience. She's an artist and her flair is reflected throughout the whole place. Beautiful paintings adorn the walls and wonderful fabrics are used for curtains and soft furnishings. If you want to pamper yourself while on holiday, there is a beauty treatment/therapy room tucked away in the garden and the owner can provide aromatherapy, colour consulting and hairdressing. Alternatively you can just relax by the lovely pool and walk through surrounding countryside. Enjoy the calming atmosphere of this most delightful place.
