Fernando is an excellent host. We had everything we needed and he is a wonderful resource for any information regarding travel in Portugal.
My pleasure is make my guests happy, comfortable, and indicate them a maximum of Portuguese nice things during their stay
Friendly and Peaceful
Our stay at this house was very enjoyable! And most comfortable. Loved the feeling of being in the country and still close to the city. The owner's son who lives above the rental unit was so kind and helpful and we loved getting to know him. He even went out of his way to help us when we locked ourselves out of the unit.
We would definitely stay here again. We also fell in love with their dog, Layla.
We have had the most wonderful month in Portugal thanks in large measure to the family that own this holiday residence. They live in the same house and make themselves as available to show you how to use the appliances, help plan great day trips, sit in the evening if you like and talk about their country. We learned so much, saw as much as we could in one month, and we look forward to returning next year. A perfect holiday residence for two people and the hosts are five stars!
I'm glad that you have enjoyed your stay at my house.
