About julia bocek

I went to school in then Czechoslovakia, to a Hungarian ethnic school, learning both Hungarian and Slovak and Russian starting 4th grade. But I was not to stay there,my 18th birthday was celebrated in Switzerland and my 28th in the United States.I have returned to Europe later,Germany this time and a few years before retirement to the Czech Republic where I now reside. My 2 grown sons live in the USA, where I visit them frequently and they me in Europe.

julia bocek purchased this bungalow in 1995

Why julia bocek chose Portugal

We loved the Island, it is said , I was floating on my back looking up at a perfect sky , when with a sigh I pronounced , that it doesn't get any better.

Why on Santa Maria : we watched a video and said, that we ought to go there and see. We were not disappointed ,we were on the island every summer up until my sons' junior year in college, now they work, have no time and the houses stood unoccupied for the longest time of the year.

What makes this bungalow unique

We actually bought a ruin of a house made of stone and mud, but with a nice view and property. We have decided that it was easier to maintain the old look but rebuild new, and as a result we have now a charming old house with all the comforts of our

times. It is amusing that most locals haven't even noticed that the house has been leveled , then started anew , they are under the impression that the old house is still standing there. We have accomplished what we wanted, the house is at peace with it's surrounding. The first family vacation we have spent in our new house was in 1997, the guest house was added in 2003 and 2004, it was first just a room with half bath it stands with finished interior and exterior since 2007.

Blues Festival, July 2015

Mare do Agosto, August 2015

Both are music lover's events, lots of young people visit the island during that time, the island wakes up from it's slumber.

For the deep see fishing lovers and divers June to October are the best months , the variety of fish is astonishing.
