This place has a certain magical quality. To us, a Portuguese-German family, it feels like a perfect match between the wild Atlantic Ocean and the calm Mediterranean Sea. We’ve been coming back for 20 years and a few years ago we fulfilled our dream of having our own holiday home here. It has everything we need: tranquility, a wide sky, long isolated beaches with magnificent dunes and open-hearted, generous people.
There is something for everyone here: several famous surf spots are only 5 kilometres away, or the Lusitanos if you prefer horse-riding. We have welcomed guests with a wide array of interests, from keen divers to passionate hikers and cyclists. Friends come back to visit all year round and take advantage of the opportunity to relax and have fun. They are all impressed by the energy of this place, which combines the tranquil countryside and the majestic ocean.
We have 3 bedrooms with double beds, one bathroom, a kitchen, a living room with a fireplace and a sofa bed, a garden with a courtyard, internet and all the other daily necessities. The house is also ideal for families with small children, as they can play outside in a safe and enclosed space. Our covered barbecue area is a particular favourite with guests; it has a coal oven which is perfect for cooking homemade pizzas to enjoy in the comfy courtyard.
There is no official address or street name, the whole village (2 little streets) is called Bairro da Colmeia.
Wir sind eine deutsch-portugiesische Familie, Marion ist Fotographin, ich, João, bin Übersetzer und Autor und unsere Kinder - Anna, Dominik und Pedro - gondeln zwischen Deutschland und Portugal.
