****Please read well before booking!
***Not recommended for people with bad allergy or that don't like dogs or cats!
***Bookings for November to April: you need to book at least 24 hours in advance as I will need to air out the room and give it a good clean, please remember we do not have heating, and you have to go outside to get to the bathroom and shower.
Converted garage, plenty of space!
The house is inside our garden fence, but separate from the main house there is space to park your car outside.
Inside the house has a double bed, a single bed at the back. One corner is a sitting area with and a small coffee table, sofa bed and chair, the other corner is the kitchen area, it has a sink, oven and a small fridge and a shelf with a few basic kitchen utensils, plates and cutlery ( sorry, no coffee machine or microwave yet!). All the furniture is well used, so don't expect a new apartment! There is an outside toilet and shower (the toilet and shower are private but separate from the guest house, 5m away). Outside on the small private patio there is a dining table and chairs and you can also borrow our small portable grill. If you have kids they are welcome to use our garden, and play with the kids outside toys.
Our water comes from a bore-hole and is perfectly fine for washing and showers but has a high mineral content and is not recommended for drinking or cooking, so I recommend you bring your own bottled water. It also leaves a brown stain in the shower and sink that can easily be mistaken for dirt, but is impossible to wash of!
Kids and pets are always welcome, but please no smoking indoors.
The house is listed as suitable for people with restricted mobility, we have had guests in wheel chairs before but it's not completely wheelchair friendly, there is a ramp leading up to the room, but some might find it a bit to steep, and the bathroom and shower both have a step and no rail.
We have cats and dogs that are not encouraged to go in the rooms, but will often try to, the dogs bark at strangers but are very friendly once they have been introduced to you. Our chickens and birds sing at all times, so if you are a light sleeper the maybe this is not the place for you. There are sparrow nests between the roof tiles so expect to hear them early in the morning. There is often a gecko in the room and don't be surprised if you find a frog in the shower!
We are on the main road, but 10km south of the nearest town (Aljezur) and 20km north of Lagos. There are loads of lovely beaches in the area, but you need to have a car if you want to get to them as public transport is almost non existent.
There's a bus stop close to our house, but very few buses come by.
Nearby beaches include: Arrifana, Amado, Carrapateira, Vale de Figuiras, Amoreira.
Horse riding and carriage driving can be arranged at discount prices.
Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
