    Description

    We are a relaxed small farm in a very lucky location, with breath taking views to the country side, with a guest house, located on the beautiful, sunny, warm historic Lagos and region. Our small farm is located in Odiáxere country side area, near the Meia Praia beach, that has around 5 kilometres of sand and a beautiful lagoon loved for those who enjoy kite-surfing.

    This project started only a couple of years ago and we are still in the process of improving to give to our guests a better holiday experience.

    It's an amazing place, quiet, with millions of stars at night, for people who like to work and live outside, who like to do country walks, to be with dogs and other small farm animals, and likes to explore by bicycle the environment or enjoy the sun in our garden or simply relax and surf the web with our Free Wi-Fi. We have two bicycles that we can provide. Our small farm is located just around 15 minutes by bike from the Beach and 2 minutes from a Bar and Restaurants.
