    We are approximately 4 km from the beach. The next one is called boca do Rio and it takes about 40 minutes to reach it by bike. About 20 minutes by foot it is to the swimming lake. Otherwise possibilities are hiking and enjoying nature.

    About 5 km it is to the next Shopping possibility - intermarché. Normally we go to the market in Lagos (20km) once a week to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, also to Aldi. The nearest market is in vila do bispo (15km), they have a good biological portfolio, we also go there once a week.
