  • Description


    Ola from sunny Portugal!

    My name is Riccardo and I`m an owner of cozy guesthouses based in Portugal near Peniche (one hour from Lisbon).
    Let me tell you a little bit about this place.

    The project is based in small town Consolação.
    Guesthouse has 9 eco style rooms with wooden finishings, where people can totally disconnect from the world and soak up the Portuguese sun. The guest house attracts surfers of all levels, yogis, and chilled guests.
    This place was made with big love and passion and we are really happy to share with our guests and volunteers home atmosphere in there.

    The town Praia da Consolação is an old fishing village with plenty of cafes, fish restaurants, fruit and vegetable shops. Also, we are 5-10 minutes drive or (30 minutes run on the beach ) from Peniche - the more lively part of town.The beach is very close, you can hear and see it from the guest house.

    What else ...

    All basic facilities (little supermarket, pastry shop, cafè, bazar, restaurants) are here around. The beach is just few steps far, so in their free time workawayers can chill out on the beach, surfing, visit the surroundings. There is a bus stop just in front of the guesthouse.

    Fly to Lisbon
    Then short taxi to the bus station Sete Rios located by the zoo or Campo Grande station.
    Take the bus to Peniche

    It is a good idea to download mapsme and save Boanda guest house, the bus will arrive at Peniche but you will get off at the last very stop.

    Then you will be picked up by Riccardo or one of the team .
    Thank you for applying!
