    How nice that you are interested in Portugal. It is a beautiful country in which we, Margriet and Wiro, love to live. Every day we enjoy the quietness, the friendly people in our village and the simple live. We want to share this with you and give you a warm welcome at our place so that you can also tell us about your choice for Portugal.
    We live in Alentejo since 2004 and every day we love it more and more. In 2006 we bought this land to establish a nice and peaceful place to our guests. It's nice to see people enjoy this authentic region.

    The total size of the lands we control is about 15 ha. On this land we have some old (olive-) trees we want to lop and prune, as well as other gardening works and maintenance on the houses and roads.
    Additional we have a web-shop in the Netherlands in witch we sell Portuguese products so we need also someone who knows how to deal with computers and websites.

  • Accommodation


    When our guest house is not hired, you can use this house. For now this house is certainly hired in December and January and that means that you can sleep in our guest room, with separate bathroom, in our own house.

    What else ...

    We situated in a very quiet part of Portugal. There is hardly no public transport in the neighbourhood. The small village Aldeia do Rouquenho, is about 2 km away and has a nice small café and a bus-stop. There are 4 times the bus to Ferreira do Alentejo stops there. Ferreira do Alentejo is about 10 km away and from there you can get a bus to, for instance, Lisbon.
    You have to realise that we are not a very big tourist company. Only 3 houses for rent guaranty a quit rural environment. No busy restaurant thing just some evenings with home-cooking for guests, if they want to have diner with us. once a week we will fire our stone-oven for pizza-night.
