  • Description


    We are Sanne (36, dutch), Sten (39, danish/american), Leif (4) and Maggie (2).

    We used to come to Portugal in a van. After many summers we decided we wanted to live here. We moved to Holland so Sten could learn a new profession, and he could work from home.

    Three years later we were ready, and the three of us, Leif was 5 months at the time, moved to Portugal permanently. At first we lived in small rental homes. Maggie was born in a small apartment in the Valley behind Aljezur. But finally we convinced the bank to give us a small mortgage.

    We bought an old house that had been empty for 8 year and needed complete remodeling. We have done a lot, but there is still plenty to do!

    Our house is a 5 minute drive from two different beaches. Monte Clerigo and Arrifana. Both amazing for surfing or enjoying the sunshine. You need a car to get to the beaches and main town of Aljezur, but we would be happy to drive you where you need to go. You can walk to the local supermarket, local bar and restaurants.

    Sten works from home as web engineer and Sanne is Full time mum. The kids go to school 3 days a week.
