Menu/CuisineSince we have a big farm with our own fruit and vegetables, those will be our main ingredients for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. Everything that can`t be produced by our hens and the farm is bought locally. We prefer short transports and local farms and shops over strictly buying everything organic, since many organic products in Portugal are imported. If you have any intolerances, allergies or dislike some ingredient or food, please let us know during your booking. A special field is provided in our reservation form.
AccommodationsOur rooms can be booked with single or double occupancy and offer a comfy 1,60m bed. Every room has it's own private bathroom with towels provided. Rooms have either garden or sea view.
DirectionsThe nearest airport is Humberto Delgado Airport, Lisbon. We'll pick you up every Sunday around 4 pm and drop you Saturdays around 3 pm free of charge. If those timings don't suit you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you to arrange your transport.
