Description:
We live in an old peasant's house which used to have a wine making cellar where we now have our library/office. The house has remained the same on the outside but we have changed the inside . In the garden we have a barbecue area plus a 5x10M pool, a laundry room and barbecue "common room", plus a small WC and an outdoor shower. To let/guest apartments: in the garden we have two one bedroom fully equipped bungalows (twin side-by-side equal buildings) which we rent or use for visitors (non-simultaneous home exchangers or friends). Each bungalow has a bedroom with twin beds, a WC/shower, a living area with a couch, dining table, fridge/freezer, micro-wave and two hot plates to cook, etc. we provide clean bath, kitchen and bedroom linen and for longer stays (over 10 days) we might be able to organize a cleaning-lady for you for Euros-35 plus change of linens. We can drive you to and from Oporto or Vigo (Spain) airports for a petrol fee of Euro_60.
And by arrangement and no extra fee we can drive you around here for short sightseeing or shopping trips!
We usually give our guests a key for our winter room in the main house so they can can use their own laptop with wi-fi connection. We have pets (2 cats one too old to move out of her corner) but if you do not like pets we will get someone to take care of them should we be away during your stay. We have had guests who are allergic to cats and yet there was NO problem as the garden is large and they roam the neighborhood freely and can easily be kept at bay if need be!
We are serious about you but informal,flexible, friendly, and welcome all honest suggestions or negotiations.

  • First of all i would like to mention Paulas great hospitality and humor. It was really a great stay.
    Paula's place is a little paradise. A wonderful garden full of flowers, palmtrees with seavue. A swimmingpool for your little bath before and after breakfast, the whole day if you want
    The bungalow is nice, well equiped and very confortable.
    Afife is a great place because of its very nice and clean beach and the different places you can visit in the surrounding such as porto, viana, caminha and the southern part of galicia with pontevedra, islas cies etc.
    All in all a very good place to stay.

  • Paula could not have been a more helpful host for us during our stay, helping us in multiple ways.

    The cottages are very pleasant and the garden is actually even nicer than the photos make it look.

    Overall, an excellent option for a relaxing holiday.

About
Something about ourselves I am a Londoner by adoption and have been here on and off for the last few years. My partner Alda charges me with running the place because of my linguistic capacities and my international experience.I am a woman in her mid-60's, trying to be a writer. I am a retired development consultant who worked many years as director of development/aid projects in southern Africa. I lived in London UK for over 15 years where I worked as a policy adviser for Migrants and Refugees and also as an official Police and Court interpreter and translator. I also have some experience in academic research work. I was born and raised in Mozambique though my parents were Portuguese. My high school years were spent in South Africa. My interests are varied and include: photography, restoration of old buildings, nature conservation, international connections and friendships. Whenever I am in Portugal I share the main house with Alda the owner, who is a lawyer (attorney-at-law) whose office is in the nearby charming historic town of Caminha. We like to travel and to share hospitality with kindred spirits and we also do home exchanges. note: We obviously prefer guests who show respect or their temporary home and know how to be tidy and clean up after themselves! We have had problems with guests not cleaning even though the cottages are self-catering so if you want to have the place cleaned and tidied for you please choose a hotel instead.
