Having lived abroad for over 10 years and sharing this great passion for traveling, I became very fond of house rentals both on business or pleasure trips. My travel experiences became richer and more comfortable and at the same time less expensive! There's no other way that I know which allows seeing a culture and people and getting in touch with the country culture and people you're visiting. OK, maybe couchsurfing... but can't really compare. It ain't the same concept. And I'm getting to old to live on a couch... :) In fact, it's not only that I like more a house rental all in all but also that when traveling with company the couch no longer suffices and there's a whole range of amenities that come into the picture and really start making sense and having a clear added value. Simple things like... a fireplace for a romantic evening, to share with your loved one - and a nice glass of Portuguese red wine from Alentejo.
It is these experience I want to share with you - my guests. Staying in this house - my house - will allow you to share many experiences and an insight to Portuguese culture or simply be left alone. Silence can be golden, right? The choice is yours.
If you can bring any item, token or sign from the country you live in, from your country of origin (or both!) to enrich the house's collection, I would be much appreciated. Together we'll find proper compensation for your gift! :)
I love sun, I use it every moment I can. I love the sea. It's unthinkable living without them. If you can bring a suggestion or an experience or a traveling recommendation which includes them - again, much appreciated.
We will try to give you... our best. It's all we can promise.
Oh... and by staying at my house, you'll also help me subsidizing my next trip: there's always another one coming. :)
Hope to see you soon. ;)
ps: if you're not really looking into a rental, if you think you need something different to my offer or if you're simply visiting the area and need further info, do not hesitate to drop a message. I will promise to do my best in helping out.
