About us

Our story

A Belgian couple and travel agents in Belgium for 25 years, at the beginning of 2020 we decided to leave everything behind and fulfil our dream of living and working abroad! Having been in the tourism business all our lives, it was obvious that we wanted to continue in that direction, when we fell in love with this "Vivenda" for sale. At the same time, we fell in love with the centre of Portugal and are convinced that you too will feel at home here, with the warm welcome of the locals, the green nature and the beautiful landscapes in this part of the country.

"Do everything to make your stay unique!"

Indeed, our experience in travel allows us to make your stay in our "Guest House" the best it can be. Whether it's the welcome on your arrival, the different services during your stay, the information on what to do in the area,... we are here to accompany you as we live on the spot.

Are you ready to discover Portugal in a different way, off the beaten track and away from mass tourism?

See you soon then, Gene & Didier
