5/5 Excellent

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit bei Goncalo in der Casa. Das Anwesen ist wunderbar und mit viel Liebe gestaltet! Die Bilder zeigen gar nicht wie wundervoll der Ort ist, wobei wenn man das alles fotografieren soll, passt das auf keine Webseite. Sehr gefallen hat uns die grüne Oase unter den hohen Bäumen. Im Schatten sitzen oder in der einer der drei Hängematten liegen war für uns alle die Entspannung pur! Dabei kann man in dieser Idylle vielen Vögeln zuhören und zusehen, zwei bis dreimal am Tag wird das durch ein vorbeifahrendes Auto gestört :-) Und wenn es dann doch mal zu heiss wird, ab in den kleinen aber sehr feinen Pool. Goncalo selbst ist ein sehr sympathischer Vermieter, der dafür Sorge trägt das es den Gästen gut geht. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man außerhalb des Touristenrummels vom Alltag abschalten will. In der Nähe ist der Santa Clara Stausee, der mit optimaler Wassertemperatur und -Qualität sowie famouser Landschaft punktet. An der Algarve oder der Westküste ist man in ca. einer Stunde. Goncalo hat uns einen einsamen Strand empfohlen, selbst in der Hochsaison hatte man dort genug Platz- ein Genuss. Es war sicherlich nicht das letzte Mal, das wir diese Casa gemietet haben. Vielen Dank Gonzales für die wunderschöne Zeit.

5/5 Excellent

beautifully restored old Portuges house, very quiet
We stayed at the Artists Village Mid July 2018 for a week. The house is huge on a large piece of land. The garden has many fruit trees and hammocks and shady places and a lovely pool. The house is carefully restored with great taste by Goncalo, in traditional Portugese style, using Portugese antiques and a collection of the owners artwork inside and out. Everything you need is there and we instantly felt at home, being welcomed by the lovely owner. The house is actually situated in Corte Brique, very quiet and remote in the country side, the village of Santa Clara a Velha is 6 KM away. There you find 2 well stocked little supermarkets, a church, two bars and a tourist information point. There you can also catch up on the Rota Vicentina and you can also walk 5 KM to a huge lake. We missed the artists village as soon as we drove off. And would recommend it to everyone who seeks a real rural experience in an authentic Portugese setting.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous house, right in the middle of the countryside.
This is a quirky and beautiful house, lovingly restored by Goncalo, and containing many of his own artworks. It’s equipped with absolutely everything you need, and full of character. If you want bland, it’s not for you- but it was completely perfect for us. Beautiful garden, great pool, an hour from incredible beaches, and a short hop from a huge lake with its own beaches and pools. And a great selection of vinyl to keep us busy in the evenings. Woken up by the sound of bells from the grazing sheep. Awesome.

5/5 Excellent

Aldeia dos Artistas
Boa estadia Espaço muito natural e bem aproveitado com traços artísticos interessantes. recomenda-se

4/5 Good

Ambiente acolhedor e sossegado. Ideal para descansar em família no campo, longe da agitação da cidade. Onde o som dos pássaros juntamente com o odor da alfazema e a sombra das árvores em simultâneo com os banhos de piscina, nos dão uma sensação de liberdade e bem estar.
