I'm a dynamic and enterprising person. Given the difficulties we are experiencing right now in Portugal, decided not to depress and fight, until I came across this idea of tourist accommodation that is really is my thing!
Personally I never liked the concept of hotel, I find them impersonal and equal to each other regardless of where in the world are.
I like people, cultures, the "mix" with the people and customs of each country or locality and "drink" your best. So, I think this project will be developed by me with great commitment, pride and love to receive. Respect the space and freedom of my guests, supporting them at all times and providing them a place that only a local person can do. I am a simple person, close, friendly, honest, charismatic and tolerant.
Rules?! They are important to good coexistence between people, it is a fact. However, it is believed that each person has the same awareness of respect and tolerance. It's just that I expect of my guests.
Can not live without my family, without my friends that keep close to me, since childhood and adolescence. I love to eat, drink and socialize. I love music, movies, parties ... but can not live without the moments of silence, quiet peace...!
I also hope you to come and enjoy all that I prepared with such care and attention, including the pampering and attention that are tailored to each guest and their needs. I sincerely appreciate that ... and of course recommend.
All the best and see you soon.
Sou uma pessoa dinamica e empreendedora. Perante as dificuldades que estamos a viver neste momento em Portugal, resolvi não deprimir e lutar, até que dei com esta ideia de arrendamento turistico que muito me agrada.
Pessoalmente nunca gostei de hoteis, acho-os impessoais e iguais entre si independentemente do local do mundo onde estejamos.
Gosto de pessoas, de culturas, de me "misturar" com as gentes e hábitos de cada local ou país e "beber" do seu melhor. Por isso, penso que este projeto será por mim desenvolvido com muito empenho, brio e gosto por receber. Respeitar o espaço e liberdade dos meus hospedes, apoiando-os em tudo e proporcionando-lhes momentos que só um local poderá fazer. Sou uma pessoa simples, próxima, afável, honesta, carismática e tolerante.
Regras?! São importantes na boa convivencia entre as pessoas, é um facto. No entanto, há que acreditar que cada pessoa tem esta mesma consciencia de respeito e tolerancia. É apenas isto que espero dos meus hospedes.
Não vivo sem a minha familia, sem os meus amigos que cultivo e mantenho, desde infancia e adolescencia. Adoro comer, beber e conviver. Gosto muito de musica, de cinema, de festas...mas também não passo sem os momentos de silêncio, sossego a paz. Não sei o que diga mais sobre mim?!
Espero ainda que venham e usufruam de tudo o que preparei com tanto carinho e atenção, inclusive dos mimos e atenções que sejam adaptados a cada hospede e suas necessidades. Quero sinceramente, que apreciem e claro...recomendem.
Tudo de bom e até breve.
