Spring has sprung


The cottage has been re-vamped for the new season, the garden is flourishing and the sands are warming up!


A Sunny Winter tidy up



The New Year has arrived and with that the annual tidy up of Casa do Brinco!


We recently arrived back to Portugal to a warm welcome of sunshine, a lusciously matured garden and lots of painting on the agenda. A spruced up cottage for the new season is on the cards! New pictures soon to follow…

The Summer is rolling on with happy visitors…


I just received this lovely comment  from a visitor  who stayed at the cottage in June,

“It has been a wonderful stay and we are now totally enchanted with your community and its environs – we understand why you love it here.  Went for the cliff walk yesterday and were awed by all we saw. Can’t thank you enough for introducing us to this wonderful corner of the earth! Just came back from spectacular Quinta de Regalia, what a place. We spent 3 hours wandering around those incredible grounds. We stopped by both Praia Grande and Praia das Macas. Quite a different atmosphere between them and watching the surfing is quite incredible, wild waves! Your house is perfectly appointed, beautifully situated and the town is a delight. And OMG… the beach is a wild life form all its own”
