... a picturesque hamlet ...

"Firstly, I want to congratulate you on renovating with taste and quality ... I can’t get your “Authentic Portugal” out of my head – I really appreciate your design and taste especially having rented and viewed so many properties in Portugal (both central and in the Lisbon area) where “quality” isn’t always the same as my expectations and standards. So many properties say “renovated” but are done by DIY enthusiasts with more enthusiasm than skill or taste. Well done for turning a small corner of Portugal into a picturesque hamlet worthy of any rustic holiday postcard!"

... I don't think that we could have hoped for a more friendly stay.

"You've got a lovely home with plenty of space to chill outside or inside. Looking around the Internet at the time I think it was very competitive.
With us turning up so early on the 1st day with no prior warning we could have had a cold welcome, but you welcomed us with a cuppa and a chat and some helpful info on the local area. Not forgetting a trip to the local shops and a lovely bbq and some pretty good locally made vino. Your knowledge of the local area was very helpful I don't think that we could have hoped for a more friendly stay.
Thank you for being a great host and having such a lovely home.
All the best, thanks again and maybe see you again sometime."

You told us to write something bad on this book, ok........

Dear Robert
I think we don't have to write alot, because you saw that we enjoyed living here!
You told us to write something bad on this book, ok........
Let's start (smile) the idea to make the trip to São João do deserto was great ... unfortunately you forgot to give us the advice to take more clothes - very windy - (smiles).
Unfortunately we can't answer your wish to write more bad things because there are NO MORE !
Thank you for the great idea to build such a beautiful Bio-pool where we relaxed all the time.
For my luck Andreas is still living after drinking that horrible 'aguardente' (smiles).
Thank you for being such a nice man.
Love and greatings.

What more could anyone want .....

A truly beautiful place in a wonderful country. Chance to wander, read, float and dream. Add a dog with soulful eyes, a cat crammed with attitude, and a host of vision and humor. What more could anyone want .....
Leaving is a wrench, many thanks Robert for a wonderful holiday.

THE place to be !

"While searching for villas I reviewed well over 300 other properties and it was Lomba that I kept coming back to. The ambiance of the place is quite apparent which places it in a unique category which is what I look for when I travel. That being said I also emailed the link to Marg (my travel partner) and her reaction was the place looked so good she feared we might never get out to check out the countryside as she wouldn't want to leave"

The above was written prior to the visit, the following during.

If one truly believes and seeks out of place where fireflies dance, wine is abundant, hammocks sway and an ending view over the mountains of Portugal. All come together and combined with the romanticism of an exquist stone cottage than Casa da Lomba is THE place to be. Add to the package a consumate host and one's time in this place is perfect !!

The following when Peter got home to Canada.

I certanly made the right decision in selecting your property. It was all that I imagined would be and more. The time, care and efford that you put into your house oozes back out in terms of charm, comfort and ambience all of which makes for a unique moment in time which is the reason we travel in the first place.
