Interaction with guests
I will always be available for you through phone and email, however I'm away the most of the time.
People from my most confidence will help in the best way, in case you need.
The keys should be picked up in Lagariça, the bar-restaurant of the neighborhood, with the owner Joaquim.
His wife, Miquelina, works in the Mini Market, a little bit further, and will also help you in any situation.
Being Lagariça your first stop, is a sympathetic way to be welcome to this unique place: Charneca do Guincho is almost as secret traditional Portuguese village.
From here you get to the beach in 5m drive or 12 min bike, or (and I really love this option) 28m walking. The way is lovely, surrounded by Nature.
Guincho beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal and is world famous for surfing, kite-surfing and wind-surfing.
If you do not live without your jogging, you have plenty of possibilities: either along the road to the beach and around the village, or in the beach where the area of sand is longer enough.
In this village we have as well a horse riding school. If you never tried, is a must to do!
And tennis court to rent in the village is also possible.
Although this holidays is for those who seeks a energizing, revitalizing and restorative break, you also have the option to have party time: Guincho bar (located at the north end of the beach) is open all summer long until late hours, with music, great cocktails and regular beach Reggae parties and occasionally out side DJs also invited.
A great holidays is what expect you here!

I am Portuguese, mother of two wonderfull kids and married with an amazing german man.
Apart from my family I am in love with Portugal and Brazil, and to show this two beautifull countries to everyone that is happy to come.
I always received friends from abroad and for me it was such a pleasure showing them my city: Lisbon! I am glad that everyone had always so wonderful time there with me.
Actually it was like this that I got to know my husband, we met in London while both living there and he visited me in Lisbon. After we moved to Berlin, we are nowadays living close to Dusseldorf and traveling between Portugal and Brasil.
Because of my languages, social and cultural skills, my friends trust me to manage holidays stays in their homes. And I do it with all my heart!
You always can write me in portuguese, english, german, spanish and even french. I like to received my guests with some nice little gifts and I even made a personal guide book in each house that I manage, from the area of the house. Is a guide with my private tips.
Therefore I like to contact one week before my guests to plan the arrival and during the stay at least once I like to hear if everything is in order.
I hope you can trust me and give me the happiness to welcome you in the houses I manage from my friends.
