Interaction with guests
I am free-lance photographer and I have been living in Dubai for almost 10 years. My husband and I have lived in many countries. I was born in Germany and my husband in Finland. We both grew up in Brazil and did our university studies in the USA. After our studies we lived in the USA, France, Germany, Hong Kong, etc... We chose Portugal to live in since we speak the language fluently and also because the Portuguese people are really fantastic. During our frequent absences, our property manager will welcome our guests: The very friendly and hospitality-experienced Veronika Seres.
Albufeira is spotlessly clean, the people are extraordinary friendly, calm, helpful and tourism-savvy. The town is the most beautiful of the region, due to the hilly site, organically developed vernacular architecture and great beaches. You also got an elevator to get down to the wind protected beach.
15 minute walk to town center and beach along boat house and fishermen's wharf. 7 minute walks each to 2 great restaurants. Pool.
Other things to note
In town there are great venues for shows and sports, entertainment strips, public olympic level pools. All conveniences, malls, shops of all kinds are either in-town or within a 20 minute drive.
The expectancy is that the guest will keep the place in a reasonable order and
without damages, be careful with the Furniture, Furnishings and Equipment, and be Ecologically-conscious and Energy- saving. Noise is expected to be kept to reasonable levels as not to disturb neighbours and cause complaints and interventions by the security. Pets are not allowed. There are generously dimensioned terraces, so smoking is allowed only outdoors. Smoke infiltration into the interior is to be carefully avoided (just close the doors). Please consider the next guests, who may/ will be non-smokers.
For pets we will decide according to situation.

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page"
This is my life motto. I travel a lot because of my job and love to talk to people from all over the world. I have lived in 9 countries spread around several continents.
I now live in Dubai where people from 147 countries live together in one city.
There is always a lot to absorb from all of these different cultures.
Being a host is then a natural extension of this multi-cultural interaction.
