Ein wunderschönes, ursprüngliches Plätzchen mitten in der Natur am Rande eines kleinen, typisch portugiesischen Ortes. Ursprünglich und doch mit allem, was man braucht um sich wohl zu fühlen. Hier kann man abschalten und die Seele baumeln lassen. Liz und Malcolm haben hier ein kleines Stück Paradies geschaffen.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Malcolm and Liz. Malcolm met us at the roundabout off the IP3 and led us back to his place. What a quaint little village they live in. So relaxing and friendly. Liz gave me a tour of the garden and we were able to enjoy some of the herbs and veggies from the garden. We had such quiet sleeps. Malcolm and Liz are close to Coimbra and several other interesting little spots to visit. We were able to get a real feel for rural Portugal. Thank you for such a comfortable retreat.

Melcolm and Liz habe created a Paradise in Earth. The Place is really good for being close to the nature. The terrace served us for breakfast or dinner by candlelight. The quiet and the view were the perfect break. Malcolm was always there to take us by car. Liz showed us her organic garden - it so wondeful! There are some fresh fruit and eggs to taste.The apartment offers besides two bicycles and many beautiful hiking trails. Malcolm and liz are the perfect hosts! Thank you so much you two, thank you for feeling like at home.

A great place in a green and peaceful valley to escape from busy cities. Still close to Coimbra and Porto. You can go on a hike starting right from the house door. Malcolm and Liz are excellent hosts, who made us feel very much at home and shared their homegrown vegetables. We've really enjoyed the deck of the house with lovely views of the surrounding forest. Would love to return in the future!

Hi Malcolm and Lizz, It was great to stay in Betty's retreat. Beautiful environment, sympathetic and helpful hosts. Beutiful garden, a result of long term enduring investment. I really enjoyed the tour in the garden with its banana plants, ginger, peppers and flowers. Thanks for staying

Our first impression of the hosts (by reviews from other guests) and the beautiful stay in a stunning environment was leading for us to want to enjoy three nights with Malcolm and Liz. So we were somewhat surprised by the actual meeting with Malcolm who didn't get out of his car (we were lost and Malcolm showed us the way to his airbnb) to shake hands with us. Later on he was almost careless in showing us the house. Liz didn't shake hands with us either: she stood on the stairs before their part of the house and we had to go to her to make our acquaintance. The house itself was nice (with everything one needs to have a pleasant stay) and the environment was very beautiful and very relaxing. It is a pity that we didn't feel as if we were very welcome. We hope, that this is a big misunderstandung from our side and wish both Liz and Malcolm all the best.

Antwort von Malcolm:
Liz and I always greet our guests, Liz did shake hands and I drove 1/2 hr to find them and guide the guests to Bettes Retreat. At the round about it is illegal to stop and get out of car I found them and that was good. I think the fact that their English was poor there was misunderstandings. We care a great deal for our guests safety and happiness. Most important we respect our guest privacy which obviously Sarah interpreted negatively. Additionally Liz provided veg and eggs from garden and hens...happy travels
