Our qute appartment was so beautyfully made with natural materials and love. We felt instantly at home. Though ours seemed small it had all that we could possibly need. We enjoyed sitting underneath the arches covered with flowers, sipping our wine and eating spaggetti made with fresh veggies that we got from the owners picked an hour earlier fresh from the land.
The all you can eat Pizza night at the owners farm 100 m down the road has stuck in my taste buds forever. They kept appearing hot from the woodoven! Unresistable... What a treat.
We got a sense of living close to the land and the enviroment. Impressive to see how well natural energy made sure our phones where charged and our water re-used for the garden.
We loved Monte da Cunca!
