Monte da Cunca!
Excellent, I'll frequent it again!!!!!
with surfing, kayaking and paragliding opportunities and no supplies I was taken care of outside of the staffs busyness and deadlines with the finest hospitality under the conditions.
While in the midst of renovations at the height of maintaining the organic gardens by weeding and planting, visitors at their leisure also contributed to building staircases out of eucalyptus trunks, prepared cullinary wonders from out of the shared kitchen with use of the wood fired oven in which good ol' fashioned sourdough bread, pizza baked sweet potato, squashes and sooo much more was provided.
The family run establishment managed to provide me with fabulous service such that I could imaging getting on my short notice when I was not equipped for it.
They provided me with surf board, wetsuits, offered to show me landing zones and launch sites for paragliding and drove me around to tour the surrounding area as well as set up travel arrangements back to the Lisbon airport.
I met many wonderful pople staying there. WE had a lots of fun together. A most memorable stay for sure I'll do it again. Highly recommend for outdoor adventurists like me.
