Corte da Preguica
Ranked #2 of 3 Sao Luis B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The name says it all. Preguiça means laziness in Portuguese, and that is exactly what you should expect from this rural hotel. It was all thought for you to relax. Ok starting with breakfast: its from 9am to 9pm! It includes freshly squeezed orange juice and a diversity of local products you can only dream of if you-like us- live in a city all year round. Zé, the owner, and Mariana, the lovely lady who does a bit of everything there make sure you have your daily news even before you ask for it. In addition there is a generous salty water pool with no chemicals on it. A basketball field, bikes to ride and the most comfortable room you can think of. Several beautiful beaches are only 20mins away and local village is less than 5 minutes walking. Our bedroom was quite big, bed was comfy and the TV had CNN on it. We were not expecting it in the middle of nowhere. Wifi is super fast as well. If anything I could only point out the fact that our bedrooms had only a shower and no bath tube, but that is not an issue for us anyway. Its real value for money if you need a place to just r-e-l-a-x. Lastly, there is always something that I truly value when reviewing services- the expection. Those little details that were not expected to happen but when they do happen how does the service provider react? In this case, as life goes we had to leave a day earlier. We were expecting a tremendous reaction given that it was so short notice (same day!). Zé's reaction? No problem, we just want you to be happy with your stay :) We left with no nightrate charge whatsoever and sure we will be back whenever we can.

From the moment we arrived we were made so very welcome by Jose. It is peaceful, well appointed, in a charming setting. The salt water pool is so refreshing after returning from walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Jose cooked the evening meals which were superb. The local village is about ten minutes walk away and although small is well worth the stroll. A delightful place to stay.

I stayed here for one night on 27 May before commencing a walk on the Rota Vicentina (Vincent Route). The owners, Jose and Cristina, are very welcoming and hospitable. My room was in an annex to the house just steps away from the terrace and outdoor pool. I really enjoyed dinner here which was cooked by Jose and included some delicious local goat´s cheeses, a fabulous "three fish" soup flavoured with corriander, a chicken curry and a mouthwatwering fresh mango mousse. Local wines and good conversation. Life here is very laid back, hence the name of the place which translates as "laziness" but the laid back atmosphere hides a very professional and attentive service.
