time flies when you’re having fun
Write a blog regularly I was told. Once a month is a requirement to keep in touch with visitors to your website. To your followers on your Facebook page. And moreover, it is of course also fun for your friends. Now you will have noticed, blogging is not really my thing. Last blog was a few months ago again ….. April this year was the last one I believe …. Oops! So work to be done.
If you ask me; “Helga go and decorate a room nicely”, then that’s no problem for me. I have furnished all the rooms in our bed & breakfast with great pleasure. Themes and decor devised for the rooms. Beautiful things in terms of decoration collected. Original lamps designed, adapted to the themes of the rooms. These lamps also homemade. Ehmmm …. well not by me, but by Armando, my husband. He really has, as they call it, two right hands. He can make anything I think of. IDEAL! I applied a coat of paint here and there, both indoors and outdoors. I can do that! It was great to do all this, especially when you finally see the result. Just look ff on the website.
results of hard work
The result of all our hard work was that we have created a nice stay for our guests. A stay that has received great reviews so far, since it opened on August 1. Guests who greatly appreciate the stay with us. Feel at home with us. Ratings like; “large rooms and very well furnished and a very comfortable bed”. Or; “the beds sleep fantastic”. “Very pleasant stay, in a quiet place that especially invited to rest”. “Sympathetic owners” was also such a nice compliment. But what kept coming back, especially in the reviews, was the fantastic view. And yes the view is indeed beautiful. A different sunset every day, beautiful.
We are still not out. Our next project is now almost finished. We are converting the former garage into a cozy dining room. Where we will serve breakfast on the somewhat cooler days. When the weather is nice and the sun is out, breakfast will of course be served on our beautiful terrace with the beautiful view. Another project is still; placing a beautiful wooden terrace around our Gré, above ground swimming pool. Once these jobs are done, photos will be posted on our website. As you can see, we are still doing our utmost to make Casa d’Oliveiral a more beautiful and more complete stay.
Now we have been in beautiful Portugal for almost a year. Time flies so fast. “Time flies when you’re having fun”. Mmmmm ….. I think I managed to write a blog again …? On to the next blog.
