Almost Christmas time and a brand new year! Time has flown. After the busy months, we enjoy our ‘holiday’. We decided to take a break and closed our B & B Algarve for two months this winter. So, at the moment we are relaxing and making a lot of trips to explore our new country further. At the same time, we are already preparing for the new season. Since mid-November, the builder has started to make some improvements in our B & B Algarve. Three of our guest rooms, who had previously the entrance through our living area, get their own entrance. We also make a new bathroom. Another job we already finished: we repainted all the rooms. Next month, the studio-apartment is scheduled for renovation. And not to forget, we made a beautiful new pool shower!
In the meantime, we make some trips in the weekends. Last weekend we went to Lisbon and Évora. Two beautiful cities in less than a 3 hours drive from our B & B Algarve. We quite enjoyed the ‘big’ city. We discoverd a fantasic ‘pub’ in Lisbon. One of Bert his favorites! A wine shop with tapas snacks, where you can chill out with (of course) a glass of wine. The choice was giant! As a wine lover you can go mad here. In Portugal the wine production is huge, but there is very few export of these excellent wines! Large wine producers are located in the Alentejo, where we drove through on our way to Lisbon. The landscape in the Alentejo: lots of vineyards alternate with cow fields (cheese!). We think, an excellent combination!
Happy holidays to you all and see you in 2016!
