My name is Olga and I live in Portugal since 2009. I am married to a very talented man, which I adore. I can compare Portugal to a first love.
It was also the first Western European country to me. I am very interested in the history of this nation, and in family traditions.
This genuine interest and deep desire to preserve the memory of my
husband ancient country roots led to the idea of organizing a small family museum and revitalize vacant for a dozen years patrimonial estate, turning it into a guest house in the warm season. It is well-known that only the presence and movement of people are able to inspire and revive housing.
Here all is natural, no antique restyling. There is much in needs of rebuilding and renewing, but we do not just want to replace all with modern materials, and thereby deprive the authenticity of the ancient structure, namely restoring, preserving wood and natural stone and architectural forms.
Moreover, the hand and mind of the artist and sculptor are able to carefully attend to this complex work.
The practice of receiving guests in the house showed that it’s suitable for couples with children and pets,. The absence of television and the Internet at home on your holiday - ideology of our oasis of spiritual and bodily health. There is a nice alternative to the news and show-browse a selection of magazines and newspapers of 20-30-year-old, or read a traditional paper book.
There are 5 things that I can not live without – a photographic camera, a bicycle, a needle and thread, a pencil and paper, a knife and scissors.
Where I like to travel? I dream to visit the Nordic countries.
What I am a guest? Curious. Give me your family album or the ability to dig into your wardrobe-and grandmother's you’ll forget about my existence.
What I a mistress? Hospitable, of course! Is it possible to be different when venturing
HOUSE FOR FRIENDS!
