You’re on the edge of Taipa, a typical Portuguese village, and here to unwind; let your worries rush away whilst you’re surrounded by greenery. Behind an abandoned quarry has become a haven for wildlife whilst the front door leads to stretching woodlands.
Bed and breakfast guests gather around the table together and start the day with local eggs and bacon, cereals and breads. Ian is happy to rustle up whatever you fancy. On sunny days take your feast to the garden with a birdsong soundtrack.
Take one of the multiple trails through nature and explore this beautiful spot – a 30-minute stroll will take you to the lake – ask Ian for one of his luxury picnic hampers to enjoy in that fresh country air. Hop on the train to reach the historic city of Aveiro; wander the canals and visit the art nouveau cathedral.On an evening the fire is ready to be stoked and a pile of books and games waiting to be dived into.
