About us

BEM VINDO (Welcome)


Bemvindo in Vivenda da bela vista (villa with the beautiful view). We Bert (Dutch man) & Sandy (Portugese/Dutch) went every summer to Portugal to visit some family of Sandy. At a certainn moment we got childeren and wanted to have our own place in Portugal.


It started with a phone call in 2005.

The person who called us told us there was a nice villa on a beautiful location. He told us that for sure we would love the view from the garden. We did not doubt a moment as we were looking at houses for a while. We went over to Portugal and were so impressed by the vieuw and the location of the house that we did a bid on that moment. And in two days we were the lucky owner of the villa.


We spend every summer a month at our house, so we see what needs to be done and so the house is always in good shape. As it is painted and repaired every winter (January 2017 a new kitchen was ready). The money earned with the hiring of the house is spend on improving the house. As we started hiring the house in April 2016 we could renoved the kitchen in November.  With the first money we earned with the house we affort us to have free wi-fi to all our guests.


We can assure you that we will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as we can. What you see at our website is exectly what you will find when arriving. We are partners of Booking.com and Airbnb.


Can we welcome you at Vivenda da bela vista?


Ate breve! (till soon)
