    Die Sternwarte ist sehr liebevoll und mit allem was man benötigt eingerichtet. Es ist ein einzigartiger Ort und war definitiv ein Highlight auf unserer Portugal Reise. Sophie hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und wir haben uns an dem Ort total wohl gefühlt. Am nächsten Morgen hat sie uns gute Tipps für die wunderschöne Umgebung gegeben, die wir direkt umsetzten konnten. Vielen Dank, für die unvergesslichen Momente, wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!

    Als wir die Fotos und die Beschreibung im Internet gefunden haben, konnten wir uns nicht vorstellen, was das genau sein sollte. Deshalb hatten wir erst mal für 3 Tage gebucht. Aus den 3 Tagen wurden erst 9 und dann kamen 5 weitere Tage dazu...
    Als wir ankamen, haben wir gleich die magische Ausstrahlung dieses Ortes gespürt: die Friedlichkeit, das Geräusch des Windes in den Eukalyptusbäumen, die Vögel und die einfache, liebevolle Einrichtung.
    Schon die erste Nacht haben wir uns wohlgefühlt, mit dem Blick aus dem Bett durch das Glasdach auf den Sternenhimmel.
    Die Sternwarte bietet beim Frühstück eine freie Sicht auf den Sonnenaufgang und am Abend mit einer Flasche "vinho-verde" auf den Sonnenuntergang.
    Ca. 20 Kilometer entfernt liegen die beiden Orte "Vila Nova de Milfontes" und "Porto Covo" mit ihren tollen Stränden.
    Schnell haben wir uns mit Sophie, ihrer Tochter und ihren Freunden gut verstanden und tolle Tipps für einsame Strände bekommen.
    Beeindruckt hat uns die alternative Lebensweise der Familie und die freien, glücklichen, süßen Kinder.
    Danke für die schöne Zeit, wir kommen bald wieder!
    Laura & Andy

    Die Sternwarte ist ein wunderschöner Ort, um Portugal abseits der Strände kennen zu lernen.
    Ich habe 4 Tage dort verbracht und die Ruhe sehr genossen. Die Sonnenaufgänge waren faszinierend, da sich die Sternwarte auf einem, mit kleinen Hügeln versehen Landabstrich befindet, sodass man eine weite Sicht auf die aufgehende Sonne hat. Die umliegenden Korkbaum-Felder laden zu spazieren gehen ein und ein naturbelassener See zum Baden.
    Die outdoor Küche hält alles parat, um sich selber zu verpfegen.
    In der Umgebung gibt es einiges zu entdecken. Auch die Strände sind sehr schön und wenig besucht.
    Ein Highlight war für mich der Ausritt mit den Pferden bei Vollmond-Dämmerung.
    Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit.
