    J’ai passé 6 belles semaines à Casa das Flores !
    En résumé : Amour, Paix et Joie.
    Carolyn et John sont des hôtes adorables avec qui j’ai vraiment apprécié de partager la maison et de nombreuses activités. Toujours souriants et prêts à faciliter le séjour des hôtes ils sont également de très bons conseils pour les journées d’excursion.
    Henry, la mascotte, est un petit chien amusant, un véritable Teddy Bear, que vous allez adorer.
    La maison et le jardin sont excellents pour se reposer, se rafraîchir dans la piscine et dormir au calme.
    Je recommande vivement de prendre les repas cuisinés par Carolyn, c’est une cheffe vegan hors pair !!
    Le village est mignon dans un écrin de nature. Ses habitants vivants et toujours activés aux jardins potagers.
    J’ai pu faire de nombreuses randonnées aux alentours. Je suis également allé à Coimbra ou Constance par le train.
    Un séjour très réussi aussi grâce aux cours de pilates de Gabriella et aux séances de méditation avec Diana.
    Un grand merci à John pour sa disponibilité malgré ses nombreuses activités, son sens de l’humour et sa devise quotidienne « don’t worry, be happy » qu’elle que soit la situation .
    Si vous si vous comptez aller à Tomar, vous devez aussi aller à Casa das Flores, c’est incontournable.

    Carolyn and John are fantastic hosts. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend for others to stay. We really enjoyed the outdoors, cooking and eating, as well as having fun conversations! Definitely check out Tomar and the surrounding areas if you can.
    If I can give them a 20/10 rating I could!

    Tes bon accueil de Carolyn, La chambre d'hote est au 1er etage avec son petit balcon qui donne une vue imprenable sur la campagne. Nous avons eu des difficultés pour trouver la maison car l'adresse donnée à la réservation n'était pas reconnu par le GPS

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
