Completely remodeled beach house, offering a relaxed, chilled environment for family and friends. The house is just 1 min away from the beach, and you can hear the sound of the waves all throughout inside it. You will love the experience!! :-)
“This lovely house really is a paradise by the ocean. We thought we might travel around a bit while we were staying here but instead we spent the whole week here and only here, there was no need to go anywhere else! Everything you need for chilling out and unwinding is all at the doorstep. Inês, the owner is a perfect host. She was always thoughtful and available and ready to help us out with our questions, went out of her way to give us good advice and made sure we were happy. Check-in and check-out was really easy. In fact, all the locals we met, including the neighbours, were friendly, generous and welcoming. The house is a pretty Portuguese cottage, done out in a simple, chic beach style, and all the modern amenities you need, with a super power shower, fluffy towels, a sunny courtyard at the back to wash down and dry out your wetsuits and even a hairdryer. There's no wifi but we didn't miss it at all - why waste time on the internet when you will miss out on the scenery outside! For any essential internet needs, our mobile phones had a good download signal from the house. It is only a two minutes walk to the beach, and what a stunning beach. I'm Australian and I have high standards about what I consider to be a good beach and this one is up there with the best - a blue flag rating, clear clean water, a wide expanse of clean golden sand that never feels too crowded, surf for every level of skill plus life-guards on the beach every day to make sure you keep safe in the water. You can hire beach beds and umbrellas or take your own. Behind the beach, there is a wide shallow river, with a sandy bottom and sandy shore, great for little kids to play in and for paddle boarding and kayaking. You can hire surf boards (short and long boards, soft or hard) - paddle boards (inflatable or hard), boogie boards and kayaks from the beach shack nearby. We brought our own wetsuits because the Atlantic is about 20 degrees while we were there but we only used them for when we were in the water for a long time, for surfing, otherwise we went swimming without them. You can hire wetsuits at the beach as well if you need them. Within one minute's walk of the house there are three great cafes/bars. No need to drive anywhere to have fresh coffee, pastries and squeezed juice in the morning, and for lunch or in the evening a choice of great local seafood, tapas, wine, beer and cocktails and gin. The bars are cool places to hang out, good music, not rowdy or rough. Praia do Odeceixe is magical, a laid back, easygoing place to forget about work, destress and enjoy. If you want somewhere where you can go to sleep at night listening to the sound of the ocean, watch the spectacular sunsets while you take a romantic stroll on an empty beach after the day visitors have left and feel like you have the beach almost entirely to yourself, then this is for you. We are definitely coming back. Thank you Inês!”
This amazing home-made house is newly renovated and located on our small farm where we grow vegetables and fruit trees. The house is made out of rammed earth and stones, placed just a few meters from the gorgeous river of Seixe, surrounded by green hills and fields. The valley is very calm and full of animals such as cows, horses, goats, donkeys, pigs & sheep. In the hot days you can take a cooling dip in the river or visit the amazing beach only 6 km away!
“Gal’s place was everything we expected and more. It was an amazing property that had super sustainable practices. We were able to cook delicious meals with the housewares provided and they gave us great suggestions for eating out and watching the sunrise. One person in our party was able to rent a board and catch the great surf while the rest of us were able to sit on the beach and enjoy the beautiful landscape. I would recommend Gals place to anyone looking for some relaxation and/or to explore the amazing beaches. I hope to return someday.”

“We think there is just one word to descripe Johanna's and Gal's place and it's a paradise. The area is amazing, one of the most beautiful and relaxed places we have been during our journey.
