Adorable bungalow with swimming pool
Set in a beautiful garden, right next to the swimming pool, our chalet-style bungalow is the perfect choice for those who love being surrounded by nature and being close to the sea. The air-conditioned bedroom and the power shower and whirlpool bath do wonders to relax your body and reboot your energies.
The bungalow is entirely independent from our house, at the other end of the garden, but within the same property.
The property is generously proportioned and the bungalow’s discrete position offers both intimacy and privacy.
Privacy from the road and neighbours is guaranteed by hedged fences and walls on three sides. On the fourth side we have no neighbours, which makes our property feel part of a very large area. The garden is mature with a pleasing mix of trees, bushes, forest floor plants and flowers. The swimming pool is set straight into the lawn and its generously large shower is surrounded by flowering climbing plants. There is a pleasant breeze through the trees and you can always find a fresh spot in the garden, with shade if need be.
The view from the chalet is beautiful (as indeed it is from anywhere on the property), with a great deal of greenery against a backdrop of forested hills and the chalet itself is a delight: it’s comfortable, cosy and welcoming.
The wooden floor is pleasant underfoot, even in winter, and the generous number of windows (there are five in the sitting room alone) allow the air to circulate freely and give the bungalow’s occupants the sensation that they are part of the garden, integrated with nature.
The sitting room and kitchen are open plan and offer a view of the garden. They are equipped with sink and drainer, a cooker, a mini-bar/mini-fridge, a microwave oven and the basic utensils necessary to use them, plus tables and chairs.
In the bedroom there is a double bed, an air conditioner, a conventional fan and a wardrobe and one large window plus a second door that opens out onto the garden.
There is a fantastic power shower and a whirlpool bath in the bathroom, both gas heated and pressurized.
We provide sheets, bedspreads, pillows and pillow cases and one bath towel and one hand towel per guest.
The bungalow has a small deck running around two sides with a hammock plus a table and chairs that can be used for meals al fresco.
This is a very romantic space that is perfect for a couple, but if necessary, there is space for a third person to sleep in the sitting room.
Guests may take advantage of the garden, the swimming pool and garden shower, and also the garden furniture - chairs, sun loungers, tables and parasol - and we can lend guests a portable barbecue with grill and spits.
We also provide internet free of charge (both via WiFi and ethernet cable, if required).
Interaction with guests
We are a relaxed, home-loving couple who get up early and go to bed early too. I am Brazilian and my husband is English. We are both freelance language professionals. We have been together for 17 years and have been living at this property since 2001. We like travelling, having friends over, cooking and reading. Our hobbies are gardening and DIY and we like to spend our time enjoying our house and garden. We are sociable and are happy to swap ideas and to provide tips and advice about the island and our neighbourhood. We are happy to chat over a beer in the garden (in Portuguese, English, Spanish or Italian), as long as we do not have work commitments. We enjoy our privacy and we kindly ask guests not to come into our own house without being invited.
Other things to note
The whirlpool bath in the bungalow is set into the floor of the bathroom and so people with mobility issues may find it difficult, or even impossible, depending on their restrictions, to get in and out of it.
We share our property with a varied range of local birds and animals and we have two cats, Tom and Lilly, who also share the property with us. In order to make sure than none of them feel threatened, we cannot accept guests with pets.
Smoking is fine in the garden and on the decking around the bungalow, but out of respect for future nonsmoking guests, we kindly ask not to smoke inside the bungalow.
We enjoy our privacy and we kindly ask guests not to come into our own house without being invited.
We like music and love silence.

Sou brasileira, natural de Santa Catarina e vim para Floripa no final dos anos 70, para fazer faculdade. Me apaixonei pela ilha e aqui construí minha vida, meu lar, minha família!
Sou simpática, extrovertida e adoro pessoas; elas são meu maior interesse.
Meu esposo, Rob, é inglês e estamos juntos fazem 20 anos. Somos ambos profissionais autônomos de línguas. Nossa casa é uma casa bilíngue, multicultural e cosmopolita.Gostamos de viajar, de conhecer pessoas, de cozinhar, de ler, de jardinagem, de DIY e de passar tempo sossegados, curtindo nossa propriedade, a praia e as maravilhas que a ilha tem para oferecer em meio à natureza.
Gostamos de música e amamos o silêncio.
