We really loved staying at Annebel's and Adam's place. The nature, the animals, the view.. everything is amazing and wonderful. It is 'off the grid' and that makes it special. Annebel and Adam give good advice and are really helpful (and the food is home-made and so delicious). Warm shower, good matress, calm and queit; it's perfect and we recommend it to everybody! Hopefully we can visit again in the future... :)

Bonne adresse pour nos attentes de calme, tranquilité, et de dépaysement . Adam prépare de très bon repas végétarien avec des produits frais et locaux

I spent 3 nights at Annabel & Adam's place, in a very confortable big tent. I also shared very good breakfasts and dinners with them and their guests. It was one the best Air B&B experience in Portugal ! Why ? Because Annabel & Adam are two awesome persons (kind, helpfull, engaged in their life and so on...), the place is absolutely beautiful and peaceful, because they have different cute animals, because you are closed to the nature (you can go for a walk in Serra da Estrela Natural Park or very nice villages around). Also because you are "together" ! I totally recommend to stay at Annabel & Adam's place alone, with friends or your family ! Again: thank you so much :-D

Annie and Adam were fantastic hosts. They were available whenever we needed, were always happy to help and were quick to sort out any issues. The location is remote but we knew this. We arrived by train and Annie and Adam picked us up for a small charge (much cheaper than a taxi). We were travelling with a toddler and she was also made to feel very welcome. She loved all of the animals, playing in the stream and swinging in the hammock overlooking the mountains in the distance. There are cooking facilities and the option of breakfast, lunch and dinner cooked by Adam. We ate Adam's yummy vegan food each evening and would definitely recommend it, especially the cake!!

Adam and Annabel are great hosts, friendly and with an eye on the needs of a guest. The place is rural and a like little paradise.

Fantastic place to chill out and enjoy the outdoors. Annabel and Adam are very friendly and Adam is a great cook. Our son did not want to leave after 6 nights.

I highly recommend staying at Annabel and Adam. They are great hosts (and cooks!!!) and made our stay even better by sharing their interesting stories. we slept in a large tent with a nice and warm bed, which all looked really good and clean. the views are amazing and the whole place is self sustainable, and has a great vibe. also nice: there are many different sweet animals!

O local ideal para entrar em contato com um SIMPLES MODO DE VIDA, super enriquecedor. A simplicidade, a harmonia, a tranquilidade e a boa enrgia que este local emana, torna-o perfeito, para o desafio de entrar em contato direto com a natureza, os animais da quinta ( tão ternos). A Annabel e o Adam, foram acolhedores fantásticos, partilharam a sua experiência de vida e o seu modo simples e tranquilo de estar. O Adam cozinha muito bem, adorámos a nossa refeição deliciosa. Os cavalos são fantásticos, os galinaceos passeam livres pelo campo, e os cães são os mais ternos que já conheci. Aconselho a quem queira mesmo entrar em contato com a natureza, observar as estrelas, viver o momento presente...meditar Obrigados Annabell e Adam, boa sorte para o vosso projecto. voltaremos. A simple way of life...a good energy...a beautiful place to get intouch with nature itself. A peaceful place to be, and to learn what really is important in our daily life. Thanks Annabelle for our meditation momemt, thanks Adam for your tasty food, and above all thanks for your sharing and company. Wish you good luck for your projet, see you again. kisses Carla , armando e Beatriz

My daughter and I loved our stay here. Annie and Adam and their animal family members were very welcoming. We enjoyed a delicious vegan dinner and breakfast and slept comfortably in the trailer which was very clean. We would highly recommend staying here for those who like a fresh air, outdoors experience. Thanks Annie and Adam for your hospitality!

Tout s'est très bien passé: en plus de leur chaleureux accueil et d'une cuisine excellente, nos enfants ont pu interagir avec molly, la mini poney et s'amuser avec les autres animaux. La tente était spacieuse et située dans une zone ombragée avec des toilettes à proximité, et confortable.

Annabel and Adam have a beautiful spot with wonderful views of the region - a true countryside retreat. We stayed in the caravan much to our seven year old's delight and she said this was the highlight of our entire trip travelling around Spain and Portugal. Adam cooked delicious vegan meals which we all really enjoyed. The hosts were kind, helpful and committed to their Eco-friendly lifestyle. A stay here is a real tonic. We can highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful stay at Annies & Adams. The place has a relaxed & welcoming atmosphere. Adam is a great cook (our 6 year old: "I wish I could eat like this everyday") and they were helpful and kind in every way. The animals are lovely, the view over the land stunning and we happily fell asleep each night in tent to the sound of nature. We are planning to come back.

Superbe séjour dans un cadre très nature , sauvage et authentique.Nous avons dormi dans la caravane avec mes deux enfants qui ont adoré côtoyer les chiens , chats , chevaux et poneys du camps .Le repas vegan était très bon et d'un super rapport qualité prix. Je retiendrais surtout l'esprit chaleureux de convivialité et de sincérité d'Annabel et de son ami . De belles personnes ...Merci !

Annabel's retreat is perfect, tucked away in a valley it's both quiet and has a lot to offer for daily activities, like swimming, hikes, horse riding, meditation and yoga. The food is delicious and I could not recommend this retreat highly enough. Thankyou!

Very nice place and hosts, a great experience !

Olivia August 2016

Annabel's place is just dreamy! I was really sad that I could only spend the weekend there. Its peaceful and relaxing. The perfect spot to recharge your batteries (figuratively speaking ;) ). Definitely returning in the near future.

We spent 3 days at Annabel Melo and Adam . This was a wonderful experience to live in their vegetarian/vegan ecolo camp. Living in nature, sleeping in the tent, meet other people, it was beautiful. This allowed us to de-stress , Annabel thank you for yoga, the discovery of life surrounded by animals . They are very nice, with a smile , like sharing and friendly nature . A big thank you for your hospitality and generosity. Laura , Carole , adeliane and Amir .

Stephane July 2016

Annie and Adam were wonderful hosts. They picked us up from the station even after us being delayed twice. Their farm is a very special place to stay, situated in the stunning mountains with incredible views. We stayed in the bell tent which was very comfortable and well laid out. The food they provided was delicious, with a great variety and amazing value. There are some lovely walks around the farm and spectacular sunsets. An added bonus is having all the animals around! We would highly recommend to all that are looking for a memorable experience. Thanks so much and hope to come again.

Juno and Henry July 2016

We had a very relaxing time at the farm. We felt very welcomed and we're given a little tour of the farm to start with. The instructions on how to find the place were very helpful and we had no trouble getting there. The caravan was great, set up with a double and a single bed, lots of pillows and blankets and a great view into the valley and the surrounding mountains. The food was sensational and it was lovely to sit up at the house and chat with everyone. We were so relaxed it was hard to leave! Would definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back sometime! Thanks again!

We had a lovely time staying at Annie and Adams place. The setting for the accommodation is stunning, very rural and quiet.They met us at their house and gave us a tour of their land and introduced us to their many dogs and horses. We slept in a tee-pee which was lovely, clean and cosy. It is a ten minute walk to the local village where there is a pizzeria. Amazing for anyone who likes the outdoors, and relaxing in beautiful surroundings.

Un grandioso lugar con una vista increible, gente maravillosa y cuartos especiales, es un lugar muy acojedor, tranquilo y en completo contacto con la naturaleza, esta muy limpio y tranquilo. la mejor experiencia que se puede tener en este lugar es dar un paseo a caballo disfrutando del olor del campo y sus coloridos valles. Annabel muchas gracias por brindar la oportunidad a las personas de compartir tu estilo de vida, tu casa es un lugar que definitivamente esta recomendado para todo el mundo.
