Peace, love and a beautiful beach in a small town where everyone knows each other. Very near to wonderful Sintra and Lisbon. Beautiful landscapes where you can just walk to. We are situated on the heart of Praia das Maçãs where you can find a super market and restaurants. One minute walking from the beach.
When we receive a volunteer, he/she becomes part of the family. We are brother and sister partners in business and the restaurant next door to the hostel belongs to our father. So this a small family business where our volunteers always feel welcome and at home.
This experience in the apples BBC hostel it was great ,though in praia das Maças in the time of the year that I've been there it was low season so there aren't too many people, anyway it was an amazing experience because it is close to sintra and Lisbon so I used to visit those awesome place besides the ocean and the incelredible natural place.
I learning a lot about Portuguese culture, the place it is beutiful and the meal in the restaurant of the father of Luçia it is amazing with typical dishes.
I'm really thankful with Luçia her brother and her father too.
