The Experience

There is a second house that needs a deck made of boards and other similar materials. The main house needs a stain of painting in the ceiling. Also, 4 walls need a covering with concrete and painting in white. Outside, there are fences to replace, so that animals do not invade the estate, coming from the woods. It is possible to garden but this is more as an opportunity to relaxing.

Filomena and her family are very affectionate people. So far it has been a fabulous experience. The place is very nice, it is very close to Braga, a highly recommended destination to visit in Portugal. The work of the house is simple and good for those who like the countryside and ecotourism.

Foi um prazer enorme contribuir para o projeto da Filomena e do Helder. O casal é super simpático e receptivo. O local fica a 7km da cidade, onde fomos algumas vezes para nos atualizar no mundo virtual. Não tem sinal de celular na localidade, mas pra mim isso não foi problema, nos diatraímos de outras formas, conversando, jogando palavras cruzadas.. Foi bem divertido.
