I had an amazing experience at Villa Costa. Paulo was very kind to me and taught me a lot. The food was absolutely amazing. The work was straight forward and simple. Paulo works with you the entire time so you build a good bound. So overall I would recommend to anyone.

Eu super recomendo o Villa Costa, desde a minha chegada até meu último dia foi só alegria com o anfitrião Paulo. Ele e sua esposa Sandra me trataram como um membro da família, conheci suas filhas que são umas fofas, amigos pessoais e as suas duas cachorrinhas lindas e brincalhonas. Posso dizer que essa rápida experiência foi incrível; foram dias que eu nunca mais irei esquecer, fizemos alguns passeios juntos, Paulo me apresentou o litoral que é lindo demais, assim como a Sandra me levou alguns dias a ver o pôr do sol, o trabalho é muito legal eu amei minha nova família e já sinto saudades :)

Me gustaron los días que estuve en la casa de Paulo, el y su esposa son realmente muy buenas personas, no pude terminar mi estancia debido a una situacion personal pero los dias que estuve se portaron super amables conmigo, la habitacion era apartada de la casa pero completa lo unico un poco incomodo es que el baño esta fuera de la habitacion pero nada muy incomodo- Recomiendo mas ir en tiempo de calor ya que por ahora hace unpoco de frio. Es un poco alejado de la playa pero tu dia de descanso su esposa muy amablemente te puede acercarte y llegas caminando. Gracias Paulo por todo, saludos!!

Hi! There is no party or people, drinks or bikes. it is a house in a sloped terrain where the compost is on the top twinned to the dormitory. logs underneath the bedroom window. spiders. Floor with slime and without lighting to go to the bathroom that is distant. when I went, very low temperatures at night and wet the floor . No wi fi. to go to the city by bus only on scschedule 7:30am -7:30pm. taxi 20€ any time. They left for the holiday and gave me six slices of bread, half a portion of chips and a rasp of rice with turkey... I'm vegetarian. no more grocerie and December 30th. It was bad

Lillian was only here one day and disappeared, she does not know anything about what's happening in the eco-village, but since I said it badly, she decided to start it, it's a shame ...

About the host

Local calmo entre a Serra e Mar, junto a Portimão, Alvor e Lagos rodeado de belas praias e locais mágicos como as grutas onde os piratas se escondiam. Noites muito animadas com muitos bares e discotecas
