some("La familia Costa es muy amable,atenta y servicial. Te incorporan como un miembro más de la misma.Mi estadía fue increíble, desde el día que llegué me llevaron a pasear,me enseñaron sobre la cultura del país y me invitaron a cada plan que tenía la familia.Tanto Sandra cómo Paoulo intentan ayudarte en lo que necesiten y te brindan todo lo mejor. La casa es súper grande y está rodeada por una hermosa naturaleza.\nPaoulo te brinda todo tipo de ayuda para realizar las tareas y tiene mucho sentido del humor,lo cual hace muy divertido y que se pase rápido el trabajo.")

Desde el primer momento me sentí parte de la familia. Pauolo y sandra son excelentes personas, muy amables y viven en un maravilloso lugar rodeado de naturaleza y las tareas son para ayudar a mantener bonito y limpio el lugar. Me han llevado a conocer las playas y fue todo super bien! Recomiendo que conozcan villa costa : D

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.

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
