We are together since 1997, when Ricardo moved from Lisbon to establish himself in Algarve. Back in those times we lived in a small villa not far from Almancil, about 15 km from Casa do Sonho. Then we sold that property and bought the current villa. After a couple years living here we decided to move again.
Ricardo. I’m Portuguese. I’m 50 something years old and I was born and grew up in Lisbon. After, I moved to Algarve, the southern end of my country. And there I stayed for about ten years, until I totally fall in love with Prague, where I live now part of the year. If it is of any interest, I can mention that I studied History in the university, then spent ten years of my life with the golden stripes of the Navy… until I decided to take over my own life and started a free lance webdesign career. And here I am now, ready to share with you all I know about this land of sand and golden sand beaches. About hobbies. Not many of them: read, read and read. Watching alternative movies. When I’m in Portugal I become a quad lover. Anywhere in the world I practice Geocaching and Couchsurfing. If you never heard about them you can always ask me. So, probably I will be the one waiting for you in the airport. ready to help with the rent a car process and to lead you to the villa.
Laura. I’m Portuguese too. I’m 40 something years old, born and raised in Algarve. I studied Tourism, but decided it wasn’t really my thing before finishing the degree. I was 18 years old but that didn’t stop me from start managing my family business – we own an electric appliances and furniture shop in Almancil – which I’ve been doing since then. In the last here I’ve been active in the rentals business, dealing not only with our own properties but also helping other owners renting out theirs.
