Termas da Azenha

Vakantiehuisjesverhuur in Portugal

The first and only Bed & Breakfast & Bathrobe in the world

A thief and a song (or two)

I’m so happy with all that space around me …

… especially on a Saturday afternoon, you get the feeling that the whole world is free and open, and come on, am I a workaholic or what? Of course there is still this and that, and even more, but can a person sit evenly as well?

I have a beautiful book.

I am a reader, so dear reader, if you are always just fiddling with your phone – get out of here!

A Facebook friend sent a nice piece of music. It is an Fb-friend with a very good marriage, so the music is also open to different interpretations (“I don’t live where I was born”).

And that’s where I am. Tears in my eyes, and a heart that almost bursts of emotion.

A nice book.

And a nice music.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! *

* If you read the book, you’ll understand this expression better. Which book?

“The book thief”, by Markus Zusak.

We moved here in 2000 from Rotterdam, Holland to the Termas-da-Azenha, Portugal. A big step, especially with two small children. We are busy to rebuild one of portugals cultural heirlooms: Termas-da-Azenha, an old spa which has been turned into several holiday homes, rooms and a small campsite, with a swimming pool, games like pingpong, foossball, pool, boardgames, and a FancyDressingRoom. You’ll find mosaics and paintings everywhere.

The old bathhouse is going to be a museum, where you can see how things have changed. The healing mineral water still runs through the baths, and is still of an excellent quality. Since 2018 we call ourselves the first B&B&B in the world – Bed & Breakfast & Bathrobes. You can buy a unique bathrobe or kimono in our webshop, or order one tailor-made, completely to your wishes.

Each week a little blog about what is happening around us. An easy read. A few minutes in another world. A little about what it going on in Portugal. If you plan your holiday to Portugal, it might be a nice preparation. We have some nice special offers on our site.

You can subscribe to this blog. You’ll get it every weekend in your mailbox.

On Sunday morning we publish it on our Facebook, on Pinterest, and on monday on LinkedIn.
