Termas da Azenha

Holiday rentals in Portugal

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

Happy Easter in April

The title says it all: have a nice Easter weekend everyone, have a good rest – hopefully the weather will be nice for you.

April has just started. An April-Easter is the best!

The most beautiful month of the year. I wish I could also let you smell how this wisteria delights our part of the world with its presence, but unfortunately that’s not yet one of the technical possibilities.

The whole village smells of wisteria and orange blossom, and the strangest thing is: we keep on smelling it! Normally your receptors get full, don’t they? But ok, no complaints about that!

One wakes up with singing birds (dusk because that weird summer time has struck again) and around 11 the little froggies start. In a little while, the whole valley will be full of them. With frogs, ánd storks.

Til next week! A sunny greeting and lots of love!

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.
