Termas da Azenha

Vakantiehuisjesverhuur in Portugal

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

Hip hip hurray blog

I was standing next to my bed at 6 o’clock      (like every morning in the summer)

Had breakfast with coffee and cake        (like I do every day – good Portuguese custom: o café de manhã com um bolo)

And then it was party time


Many dragons defeated this year (but as an entrepreneur and small self-employed person in the hospitality business that is fairly normal, so not worth mentioning)

No frogs kissed (imagine it becoming a prince – will you have another problem … never mind, those frogs, there are way too many here in that valley anyway, the storks love that – and maybe that has something to do with each other, those kissed frogs turning into princes and storks bringing babies – or am I going too far?)

I’ll probably wake up like this tomorrow …. (thank you all for your messages, so sweet!)


Til next week!

Every week on Sunday morning you will find a new blog in your mailbox. Every week you spend a few minutes in Portugal. Just on your own comfortable sofa.

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.
