"The perfect holiday"
I loved everything! Heiko and Laura are the best! They made me feel at home from the very first day. Food was great, appartment very nice. The area is very calm. Lajares is a very small village but for some misterious reason you feel at home there. Beaches around are beautiful and only a few minutes drive away from Lajares. Viola and Paola are the best yoga teacher ever. Full of unconditional love!!! :-)
I would recommend this place for all the people looking for relaxing holidays.
To me it was way above my expectations I will definitely go back!!

"a chilled, laid back week"
Both Laura and Heiko were attentive hosts; the atmosphere is calm and peaceful, no rush. Healthy vegetarian food, fruit and nuts always to hand. The small group is also a bonus.
The yoga was excellent. Paola is a treasure.
