It has been far too long since I last wrote. To be truthful, I was waiting for the magical moment when everything was completely finished and I could show you the prize. But this is Portugal and as one jigsaw piece gets placed, another pops out. And that has been our story for the past 2.5 years. All that said, we are opening this April YEAH!!! The walkers are starting to come in decent numbers and many stop to ask if we are open. Yes – we are that close. So I am going to show you the rooms that are getting their final touches for you to grace when you arrive and experience this venture. The real story is about to begin…as those doors open!
This post is dedicated to the sleeping quarters, which are housed on the second and third floors. We have beds for 18, plus an overflow capacity. The Pension Room has its own entrance, private bathroom with a shower and a wood burning stove.
The lofts have individual beds – 6 on one side and 4 on the other. A spiral staircase from the sleeping floor takes the walkers up to their accommodation and a steel bridge allows movement between the 2 loft areas.
The 6 bed bunk room has been designed so that no one is facing any other walker while sleeping. Each bunk is equipped with its own light and electric socket for charging technology. This room has its own wood burning stove for those cold rainy nights that no one thinks about in May through to September. But one thing Geof and I learned on our walks, is that there is nothing like being warm when the sun goes down from October through to April.
