An entertaining blog

about everything that happens in the Termas-da-Azenha, with guests, volunteers, animals, portuguese culture and much more. Termas-da-Azenha is a holiday resort, but please don´t associate this with beige luxury. We do things a bit different – in a homey way, so everybody can feel free to do what he or she likes. We like to make big mosaics and wall paintings, so there´s a lot to see everywhere.

In these blogs we try to give you an impression about our lifestyle, what you can expect, some nice anecdotes – little amusing stories, nothing big or worldchanging. Still, we hope you´ll like it, and if you do, we appreciate it very much if you take the trouble to let us know.

We have a few cats, 3 donkeys and a dog (the donkeydog). We work with volunteers all year ’round. We like to think of ourselves as very hospitable – a thing we learned from the portuguese people. Portuguese are very friendly and helpful of nature, and you will have a wonderful time spending your holidays here.
