About Hazel

My husband Adam and I are originally from Edinburgh in Scotland. We moved here to Portugal in 2008. We love this central part of Portugal and it reminds us very much of the highlands in Scotland only with sunshine.

Adam works with a Portuguese builder and is fluent in the language. I speak the language too but not as well as Adam. We love to spend time with our Portuguese friends and feel that we have integrated into life here in Portugal.

We love to go back to Edinburgh to visit friends and family but must admit we are spoilt with where we live and don't tend to travel further afield.

I love doing yoga and taking long walks. This area is perfect for walking as there are many mountain tracks with stunning views

Hazel purchased this cottage in 2010

A peaceful cosy cottage with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Cosy cottage but equipped with all you need. Owners were lovely & couldn’t be more accommodating. We had a wonderfully peaceful stay which is just what we needed.

a wonderful cottage if you want scenery, solitude if you want, and a very relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

The cottage offered everything we wished for on holiday, Magnificent scenery from the cottage, walking on the doorstep, we had planned so much for our first visit to the area, but mostly we did some wonderful walks from the cottage, come back for lunch by the pool and then relax in the afternoon, before going out to one of the many restaurants within the area. Hazel had provided everything in the cottage that you will require for a self catering break, and is available if you ever need it. A wonderful holiday had by both of us and certainly one to consider again

Sem dúvida o melhor sítio em que estive em Portugal, quer em termos de localização, quer em termos de serviço. Parabéns Hazel e Adam, pelo local, pelo bom gosto e pelos detalhes do vosso serviço.

Voltaremos em breve.

Fantastic views, great area and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at Hazels and Adams small cottage in the beautiful village of Alqueve.

The house is well equipped and as Hazel honestly writes; it is small. But perfect for two people. We stayed there with our boy of seven and that was just fine too.

The views are fantastic and the area is great. You can relax by the pool, go swimming in one of the many beautiful rivers or go sight seeing. We especially enjoyed the many castles and the city of Coimbra - go see the university. It is beautiful.

Hazel and Adam were so very kind and helpful - and invited us to join them in the local village for sardine fiesta. It was great and everyone there so very kind.

Not many people speak English - for example at the supermarket. But we found it not to be a problem, becuase everyone is very helpful. So we spoke Danish, and it worked just fine :-)

Our warmest recommendations for this place.
