About Wilf Kruppa
We love the country, even though we are city folk, and once our children came along we knew we had to show them what country life is all about. And we succeeded! One is hooked on fishing thanks to the lake right by us and the other loves wildlife - insects, bugs, animals so he has found his ideal playground! We are not Portuguese but have lived here on and off for 20 years. We love the people, the country, the weather and the pace of life. It´s incredibly safe making it an ideal place to bring up children. We are a mixture ourselves, English- Italian brought up in South Africa and Irish-German brought up in Wales! It only seemed right to add yet another country and culture to our mixture...
Wilf Kruppa purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Wilf Kruppa chose Serra
We saw this property advertised and fell in love with it when we stayed for a weekend. We have always loved stone houses and thought there would be plenty around but actually Casa de Pedra is one of the few around. The garden is big enough to laze about in but also small enough to maintain as we don´t live here. All the trees we have planted belong to our two sons and they absolutely love staying at Casa de Pedra as do we!
What makes this Cottage unique
Whatever time of the year you go to Casa de Pedra there is always something to do. In the summer the lake is fabulous and much better than the rough, cold sea you find on the Atlantic coast and in winter there are plenty of country walks to go on. It is also incredibly still and peaceful so a real treat to recharge your batteries. But the best part for us is that it is still authentically Portuguese where time seems to have stood still. The kindness and friendliness of the people who live around this area is simply wonderful. A littel gem!
