The
Experience

Sonia’s special B&B is just five minutes from the wild Atlantic coast and an hour north of Lisbon. From Germany, via Spain, she’s made Portugal her home and transformed one of the few remaining old village houses into an easy-going, stylish place to stay. You walk in to fresh white walls, terracotta and patterned tiles, modern, vintage and antique pieces, candles, potted plants and happily informal flower arrangements. Steep stairs lead to small attractive bedrooms with super-comfortable beds; one room overlooks the garden, the other the quiet road. Guests share a good bathroom, an inviting sitting room with plenty of books and an open fire, and the burgeoning garden with its reed-filtered natural pool, veg patch, shady hammock and covered outdoor terrace – for breakfasts of local cheeses, eggs, jams and bread. Sonia loves to share her passions for cooking, gardening and local history; a qualified masseuse and a dog-lover too. If you’re missing yours you may take her bouncy Bernese Mountain Dog Bella for a walk. Some of the best surfing beaches in the world – Ericeira, Santa Cruz – are just down the road…

What a find.. A lovely home, a beautiful garden and Sonja made us feel very welcome and at home and gave us lots of information and help on where to go and what to do so that we had a wonderful time here. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed at Villa Kaete for a night as we made our way south to Lisbon on our Northern Spain/Portugal Honeymoon tour. The home and garden are both absolutely stunning, our bedroom cozy and beautifully decorated, but what really made our stay was Sonja's hospitality. Looking forward to coming back for a longer stay in the future!

Great place to be! I had a wonderful and relaxed time during my stay. Sonja is the most generous and caring host I have met in a long time. The place is quiet, close to the sea, the pool fantastic, very clean and not to forget her lovely dog Bella. Definately recommendable - I will visit Sonjas place again!

I felt at Sonia's warmly welcome from the moment I arrived there. Sonia is a fantastic woman and a great host. Villa Kaete is a wonderful home that shows it was all made with love. Bella, her dog is absolutely sweet. I really had fun playing with Bella in the fantastic garden which is full of colorful plants. Surely, I will come back. Thank You so much Sonia for these great holidays!

I was privileged enough to find Sonja's house and stay there for 2 nights this year. What a wonderful house and gardens and Sonja was the perfect host. Her dog Bella made it for me too, great character and fun to be around. The beaches nearby were exceptional, the walks along them breathtaking, the food in a class of its own, and she has done a great job in the garden too. Recommend highly!

David, London

Great place to spend a relaxing weekend or as the base to see the west coast of Portugal. The house is very cozy and has a lot of charm. The garden is a fantastic oasis. Sonja made me feel like at home. Will surely repeat if I go to Portugal again.

Mats, Stockholm

En Villa Käte, encontré un excelente lugar para descansar y relajarme. Todas las estancias de la casa están decoradas con un gusto exquisito. Mi habitación era muy confortable con magníficas vistas al precioso y cuidado jardín. Sonja es una gran anfitriona y superamable, me recomendó los lugares más atractivos para visitar en los alrededores. El desayuno muy apetecible. Estos días han sido una experiencia inolvidable, así que no dudo en volver.
