In october 2007 we bought a nice plot in the middle of Portugal. We started the construction of the B&B on the 15th of may 2008. Here you find the information about the progress of our B&B and house in Portuga. Regularly you can find an update on this page.

B&B Quinta Verde is finished!
We are very satisfied about the result. The communication with the laywer and the constructor was fantastic. They did a very good job to have our project ready even before the date that we agreed. At the moment we are also in Cabreiros to furnish the building and make everuthing prepared for our guests in june.

The painter is ready with his work inside the house and the carpentry is almost done. All the doors, door frames and built-in wardrobes are handmate by the carpenter and they look magnificent! The colour of the ceder is very beautiful. At the outside of the house they started to pave the access road and the spacious parkingplace in front of the house. In a month we'll move to Portugal, we're looking forwoard to establish our Bed and Breakfast! Bouw Bouw

In Portugal they are working very hard even during christmastime! The plastering on the outside of the building is finished, now the painters can come! The colour of the house will be white with yellow accents, like the old houses in Obidos. We like that very much.

Update 11-12-2008

Our Portugese constructor is about one month sooner finished than was planned, not half may but half april, so we have more time to make everything ready. At this moment they are making the pipes for gas, water and electricity and in the house the electrician makes the boxes. Also the preperation for the road has started so it can consolidate for 2 or 3 month and than they can pave the road. The weather is 2 or 3 days rainy and windy 7 - 8 degrees and than 2 or 3 days sunny and 15 degrees.

Update 23-08-2008

Welcome on the projectpage of the website of B&B Quinta Verde! They work very hard to built our Bed and Breakfast in Portugal at the moment. They finished the ceilings of the guestrooms and the garage. The way of building is different than in England. You can see that on the photos. After they shed the concrete, they leave it for one month so the concrete can dry. .
