Vouga (3).png


We are Tijmen and Chantal. Our roots are in the Netherlands, where we grew up, found love for each other in high school, lived the lessons of life, have our two wonderful children "Everly and Joe" and experienced joy and sorrow. At the end of May 2022 we decided to live our dream and we moved to Portugal - Alombada to live in our new love " Casa do Cabeco. Vouga retreats is the umbrella name for the 2 accommodations that we host with great love. 




Casa do Cabeço

Is our own house in which we rent out two spacious private rooms. In the near future, a central square with swimming pool and a barbeque area and a playground will be completed.


Casa Sulo 

Is located next to us. We are managing a pair of apartments with swimming pool for our dear neighbors Ken and Sue, who are enjoying their retirement after 20 years as hosts and owners of the property.


 Each sleeps 4 - 5 in 2 en-suite bedrooms & a sofa bed. Open the inter-connecting door and larger parties can enjoy a spacious 4-bedroom private villa.  An idyllic location, at the end of a small safe rural village. With undisturbed views across the mountains full of fragrant eucalyptus trees.
