Casa Sumantra consists of a two-bedroom house and a self-contained studio. Both places are recently renovated, clean and charming in a quiet part of São Martinho das Amoreiras. From the windows and the patio, there is a lovely view of the rolling hills that characterise this area. It is a short walk to the nearby cafes and small shops, and a 10 min drive to Monte Sahaja.
The property sits on a lovely hill at the edge of the village, giving the sense of being in the countryside while still being conveniently located. Although there is a road nearby, the traffic is usually light. On some mornings the local shepherds bring sheep into the nearby field, creating a symphony of bells.
The studio is quiet and cozy with a fully equipped kitchenette and attached bathroom that is a perfect retreat for 1 or 2 people. It has been freshly painted and all the furniture is new, including a very comfortable medium-firm mattress. The unlimited wireless internet connection is very good with a steady download speed of around 10-12 MB per second, which is fast enough to watch live streaming.
The kitchenette includes a two-burner gas stove, hot water, espresso machine, small fridge, pots, plates, bowls, cutlery, and basics such as tea, coffee, oil, salt and some herbs and spices. The bathroom has a sink and shower with hot water from the gas heater. Bedding, towels and hand towels are supplied. For those staying a week or longer, I can arrange for you to have laundry done nearby.
Occasionally rooms are also available for rent in the two-bedroom house, which comes with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with bathtub, and cozy living room perfect for relaxing.
Feel free to be in touch with any questions.
