Yes, we did! We passed the much anticipated, on-site, white glove examination performed by an Alastair Sawday Inspector last fall.
Our two-page description (pages 90,91) in the recently released 2007 PORTUGAL Special Places to Stay* begins “A brilliant opportunity to live as a Lisboeta in a real Portuguese neighbourhood. You are free of tourists…” and includes other kind comments such as my favorite: “Bed linens and towels are immaculate.” 🙂
We are honored to have been accepted into the worldwide “Special Places” family and wish to thank all our guests, once again, for staying with us… and for recommending us to their friends and family. Muito obrigado!
*Alastair Sawday’s “Special Places to Stay” From their “Who are We” introduction: The notion of ‘special’ is at the heart of what we do, and highly subjective… We take huge pleasure from finding people and places that do their own thing — brilliantly; places that are unusual and follow no trends; places of peace and beauty; people who are kind and interesting – and genuine.
