We stayed with Joost & Stael for 5 days and we had the chalet all for ourselves. Joost & Stael are extremely friendly and helpful in every way. The chalet was beautifully done and very cosy. We basically loved everything about it. The location is also great. It's only 5 minutes walk to the Quadrado and right behind the house you have the cheaper Trancoso where the locals shop and eat. Abundant supermarkets and the weekly market are all at a few minutes walking distance. Good local eateries where you can get good value food. Ask Joost & Stael for tips.
If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere in Trancoso for a good price this is where you need to be. Thank you guys for the memoable stay in your slice of heaven.
I never normally write reviews but as I had such a great experience staying here I thought i should share. There are hundreds of accommodation options in trancoso but most of them will treat you like a number, so if you want a private space on a budget, where you are treated as a individual choose here. My original plan was to stay in trancoso for 3 nights, but it ended up being 10 days as this was mainly because of Joost and Stael. With their own hands they have built a delightful house and chalet, it has a earthly feel that instantly made me comfortable, relaxed and at home. I stayed in the newly built chalet, so I had my own space, kitchen, living room, bathroom etc. the chalet has been designed well, and I just loved how light and airy they had made it feel, every where was excellently cleaned and kept to a high standard. Staying in the chalet meant I had my own private space, and could relax in the lovely garden which has a number of hammocks to chose from. Joost and Stael were wonderful, a relaxed couple who spoke excellent English and Dutch, they went out of their way to make sure I had an excellent stay.
Whilst the house is not in the main square, the location proved excellent for the beach and was only 5 min walk to square so for me who was on a budget this proved better. The advantage of the location is that I had access to restaurants and shops that are substantially cheaper than in the square.
