About us

We are Gust (36) and Mayke (33) and together with our sons Bob (3) and Sam (1) we have been living in Portugal for over 7 years with great pleasure.

In 2016/2017 we completely renovated the Quinta (farm) into five beautiful homes. We are happy to show the result to you with great pleasure and pride!

Together we run Quinta da Vida and will ensure that you can enjoy your holiday to the fullest. We are always nearby to provide you with great tips about the area, have a nice chat or if you need help.

Of course we also respect your privacy!


Our dogs Bim and Billy are part of our Quinta family and roam freely on the property. They are real people lovers and therefore like to come by for a hug and a pat.

They are very nice to children!

We also have a number of chickens that lay fresh eggs every day. You can take these from the coop yourself. The ladies also love all leftovers!

In 2016/2017 we completely renovated the Quinta. From an old dilapidated building to a beautifully renovated Quinta!

What all had to be done about it? Actually everything. Only the thick outer walls remain. Everything else is new. New sewerage, water pipes, electricity, air conditioning and underfloor heating. Furthermore, all roofs insulated and renewed, all walls plastered and repainted and many more.

Are you curious about what the rest of the renovation looked like?

We have summarized the renovation in a number of photos. Click on the link below.
