This place, and above all this project is definitely beyond compare, I hardly have words for it. The hosts Maria and Edo are the best ever and built up something really really beautiful in this tiny village. Small project, big signal to the world. The perfect example of simplicity is simply the best. You already come as a friend, you leave as a family member. You feel balance in yourself, you slow down, you remember that you are alive. Amazing food every day, connecting to nature and to the community. What else would you need?
A cool place to get your work/project done with inspiration and with great views. You can meet some fantastic people from all over the world. You can also go hiking and ride a bicycle. You can actually cross the border with Portugal, by following a mountain trail. And it’s close to Porto, which is another advantage.
Come for the nature, stay for the amazing people - starting with the founders themselves, Maria & Edo! They've managed to foster community spirit by sharing food and meals, trips and hikes, even hammocks and cats! They've brought back to life centuries-old stone houses and created spaces to work - both indoors and outdoors. Did I mention mushroom hunting, fresh bread delivered daily, the natural pool, the TED talks, or the nightly family dinners? Everyone needs to experience what Sende offers - tranquility, inspiration, even productivity!
I came to Sende based on the recommendations I found here. Other than that, I did not have any expectations and I just came for a month. When I arrived, it was love at first sight. I fell in love with Sende. This place is amazing for work, relax, focus, creativity and everything else you need. The best thing about Sende are the hosts - Maria and Edo. After a couple of days, it felt like visiting a family. On their website they say "we are not a hotel" this is true - because Sende is something much better. Sende is an experience. Experience of friendship, co-living, co-working, co-cooking, sharing and caring for each other, giving and receiving. Amazing people come here. You can be one of them. I will come back for sure. P.S. Sometimes you can "smell the countryside", there is no AC or TV in the rooms, so if you care about that, Sende is not for you. :D :D :D
