Meet "Duke", an amazing dog who shares an 18th Century Portuguese farm house with two felines, Bolinhas and Monty.

This grand home is amongst 5 hectares of land and boast a majestic pool and guest rooms.

Matt and Sandra are a family of four who  moved to Portugal 5 years ago, after falling in love with this property.
They have been renovating the house and the grounds since, and have opened a part of the house as a guest house.

It certainly was a delight to care for Duke and provide peace of mind to the owners by ensuring the garden was adequately watered and the security  of the property maintained at all times during their absence.

What the Owners Have Said

We were very impressed with Anthony from the very 1st time we spoke!

Anthony contacted us with daily updates, sent wonderful photos of our pets which helped us feel more relaxed while away from home.

Excellent communication and a very polite and professional approach.

Matt and Sandra
