About Paula Hynynen / David Ferreira

Your hosts, David and Paula moved to Cherry Cottage in August 2015 to escape the busy city life in attempt to pursue a more honest, pure and self-sustainable organic lifestyle. David originating from both Australia and Portugal and Paula from Finland there were many steps on our way to Aldeia Fundeira. We have previously lived in Finland, Norway and the UK where David worked as a structural engineer and Paula in areas of art. Despite being relatively young, in our mid-thirties, we decided to give up on our career ambitions in favor of a simpler country life. This idea and dream had been at the back of our minds but the actual decision to leave everything behind was quite fast and impulsive though not having regretted it.

David and Paula share their love with nature and animals. We own a lovely female ball addicted Jack Russel called Moshi and five chickens with a personality and charisma of their own. David is road cycling fanatic enjoying his time best on the bike. David has experience racing in elite level cycling competitions and knows his way around the mountains which makes him an ideal companion on the road. Paula loves all things related to art and with an education in fashion design. She likes to discover the nature by hiking and running with Moshi and so she'll be happy to arrange local hikes for the guests. In addition to sport activities our perfect day consist of attending of our vegetable garden, cooking, playing with Moshi and enjoying the Portuguese sunny weather. With Cherry Cottage we want to share this peaceful way of living with others, an opportunity to step outside the city frame of mind and retreat into the relaxing country side.

Cherry Cottage is located in a tiny village called Aldeia Fundeira in Central Portugal. The B&B is situated in a valley belonging to the Lousã mountain range "Serra da Lousã". The base of the valley is at an altitude of 400m and the surrounding mountains range from 700m to 1500m. We are surrounded by rich woodland, rivers and streams hence our region is best enjoyed for its clean air and beautiful nature and activities involving around them. We specialize in the outdoors and promote activities such as road cycling, hiking, fishing, rock climbing and mountain biking. Central Portugal is known for its river beaches forming natural rock pools for cooling on sizzling summer days. A must visit also in this region are the magical schist villages build on mountain slopes where you can marvel amazing craftsmanship and feel the old world charm. These historic villages have been recovered honoring the old building techniques with schist stone. The villages have organized hiking paths and mountain bike trails around the area which in many cases can be also combined with a refreshing visit to a river beach to enjoy your holiday to the fullest.
