- IS THERE BROADBAND INTERNET?
Yes! We have the best available internet service in the area. It's still ADSL with 12mb/second. It's more than enough for regular use like email, internet browsing, social media and streaming services. Our WIFI router covers the whole house.

In the living room we have a bluetooth receiver so you can stream your music to our vintage stereo system adding more stage to your favourite sounds. For radio fans we have a Vintage Grundig Satellit 2000 receiver.
- WHAT'S IN THE KITCHEN?
We have a professional kitchen with an island. There is a wide 90cm oven, an induction cooking plate as well as one gas cooktop. American fridge with icemaker and cold, filtered water. Microwave oven, toaster, juicer, nespresso coffee machine and filtered coffee machine. All appliances and utensils are top of the line. Countertops are made of concrete but they are very fragile. This means you always have to use cutting board to prepare your meals.
- CAN I DO LAUNDRY?
You can, but you shouldn't. You should instead enjoy the beach, the heated pool and the local food. But if you still want to do laundry, you can use our laundry room. We have a washing machine and a drying machine. Both are Class A+ energy efficient. There is also plenty of room to air dry your towels and clothes.
- IS CASA DO PEGO ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY?
We really try to. And in the last year we have invested in solutions to save energy and the environment. All our appliances are Class A+ rated. We have a solar cover at the swimming pool that warms up the water during the day in a natural way and prevents the water from getting cold during the evening. We don't have air conditioning, but the the house is designed in such a way that you get a permanent breeze and air flow.
- IS THE POOL HEATED ALL YEAR ROUND?
No. The pool is closed in the winter. As it’s an outdoor pool, it would not be ecological and economically sustainable to keep the water warm during the colder months. It’s also not comfortable to leave the pool and feel the cold breeze on the rooftop.
- HOW FAR IS THE CLOSEST BEACH?
The closest beach is Praia do Pego (Pego beach). It’s just a 5 minute walk to our house, 2 minutes by bicycle or 1 minute by car. The sidewalk is large enough to go by bicycle or push a stroller or wheelchair. This is the easiest way, following the road that leads to the beach and Sal restaurant. Alternatively you can get to a deserted part of the beach by crossing the pinewoods and adventures through the dunes. We can teach you how.
The second closest beach is Carvalhal beach.
- ARE THERE BICYCLES AT CASA DO PEGO?
No. But we can get them for you. We work with a local girl that rents bicycles and delivers them to our house.
- WHAT ABOUT A PERSONAL CHEF?
Sure! We work with a local chef that really knows how to cook the best local products. He belongs to a family of fishermen and really knows about fish and seafood. He and his wife can cook wonderful meals for you. You just sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful local flavours and smells.
- WHERE IS THE NEAREST HOSPITAL OR DOCTOR?
Nearest hospital would be Hospital do Litoral Alentejano, located in Santiago do Cacém, about 40km drving south. Hospital de Setubal is about 50 minutes away driving north and in Lisbon you will find the biggest hospital like Santa Maria Hospital or São José Hospital, In Carvalhal town there is a private practice doctor.
- AND THE PHARMACY?
There is a small pharmacy in Carvalhal town, right on main street that sells all the basics. If you need something more specific, best is to go to Comporta or Grandola.
