About Tony Truss
Having had an affinity with Portugal for several decades, buying a property and living there, was very definitely at the top of our wish list. The idea of actually building a business there really evolved rather than forming part of some master plan. As I had worked as a Building contractor for many years specialising in the renovation, extension and refurbishment of houses and gardens, I was able to put these acquired skills and knowledge to good use when I bought the disused and run down former working farmhouse, that is now Apartamentos e jardims de Florenca. Of course working in a new country without knowledge of the language,working practices, different materials, planning and local council approvals etc, was to prove challenging, but nevertheless they were challenges to be overcome. All the renovation and remodelling works carried out on the property was by local tradesmen, who I have to say were a pleasure to work with. Staying with us here in Cumieira provides you with the opportunity to enjoy our apartments and gardens in comfort, but to also absorb the easy going nature of typical Portuguese rural village life.
Tony Truss purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Tony Truss chose Cumeeira
When we started to look for a property of our own in this part of Portugal, the one that we bought was the very first one that we downloaded from the internet and although we looked at a few more, it was very much a question of love at first site. We loved the feeling of space, the beautiful views and the simplistic way of live in this small village of 200 or so. Somehow we instantly knew that we had to buy this run down ramble-shack of a Farmhouse, as it offered so much potential and take up the challenge of restoring it into something that could also be shared with others.

We visited Coimbra and Cominbraga, both beautiful and worth seeing. The pool was really nice! Thank you for such a great holiday" Emma 12/08/2016 "Thank you for a wonderfully relaxed holiday. The garden, pool and apartment facilities have been great. We have explored locally -Fragas de Sao Simao, Castles at Pombal and Leiria, coast Sao Pedro de Moel and Coimbra. We have taken advantage of the '4 person train sharing scheme' Mid-week travel fron Pombal Train Station €25 return each. We therefore spent 2 days in Lisbon in our first week and 2 days in Porto for our second week.Two very different cities. We have eaten (many times) at the local Restaurant and quickly learnt to share meals as there was so much!! The manager knows his Port!! O Terrier do Lagar in Cabeça Redondo.We have enjoyed our time here very much and would like to thank Melissa and Rui for their help and welcome" Paul, Karen, Jennifer and Sophie.6/4.
