kevin gueraud 5 / 5

I stayed 1 month at Free Spirit House to work online and enjoy Cascais. It's a great place to recharge your batteries, learn to surf and if you work online like me you can con

entrate on your work in a big villa with a pool. Rita is super nice and accommodating. I recommend 100% and I hope to come back soon. Thank you for everything Rita❤️
