Ruben and Ingeborg

Our double love story


We are Ingeborg and Ruben Koole .  We met 15 years ago and the spark quickly flew. We soon found out that we both wanted to live and work outside the Netherlands in the future.


Which “outside The Netherlands”  became a lot more concrete when Ruben’s well-traveled brother pointed us to Portugal and immediately lost our hearts to this beautiful country. After traveling through the whole country, our eye fell on the beautiful green calm interior of Portugal , where there is always something in bloom and where the country radiates such a wonderful peace.


Slowly our old one came dream  ever closer. Reuben, with his love for cooking  with regional products, for growing your own vegetables, and I with a love for guests,  nature, our two dogs and I love to decorate houses and organize everything in the background. An ideal combination to embark on an adventure abroad together.


We are not new to hospitality. Until 2016 we ran several restaurants in Almere together. Ruben as chef and I, Ingeborg, as hostess. Pampering guests with delicious delicacies and giving them a carefree evening was our goal. We also wanted to design this in a different way.  That deserved a dream place . And we found it in a Casa Amerela , an old converted farmhouse. Exactly in the right place and with enough possibilities to expand further.  So actually it has become not a double but a triple love. We, Portugal and our own dream place.
