Where did we record this episode?

In room number 4 of this character rich family run B&B called Casa Das Mares in Baleal, Portugal.

They even have a 25 year old talking parrot in the lobby (which double as the family dining room).

We loved it! Call them up to book, they only have four rooms. And say hello to Humberto and the family for us.
