Susana and Calhi (Retromovement House)
Caretakers since 2012

Susana and Calhi are Godfathers, Founders and Offical Partners Associates of Rota Vicentina since the beginning. They take care of the famous Vila Nova de Milfontes » Almograve trail section (also taking care of the northern part between Malhão and Vila Nova de Milfontes).

My name is Filipe Queimada, known as “Calhi”, surfing instructor since 1996, Technical Course of Agro-alimentary Industries at the Professional School of Paiã and Permaculture Design Course. My connection to Milfontes is old, there are family roots here and a long history of surfing these waters with friends. From a very early age, I was able to live the dream of surfing. Life offered me more than that. I built a farm where we live with our two children. Surfer, coach and fisherman, I am also committed to the environmental cause and pioneer in teaching surfing in Portugal.

My name is Susana Cascalheira and I graduated in Food Engineering and joined the world of wines in 2003. During my professional career, I worked in several projects in the Alentejo region, where I met “Calhi”. I have decorated and managed together with Filipe accommodation initiatives, whilst we have been raising our family and building friendships with guests and students. Partner in all my husband’s initiatives, I have contributed to a family, warm and professional environment in all the projects we have developed together.
