Studying in Lisbon since 2006, we're a group of students from Elvas, which is a city with 20.000 people in the portuguese region of Alentejo. After our graduation we just came up with a project:
The idea started by looking for a great apartment in an amazing location. And guess what? We've found it... The final ingredient was just to have a nice environment... (We also did it). That's why we did some work on the choosed apartment and now it is completely renewed.
At 10th November 2011 it was the beggining of the house now called as "C.I.A." (Casa Internacional Alentejo), name given by one of our international flatmates.
We started renting 4 bedrooms and since then we already had people from: Poland, Italy, Sweeden, Spain, USA, Venezuela, Check Republic, Germany, France, Hungary, Turkey, Vietnam, Portugal and many more countries.
