Review #8833007 'Très bien'
'Maison ancienne remise au goût du jour. Beaucoup de personnalité. Près d'une bananeraie. Près de la plage (gros galets). Très calme. Totalement équipée. Endroit très reposant avec un côté balnéaire bien sympathique mais sans la folie de la ville ni les touristes. A proximité (vers la jetée), bons bars à mojito et caïpirinha (et ambiance jeune mais pouvant convenir à des 'vieux' comme nous). Bon restaurants à Paul do Mar (Sol e Mar) et Jardim do Mar (Tarmar).'
