Owner's Response: Cara Maria Palma,

Fico muito grata pelo comentário que dedicou, quer em relação à casa, quer ao facto da Vila de Alcoutim ser um lugar especial para uns dias de férias, em que impera o sossego e a ampla possibilidade de disfrutar desta paisagem de serra à beira do Guadiana.
Tive um gosto imenso em recebê-los, constatar que regressaram e que pretendem voltar em breve. Espero que venham a disfrutar sempre de ótimas férias nesta casa e nesta Vila.
Voltem sempre e até breve.

Dans la maison, typique de la région, nous avons trouvé tout dont nous avions besoin pour un séjour de quelques jours: cuisine bien équipée, assez d'espace, jouets pour enfants. On se trouve au centre de la petite ville, à deux pas de la rivière et il y a un bar/resto tout près si l'on n'a pas envie de cuisiner. Propriétaire toujours disponible, région calme, mais avec beaucoup d'endroits à découvrir (château, rivière, villages, plages pas trop loin, l'Espagne à côté.
