We have just spent a fabulous week in the peace and quiet of this lovely property. It is extremely well equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay and is enclosed in its own grounds with electric gates.
It is set in a rural location with beautiful views over the countryside and is completely private yet not isolated as the property owners live only a short distance away.
It was very warm during our stay so we made good use of the lovely pool to keep us cool during the day and the ceiling fans kept us cool at night.
The village of Sao Domingos is only five minutes away and has a small supermarket where you can buy most of the essentials. There are also three large supermarkets in Santiago do Cacem which is an easy 20 minute car ride away. All the roads in the area we found to be in excellent condition and have very little traffic.
The cottage is equipped with two good quality bicycles which we made use of most mornings, cycling either into the village or using the trails which go directly from the gates and extend for miles into the unspoilt countryside - it was a real bonus!
The coast is only a 30 minute drive away where you can find glorious beaches which are untouched by tourism. We particularly liked the small seaside town of Porto Covo which had a few gift shops and restaurants and was about as touristy as it got.
This is an immaculate property, spotlessly clean, fully equipped to a high standard, with welcoming owners and we would highly recommend it.
Thank you Sue & Patrick for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage..
We had a great week in late July with an extended family group with ages ranging from 75 to 7 years old. It was perfect for everyone and a great place to get away from it all with complete privacy. The property is wonderful, spacious, well equipped, beautifully decorated and exceptionally well maintained. Cristina, the housekeeper looked after us brilliantly every day and I would definitely recommend taking up the option of having cooking a meal cooked. The fish we had was delicious.
The pool and surrounding area is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed using the BBQ, tennis court and playing table tennis all in such beautiful surroundings.
The property is in a good location as the coast and local towns were a short drive away and easy to get to, although our children were so happy they were very reluctant to leave the property at all during our visit.
We would really recommend this property and hope to come back next year!
