The house is beautifully decorated, ideal for a family of 4, the view is fantastic and the serene atmosphere was much appreciated. Tiago welcomed us with a basket of goodies and was very helpful during our stay. We definitely recommend this house. Thank you Tiago.

From the initial booking, I felt confident that the property would match initial descriptions and this proved to be the case. All instructions and recommendations from Lawrence, the owner, proved to be spot-on (even down to a particular dish in one of the local restaurants!). The house was extremely clean, very comfortable (particularly the beds) and tastefully furnished. Great book collection, too! This really is a very unique holiday house. The best thing about the property, however, has to be the exterior and the setting. There is an amazing view from every aspect; we had genuinely never seen such sunsets. Another bonus was the chance for starlight swims! The pool won our vote as best pool of the holiday (we stayed in three places) because of the diving pool and the depth. Our children are now teenagers, so safety is not the same issue, but we could see a safety fence available if needed. We didn't see much of the caretakers (everything worked like clockwork so we didn't need to) but they were friendly when we did see them and were obviously keeping an eye on the place. We have other commitments next year, otherwise we would have been considering returning to this lovely place. It would suit many types of groups as the living space is very flexible. Fantastic place - really can't recommend it enough.
