The owner kindly supplied bread, ham, cheese and fruit juice even though we had a large Lidl's opposite and a local market. A bit unfortunate that there was a busy viaduct right on the doorstep and a lot of road works going on, so not suitable if you have small children. But the area was pretty central with no shortage of restaurants and things to do. All in all a very pleasant short stay. Thank you, Diogo.
