We had a car and parked very nearby. we went on lots of trips , the mountains,sea and countryside are worth the visit. Alte is a very interesting place , with a lovely buzz to it.

Villa layout and decor is fabulous, we loved all of the design layout and furniture. It worked incredibly well with a large group. The pool was heated and our 4 & 5 year old pretty much lived in it! Lovely area to sit outside and have dinner in the evenings although we wandered to the old village a few times which we would also recommend. Filipe the owner was an absolute asset. Filipe always responded within 1-2 hours and went out of his way to help us. Would totally recommend Aqua-park also which is around 12 euros in a taxi from the villa. Our children were not old enough to go on many of the individual slides but there were three big pools with a wave machine and tons of smaller slides / splash zones which they loved! Thank you Filipe for all your help, it really is refreshing to have a villa owner who genuinely cares that you have a good holiday and will help to make everything as easy as possible.
