Manta Rota is a quiet village but has an eclectic mix of places to eat and enjoy coffee or drinks. The owner Graham provided great insight into the area prior to our visit which was extremely useful. The beaches are fantastic and there is a lot of history to be discovered. Nearby larger towns and within striking distance for which we used the recommended local taxi driver Nuno, again his local knowledge was most welcome. The townhouse is equipped with everything one could wish for and has three sun terraces which we loved. Kate the keyholder was always on hand in case of any difficulties and was extremely helpful. All in all, a fantastic holiday and a property that I would highly recommend. Thankyou, Graham, Kate and Nuno.

                                                                                                      What an amazing place. Driving up to it for the first time I was blown away by the size. The photos really don't prepare you for the palacial rooms, the large garden, or the large swimming pool, which is deep enough for diving (unlike many villas I've stayed at) . Everything was very well kitted out and clean. The kitchen particualry impressed, with good quality equipment and an excellent Utensils, crockery and cutlery, they were abundant and of better quality than one normally sees in holiday villas. Furniture all felt new and comfortable. Sleep was surprisingly easy in the heat of the summer. Best bit though has to be the pool area in garden, Looking out over the sea and countryside view was amazing. With a BBQ house, furniture and shade around it we quite happily spent half the holiday loafing around it. Getting to and from is a doddle, less than 5 minutes to the nearest restraunt - and with a lovely little village coffee shop meters away. Basically, loved the place to pieces. One of the best holidays I've ever had, and felt like a duke for the duration.
