Kitchen is a little dated, but everything you need is there. The dining area and lounge are spacious. The pool area is really great. It just needs a bigger area to be able to eat outside in a larger group if you want to. The bedrooms are laid out so that two families could share the house having 2 bedrooms and a bathroom per family, the areas are separated by the living room. The pool area is south facing and gets the sun all day long. The field has some pigs in which the kids loved and even named them all (Bacon, Chorizo etc). The local area is really quite except for some yapping dogs. There is a little supermarket a few minutes stroll away and a restaraunt on the main rod, but we wen't down to Alvor in the evening where there are plenty of good bars and restaurants. A taxi back is only a few euros. Finally the couple next door acted as housekeepers and were really helpful.

We even had a lovely welcome of wine,water and milk!! Thank you so much we will definitely be back.
