I would suggest some form of door between the living area and hallway. The BBQ was inaccessible due to plants and I would have preferred the pool to be heated. These suggestions are not complaints as overall we enjoyed a pleasant, comfortable stay and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful.

Excellent communication with owner Joao and manager Jorge who was very welcoming. Balcony enjoys the sun from midday to sunset and easy car parking on site. Highly recommended.
