                                        This was one of my most enjoyable holidays ever! I had never been to Portugal before, but now intend to learn the language in order to return to this most spacious and beautiful part of the world. This area of Portugal is awash with forests, amazing historic monuments and relics that takes the mind back easily to even pre historic times, nearly every little town or village has something worth seeing, marvellous to wake up with the birds singing.

                                        me and my partner stayed here for our first holiday with our 1 year old boy, the villa was very spacious and nice and clean. We didn't rent a car as we enjoy long walks but would recommend car hire to anyone who is not so keen on walking to get a coffee or lunch. We was given a contact number for a taxi driver and he was fantastic, he would come pick us up and took us to supermarket and waited for us to do our shopping before taking us home, and it wasn't expensive either. The property Owner Ana was our point of contact could not have been any more helpful, and we would recommend anyone wanting to stay in this area to contact Ana even if looking for a villa different to the one we stayed at. Overall very nice relaxing week away in a very nice place !
