However on arrival it turned out to be even better than it looks. A beautiful converted farmhouse with masses of outside space and a beautifully clean pool. There is every thing you could possibly need equipment wise and enough towels to supply the whole village :o) Graham & Bernadette made us very welcome and although we did not see much of them as they made sure that we had our privacy. We left feeling that we had made some new friends. On our next visit to Portugal we will definitely be booking this property.

The people renting this villa are really nice, and after collecting the keys the villa is totally private. The villa inside was comfortable, with new furniture, it was also clean and fresh with modern decor. The Outside of the villa had a nice sized pool, with nice views of the sounding area and the sea. There was plenty of places to relax outside including a 1st floor sun terrace. Although the villa is near to the town, I would say a car is a must, it's up a small hill and walking it would be too tiring. It was the perfect place for our holiday requirements.

The nearby beaches are some of the most stunning (and quietest) that we've ever encountered, not to mention the incredible weather. We had a fantastic week and would thoroughly recommend it
