This house is in a lovely village very close to the coast for walks and the beaches. The house is compact and very well designed and equipped with everything you would need for your holiday. The shower is fantastic - so important after a day at the beach! We felt very comfortable staying there. The only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars is that there is not a proper sofa in the living area - it is a bed pushed against the wall with cushions. Not very comfortable to sit on of an evening. Mind you if you were there in the summer you would spend your evenings on the terrace looking over the rolling hills -the view from your bedroom which is lovely to wake up to.
The house itself is tucked away from the Main Street and is very quiet. You have to walk a few minutes down little winding paths and the last few feet are quite steep so not so good if you have mobility issues. It was not a problem to us as we loved the fact it was tucked away and even with bikes, boards and cases it was not an issue for us and we’re the wrong side of 50!
I would say this is the perfect location if you like exploring as you are perfectly located for the west and south coast of the Algarve.
The cottage is perfectly positioned to enjoy sunshine from its terraces and the lovely view of the valley. We loved being able to walk some great routes straight fromt eh door, not least the GR Rota Vicentina which passes the front door. I enjoyed greeting the occasional walker passing along this long-distance route to Sagres. It's a also a brilliant place for mountain biking, and you can hire bikes from the restaurant just down the road. This restaurant is so handy, and you can even take breakfast there. The cottage is very well equipped, and has two excellent showers with plenty of hot water. The only downside was a rather hard bed in the main bedroom. A magical place to stay, and somewhere we'd love to visit again.
