I was tipped off by a business colleague of mine who told me that his friend was going to make this available for private rentals - we were the first clients The house is centrally heated and was nice and cosy and we were lucky with the weather - sunny days around 16 degrees and cool nights around 4-6 The house is better than the pictures - it's not 400m2 - I'm a retired architect - it's more like around 800m2 - it's huge you do actually literally open the back garden gate and your first footstep is on the sand of the beach - the beach is long, wide and very very clean Nearby - literally 3 minutes walk, but far enough away from the house are a selection of beach cafes Further on there are restaurants, bakery and a well stocked grocers store We did a lovely coastal walk for 20 minutes and came to Apulia - my goodness the fish restaurants there were superb and such good value. We are organising a return trip for summer and can highly recommend the place - Antonio the owner checked us in - very nice man and his English was actually very good indeed :-) Bring a jumper at night in the low season - it can be chilly at night

The flat is spacious and very tastefully decorated with lovely Portuguese tiles and artefacts. It was spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The flat leads out into a large enclosed courtyard where we could eat meals and have an evening drink - here there are fountains playing and a formal garden with flowers. Then there is the walk up through orchards to the swimming pool, a delightful place where we spent much time swimming and reading (the pool is crystal clear springwater)surrounded by cypress and magnolia trees, with stunning views of the valley beyond the house. The owners Piers and Kate were extremely helpful when it came to information about local visits, markets, beaches etc. This is as enchanting place, peaceful and relaxing and also full of character. We would recommend it as an out-of-the-ordinary holiday, and plan to visit again soon.
