We loved relaxing sitting out on the new balcony overlooking the picture perfect location. The owner arranged our return taxi transfer from Lisbon Airport with a very reliable and friendly driver, who also assisted with the collection of our hire car. My husband enjoyed walking around the glorious countryside around, whilst the rest of our party found ample areas to relax and "chill out " around the villa. We all enjoyed the friendly service, good wholesome cooking and reasonable priced meals found at the Restaurant on top of the hill at Santa Helena. We all felt at home in Casa Bianca and thoroughly enjoyed our break. I would highly recommend this villa to friends and family.

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.
