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 !

The house was very clean and organized. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals. There were lots of extra blankets and towels for us to use as well. This Villa is not far from town where there are several grocery stores. The property that the villa was on was also very nice with fruit trees and vegetables. Ana the owner was also amazibg. She answered every email inquiry we had in a very timely manner and always made sure if there was anything we needed she would get for us. She also would send emails to check in to make sure we were comfortable or if needed anything. When we go to Portugal again this definitely will be the place we will be staying at. It felt like a home away from home and I would highly recommend for other to stay there as well.
