Superb fixtures and fittings with everything you need for a break away. The villa is spacious cool and airy. We especially loved the pool and BBQ area. We found lots of supermarkets, restaurants and bars in the surrounding towns of Monte Gordo and Vila Real which catered to our every need. Peter (the owner) was so very helpful answering all the questions we had. Thank you! We hope to return in the future to this wonderful villa in a lovely area of Portugal.
