Within its 2,000 hectares is a dense diversity of flora and fauna, including over 400 plant species and 150 species of birds. Birdwatchers can expect to spot flamingos, sandpipers and different kinds of storks wandering about. While here visitors will get the chance to see salt being harvested in the traditional way from the salt marshes.

Apart from local artists, many performers come from across the world to participate in musicals, dances and a host of other events. Revellers can also leave with some unique items as blacksmiths, weavers and herb sellers all come with their wares.

Bedrooms & bathrooms had plenty of space and living areas are well equipped & plenty of room for all. Pool was a big hit with the kids (wetsuits required in October really but they loved it regardless). 15 minute walk to a lovely beach. Local bakery/mini market/cafe has everything we needed for the week except 3 trips to the butchers. Nice walk through the pine forest or along beach (or <€10 taxi) to Monte Gordo for large choice of restaurants & snack bars. If the kids were bigger, renting bikes for all would have given us a wider range, access to train station etc but everything we needed for a week in the sun was close by without needing to rent a car. Villa manager was lovely & very helpful about what to do & how to get about.

That is exactly what this villa gave us! We were there for 2 weeks from the beginning of September. The weather was brilliant. Everything about this Villa was amazing even the location. The local amenities are no more than 5/10 minutes drive away and the beach is about the same. From start to finish, this holiday was everything we needed and we didn't want it to end! We will certainly be coming back. :-)
