Its a 5 or so minute walk to the shops, bars and beach, bus stop for Sintra about 3 mins away. Pool and house facilities are first class, pool table, table tennis, PS2, SMART TV etc. Surfing beaches nearby are very good and easily accessible. Some work needs to be done on the house electrical supply as it tripped a couple of times when we were there, it only takes 2 seconds to reinstate it but its a little annoying. It seemed to coincide when the dishwasher was on, I mentioned it to Carlos and he is looking into it. Anyhow its a minor issue. The whole area is very beautiful and its also a slow pace of life is there which should be preserved, everyone very friendly. We will be back! The Nicol`s, a party of 8 stayed for 10 days and loved it.
