Bruno was extremely helpful and friendly, telling us places we could visit and local amenities. Also always available in case we needed any help. The house itself was very comfortable, the bathroom having the best shower in the world! Also lots of basic supplies in the kitchen including hebs and spices making things simple for self caterers.

                                                                  4 of 5
                                                                  This is a stunning location. The apartment is simply beautiful (if fractionally tired) both inside and out and so well located. With a genuinely private, magnificent balcony and air-conditioned inside, it is a perfect retreat. The views immediately around are superlative. Sunrise and sunsets were magnificent during our time and the views of the stars at night are simply beyond measure, mind-blowing! The local region is perfect for pleasantly challenging walks, the best for us being circular 3 hour walks that we were guided to by Francisco Muñoz, our host. Local restaurants, all good, ranged from rustic to exquisite. Marvao and Ammaia provide the most wonderful historic backdrops. I promise that I do not exaggerate! Then there was the wild life, the griffon vultures being magnificent in nearby valleys. We were particularly delighted to be able to drive into Spain too. We did not use the pool which is positioned nearby, in excellent condition. The weather for us was just too cool for swimming at this slightly elevated location in the national park. The hosts are improving facilities constantly so this place can only get even better. Although the hosts offered a delivery service on request for breakfast and supper, we chose to buy our own provisions for breakfast from local supermarkets in Castelo de Vide or Portalegre. We ate out every evening but one. The apartment kitchen facility is limited to a fridge and microwave. Understandably, absolutely no Barbecues are possible in a high fire risk area. These small points cannot diminish any visit to such a staggeringly lovely place, truly a lifetime experience. Brilliant!
