In the case of property ID 478277, the pictures of the accommodation do not quite serve justice. The Villa was far more than we expected. The the home was absolutely magnificent. Beautifully maintained, cleaned and furnished. All the equipment was modern and worked well. Stunning patio with swimming pool, protected from the wind. The Home is in the Village of Atalaia on the outskirts of Lourinhã, and was simply a breath of fresh air. The local people, not may of whom spoke English, where very warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The local beach a few hundred meters from the Villa was sensational. Not a long drive away north up the coast we found more beautiful beaches, Pubs and Restaurants. The most interesting part of our stay was to find how cheap the local prices were for Wine, Beer and of course food. A really good bottle of White wine from the Grocer was Euro 1.50. Mind boggling. We loved every minute our visit and will certainly pass this information on to all our friends in South Africa.
