The cottage is well equipped with everything you need - even the wi-if works remarkably well despite the remote location. The local area has many interesting towns and villages to visit with great roads (we were on a motorbike so important to us!) Mike and Maria are great hosts, just the right balance of helpful and unintrusive. Thanks for the lift to the local restaurant and for posting back the cable we left behind. Highly recommend this cottage especially if you are looking to get away from it all. Thanks, April and Ty

A beautiful house, simply and charmingly decorated with old Portuguese things, and comfortable beds. There is even a projector for watching DVDs, and the kitchen has every implement anyone might need to prepare a feast every night (which we did). The pool is enchanting - fed by the spring so very refreshing even on the hottest day - and the garden is a paradise of fruiting trees. We loved being able to eat fresh lemons and walnuts. There are plenty of games to keep the most energetic group happy too. We made full use of the chess and the badminton. Only two things occasionally threatened our tranquillity - the barking of a neighbour's dog, not incessant, thankfully, and the sound of the motorway over the horizon which we noticed on windless days. Overall, though, the sheer beauty of the place minimised these minor irritations. Plus Duarte, the owner, who visited a few times to check on the water in the pool, was kindness personified. He even provided an old guitar for our singer-songerwriter son to use, and then returned with a set of new strings for it. Thankyou again, Duarte!
