There were only two of us but would be perfect for small family or two couples. Everything was v clean and we received a warm welcome from Isabella even though we were late arriving due to late flight. Also conveniently we were able to stay in the property until 4 the last day as they had no one else booked. Much appreciated.it was extremely hot during our stay but air conditioning worked well. A bit awkward going up spiral staircase to first floor so not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties though one of the bedrooms and bathroom are downstairs. Lovely traditional seaside town unspoilt at the moment. I am sure we will return.

Joan was the perfect host with exactly the right amount of chat and discretion, delicious fresh orange juice, avocado mousse and real mayonnaise always available, and the option to enjoy 'Joans Bar'.As the week went on, a well timed Campari or two by the pool with Joan and her family of cats and dogs,meant I felt totally at home by the end of my stay, and would still be there now if not for other pesky guests wanting to stay there too. It was my first visit to Portugal and hopefully won't be the last. Thank you Joan. You are a legend.
