Knowing the area well helps so do your research before coming over. Quality of accommodation is first class and really well equipped villa. Super comfy beds and quality showers and a pool to cool off in. Both Bom Sucesso and Royal Obidos courses are on your door so its a golfers paradise. For a real treat, go to Nascer do Sol for Sunday lunch near Salir do Porto (25 mins drive), you wont get a better meal in the area and the atmosphere is the best. Four of us ate and drank all around us for €92. Highly Recommended but you must have a car. Andy Byrne - March 2017

Everything we could wish for had been anticipated..... welcome pack when we arrived, Debbie's 'bible' of where to go, where to eat and how to get there and fantastic facilities in the house. Internet is great and the log burner is brilliant and Debbie's personal attention to our stay was exceptional. Thank you - fantastic time in a beautiful place, we will be back.
