The hamlet is lovely with great walks and there is easy access to Tavira. There is some traffic noise in the distance from the motorway but it's not intrusive and the house is so lovely that it's easy to convince yourself that it's the sound of the sea. This is an area of Portugal that we know well and love; Barril beach is still one of our favourite places in the world. But this villa made it a really special holiday. Thank you
