                                                                                            5 of 5

The house overlooks and is within walking distance of a good sized town with everything you may need. If you do decide to walk use the short footpath along what looks like the neighbours front. We loved the pool which was regularly cleaned. It's rather deep in the shallow end so use responsibly if you have young ones. There is a good shaded area by the barbecue a welcome retreat from the Algarve sun. Although there's no air-contioning we seemed to manage with the ceiling fans. Would I go there again? Most definitely.

This is a gem. Great communication from Tom in the lead up and a friendly welcome from Annabel the housekeeper. My two teenage kids said 'wow' as they entered every room and first saw the pool; that's high praise indeed.
