Surprisingly spacious with a great location

4 of 5
Beautiful area. Great local friendly people. The house is great for eating out there are around 7 restaurants on your doorstep. The pool is really good with a nice bbq. Local shop is 1 min walk away with a great butchers and fishmonger 5 min walk away. The beach is close by and is massive! Great waves! First time in Portugal and loved it. Lisbon is also close by for a day out.
