A beautiful Villa in a great location - Perfect!

5 of 5
Pedro, the owner is wonderful! My daughter left her beloved toy dog behind and Pedro went to great lengths (and expense) to ensure that he was returned safe and sound to us in England. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa is gorgeous - immaculate throughout and extremely comfortable. My three children (aged 16, 16 and 10) and I were very happy there for the week. The pool has a cover, so was warm enough for the children to play in at ten o'clock at night, and their bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. My room in the attic did get very hot, but I slept with the little door open and it was no problem. Having my own little roof terrace to escape to was a luxury that I made the most of. The town itself is very friendly. The local shop sells fresh bread and pastries every morning, and the café at the end of the road does great coffee and cake too (he is also called Pedro, and is just as friendly.) There are also restaurants to choose from and a great place that does take-away spit roasted chicken (you can also choose to eat in if you prefer). When we return to Portugal, we will definitely be staying here again! I can't recommend it enough (it's a straight-forward drive into Lisbon from here, and we went in three times during our stay.)
