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.

Stylish decoration, enclosed garden and pet friendly. If you are a light sleeper the noise of neighbouring chickens and dogs with their dawn chorus might be annoying. On the bright side there's no traffic noise. We had a small problem with the electricity tripping out because the heating was in use, unfortunately resulting in a sliced thumb as the lights went out during dinner preparation, but overall a very comfortable stay, in tasteful surroundings and easy access to everything we wanted to visit. Luis was very friendly and accommodating and we would have no hesitation in recommending the place. We very much look forward to returning.
