The hospitality and friendliness of Carlos is outstanding.

The house is beautifully designed and furnished and equipped to the highest standards . A short walk to the village with a couple of lovely restaurants and bars. Also a short drive to a number of gorgeous beach. 45 minutes from Lisbon Airport, we will definitely be back!!

The pool which was under cover was warm and nice to use any time of day or night. It is close to a number of restaurants which were all good. within 50 meters of a cash machine. Close to the beach. Had a good stay.
