We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable appartment. We have four boys who spent most of their time in the swimming pool. The pool was the highlight of our stay and is a generous size, well equipped with inflatable boats and an inflatable goal for water sports. There is also a large garage space which the boys used as a play area, with bikes and a good assortment of sports equipment.
it did feel at times that the pool was quite cut off from the house with access to the pool, garden and patio areas only through the front door at the side of the house, but this is only a minor criticism. The pool house accessed by a short ladder had a fridge, stereo and coffee machine and there were plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas.
The appartment has a very traditional feel and although at times we felt it could do with some modernisation (the main reason we didn't rate it five stars), we appreciated its charm and originality. It was extremely spacious, comfortable, cool, well equipped and wifi was reliable.
The owner, Jorge Abreu, lives in the appartment above and was very attentive during our stay. Our check-in process was extremely thorough but accompanied by a generous supply of port and snacks. He gave us great advice on some excellent day trips, restaurants, shops and the best Portuguese wines to try. Jorge checked in with us every day and used the pool sparingly while we were there. He had a very well behaved dog called Joca who our boys enjoyed having around.
We were within easy walking distance of supermarkets, the town centre and the beach. Although the sea is a long way from the promenade, there are walkways to ease the journey and loads of space to spread out on the sea-front.
If you are looking for modern chic, then this is probably not the place for you, but we would wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone looking for a charming, comfortable place to stay with a fantastic pool.
