We had a wonderful week here as a family (7 adults and a toddler) to celebrate a 60th birthday. The house exceeded expectations - it really is Ana’s home and she has thought of everything. There are lots of lovely spots for some alone time, perfect areas for indoors and al fresco meal times and the most stunning views from the terrace and the pool. The beds were very comfortable with beautiful bed linen and the black out shutters meant our little one slept in until 8.30am every morning which was bliss!!
The place is not child proofed so I was glad we had several eyes to watch our adventurous little boy, but that’s not to say that it’s not suitable for children and Ana provided all we needed in terms of a cot, high chair and toys.
We had a beautiful meal cooked for us by Ana Emilia and enjoyed several trips to local beaches.
A wonderful place where we hope to return one day.
This is a huge and really lovely appartment. We travelled with a sulky teen and an energetic 7 year old and there was enough space to keep them separate when necessary and also enjoy a bit of peace. We went out of season (last week in May) and the place is dead. I don’t think it gets busy at the best of times (a handful of places to eat) but that means we had the stunning beach to ourselves and we couldn’t have asked for more peace and quiet. The flat gets cleaned every couple of days, you will find essential toiletries there, and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need.
Except (unfortunately there is always an exception) for the decorating work taking place in a flat very close to ours between 7.30 and 9 in the morning, 2 our of the 5 days we stayed. I accept this was an unfortunate coincidence, but did it really have to be that early?...
A piece of advice: make sure you do your homework. We didn’t, and at 2am, after a hugely delayed flight and with nobody around town, it was tricky to find the place. The reception is not where the flat is, although close, so it can get very confusing. Also, the ferry from Satubal, which if you’re travelling from Lisbon will save you a lot of journey time, stops overnight, so you have to take the long way down.
All in all, a beautiful place, offering great value, access to some gorgeous spots and all you can really ask for in a relaxing getaway.
