A beautiful house, simply and charmingly decorated with old Portuguese things, and comfortable beds. There is even a projector for watching DVDs, and the kitchen has every implement anyone might need to prepare a feast every night (which we did). The pool is enchanting - fed by the spring so very refreshing even on the hottest day - and the garden is a paradise of fruiting trees. We loved being able to eat fresh lemons and walnuts. There are plenty of games to keep the most energetic group happy too. We made full use of the chess and the badminton. Only two things occasionally threatened our tranquillity - the barking of a neighbour's dog, not incessant, thankfully, and the sound of the motorway over the horizon which we noticed on windless days. Overall, though, the sheer beauty of the place minimised these minor irritations. Plus Duarte, the owner, who visited a few times to check on the water in the pool, was kindness personified. He even provided an old guitar for our singer-songerwriter son to use, and then returned with a set of new strings for it. Thankyou again, Duarte!

Lovely large open plan living area and 3 good size bedrooms ( very comfortable beds) The house is set in a lovely size plot with nice views of the surrounding hills and valley. The biggest downside for us was the proximity to a large road, which meant traffic noise could be heard all the time from all outside areas- we did find this disappointing as we have to endure this at home- so really appreciate a quiet location for holidays........The pool was also much colder than I imagined it would be- We knew it would be cooler than previous holidays in Southern Europe- but we weren't expecting it to be that cold!! There was lots of outdoor furniture and a really well stocked kitchen with plenty of crockery and cutlery. We enjoyed Ponte di Lima and spent a few nice days on Afife beach.
