                                                                                      I have to declare that the owner, Adria, is a friend. However, this is an honest review based on a stay in September 2010 with my extended family and a revisit to the property in June this year (2017). I totally endorse the two reviews by Gillian A and Egon A. It's an ideal house for a large family or two families holidaying together and is both suitable and safe for all age groups. The pool is heated naturally and reaches a perfect temperature during the hot summer months. The farmhouse has been tastefully and sympathetically converted, retaining all its Portuguese character, but with all mod cons. In the intervening years between my two visits the property has been excellently maintained and improved. I have no hesitation in tecommending this holiday home but you will need a car to get to all the interesting places and lovely beaches in the region.

The cottage sits in a secluded part of Ellens garden with spectacular views over Covas and the surrounding area. The cottage is well fitted out with everything you need for a self catering holiday although the restaurant's all serve up delicious food and inexpensive. Ellen has gone to a lot of trouble in identifying all the good spots to visit but you don't have to go to far to find your piece of paradise. The area, people ,food and wine makes your stay special and a must to consider time and time again. Ellen is a wonderful host and is always there to help if needed and of course Rafa the dog always their to greet you when you return home, making sure you are comfortable in the cottage before disappearing till the next time. Everything you need for a vacation, well done Ellen for letting us share your piece of Paradise
