Manta Rota is a quiet village but has an eclectic mix of places to eat and enjoy coffee or drinks. The owner Graham provided great insight into the area prior to our visit which was extremely useful. The beaches are fantastic and there is a lot of history to be discovered. Nearby larger towns and within striking distance for which we used the recommended local taxi driver Nuno, again his local knowledge was most welcome. The townhouse is equipped with everything one could wish for and has three sun terraces which we loved. Kate the keyholder was always on hand in case of any difficulties and was extremely helpful. All in all, a fantastic holiday and a property that I would highly recommend. Thankyou, Graham, Kate and Nuno.
