The house was well equipped and so cool even when it was 30 C outside. Mornings were spent having breakfast at the front in the sun - evenings looking over the pool and still in the sun. It was so quiet and relaxing - so easy just to relax and drift away. Location-wise it was 10-30 minutes from all the best beaches: Monte Clerigo & Arrifana (10 min) - Vale Des Homens and Amoreira (20 min) - Odeceixe and Amado (30 min) and our favourite Bordeira (30 min) A supermarket is a 2min walk away so super convenient. And a big thank you to the manager who so kindly leant her hat to my wife stopping her migraines.

If our sat nav hadn't kept changing the house's coordinates (who knew it could do that?), we wouldn't have got lost. Better to pinpoint the coordinates on google maps, we found. Pascale was quick to reply to emails and Patricia, the housekeeper, was great. Some good walks are possible to do from the house, you'll need to use the car to explore more.
