O acolhimento do Sr. Luís e do Tomás não podia ter sido mais caloroso. Passámos uma semana óptima. Definitivamente um ‘até á vista’!

It’s situated in a really nice unspoilt part of Portugal with stunning beaches and no high rises anywhere! There are lots of local restaurants nearby; our favourite, O Paulo in Arrifana, is set high upon the cliffs where you can watch the sunset while enjoying freshly caught local fish and a glass of wine. Having read some previous reviewers’ comments, I have to say that everything was in perfect order by the time we visited; the pool was crystal clear; the poolside loungers were all new; the TV offered all the standard UK TV channels (there was even a good selection of DVDs). Certainly from our perspective, we found the villa to be very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We had a really enjoyable holiday and would love to come again!

The west coast is wild and very quiet out of season (which was just what we wanted!). This was a great place to come home to every night after our travels and walking trips.
