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

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.

The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay, within easy reach of some beautiful beaches, our favourite being Odecixe which has towering cliffs, Atlantic rollers, and extensive golden sands. Juan, our host, was very welcoming, friendly, and informative.
