New building on the beach very charming only 4 floors. This area is a protected area (natural park) very restrict on building.

Very special small village with bueitful sunsets!!!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen! This place is very scenic with magical views. We could not believe that places like this exist. So relaxing it seams like time stopped while I we were there The fish and the sea food are always fresh daily and the walks on the cliffs are fantastic with numerous remote beaches.

The apt is great even has A/C or HEAT (I've visited this area before and it's A/C is very rare in this part of Portugal), and the Sun Roof overlooking the beach is just amazing, some days we just stayed there all day.

Susana was super helpful with all the tips she gave us.

I love this place…want to go back...

Truly a Jem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 night the end of May and I can truly say that this has been one of the most relaxing vacation we had in years. The apartment was excellent to say the least. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you needed to make your home cooked meals. It also had ample amount of linen. The roof top terrace was an added bonus. We had all our meals there and enjoyed every night gazing at the star filled sky while listening to the waves until the wee hours of the morning. It was the most relaxing vacation we had in years. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax or and get away from it all.

Wondeful roof terrace, ideally located for beaches and village

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in this apartment, ideally located with wonderful views of the main beach and only about 10 minutes walk over the hill to Altereinhos beach, whilst being close to the restaurants and bars. The apartment provided all we needed with the facilities being as described and the photos doing the apartment justice. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and hope to return some day.

Small, no view from the flat itself

  • 1 of 5

Really small and not so comfortable. We did not have good weather so spending time inside is not so good, the TV is only 12 inches in size, no wifi, the dining table is plastic and wobbles badly. If it is just a place to sleep then it might be okay. The view is directly into other windows because the street is only 8 feet wide, there is graffiti on the building opposite, and dead window boxes to look at. The rooftop is nice but you have to open the front door and go upstairs through another door then around a corner to get there. At that time there was work being done int the street so was also very noisy during the day. We left after two nights to another place.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you had bad weather, is nothing I can do about it, I had people there in November and they made the best out of it, this is a place to go for long walks to eat good food drink good wine and enjoy nature if the weather is not good otherwise you go to the beach, if you are going to watch TV and be on the computer...maybe is not your kind of vacation. In 3 years that I rent the apt, I only had good reviews and I have people coming back... The people are not going to this paradise to watch TV. I had a big one that stop working and I put that one in a mean time (is not high season yet) I'm going in July and I fix that, and there WIFI if you had ask me how to connect it. The work on the street....I can not control that....you never had work on your street? About the view, I'm not saying that you have direct view from the apt, you have it from the roof top and is an amazing view there is a day bed....normally when you go to a roof top you have to go up on a stairs....otherwise would not be a roof top, would be and apt with a terrace. Again I'm sorry that you did not what you expect, but next time if you don't have anything nice to say please don't say it.....I live in America like you, (I think you are from Canada), the things are different and bigger here, but that's the charm of Europe, because everything is very Typical and different. This is a old fishing charming village, and you expecting a 5 star hotel, you didn't even call to let us to let's us know when you were going to arrive, like I ask you to do so, like there is a front desk....or someone would be waiting there for you the all day. I hope you have better experiences where ever you go in the world. Best regards, Susana
