rural, remote and just what was required

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for ten days. Overall it was brilliant. A couple of niggles that irked on arrival, which were forgotten about by day 3, when it was decided it didn't matter. This is our family time and part of our time is having a family movie, the TV etc promised in the description was not present and even after an email to Ralph, no word was heard from him, it gave the impression he didn't really care... There were also no functioning electric fans, fortunately it did not get above 30 and we kept the house closed up to keep the temp down inside so we could sleep. (there is no air conditioning). In short great holiday, great place to stay if you don't mind dirt tracks, river beds and steep inclines, there is a wonderful little pool in the river at the bottom of the metaphorical "garden" which our boys enjoyed snorkling and trying to guddle for fish. dragon flys, pond skaters, even a little water snake enthused my little "Attenborough's! " Would we come back again, yes. TV is not required, but it would be nice to have the option for those times when the weather isn't perfect or when the kids are worn out , over "sunned" and need a re-settler. Please get the fan that was their repaired and maybe have another couple just in case. If it had been in the 34 plus temperature region it would have been intolerable for us who live with a normal temp of 13 - 18 degrees! :)

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for somewhere away from the bustle (and sometimes ugliness) of the coast, and certainly found it in Curral de Pedra. The tiny community of farms of which this property is a part nestles in a fold of a valley about three miles from the nearest paved road. Passing cars per day can be counted on the fingers of one hand. The quiet is extraordinary, and the darkness of the night unsullied by light pollution. A maze of tracks running back into the hills allows unrestricted access to the surrounding countryside. The house itself has been well renovated and provides very comfortable and simple accommodation, and the pool is a delight. There is a very efficient wood stove for cooler nights.

It is a hilly ride on gravel for 4 km.
