About pip francis
We are originally from Cornwall and settled in Sagres in 2007. It is a fantastic place. We live close to Sagres and are nearby if you need anything. We keep busy here looking after the cottage and the apartment, and spend our spare time surfing, walking and sailing on the many varied and fabulous beaches in the area. We enjoy meeting new people all the time and are here to welcome new arrivals. Happy holidays!
pip francis purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why pip francis chose Sagres
We bought this property for its fantastic location very close to the lovely Tonel Beach and also an easy level walk into Sagres town centre. We love Sagres, it is at the end of the world! The choice of beaches, great surf, the immense sea stretching away to the horizon on three sides, the stunningly beautiful Natural Park, dusty tracks, wild flowers, deserted sandy bays, far away from the crowds, year round ideal temperature, all made Sagres for us the number 1 choice.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to the beach! Put your beach bag, surfboard and sun-umbrella under your arm and simply stroll down to the beach for sand, sea, surf and sky.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
fantastic stay in Sagres
We had never visited Portugal before, but our stay last week in the Algarve was excellent. The weather at the end of October was mixed , but the sun did shine on us, and the family went into the warm sea every day.
The accommodation at Fisherman's Cottage in Sagres was first class--even better than the photos--the beds were comfortable, and having 2 shower rooms was a real bonus. The interior is unusual with it high sloping ceiling.
The beach at Tonel is spectacular--only 2 minutes walk away, and we took our tea there one evening, and watched a fantastic sunset. The other main beach in the town is also within easy walking distance. The fort was well worth the visit, and on Sunday mornings is free.
Pip and Heath were very helpful through the booking process, and always answered our email questions very quickly.
I would recommend this property. As it is a renovated cottage (and renovated to a very high standard), it is not part of a modern purpose built set of apartments --you feel you are in proper Portugal!
This cottage is to die for. The description of the accomodation is very accurate, with the build quality of this renovated traditional cottage going beyond expectation. All the rooms have been lovingly fitted out: from the two bathrooms which have the latest fixtures and flawless tiling, to the rustic but modern feel to the open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge.
The outside area is spacious but cosy and gives excellent sunlight. The BBQ is superb to cook perfect food. DVD selection was varied for all tastes. We all thought the beds were comfy and the linen was of a lovely standard.
The property was spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard. The kitchen is well laid out with a quiet and effective quality extractor fan for cooking . The house was very airy (Velux windows) and not a sign of dampness (This can make it a breeding ground for mosquitos).
Our 'customer satisfaction' has not been equalled elsewhere. The owners were friendly, accessible and on hand; they covered all our questions with sound knowledge of the local area and best places to eat out, buy local produce, surf, beaches etc.
I cannot praise this homely cottage highly enough and would thoroughly reccommend it to family and friends.
Restaurants we liked were D'Italia, Mums, and Bossa Nova all in Sagres and walkable from the cottage. Beaches we recommend are Tonel, (at the end of the road) and Beliche 1km west on the same road. We did not dislike anything and would very much like to return.
