Where to start! We without question love this Hilltop Cottage (our 2nd visit this year!). Nestled on a hilltop just outside the quaint town of Moncarapacho with outstanding views. Joan, the owner and hostess with the absolute mostess is an total gem and the cherry on top of this spectacular property.
Joan's hospitality knows no bounds and she makes you feel very very welcome. Despite this being a self catering stay, Joan goes out of her way to give you lots of information prepare about the area and provides the most amazing welcome hamper, something she doesn't need/have to do, but goes the extra mile to ensure that her guests have the best start to their holiday. It's such a lovely personal touch. Thank you Joan.
The cottage has everything you need for outdoor and indoor living, seating areas, bbq, gas and charcoal (yes she even provides gas). Again self catering, so this is another personal touch.
The pool is the biggest I've seen and the outside area and garden are just lovely. Sit and relax in the Portuguese sun and just let the stress slip away. Chairs, sunbeds, in the shade out of the shade, lots of places to let the hours tick by. Joan is very knowledgeable about the local area and has left information in the cottage on places to go, where to eat etc etc. We were able to book a taxis as we wanted to go out and have a drink and not have the hassle of driving, again information in the information booklet. I would say a car is essential as there is so much to do and see (if you don't want to chill by the pool that is!). However using taxi's to and from the airport and while you are there is also possible.
The beach is about 3 miles away in Fuseta and Joan has kindly left cool bags, beach umbrella's in the cottage for your use.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough, we've booked to go back twice next year. I can honestly say we've never felt so relaxed on holiday before. I've told all my friends about this amazing little cottage, but only have securing my own bookings for 2019.

We stayed for 3 nights at the very end of September 2018. We had a very warm welcome and found the cottage very clean, well equipped and comfortable. It was a secluded and private "get away from it all" although not far from the real world by car. We fired up the "barbie" on the terrace each evening which was lovely. The highlight was the private pool and the spectacular views beyond - we will return :-)
