This is a great family villa all on one floor, 3 good sized bedrooms, a large kitchen with a big dishwasher and a washing machine but no kettle or toaster. Outside there is a shaded garden and patio with a table and chairs, a path leads through a lockable door (child friendly) to a huge garden with a good sized pool and sun bathing area with another table, chairs and lilos there is also a shower and toilet near the pool. The village has 2 cafe bars 2 small supermarkets and a pharmacy, a 10 minute drive takes you to the coast with lots of restraunts and snack bars. You will need a car if you stay here and there is secure off street parking. Correspondence with the owner was easy and trouble free as was dealing with owners direct, a local comes on Saturday to tidy up the gardens and maintain the pool, while we were there a lot of flying insects seemed to land in the pool but there was no access to a net to clean the pool yourself may be a net left near the pool would be useful. So to sum up do not hesitate and book this villa if you want to stay in a quieter part of Portugal near a small village with friendly, helpful locals close to the sea and some good seafood resteraunts.
This was a very well equipped and comfortable apartment in a location that couldn't be beaten! Minutes from bars, restaurants and a beautiful beach and within easy driving distances to lovely, interesting towns and villages.
Porto is easily reached in a couple of hours and other towns of interest that we visited included Batlaha, Fatima and Alcobaca.
There is an open air market along the beach front where the local fishing boats' catches are landed and sold within minutes - well worth the spectacle!
We would be very happy to return to this property and this part of Portugal again at some point.
