It was a pleasure to wake up to the views each morning. Nice villa, well equipped and the bed was not too bad either (we normally struggle with mattress comfort). There could of been a few cupboard basics provided in the kitchen such as salt, pepper, cooking oil, foil etc. But we were welcomed with wine, cheese and some lovely marmalade. There is a pool table room downstairs that is not mentioned, so that was a bonus. The owners are next door always on hand if you need them but they don't intrude other wise. They are a lovely family, very friendly and helpful, even the dog smiles when he has got used to you.
We spent 4 nights at Carlos's villa. We arrived late, but Carlos was very kind to organize a smooth check in for us despite us being behind the schedule. Carlos is very hospitable, he was in touch with us all the time throughout our stay in his villa and that made us feel very welcomed in his home. It was a bit hard to find the villa in the dark, so, perhaps, at least some indicative signs could help. When we managed to find the house, we were pleasantly surprised about its interior - everything is even better than it looks in the pictures. We had a good nights sleep and woke up with the sunrise to a dream - the villa is located on a hill, so you get an amazing view of the surrounding crop fields with a flock of cows and storks wandering around, lush orange trees next to the bungalow, crystal clear skies throughout the day and a pleasant breeze to cool you of during the heat. The villa is really lovely, every space is created thoughtfully and has many beautiful design details for you to feel at home. It is well equipped, there was no such thing we missed during our stay. Also the south west coast of Portugal is amazing, we started our trip just here and we can say that precisely this area of Portugal we enjoyed the most. Before our arrival Carlos sent us an email with a bunch of tips for local restaurants, shops, places to visit, etc., which were very helpful. We would like to thank Carlos very much for making our trip unforgettable! Highly recommended!
