Antonio and Margareta own the cottage which is situated in the garden of their house. When we arrived they were really helpful and showed us around the cottage and gave us a set of keys. They were very friendly and made us feel welcome straight way.
Once they had shown us around they left us to it, but reminded us that if we needed anything we could just ask. We felt like we had our own space but had help if needed. We spent most days out adventuring but even when we did have a day by the pool we barely saw them because they were out themselves so the garden did feel very private.
The cottage itself is small and simple but has everything you need and is good for anyone wanting a base to sleep at before driving off to look around Portugal or spending a day by the pool. There are lots of things to see within easy driving distance of the cottage. There is easy access to towns with supermarkets only a short drive away and there are some restaurants nearby. You need to hire a car because nothing is within walking distance.
The location is quite rural and pretty, you can see mountains in the distance from the garden.
There was the option of secure parking or parking outside the house. We parked outside for ease.
There was fresh bedding available and plenty of cups and plates to use. Plenty of spare towels to use and a good shower. The bed was comfy and it is a very quiet location, just sounds of crickets at night which was nice. There was a good wifi connection. The shower was good with plenty of hot water.
The pool was really nice and it was very private. There is a nice patio area which catches a lot of sun so you can do plenty of sunbathing.
We really enjoyed our stay, thank you! …
