Luxurious touches such as a rainfall shower, a cosy corner for reading, and a beautiful modern kitchen area make it a great place to stay.
It's perfectly located in the centre of Vila do Bispo, where you'll find a small supermarket for groceries, a couple of banks with ATM, and plenty of places to eat out. The closest beaches are Cordoama, Castelejo and Barriga at a few min drive from the house.
The cottage is close to the local farmers market, shops, bars and restaurants so you don't need to go far for your daily fresh bread, fruit or to go out for a meal.
The cottage was completely refurbished in 2014 and plenty of accommodation, Curling up with a book in the sitting room, is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing in the seating area.

Interaction with Guests
We are at hand if you need us.
Our property is always ready for visitors. We like to keep it clean and uncluttered, such as you would expect in a good hotel space. But it is not a hotel - it is a home we like to share with you if you stay.
Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It's set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course.
When to come
The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.
If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.
Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.
You will find everything you need in the village but you will need a car if you want to explore the area.
