Mary and Alan St. George.s house has a fabulous view and wonderful location. The rooms are comfortable and very well equipped. There is a communal kitchen, again very well equipped, a comfortable lounge, a great terrace and huge garden in which to wander or just lounge. The swimming pool, right up at the top of the property, is like an infinity pool...round and, at the right angle, all you can see is the sea beyond. Fabulous. The nearby village, Almocageme, is an unspoiled, non-touristy gem. Nearby is an innovative cafe and gallery and Sintra and beyond can be reached by the hourly bus from the bottom of the drive. Nearby too are many good local restaurants and beaches. This is really a pearl of a property in an area that has resisted tourist tackiness and exploitation and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. If you are in a group, Mary can introduce you to a great local cook, Sarah, who will bring an excellent and innovative local meal for you each evening at a reasonable cost. That and Mary's hospitality made our holiday perfect.
