I moved to Portugal 33 years ago and the more I live here, the more I love the country, the people and the way of life, The Portuguese are so warm and friendly, so hospitable and easy-going. And the food . . . . deliciosa! Not to mention the wine, of course.

Susan Best purchased this cottage in 2006

Sergio and I originally bought this cottage to restore and resell. However, we fell in love with the place and decided to keep it for ourselves. If or when you come here, you will see why.

The fact that we tried to keep as many of the original features of the house as possible give it so much character and it's just so relaxing to sit outside on the patio listening to nothing other than the chirping of birds. Very quiet, very relaxing - just the occasional tractor or truck passing by to tend to animals in the fields. Or Senhor Eduardo, the shepherd, trekking up or down the lane with his goats.

Beautiful cottage in wonderful quiet surroundings

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time that the property we rented was more beautiful than the photos on the website. Very tasteful decoration with respect for the original state. With all modern comfort from home, like a kitchen with all the equipment you need and more. Two bathrooms, nice bedrooms. Surrounded by a nice garden with several terraces and lovely olive trees.
Prepare for a quiet stay and home cooking. We loved it.

TRANQUILA Y MUY ACOGEDORA

  • 5 of 5
Hemos tenido una estancia muy agradable. El entorno y la casa nos ha permitido disfrutar de cosas que nos gustan: ir en bicicleta, hacer footing, tener intimidad y tranquilidad, y visitar pueblos que teníamos planeados en un ratio de 1 hora y media o dos horas como máximo. Bañarnos en playas naturales, es otra de las cosas que teníamos planeadas.

Tradition, heart, soul, comfort

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic place for all lovers of the Portuguese mainland. Charming, comfortable, ultra-well equipped and spotlessly clean. Close to all major attractions but set in nature. One of these rarely found holiday homes, where everything is perfectly balanced. Thank you Sue for a wonderful stay!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5
This was a really wonderful stay...the house felt a home, surrounded by fantastically tranquil countryside. Cuckoos calling in the woods, a quite extraordinary range of wild flowers, walks through the stone walled fields, bike rides, places to sit and read in the sun and shade, local villages - all situated in the aptly named Caminho de felicidade: the path of happiness.

Family holidays

  • 5 of 5
We greatly appreciated our stay in the Christmas season. The house is very comfortable and is very well equipped for cooking. The home-keeping was very friendly and always ready to help. The house is tastefully decorated, retaining the original character of the old houses in the area. The surrounding area is very calm, relaxing, with many olive trees and ancient oaks. Ideal for holidays in family. I heartily recommend.
