Ormond (www.ormondfannon.net) is English and his wife Lena is Portuguese. Since their three children flew the nest their house has become too big for the two of them, so they restructured and converted the top floor of their hillside triplex home into a totally separate and independent holiday apartment which they rent out to guests for the summer months each year.
Absolutely beautiful, panoramic view in a superb location and in easy reach of beach, town or countryside (whether on foot or by local transport or car). The local villagers are charming and everyone is friendly. A truly relaxing place to stay, but with plenty to do within easy reach.
Lena and Ormond are discreet landlords, but are readily available for information or to help resolve any concerns if at all needed. It would be really difficult to find a more attractive holiday home, such a spectacular view and such a varied local enviroment.
