A stay in unspoilt Portugal
Submitted: May 20, 2008

My extended family stayed at this large, well appointed villa for a week this year. Everything described on the website was accurate, the villa was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Directions provided by the owner were very precise, it is a long track after the main road, about a mile, just keep going it's worth it!
The area is very beautiful and as yet unspoilt, beaches nearby are deserted and very dramatic. A short car ride takes you into the hills surrounding the villa to see a Portugal unchanged in recent years.
A car is essential as the nearest shops are about 2 miles, only 5 minutes in the car but I would not fancy the walk!
Lovely local restaurants, the owners are able to recommend several. O Bernardos and O Tarro were excellent.
We used the tennis court frequently, first class, swimming pool was a bit cold but it was early in the season, crystal clear water.
Overall a very enjoyable stay in a chilled out atmosphere, very tranquil and situated in a stunning area, I will defenitely be going back.

Owner's Response: If you are looking for a holiday that is totally relaxed and in an area of outstanding natural beauty, look no further!
The villa is ideal for large family groups or friends, sleeping 14 in comfort and privacy. The valley with cork trees and abundant bird life makes for a relaxed and interesting alternative to the beaches.
