very beautiful and comfortable property, very quiet, and quite close to Lagos and its beaches

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent three weeks at this property, the CHESTNUT HOMESTEAD, in portuguese, A HERDADE DOS CASTANHEIROS. It was just a fantastic stay. FERNANDO and his daughter ANA were perfect hosts, very friendly, telling us about Portugal, and giving us advice about food, beaches, etc...The apartment in the house was extremely nice, very spacious, very quiet, no noise at all whatsoever, the perfect place to rest. As for the beaches, if you do stay in HERDADE DOS CASTANHEIROS, you will have many to choose from, but MEIA PRAIA has been our favorite, it's only 12 km away , it's just gigantic, and apart from a few days, we can't say that there are really many people. You've got km of sand just for you...Now that we are back in the Alps, we are thinking of HERDADE DOS CASTANHEIROS every day. .And before finishing this review, we want to thank again FERNANDO and ANA for the wonderful hospitality they have shown. A perfect stay, the best of our 7 stays in Portugal...

Familiär, unaufdringlich, sehr zuvorkommend, geräumig, liebevolle Einrichtung, ländliches Flair in Lage und Einrichtung, ruhig und abseits vom Trubel an der Küste gut gelegen für Ausflüge auch ins Hinterland und an die Westküste. Empfehlen wir sehr gern weiter.
