Lovely property with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Carlos and Helena were excellent hosts who made sure everything was perfect with the accommodation but gave you your own privacy completely. The villa is only a couple of years old and offers excellent accomodation. The views from the terrace are stunning - views of the hills and the town of white houses with their red roofs and then up to the castle on the hill all lit up of which my photos could not do it justice. Arraiolos is quiet with a few restaurants about 1 kilometre from the house but we often liked to stay in - the BBQ is fantastic with lots of wood supplied and Carlos told us we could help ourselves to fruit and vegetables from the garden whilst Helena bought us some warm cakes she'd made! I only used the swimming pool once as was a little cold and I had a cold! The area around the swimming pool needed weeding/clearing/freshening up which is the only thing that brings it down from 5 stars for the cost.

Thank you Carlos and Helena for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Good night, Victoria and Will We thank you very much for your kind and detailed comment about your stay. With regard to the pool every year before the summer season, when it is used, we clean the enclosure of the herbs that grew during the winter and we paint the walls. This year the coming of the heat much earlier did not allow it to be ready during your stay, for which we apologize. We are now dealing with its cleanliness, although it has now finally begun to rain. We hope that on your next visit, everything will be in accordance with your expectations. Kind regards Carlos and Helena
