Pretty cottage in nice setting

  • 5 of 5

A very nice cottage in a rural setting but only a few minutes from the town of Arganil. Jane was very helpful in giving us information and the cottage had everything we needed. I will definitely recommend to my friends.

Lovely cottage, all you need, superb location!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely quaint character cottage, very well kept with everything you could need (including Wifi and a private sun trap garden). A beautiful and idyllic setting, very conveniently located for shopping, sight seeing (numerous great suggestions provided in a handy custom made guide in the cottage) and other amenities. Very helpful advice and assistance from the owner and friendly neighbours. Local people also very friendly and relaxed.The local cuisine is out of this world, the supermarket fish and meat counters carry an incredible range of amazing fresh choices; many local delicacies too. Would certainly recommend!
