very relaxing and spacious holiday getaway
We loved Casa Alexandra, especially the outdoor areas. We spent over 3 weeks during October and the weather was fantastic apart from a few days of rain. The views from the pagoda are sensational, especially at sunset and the pool terrace and surroundings are spacious. We loved having barbeques by the pool and picking our own oranges and lemons from the trees. Moncarapacho and Fuzeta are very close and have a nice authentic feel to them. The beaches are beautiful and we loved how unspoilt they are.
We will definitely return!
