Magnifique séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour chez Peggy et Mario, des hôtes très disponibles pour nous guider dans nos excursions. L'appartement du rez-de-chaussée est très agréable et très frais. Parfait pour résister aux chaleurs de l'été. La piscine est très belle, comme sur les photos, et le jardin ombragé, plein d'orangers et de citronniers. Je recommande cet hébergement dans lequel j'espère avoir l'occasion de séjourner à nouveau lors d'un prochain voyage au Portugal.
