Very old cottage in the centre of Alcoutim.
The property could do with a bit of modernisation. The bathroom is poorly laid out and would not suit someone with a large frame. Having said that, we enjoyed our stay. It was clean and tidy, well equipped and good value. There's not really enough room for four to eat on the small terrace. Alcoutim is a delightful town with lots to see and do nearby and about 1 hour from the excellent beaches on the coast.
Lovely Portuguese house very cosy and close to all Amenities.
Very cosy well equipped house, Alcoutim a very lovely village well worth a visit. Great night out in Shiva Indian Restaurant.
