4/5 Good

Casa nos arrozais
Uma casa lindíssima, muito bem decorada e altamente equipada. Próxima da praia, dista 5 min a pé. Infelizmente fica situada na periferia dos arrozais o que traz bastantes mosquitos activos a partir do pôr do sol. Rede mosquiteira nas camas é uma adição obrigatória. Bons restaurantes na proximidade em zona muito tranquila. Fizemos uns belíssimos churrascos e disfrutamos do entardecer no sofá exterior com uma luz dourada lindíssima de fim de dia, até há vinda dos mosquitos que nos obrigavam a recolher para o interior. Tivemos uma óptima semana em família.

5/5 Excellent

Una casa preciosa
Esta casa está situada en un lugar privilegiado, con una decoración y buen gusto que la hacen especial. María está pendiente de todos los detalles. Repetiremos.
