Uma pequena maravilha
Excelente. Tudo impecável, casa de muito bom gosto e sobretudo o lugar certo para passar uns dias em paz.

5/5 Excellent

Very nice cottage located in the middle of nature
The house was very nice. It has a nice atmosphere and two very nice terraces. The house is basic but everything you need is there. If you love nature and being away from the crowd, then this house is perfect. The region is not very touristic with nice small towns at the coast. We very much enjoyed our stay here.

5/5 Excellent

We loved the time spent at this outstanding place...remote and rustic. spacious and airy... and a very helpful landlord!

5/5 Excellent

Un havre de paix
Notre séjour a été une vraie merveille. Joao est un propriétaire très attentionné. Nous avons trouvé une maison impeccable et magnifique. C'est un lieu magique. Ne pas oublier de prendre un guide sur les oiseaux (pic epeichette, chouette hulotte, guêpier d'Europe, pie bleue, rapaces) ... Quel plaisir d'être entouré de nature, de prendre sa douche dehors au milieu des chênes lièges et de manger sous une des deux pergolas végétales. La maison reste fraîche par grosse chaleur. La cuisine est très bien équipée. Nous avons adoré. C'est un trésor ...mais chut...gardons ce secret bien gardé !!!
