From London, United Kingdom Aug 2010

The house was lovely and the setting was very picturesque. We were looking for a nice quiet holiday in a remote part of the Portuguese countryside and it delivered exactly what we asked. The house was clean, well taken-care-of and the pool was great! The beach a couple of km up the road was also absolutely beautiful. We would definitely recommend to our friends. Thank you!

Would definately reccommend and hope to be back again very soon!

Thankyou so much to Nuno and his colleagues for a wonderful time!
