Stayed Saturday 07 August 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!

Greeted upon arrival by friendly owners who were very kind and helpful. Villa is fantastic with lots of character in a superb location with the wonderful golden beaches and the sleepy village of Melides with excellent restaurants and fish market within 2 km. Would definately reccommend and hope to be back again very soon! Thankyou so much to Nuno and his colleagues for a wonderful time!
