Fantastic view, and a pool
Posted Oct 5, 2012 on Hotels
It was worth the long drive along a forest road (Casa Pinha is well signposted if your satnav plays tricks on you like ours did). The view over Figuera da Foz is fantastic, rooms spotlessly clean and comfortable (mattress a little too firm for me, though) with wi-fi, small TV and H&C air conditioning. En-suite shower rooms have individual water heaters. The owner was welcoming and spoke a few words of English. The buffet breakfast was decent, with tea or coffee served at the table. The restaurant and pool are open to the public.
This is really a perfect place to stay in summer, with the Atlantic breeze cooling the sun terrace around the pool, which was just warm enough to swim in on a sunny early October day but in winter I imagine the location could be chilly and bleak.
