Um autêntico Recanto
A nossa estadia no Recanto não podia ter sido melhor, desde a recepção fantástica pela Maria, como toda a nossa permanência na casa. Umas condições fantásticas, decoração moderna, um brio! Uma piscina que convida desde manhã até à noite. Ficamos muito contentes, e esperamos regressar ao Retiro, onde fomos muito felizes. Aconselhamos vivamente, vão e aproveitem!

5/5 Excellent

El recibimiento, disponibilidad y cuidado continuo de María no puede ser mejor. Todo es fácil con ella. La casa preciosa, limpia, todo nuevo y decorada con mucho gusto. Comodísimo todo: la piscina, cocina, habitaciones, garaje... una gozada. El entorno rural, de viñedos y monte, muy tranquilo y para perderse a gusto. Si quieres alejarte de todo, es el sitio ideal. Hace falta coche para visitar ciudades. Yo me quedaría a vivir ;) Obrigada
