4/5 Good

Nice cottage in lovely quiet countryside. We did find the property difficult to find as our sat nav was confused ! No supermarkets near so be sure to stock up well before arriving. Very clean , beds comfortable and well equipped.

4/5 Good

Sophia met us upon our arrival and although we had never met her she made our drive to our rental worth the anxiety we experienced driving the narrow roads and hairpin turns. She had a fire going for us and the heat turned up due to the cold weather Portugal was experiencing during our trip. Our rental was spotlessly clean with lots of clean towels and appliances that all worked. She had information on local trails and even drove us to the next village to help us get some groceries. If you enjoy nature and breath taking views at every turn than this is this place for you. All this said though you may wish to take most if not all of your food and beverages with you as there is not much close by to buy this sort of stuff. Our only regret was having to leave this area.

4/5 Good

Great deal, nice place.
This little house is located in a nearly depopulated village, The surroundings are peaceful, the house is charming and provides nearly everything. It is wonderfully free of knick knacks, everything is there including a dishwasher, a washing machine is nearby. The mattresses are a bit hard (as they are everywhere in Portugal) and the shower is tiny - you can't bend over, if you drop something you need to get out of the stall to pick it up. As everywhere in Portugal, there is a bidet, which used to be a nice fixture before people had showers. The woodburning stove is great, but we would have liked a bit more comfortable seating around it - another small couch. The outdoor seating areas are very nice, enhanced by several very friendly visiting cats. Very comfortable outdoor chairs are provided. Linens, cutlery and dishes are plentiful. We would have liked more than 1 dish soap tablets :-) Overall, this place was by far the nicest and the best deal of the 4 we rented. Highly recommended.

4/5 Good

Acolhedor e tranquilo
Mini férias excelentes. A aldeia é encantadora. A casa é bastante acolhedora e os gestores muito simpáticos.

5/5 Excellent

Rio e Serra
Rio Alvoco com água transparente e quente, com as suas “piscinas” grandes e “privadas”. Passamos horas dentro água. A Serra verde, também foi uma novidade, estávamos a áspera de ver muitas pedras e ficamos a conhecer uma nova serra. Muito verde, muita água, muitas aldeias pequenas perdidas no meio dos vales com casas muito próprias e pessoas acolhedoras. Muito bom para descansar e repor energias (não temos restaurantes, cafés, supermercados e lojas para “passar o tempo”).
