Cute little house. Helena was very kind, attentive to our needs and available. She is next door. Swimming pool was a savior in this hot weather. She has a couple of dogs... Always barking when we passed by but not aggressive. About 25 min. from most interesting places. You absolutely need a car to live there. Bathroom needs attention (sink, toilet, shower temperature). Clean but not extra clean. It is next to the autodrome and we could hear the racing cars til late. But honestly, for the price, it is a great place. We enjoyed our stay.

We had an amazing stay during our first visit to portugal. The house was clean, spacious and good looking :) The stunning surrounding nature and the lovely swimming area make it a perfect spot to unwind. Furthermore, Helena was a great host and always there with a friendly reply if we had any questions.

We really enjoyed our short stay at Helena's. The area is SO quiet and peaceful, the scenery is also amazing! The house has a cool bohemian vibe and was really clean. The double bed's matress is thin, so if you have some back issues, it's good you know. If you are afraid of dogs, there's 3 living on the property. We really enjoyed the pool and the quietness of the mountains! We recommend!

We spent three nights in this lovely apartment and absolutely loved it. The flat is just as nice - if not nicer - than in the pictures, and it's surrounded with pretty, hilly countryside - we are from London so this peaceful location was exactly what we were looking for. We got lost on our way there (the directions were clear but our phone/GPS had died) and Helena came out looking for us to help us find our way. I would definitely go back and highly recommend it!

We spent 3 days in this wonderfull house. Helena is a great host, he's always available to help you in everything you could need. It'is the best place to enjoy Algarve in a different way, very quite and with a lot of nature around. I recommend this place!!
