When you're in the water all you can see are mountains and greenery, not a house in sight - a sense of total isolation in watery bliss.Cosy, cool interiors. Four French windows and two picture windows in this one room alone making it very  light and bright with views of mountains, gardens and swimming pool.

Sunday Times Country cottage of the year. Comfortable and homely. For the past 28 years I have loved and tended this special place. With stunning views across a bucolic valley, beautifully located pool. 5 mins to great sand and surf beaches.

Susanna and her family were an absolute pleasure to have as my first ever visitors on Airbnb. I am so lucky that they appreciated all that I love about Portugal.

We stayed at Susan's house with our three children. The house is exactly as described. It is ideally located near beaches and nice towns. A supermarket is just nearby. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Response from Susan:
I would be delighted to welcome you back and it was lovely to meet you all. When my own family is often scattered far and wide during the summer months I love to see the house being used by other families thus continuing a long tradition and allowing the house and garden to once again ring with the sound of laughter. Thank you to Les Vanhouttes!
