First time in Portugal and this was a great find. Quiet in a lovely region. A car is must to explore the area but roads are generally quiet. Owner helpful and friendly

Gillian set the atmosphere of care and attention way before arrival - being at the end of a phone for any guest checking that their route was correct and guiding them in the right direction - thank you - and then being at the entrance with a wave and a smile definitely sets the s…
