This house was beautiful and with an excellent range of facilities.
It was on the edge of a small town but the surroundings were very peaceful. It was only 2 or 3 minutes' drive from the motorway and there were several supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants within a few minutes' walk.
The owner responded promptly to all our e-mails and everything was exactly as described. We were looked after very well by his patients who were very friendly and welcoming.
The garden to the rear of the house was a lovely place in which to spend sunny afternoons, the large pool with diving board was clean and well maintained and there was also a good range of sun loungers and inflatable toys for the children. There was also a tennis court which was good fun to use in the evenings. The interior of the house was well furnished and clean and there was also air conditioning available in the bedrooms. The pool table was well-used by us and the living area was enormous. Although the kitchen area was slightly small we found that it was adequate for making breakfast, sandwiches and simple meals. There was an induction hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave oven, coffee maker and a small BabyBelling type oven. As long as you weren't planning on hosting a dinner-party for eight people it was fine. There was an excellent restaurant & takeaway approximately 10 minutes' walk from the house (estação) and we ended up having takeaway meals from there on most nights. Overall this house is highly recommended.
