We booked not really knowing what to expect of a ‘communal’ property & this place ended up being our most favourite accommodation on our 2 week stay in Portugal. The old renovated cottage with double ensuite suited the two families perfectly. Jose was the perfect host and kindly showed us around the grounds of the manor. We felt so at home there. looking over the terrace at breakfast was another treat. The manor had close access to beaches ,supermarket and a few restaurants if you had a car. We truly enjoyed the local walks and those further afield suggested by Jose. The most tricky issue was finding the house in the first place, with our gps which sent us on an impossible access route- be sure to get instructions and young Or old,you will have the most enjoyable stay.
