Over more than two decades I visited the Algarve for holidays starting when many of the coastal sprawling developments of today were tiny fishing villages. In seeking to recapture those years of few tourists and a more peaceful and less commercial Portugal I looked north and found Casa do Castanheiro. The website description is pitch perfect. The cottage is comfortable and the setting within the garden can hardly be bettered. The garden has been landscaped over the years by the owner starting from a neglected and over grown property with a small cottage in a dilapidated state. One looks down with a bird's eye view of teh ancient small towns of Caminha with the twinkling lights at night lighting up the skyline. The view extends to the large expanse of the River Minho which joins Portugal with Spain via a regular ferry service. For children there is the pool and lawn space to play games and let off steam. A fine long sandy stretch of beach is within just a few kilometres and easily accessible. Caminha with its ancient square offers small cafes and restaurants, and there is a typical Portuguese fresh vegetable, fruit and fish market. Casa do Castanheiro has been a happy find.
