A secluded, peaceful place where we could relax and unwind. At times one can be very aware of the local animal life - cocks crowing, frogs and birds, plus a few motorbikes!! - All part of this attractive Portuguese rural area.Very friendly, kind and helpful hosts in Barbaro and Uli. Beautiful salt water swimming pool is shared with them but feels totally private as guests always have priority. Excellent sun loungers by pool and on balcony. Lovely garden and pond and quiet seating area. House is simply and well-equpped. Beds comfortable. All windows have mesh screens so very few insects although some mosquitos at night. Bring repellants and we advise anti-mozzi electrical plug/app. August is very hot. There is a fan in the Studio. Having house and studio together is ideal for group of 5 adults. We thoroughly recommend this besutiful place.
