Don’t pass this one by! This property is a real gem of a find. I have been three times (last year most recent). It’s clearly a well-cared for place that’s very clean and fresh. Two bathrooms is a major plus, it has a very spacious feel to it. I love the view of the monastery. The surrounding area gives you a feel for the real Portugal; it has an air and atmosphere of tradition… I personally don’t want to be surrounded by Brits when I’m on holiday and you don’t tend to get loads of them here. You are surrounded everywhere by Portuguese coffee culture – the coffee and cakes are great. Communication isn’t generally a problem as many of the Portuguese people speak a good level of English. The property is very convenient for train travel. I love the nearby beaches, the waves are quite compelling and the sunsets over the ocean will take your breath away… Take your camera, I’ve got some great shots that I’m getting put onto canvass, they’re that good! The property is excellent value for money and, as another reviewer commented, you will be surprised at how cheap it is to eat out locally. I will definitely be returning.
