The house is enormous and marvellous. It's a real lived-in place with every thing you could possibly need. It is in a quiet rural setting but with access to the coast and some fantastic beaches just a few minutes away. This is an excellent place to stay for a large family or group of friends. There were eleven of us and we had an unforgettable long weekend. The house is big enough for people to do their own thing and not bother each other, and also come together in the living room or dining room with space to spare. Afonso, the host, is very helpful and communicated readily with us before we went and on our arrival, when he came to meet us and gave us detailed explanations about everything. I couldn't recommend this house more.
