Casa do Rio - 500 m from the beach
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Fabulous apartment, with fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do the apartment justice - the view is picture postcard! Within 10 mins walking distance of the long sandy beach and the local village. Ruth was very welcoming and informative, and gave numerous recommendations for local amenities and restaurants. The accommodation provided a homely feel and is tastefully decorated, with everything you would expect ... and more! There are several other picturesque beaches, towns and cities within easy driving distance, making this an ideal location from which to explore this region of Portugal.

Muy bien.

  • 4 of 5

Es un apartamento muy acogedor, ámplio y bien distribuido. La dueña tiene todo tipo de menaje y electrodomésticos en muy buen estado de limpieza y conservación. Además si tienes un problema te responde al momento. Las vistas desde la terraza son espectaculares. En general muy bien con la única salvedad de que no hay ascensor y hay tres tramos de ocho escalones que se hacen incómodos si uno viaja con limitaciones de movilidad. Un lugar para repetir.
