Sorry it took so long! We stayed here for a week at the end of our honeymoon. We stayed in fig tree cottage and it was immaculately clean and had a good kitchen upstairs bedroom and bathroom with an additional door. A lot of space for 2 people. The pictures don't do it justice, we had a look at the other 2 cottages and they were really well restored and great for families or for couples to stay in separate accommodation and share a pool and various other facilities but all be together.
If you want to be near a town with excellent facilities, but want peace and quiet, love the river and enjoy walking this is the place for you. I would hire a car though.
The owners are a British/Portuguese couple who are really loving their good life style life. They also know how to have a lovely evening with a bottle or 2 of their own wine from their vines and make you feel really welcome.
We haven't stopped talking about it since we got back.
We are trying to find sometime to book back in next year.
Keep in touch Clare and Spencer x
