Was looking forward to visiting these little places. Shame that they are a bit run down and are basically now shops. Didn’t really have long to explore properly but a few minutes for a photo shoot is ample.

Santana has the old A frame houses littered up their high street. They’ve been modified into craft shops etc, but there is one on the outskirts which is still being lived in. Great for a short stop or lunch. Very interesting

The village is only for a short stop over as there are only 5 houses and can be seen in 10 mins. The journey to the town is beautiful and the reason for going.

We were looking for another day trip, so we were OK w/ this excursion, but there isn't much else to see in the area and the houses are just buildings for tourist items. We also justified the trip by going to the wicker factory, which...More

The typical houses are nice to see. The gift shop is in 1 of them. We spent less than 30 minutes there, just walking a bit around, taking pictures and buy a souvenir. There is a free covered parking just opposite the traditional houses.
