Having travelled all over the world, this was our first trip to Portugal. It was as lovely as friends had told us. This was our first time using "Holiday Letting", & I was worried about whether, having paid upfront, the villa existed ( read too many newspaper holiday disasters ). Debbie, the wonderful owner of the villa, was very prompt in replying to all my emails before arriving & my text whilst staying.
Enormous thanks to her for the directions to the villa from Obidos. We arrived on a late flight & although had Sat Nav, the villa is located on a new road not mapped yet. So it was a slightly nervous car ride to the villa, left hand drive, gear stick on right & map reading in the dark & raining, but her detailed instructions were faultless. Definitely recommend Sat Nav, for the rest of the region.
The villa was amazingly beautiful, ( Photographs do not do it justice ), airy, clean, A/C in lounge area & had everything you could ask for, with two teenagers who can't live without Facebook & satellite TV etc... ( Wi-Fi available). A lovely quiet location, so sitting by the pool was very peaceful & relaxing. A car is a necessity, as the nearest supermarket is a distance away. Fresh bread can be bought daily by a local man who announces his arrive by honking his horn in the street. Everybody we met were very friendly & although our Portuguese was limited, we enjoyed our wonderful holiday & hope to go back to the villa in the near future.
