“Relaxing rural retreat”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Beautiful little cottage in stunning countryside. We would definitely come back! Toby and Cher are wonderful hosts and gave us lots of good recommendations for local beaches and places to eat. It was extremely relaxing to see the sun setting over the valley from the veranda with a glass of wine. The cottage is cosy and modern inside and Toby and Cher have thought of everything you might need. It is the perfect retreat.

“Peace and Perfection”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I spent almost a week with my brand new wife at toby's place, and I don't even know where to start heaping on the compliments. Everything, and I mean absolutely everything, was perfectly perfect. The space itself is incredibly beautiful and thoughtful. everything was easy, the kitchen fully equipped. There's a level of thought and design that went into every detail that is essentially unmatched across anywhere I have stayed. The lands are stunningly beautiful, and the outdoor spaces really lend themselves to peace, quiet, and relaxation. It's also close enough to all of the best beaches, some interesting little towns and villages, and plenty of good restaurants. We had the best trip at Toby and Cher's, there was seriously nothing that was any less than spectacular. PS, Toby and Cher are very lovely people who work hard to make sure your experience is perfect.

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The first night I got a bit nervous about the quietness, but it is easy and wonderful to get used to when you only hear a bell from a cow in the evening. A fly in the evening already sounds as too much noise. It's calm, beautiful and never too hot because you're on a hill and there is always a nice wind blowing. The house is comfortable and as beautiful inside and outside as the photo's tell you. Everything works and the owners are very kind (but they leave you in peace). It is just outside a very rural and very small village with no shops or restaurants but it's only (a short) half an hour to Villa Nova de Milfontes, where you have everything, including marvellous beaches (go to restaurant A Fateixa in town). For a real supermarket of any size, you have to drive to Odemira. We've had a wonderful week here.

“Romantic getaway in rural Portugal”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I picked this cottage as a compliment to our stay in Lisbon. It was a chance to see the countryside and visit a much different part of Portugal. It was spectacular! The cottage itself is immaculate and has all the comforts of home without feeling overdone. The setting is picturesque, and the farmland feels like it hasn't changed in centuries. Make sure you have a car. The cottage is easy driving distance to Villa de Milfontes, and it's doable day trip to Sagres and Lagos in the Algarve. Toby was a great host, and if we ever get a chance we are definitely going back!
