This beautiful traditional country cottage comprises of: Downstairs lounge; one bedroom with double bed; shower room and W.C; small patio and large outdoor shaded dining area with table and chairs. Upstairs is the kitchen and dining room with private balcony and roof terrace for a further outdoor relaxing/ dining option. Free internet is available.


Entrance is by way of downstairs patio doors which enter into the cosy lounge with a comfortable sofa, armchair, wood burning stove, side tables, bookshelves and T.V and D.V.D player.  The exposed beams and open wooden staircase add to the romantic cottage ambience. Books, games and D.V.D's are provided for cozy nights in, or we can arrange for a taxi to take you to one of the numerous local restaurants, many within a 5 minute drive of the cottage.


Through from the lounge is the double bedroom. There is a comfortable double bed with bedside tables, double wardrobe, chair, electric radiator, clothes hanger and chest of drawers.  For your comfort and hygiene, pillow, mattress and duvet protectors are used. Pillows are replaced and the duvet cover is dry cleaned regularly. At the end of the room there is ample space for a travel cot or air bed (provided at no extra cost) for a little one.


The pretty shower room (between the bedroom and lounge) comprises handbasin and bidet, W.C and shower, electric heater and heated towel rail. All towels and linen are provided and are changed on a weekly basis.


The spacious upstairs kitchen and dining area has a dining table and 4 chairs, as well as 2 comfortable arm chairs. The lovely pine kitchen was completed by a local craftsman. It is finished with granite worktops and is fully equipped with 4 ring gas hob and oven with grill, fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine, toaster, kettle and of course all crockery, cutlery, cookware (and other 'little extras') are also provided. The vaulted beamed ceiling adds to the feeling of space.  The vented chimney heats this space from the downstairs during the short winter months and during warmer weather you have your own private balcony, which leads to a private roof terrace with dining table and chairs for al-fresco dining, and reclining chairs where you can relax and enjoy a glass of something refreshing.


The entire cottage is very clean, comfortable and well presented.


We can arrange for fresh morning rolls to be delivered daily on request. The nearest bar serving snacks is in Vale de Acores, just a 15 minute walk or two minute drive away, and there are numerous cafes and restaurants all within a five to fifteen minute drive.


Your hosts are on hand to provide any information you may require about the local area or to help you book any activities (e.g. wine tours, health and beauty treatments or outdoor sports activities). We also have two mountain bikes available for your use free of charge, as well as a tent with all camping gear.


Our extremely generous neighbours often supply us with some lovely seasonal fruit and vegetables so don't be surprised to find the odd bag of fresh green beans and courgettes on your doorstep. If you come at the right time of year you may even be able to help yourself to an orange or lemon from the citrus trees outside your bedroom window........
