The house is part of a modest two house complex off the main road through Sagres. Both are quite separate and there is complete privacy between the two. Also, because of the extensive foliage between neighbouring properties, it is quite secluded and there is a gate that can be locked at the road. There is a small pool of just over waist height (ideal for children) and a garden that stretches around the house with space for a BBQ. It is walking distance to shops and restaurants and, in terms of the local area, it is easy to drive to beaches, historic attractions and other neighbouring towns.
We really appreciated the consideration and attention of Isabel, the owner, and of her local Portuguese contacts who ensured that we were happy with the stay. On the first day, there was a freak incident with the water mains out by the road (obviously not the owner's fault) and not only did the local contractor fix this quickly, tidily and with great consideration for us but we were also compensated by the owner. We had found the hospitality locally to be warm and earnest and I think that this shows how this good will is infectious!
We would recommend this property for a quiet and relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Portugal that is mainly national park, low on development and has excellent seafood and local produce.
The fact that the two separate houses in this complex can be rented at the same time would make it ideal for a larger family/friends group.
