Positives - great views, lots of space, good towels, nice & quiet location.
And now the Negatives - The list is endless and I left 3 pages of A4 detailing them.
DIRT, Poor Maintenace, Mould, Damp & Musty Smell, Bare Wires, No mattress protectors (ugh), no smoke alarms, unusable rusty old BBQ, Unusable walk-in closet due to lack of light and horrendous damp smell, Shower curtain rails & curtain rails fell down, unusable & mouldy broken bikes, lights not working, toilet seats not secure, cutlery tray full of bits, cobwebs, hairs in bathroom etc etc. Outside space had not been swept and hosed down. The outside furniture had not been cleaned and had to be washed before use.
Also note that this property is for 6 people and there is only a 2 seater sofa in the lounge - where is everyone else supposed to sit?
When we book a holiday home we do not expect to have to clean it on arrival!
The house was cleaner when we left than when we arrived.
When new, pristine & kitted out with all it promises it would be impressive. Now it's tired, under maintained & in places delapidated.
E.G. it promises bikes - however these all 3 bike had flat tyres, 1 had fungus rotted tyres & one had a pedal off.
An ever present aroma of rotting wood which appears to be in every cupboard, to which no amount of scented candles left by the owner will mask it. You can picture the disappointment this property leaves.
Place needs work and the pictures obviously don't show this.
Rather than the bottle of wine, cake & soup that was supplied on our arrival I would have preferred a clean house with all the facilities working properly.
If TV is important to you beware that there are only the basic 7 Portugese channels.
