Wonderful place in the middle of nowhere. Peaceful, charming and refined. I assume it must be top of the range among these popular Portuguese villas, consisting on a main building intended for general services (restaurant, reception, chill-out,...) and several "cabin-rooms" at some walking distance. Personnel were friendly, smiling and helpful. Very good quality breakfast. This is a four stars rural hotel and you first notice it in the rooms, stylish and modern. You clearly see that this is a brand new place. Maybe the mini-fridge is a little bit noisy at night... But in my opinion the most important thing is how well tranquility is preserved. Surrounded by nature and covered by a sheer sky is easy to find some time for dozing by the pool in the morning sun or just stargazing at night on a cool breeze. You absolutely need a car to discover the beautiful unspoiled beaches of the surroundings (25 kms. to Porto Covo) and a good map (or GPS) to find your way back :-). Just one small punctilious suggestion: the paddle court and the fitness track don´t fit very well in the relaxing and quiet environment described above... I would plant some more trees instead.
