We had a great holiday. Rio arade house was the perfect environment for our chilled out holiday. We loved laying by the pool. One evening our taxi didn't arrive to take us out so John the owner drove us himself! Perfect hosts friendly and helpful at every turn. Couldn't fault anything

Best place to stay and relax in the pool! Great location which was secluded and quiet. Breakfast was great and we could have it in the garden! The host was very friendly and helpful too. Overall, it was a great experience!
