We went on the recommendation of some Dutch friends in Portugal who run a similar five-star establishment on the Algarve. We knew, therefore, that it would be good but it turned out to be beyond all expectations. Other people on this site have reported on how friendly the owners,Willy and Trudi are. They couldn't have been more helpful ... lifts into town, arranging restaurants, organising a hire car to be delivered and collected and other little kindnesses plus immaculate service. We were helped, too, by Elise, Chantal,Jack and Lois who, again, went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one.
Willy and Trudi have renovated this historic property themselves and demonstrates their passion for perfection. This is manifest not just in the building itself but in their whole approach which makes a holiday one to write home about.
Oh, and by the way, the star of the show is the adorable Sjakie (pron Sharkey), the Spanish hunting dog..
Our room was superb, we had the pool to ourselves most of the time and the breakfast was such that lunch was never necessary !
This is a complete gem.
