Although not without its small negatives, the positives far outweigh them to allow us to give this a five star rating.
As long as you recognize that you're getting a small room with no A/C, this is the place for your stay in the Algarve.
Eva is a delight (unfortunately Mats was away when we were there). She was very personable and provided us with great food and service. Little touches were appreciated such as a note one afternoon that said that as Eva was taking a rest, we could have a complementary afternoon alcoholic drink on the house! This in addition to the fact that cakes and coffee and tea were provided every afternoon.
We were at the very end of her season but she still had plenty of time and enthusiasm for her guests.
Thanks Eva (and we'll be sending the keys back that we inadvertently took home!)
