Stayed here for a week and while I have read some rather derogatory remarks about cats peeing all over the place, we found this not to be the case. There were two beautiful cats at the hotel which just added to its charm. The rooms were very clean although a little dark. The breakfasts were very good value offering a wide range of choices, both hot and cold. The evening meals were ok but lacked a little imagination for vegetarians. The staff were very friendly and helpful with excellent linguistic skills. Well run small hotel, ideal for short holidays to this fine area of Portugal.
