We returned to Casa Das Flores for the second time in eight months and it was just like going back to visit friends. The hospitality was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for Carolyn and John. We stayed during a rainy spell which meant that it was not as warm as when we first visited so Carolyn was on hand to offer hot water bottles if needed. The food was wonderful with home made soups offered some nights along with crusty warm bread and followed with such things as steak pie, pork fillet in sauce, chicken in a white wine sauce and a cottage pie ( requested by us ) all with various potatoes and garden vegetables. These were followed by such things as home made crumble, strawberries and cream, and a traditional fruit cake dessert which was lovely. Breakfast is set up for you to help yourself to cereals and orange juice and you are then offered eggs ( in any shape or form ) or beans on toast followed by extra toast so that you can sample Carolyns home made jam or marmalade and of course plenty of tea or coffee.
The rooms as mentioned in my last review are clean and modern in decor and the fluffy white robes and towels supplied save having to pack these yourselves.
On a nice night there is the barbecue area to sit and enjoy the night warmth whilst enjoying a glass of the local wines that John has in his wine rack..... John will always pick up anything you may need in the local town when he goes in to do the shopping ( only do not ask him to get you new potatoes as he forgets to collect them and blames Carolyn !!! ) Cheers bud .....
We love staying with this fantastic couple in their comfortable B&B and will return soon I hope.
