My husband booked the B&B with Carolyn and John and I can say I was pleasantly surprised. On arriving they were wonderful hosts, poor John had to even come out and rescue us as we got lost! We arrived and Carolyn had prepared an evening meal for us which was absolutely lovely - I am a fussy eater but after eating that first evening meal, my husband and I dined at Casa Das Flores for most of our stay there.
Our room was tastefully decorated and clean and we had a little sitting out area with a balcony which looked out onto a beautiful valley. We slept very well for the 8 nights we were there.
Although John and Carolyn were always 'pottering' around, my husband and I felt very welcome and never in the way. We spent many of our afternoons just chilling by the pool drinking Portuguese wine.
We had a lovely relaxed breakfast, made by Carolyn every morning which tasted wonderful - I am not sure whether it was Carolyn's skills in the kitchen or the wonderful Portuguese local produce that she purchased - or indeed both, but food has never tasted so good.
On leaving (which we didn't want to do) we felt sure we had made some good friends and will hopefully see them again if our own place is incomplete by Christmas. Though even if it's complete, I am sure that Carolyn and John would welcome an impromptu visit.
I would recommend this place to everyone, it had all we needed but I have to say - most of all - it was Carolyn's excellent cooking, lovely warm nature and also John's funny sense of humour that made our stay.
John and Carolyn, if you read this, you deserve to be number one on Tripadvisor in Portugal - without a doubt!
