Lovely get away at a very good price. We stayed two nights in Tom and Monique' s newly converted summer house on the side of a hill and valley on their unusual farm. Very clean and newly renovated the house was fine for us, good shower and water, private and came with everything we needed to prepare and cook for ourselves. We were welcome to explore the creek and the land which we did. We chatted about the history of the region and how they kept, fed/milked a pair of goats, and worked the land.
We took in a great canoe trip at Odemira one of the days where we saw kingfishers other wild life and had a 4 hour paddling experience on one of the unique rivers of Portugal - helped by the tidal current 33 kms from the sea !
Evenings were lovely with views and sunsets as we relaxed on the terrace outside the summer house.
Sometimes the electricity cut out when too many appliances were used at once, and the last part of the drive is steep but fine fro our hire car. It was a lovely time as a family and Tom and Monique were very welcoming and nice.
