“Simple accommodation, great location, super pool, lovely people”

The log cabin is simple accommodation with lovely views across the Portuguese interior. The farm is located in a pretty valley and the cabin is on top of a small hill and a very short walk from the main house and pool.

We booked via the internet having not heard of the cabin before. We were looking for something unusual and a holiday destination that offered a little extra to keep our two young girls entertained. We were not disappointed. The farm, with its pigs, goats, sheep, geese, chickens and very very friendly dogs was a real adventure. The owners, Glynn and Julie, are a generous, kind and very accommodating English couple. They welcomed us with a meal, and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable fun stay. Every morning our girls helped them feed the animals and learned a lot in the process, and we started and finished each day with a dip in the pool.

On a practical note August in Portugal can have fearsomely high temperatures and the cabin can be pretty hot during the day. A car for us was essential and we had some great days out within a 45-60 minute drive (on very empty roads). The Water Parks to the South on the Algarve are fun and there are truly gorgeous beaches on the west coast.
