Everything about our stay in this place was amazing. The house is beautifully restored, well located in Fountainhas, and the rooms are cool, spacious and beautifully furnished. Even the neighbours are delightful, greeting visitors wandering past their homes in the tiny lanes surrounding the house. For a glimpse of traditional life, try the tiny family-owned bakery near the house, which still has its original oven and turns out delectable treats.
The owner, Roy, extends outstanding hospitality. He knows each guest by name, and goes out of his way to ensure that everyone is happy. Apart from pointing us in the direction of good restaurants and local attractions, he picked up on our special interests and suggested places and events to align with these. This included personally taking us to some of these places, a gesture that was very much appreciated. Roy puts his heart into ensuring his guests enjoy his house and their stay.
Breakfasts in the pleasant garden courtyard were leisurely and enjoyable starts to the day. Roy made sure that there was something different each day, and we particularly enjoyed the bebinca prepared by one of Roy's neighbours.
A highly recommended option for people who like authenticity in their holiday accommodation.
