Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review Nadine - I know from your emails that you enjoyed your break at Casa do Limao! I am fairly sure that the petrol smell has now gone, as it was a treatment for the stone work that was applied a couple of weeks before your visit, but hope that it didn't affect your stay...
