Beautiful outside but too dark & damp for us inside
Mandy has been very helpful and kind, lovely hostess and very clear instructions. The house & garden are both very spacious and the kids had a fun time playing! The house however wasn’t the perfect fit for us. We stayed with two families with small children. My family stayed in the downstairs wing where it felt like sleeping in a basement. Very damp and musty. The beds upstairs and downstairs were uncomfortable, the rooms downstairs were very simple. The temperature of the water in the shower upstairs was hard to adjust and nearly burned one of the kids after first being cold for what seemed for ever. Everything including towels etc was old. There were no beach towels. Kitchen very well stocked though. The house is situated on a very uninspiring resort where as we were hoping to enjoy the authentic Portugal. We should have researched the area better. We choose the house because of its character but we might be happier with a slightly newer and more luxury home next time!
