Booked this for a large family celebration on recommendation from a friend. I can only describe the area as like Tuscany, but 30 years ago - totally unspoilt.
The family were overwhelmed by how beautiful the place is, and I can only say that the photos completely reflect reality. I will shortly be uploading my photos.
This really is undiscovered Portugal. We travelled to various villages locally, where we found decent groceries and fresh foods (Coja is the nearest). We cooked on the bar-b-que most evenings; but although restaurants in the area are not plentiful, we were recommended a few locally, a couple of which we tried which were delicious and great value!
