An attractive and welcoming base with much local character in the rather twee looking interior and a cheerful, homely atmosphere that appeals to many British guests.

The property shares facilities with its adjacent sister and there is a good range of spa facilities at the Pestana Grand, located 350m away to the W.

Although the main road is located at the bottom of the drive there tends to be little or no interference from traffic noise.



An S-shaped building and a rectangular main building have shaded balconies with many enjoying views over the garden and pool areas. A wide main entrance is approached up a flight of steps or by a gentle slope with a pair of toboggans to one side. A slightly Moorish feel overflows from the interior.
