Comfortable, spacious home close to the beach
This is a lovely home in the small suburb of Espartal a short drive from Aljezur. Everything in the house is as described in the listing and shown in the photos. The only small surprise to us was that the shower heads are hand-held 'european' ones and not free-standing shower heads that you can stand under. Although we are not used to using this type of shower, it was not a problem. The beds and living areas were very comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed to cook all our meals over 10 days. There are three distinct outdoor seating areas - two upstairs and one downstairs (where there is a dining table and chairs). This allowed us to pick and choose where we sat depending on the direction of the sun and wind. Entertainment options are also plentiful. The beach is a short drive or about a 20 minute walk away. There is a large screen TV and the internet worked well. We spent most of our 10 days hiking and there are many trails within a short distance of the house. There is a very good supermarket in Aljezur along with a small fresh produce market. Communication with Luis was very good - prompt and detailed. The view from the front windows and balcony is excellent. We would highly recommend this house.
