In addition to the bathroom in the master bedroom, two additional bathrooms are located in the hallway. One of them also has a large bathtub with shower, the other a sink and shower. With the sink in the yellow bathroom and the three bathrooms there is never a need to delay taking a refreshing shower or a relaxing lazy bath after a long day outside.


The hallway and the yellow bedroom have well-stocked bookcases with all kinds of English and other language novels and informative books for our guests to enjoy. Please leave one you brought along but finished reading, or please take one if you did not yet finish it by the time you leave. Many tourist books about Portugal and the Algarve are also provided.
