This was a lovely holiday and the coastal walks especially glorious. Vivian and Alan gave us a warm welcome and we appreciated the welcome pack of groceries and the very comfortable and well appointed townhouse with swimming pool. We were provided with interesting, varied and sometimes challenging walks through vineyards, river valleys, the Gavarres hills and the craggy coastal paths. Be sure to take your swimming gear as the sea is hard to resist!
