"Serra Vista" - Bungalow, Aldeia Buggaga
You enter the property from the road, through the gate and into the Bungalow's garden, ahead there is a table and chairs in front of the entrance to the Bungalow. As you enter you will find the living area with a sofa that could easily turn into another bed if needed and dining area ahead, to the left is the kitchen equipped with all necessary utensils. Opposite the kitchen there are two bedrooms (2 single beds in each) and to the right is the bathroom.
Where we are
The property lies between the Atlantic coast and the hills of the Serra do Cercal. An excellent feel for the location can be obtained from maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&t=h&om=1&z=11&ll=37.709899,-8.668213&spn=0.297683,0.55069. There are cove beaches nearby, such as Porto Covo and Zambujeira and long stretches of beach at Santo Andre. Vila Nova de Milfontes is a 10 minute drive away, an attractive resort town situated at the mouth of the River Mira. The coastal strip that runs from the port of Sines down to Cape de São Vicente is within the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina and so it is not an over developed area, quite the opposite, a real find. As would be thought for an Atlantic coastal area, it offers sailing, surfing, diving and fishing. Inland there are plenty of opportunities for horse riding, walking, cycling and bird watching. As a car is essential, this extends your sight seeing opportunities and makes it possible to organise a trip to Lisbon, golfing in the Algarve.
There are plenty of restaurants offering Alentejo dishes such as "Pork and Clams", as you would expect the fish dishes are varied and excellent. There are International restaurants such as Brazilian, Chinese, Italian etc.
What we have
The bungalow is set within the garden of the property, outside the front door is an orange and a lemon tree - very handy at 'Tiffin' time. The kitchen, dining and living areas are open plan. The living area has an open fireplace. A dining area with table and chairs for 4. There are two bedrooms with double beds and a sofa bed if needed (sleeps 4 or 6).
