We've stayed in various villas in Vale da Telha and this was one of the best - very clean, quiet location, great views towards the sea and with a secluded garden and pool. We also appreciated that the outdoor dining area was sheltered from the wind, which is hard to find in this area! Highly recommended.

Just up the hill (5 min in car)from the beach( cafe,surf school) on the edge of quiet residential town...small food shop and some eating places. You have to do the 15-20 min drive to Aljezur for more amenities...but still low key. Longer drive to south coast for bigger tourist attractions. Housekeeper very helpful and owner keen to offer a nice,relaxing...

About the neighbourhood
Sandhills is situated within the Costa Vicentina National Park, where peace and tranquillity reign supreme. The most usual background sounds are birdsong and the crashing of waves on the pristine beaches.

Declared a protected area The National Park boasts rolling hills, marshland, imposing cliffs, rocky coves and beautiful beaches ranging from broad expanses of sand to tiny inaccessible coves. Sports anglers flock to the Costa Vicentina to fish the waters rich in sea bass, dory, conger eels and bream. The area is also a surfer's paradise. The unbroken waves rolling in from the Atlantic are perfect for training and perfecting surfing skills. Even in the height of the summer season you can find almost deserted beaches along this coastal paradise. And the sunsets are breathtaking.
