Casa de CouraRecommended by 100% of our customers (1 reviews)
Overall the villa was very nice and ideal for our large group of mixed ages. Having a pool, table tennis and games room was excellent. Being very rural it had Lovely views too. Rosa, the housekeeper, was very sweet and helpful.
The kitchen was in serious need of updating. Although equipped with plenty of plates and cups it seriously lacked certain basic items like a potato peeler, scissors and decent coffee machine (it had 4 but quite dated and no instructions). The main issue was the terrible oven. All the temperatures and settings were completely worn away so it was impossible to know what it was set on. After a week we still hadn’t worked it out. Being a chef and eager to cook I found it very annoying. There was only one rack for it too and no insert rack for the grill so a lot of burnt fingers!
Although the place was clean we couldn’t use the table mats from the dining room as they were covered in tiny black mites.
I also found a little mouse on the floor by the dining room table. He seemed to be dying (possibly due to poison) so I managed to catch it and release it into the garden. My sister who has a phobia of mice wasn’t too happy. I do realise that older houses in the country can have mice!
Finally, we did laugh at the lack of working lightbulbs in the house. If you have a chandelier type light with 12 bulbs you’d expect more then 1 or 2 to work on it.
