On Nov. 29, 2021, we received the following review about Samonatura:
It is a great location “on the mountain” as we called it. We were in the house Arco Iris, very spacious and well equipped. The hot tub, sauna, pool and the beautiful vegetation on the property completed the stay. The owners Martine and Jos make you feel very welcome and take care of this place with heart and soul. In the evening we could grab wood to cozy the fireplace. The village of Vila Nova de Milfontes is a few km away and is a pleasant starting point for a nice coastal walk. We will definitely go back there again!
