Because you can't have a year off travelling without having a little holiday or two, right?!
We had a lovely week with my brother and his family at Casa Jules in Portugal. The highlights for us were baby Henry becoming an internet sensation with his photo on the paddleboard, a nice meal out in Salir, a trip down an exciting track and a lovely three course meal cooked by the owners of the villa. We stayed in the van and enjoyed views of the hills in the distance, as well as the orange trees around us. We also had access to the pool shower and toilet which was a real treat! If you're looking for a family-friendly, relaxing place to stay in Portugal, Casa Jules is a villa I can highly recommend.
