Karl Dubost of W3C went to Casa Barretto last March and wrote an interesting account of his stay on his website. He took fantastic pictures of the Barretto scene: the market, the people, and the public beaches at Baloy and Driftwood. Here you will have some idea of Barretto, the village.

His entries on Barretto are in French. Karl Dubost at Barretto:
