We stayed September 2012 for 7 days for €200. excellent value. the apartment is reasonable in size for couple + 9 month old. there were 4 beds total. 3 singles up stairs in what we would call the attic, they were kind of dark with just 1 skylight. However they would be ideal for kids as the door into rooms upstairs were like something out of movies, 3 ft high!!!!
Downstairs we had a large bathroom and main double bed. kitchen come sitting room with washing machine microwave and all the utensils + 2 ring hob. we had a small balcony which gets sun in afternoon and evening and faces the Pingo Doce shopping centre just a stones throw away. We for the first time washed clothes on holiday and its caught on, we can bring half the bag of clothes now and with the weather clothes dry in couple hours particularly babies clothes. It is a short 5 minute walk from the main pedestrian street in the town. Area felt very safe and was well lit for being on outskirts of the town. Pool was quite at end of season but was clean, plenty of sun loungers.
Some nice coffee shops close by with coffee just €1 if you walk the short walk over to Pingo Doce look to your left, this is where locals come to have a coffee cigarette and a beer. Very comfortable. It's at opposite end of town to the beach so walk there is like a good half hour.
We had a great time we have booked again for June 2013 for 10 days for €300. Like everything if you are bringing a few kids its reasonable, clean comfortable, very safe, close to big shopping centre and short walk from town.
