A very nice, small scale, place where they take very well care of their guests. Sylvia and Matthijs create an informal atmosphere where you feel at home. On Tuesday and Friday they cook themselves; highly recommended!
This stunning B&B has 7 rooms and three apartments, a garden, self service bar, pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast and lunch served everyday in the terrace We put our daughter to bed and enjoyed the excellent dinner on Tuesday and Friday. The Dutch hosts love their work and will give you advice on daytrips and beautiful beaches.
Sylvia and Matthijs(Dutch Owned but both speak perfectly good English) are lovely and there hospitality second to none, friendly and helpful! This is a small 7 apartment guest house with outside Pool and Jacuzzi, public bar on trust, just leave your room number and what you have had from the bar! Breakfasts were fantastic and set you up for the day as most people hire a car who stay here as its 15km from Albuferia and around 25KM to Faro airport where you can hire a car ! We were meeting up with a couple from Holland and hiring a car together ! This was a most enjoyable holiday, with Matthijs help on the local towns and beaches, we visited some lovely places and even went to the St-Tropez of Portugal which is the Marina town of Vilamoura , the old fishing village of Alburferia and one of the top ten beaches in the world and many small unheard of interesting places including a town full of many artists and a museum in the middle of the mountains. ! When we were flying home, Matthijs even made us a full packed breakfast as we were leaving the early hours of the morning, so thoughtful! We will be going back most definitely as it was a great BASE to plan different places to visit every day and so much to see! They also do two evening meals a week, which is a 4 course meal for 35 euros, which was excellent! Oh and the BEDS, they were so comfortable, you just don't want to get out! You are in the wilds here, so hearing owls all night, the cockerels at sunrise is all part of the magic at Casa Porta Azul! Mark And Bev. ...XXX…
We enjoyed our 3 nights stay at Casa Porta Azul! Great room with nice private terrace. (Room 4). Excellent swimming pool, fantastic breakfast. Great familiair atmosphere. If you don't want to stay in the crazyness of Albufeira but nice and still close go here!
Our second visit and stay at Casa Porta Azul is also fab. The hospitality offered by Sylvia and Matthijs is great and difficult to find elsewhere. The accommodation is well maintained with a large, beautiful garden complete with swimming pool. Ideal for couples as well as for families. Sylvia's cooking is not to be missed (2 times/week). The location is well situated for trips exploring the Algarve.
