“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

Stayed here for 10 days in May - weather was a bit mixed and we still had a great stay so that shows you how good this place is. Unlike some properties where you feel hemmed in, this place has a lovely isolated and upmarket feel to it with great sea views.

Downstairs the kitchen is perfectly kitted out although we used the excellent outside gas barbecue for most cooking. Big Fridge/Freezer for your provisions.

The lounge is large with 2 seater sofa and a couple of arm chairs. The TV has full sky/bt sports package.

Upstairs the bedroom and bed is big and comfortable and a large bathroom en suite with 2 sinks and spa bath. Shower is in downstairs bathroom. Plenty of wardrobe space. The bedroom also has a balcony with comfy chairs and a great view of the sea - a great place to sip on your G&T

Decking has great hot tub and comfortable sun beds for lazing away the day. Access to the pool is straight from the deck - the pool was great and warm enough (just) for a good swim in May.

The view from the property is amazing - few other houses in sight and the sea is so blue - could stare at that view for hours!

No hesitation in returning and we probably will !

“A beautiful apartment in a beautiful location”
Reviewed March 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We've just returned from 6 nights in this lovely, spacious apartment. The facilities are impeccable ...kitchen, bathrooms, bedroom, living space and balcony plus a garden with sun loungers and a gate straight on to the pool in a beautiful garden with views over the ocean.

We can't recommend it highly enough.

“Great Place”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A real great find. My wife and I got a few days away from the kids and this place was ideal. The area is quiet but not too far from it all, just a short stroll to the beach. The apartment/villa was modern, comfy and well furnished. The facilities were fantastic too. If parenthood allows we would plan to stay here again! Highly recommended..

“Great accommodation in quiet and idyllic setting”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

For a quiet and relaxing break in the Algarve this is the place to go. With high spec and spacious accommodation featuring large living room, bedroom, 2 bathrooms and kitchen inside and balcony, dining area, hot tub, sun lounger area and barbecue outside you have everything you need. You also have access to a 20 metre pool shared by 6 apartments although when we were there no-one else used the pool.
Our favourite walk was to the inland beach restaurant in Quinta do Lago through the Ria Formosa which was both unusual and stunning. Walks through Val do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are great but you should use the car to locate a start point. The bridge across the Ria Formosa to the beach from Quinta do Lago is amazing and takes you to a long quiet stretch of beach going east to Faro and west to Val do Lobo. We will definitely return to this accommodation in future.

“Beautiful private villa just a stroll from the beach”
Reviewed February 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2014

The villa was very well furnished and in excellent condition. The complex was very quiet during our stay and ideal for couples looking for a romantic retreat. We put the private BBQ deck to good use and enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. The upstairs balcony was ideal for an evening drink with a stunning view of the ocean for sunset. We had a rental car which made supermarket shopping and golf course visits in the surrounding area very convenient. In all, a beautiful villa that we hope to visit again next year.

“Nice duplex apartment for a romantic couple”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

This duplex apartment is very nice! Although some small things that should be better maintained. For example: the Jacuzzi was not working properly, sun umbrella was broken, the sofa bed was missing some “springs”… Nothing very important, but due to the price charged, shouldn’t happen!
Car is absolutely necessary. Except to enjoy the beach! It is a walking distance from the complex. It is situated in a great quiet zone, but quite remote for everyday life. Do not expect nightlife or social interactions.There are no coffee shops, supermarket, restaurants, shops… nearby.
The apartment complex is very well managed, with an excellent concept. 24h/7 Guarded. Friendly neighbors!
Everything went well with renting, including check in and check out, and where the owner has always remained available for questions and help.
Due to the sofa-bed conditions and the clarity that erupts every morning in the living / dining room where the kids sleep, we consider appropriate for a couple only.
Wi-Fi and cable TV available.
