“lovely apartment”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very nice and clean apartment with everything you need, hair dryer, iron, washer, etc. Geoff and Lynne made it very easy with all the information they forwarded - directions, emergency phone numbers, where beach is, local bars. The complex is very well kept, very clean, shame that the bar/restaurant by the pool area is now closed.
We only went for a week and thought we wouldn't hire a car, we wish we had alot of up hill walking and the town very spread out. We used taxi alot to get around to get town/shops. Very peaceful area.
We would go again but have a car.

“Perfect place to stay for a perfect holiday”

The apartment was everything we wanted. Spacious, clean, comfortable, light and airy. Lovely kitchen and bathrooms. We had lots of bbqs on the balcony. The swimming pool was lovely and we made the most of it. The nearby beach was beautiful and had a lovely beach bar. We hired a car and visited all the nearby beaches and the old town. So many restaurants....we were lost for choice. Geoff and Lynne were very helpful and gave us lots of information which came in very useful. All in all a perfect place to stay for a perfect holiday

“Nice break out the way”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were looking for a pool, nice accommodation and a short walk to town. We found a lovely pool, good, spacious accommodation but not such a short walk to town.
The closest beach was beautiful but they don't cater very well for children and neither do Praia grande but the sports bar by the closest shop is good/ok but the best place we found locally was the restaurant at Hotel Maritur. The staff are great, food is amazing value and prices are cheap.

“Excellent modern apartment with everything you need”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed here for 12 days and had a fantastic time, from the minute we booked the apartment Geoff and Lynne looked after everything for us. The apartment is very clean and modern throughout, very child friendly as we had 2 young children with us and had everything you would need. We ate in for lunch most days and made use of the bbq and balcony on a few evenings. The area is quiet, but still has some wonderful restaurants, praia grande our fav ! The local beach at sao rafael is an easy 5 min walk and is one of the best beaches I've been to in the algarve. The complex has a decent size swimming pool with plenty of sun beds. Thanks again for making our stay at your lovely apartment so great, we hope to be back again over the coming years

“Lovely, clean spacious aprtment, near beautiful beach”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed for 10 days with our two teenage daughters. The apartment was beautifully clean and looked like a new kitchen had recently been fitted. Kitchen utensils / pans etc were also lovely and clean as was the whole apartment.
Apartment was plenty big enough for 4 adults - balcony with barbeque was lovely in the evenings.
Ice box was a god send for the beach days.
Beaches within walking distance were beautiful and if you are happy to just stay in one place then it is fine. We like to explore so hired a car for a week. (we have been told it is cheaper to book this before travelling). The hire company dropped the car at the hotel opposite (new one Atlantia (I think)).
We took in alot of beaches - our favourites being Benegil with lovely big waves in a little cove, Marinha - both towards Carvoeiro
Inland we visited Alte and Silves - pretty villages. Silves has a lovely castle you can get a great view from.
Vale De Lobo - towards faro on the coast is worth a visit just to look at the amazing houses that you can't afford !
It was our first visit to Portugal and we will definately return. The climate is amazing - cool and night and in the mornings then heats up as the day goes on.
Highly recommended.
