“Superb apartments for that quiet getaway”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This was my first trip to Portugal but my partner had stayed at Flor Do Vale previously.
We were met by Fernando the Manager who showed us to our room. The ground floor twin room had a patio and stepped out onto the pool area. The apartment was spacious and clean (Lurdes did an excellent cleaning job every day) and ideal for us.
Flor Do Vale is approximately 4km from Albufeira but it is so quiet at the complex (for first few days there was only us and another couple staying above us), this is definitely a place to stay if you are looking for somewhere peaceful to recharge the old batteries.
There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance (we did have a car to sight see), recommended of the Restaurants is A Casa do Avo which is approx 1km from the apartments. Please do try this restaurant if you like seafood, it is a little gem!
We used the swimming pool almost every day, which was slightly chilly but ok once you got used to it.
Overall, a fantastic break at a fantastic destination. I would totally recommend Flor Do Vale to anyone wanting to get away from it all for a while. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Try to get a ground floor room for easy access to the pool area

Went back again for our second visit of the year. Wonderful weather, beautiful beaches and great food in the Restaurants of the Village. The Apartments, grounds and pool are kept immaculate by Fernando and the excellent Lurdes. Looking forward to next year.

As for a number of years we keep returning so Fernando and housekeeper Lurdes must be getting it right. Nothing is too much trouble for them, the apartments are excellent and very spacious, great restaurants nearby the "Sunflower" being just one of them, not forgetting the coffee and cake shop for a snack and of course the great weather.

We went in September for almost 3 weeks for our honeymoon, just what we needed, had a very hectic year and needed to unwind. Fernando and Lurds were always helpful and very nice people, as Fernando said to us one day " Are we enjoying our little oasis ", and that is what it felt like. We are hoping to return again in 2011 and we know that it will be just as lovely and welcoming as it was in September. Fernando had a bottle of wine and a bottle of bubbly chilled ready for us, as well as, fresh ffruit and fresh Lillies, what a way to start our honeymoon. The apartment was lovely and clean and light and airy, bed changed twice a week, towels changed everyother day. Just out of Albufeira but we walked there a few times, then hired a car to go further a field. 2 really nice restaurants in walking distance, one at each end of the lane. All in all we were very impressed and are highly recommending it to family and friends. Thank you Fernando and Lurds for your thoughtfullness and hospitality, Linda and Lester Goddard.

Excellent place for a truly peaceful chill out in nice surroundings good size pool and plenty of sunbeds,tables and chairs. The apartment was of a good size having all you need with a small equipped kitchen piping hot water all day long. Lurdes the maid keeps the hole place spotless they are the cleanest apartments we have ever been to and we went as the season was nearly over. Fernando was very helpful and accommodating to all our needs yet leaving us to our own space.

We will have no hesitation in recommending Flor do Vale to all our friends or any one who reads my review. Many thanks Fernando for the seven Sun filled days

What's not to like? If you're looking for a complete rest with peace and quiet from morning 'til night then this is the place for you. There's no bar or restaurant, but several within a few minutes walk .Gale beach is just under 2km from the front door .The apartments are spotless. You're given your own front door key and the code for the electronic gates ...the pool area is beautiful with plenty of sun loungers, although for the week we stayed there were never more than 6 people using them! We had a one bedroom apartment with balcony and found it was perfect for us. The furniture is a little dated I suppose, but dont let this put you off from visiting this little gem! A car is recommended .We'll certainly be back!

Loved this place. No under 16's meant this was a completely relaxing stay. Peace and quiet by the pool, no night time noise, no loud music. Fernando keeps the whole complex immaculate, and is available everyday should you have any questions. Maid service everyday except Wednesday. Nearest restaurant and bar a 2 minute walk with excellent food. Plenty of other restaurants and bars within 10 minutes walking distance. Beaches in this area are stunning, you could walk within about 30 mins but we hired a car for the week when we booked with Style Holidays. This is not a place for people who want wild nightlife or shopping trips. It's a totally chill out place more suited to older travellers.
Can't wait to go back.
