“Excellent winter-break”

My husband and I have just returned from a very relaxing winter break in apartment Magnifico in Albufeira.
The booking/payment processes were all handled in a most friendly and service orientated manner by Philippa who promptly responded to all our queries.
Transfer from/to the airport was completely hassle-free and exactly on time.
The meet and greet at the apartment was efficient and welcoming. As we arrived quite late in the evening the basic requirements from our little shopping list had been purchased for us at a very reasonable fee.

When we first entered the apartment we were immediately struck by its size. It is even larger than what we assumed based on the pictures.
The apartment is in an excellent location. The views from both the living room and the master bedroom are the best you could imagine and having no-one living opposite, no need to draw the curtains. At dawn Albufeira turns the most beautiful shade of pink!

The steady Wi-Fi connection is an added bonus as is the satellite television.

Thanks for a very enjoyable holiday!!

Had a great holiday with our friends. The apartment had everything we could have wanted, and the views were fabulous.
Enjoyed sitting with a glass of wine looking over the old town.
No shortage of places to eat nearby and the beach was great.
All transport was arranged for us, contributing to a stress free very enjoyable break.

We had a fantastic time at Apartment Magnifico, we have been to a couple of other apartments previously and this was by far the best. It is close to the Old town for an abundance of restaurants and only a few minutes to the beach.

It is a large spacious apartment with everything you could wish for. It is not only large inside but has two large balconies for sunbathing on with the sun loungers provided or eating alfresco at the large outdoor dining table. It is that good we booked again for next year!

“Fantastic holiday in a wonderful place!”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We really enjoyed our holiday and did not want to come home!

This apartment is lovely, overlooking the old town - the views are amazing and we couldn't believe how much space we had.

We couldn't fault anything and everything we needed was there.

The taxi service Philippa organised for us was first class and we couldn't thank her enough for making our transfers to & from the apartment stress free. The drivers were very pleasant people.

We had lovely weather and managed to fit in various activities such as quad biking, jet skiing, paragliding and a jet boat trip along the coast exploring the caves. The beach is lovely and only a stone's throw away, although the balconies are ideal for sunbathing and are equipped with 4 sun-loungers and chairs, getting the sun from late morning 'til evening.

The last time we went to Portugal was over 25 years ago - it has changed quite a lot since then. We couldn't believe how busy it was, especially in the evenings. Our favourite restaurants were The Bistro, Il Brigante and Casa de fonte.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and if returning to Albufeira in the future we would certainly be in touch with Philippa again.

“Almost perfect Apartment- will be booking again”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

There were 6 of us. Me, husband, two kids, my mum and dad. Apartment within walking distance of beach and old town. Views fantastic.

Clean, well equipped. All mod cons. Nice communal pool.

We all enjoyed the holiday and apartment. If I were to be really picky we would have liked more than just Sky News on the TV, but who goes on holiday to watch telly?

Happy to recommend. Good value for money. Will be coming back in the next couple of years.
