Myself and my sister and three children (ages 12, 15 & 20) stayed in this apartment just over a week ago. This apartment is possibly the best apartment I have ever stayed in . It is in a quite location with everything you could possibly need in the apartment including the all important Wifi and Air conditioning. The apartment itself is spacious and spotless. The pool just outside the gate was great as the kids could go back and forth with ease. The patio area was great and sunbeds are provided and can be moved out to the pool area.Vitor met us on arrival and we met him quite a few times in and out of the apartment block, himself and Michelle are great. We walked to Falesia Square which is only a five minute walk away, it has a local cafe that serves the best coffee, pastries and toasted sambos. Prices here are incredibly cheap, €2 for coffee and a pastry, €2 for toasted sambo. There are a few restaurants in the square and a lovely italien just outside the square. Prices here are reasonable. Booking a taxi is a bit more complicated but we found if you go to the Tourist Office outside the Square, you can book taxi's ahead of time. Also we used uber alot due to the location. Taxi's to Villamora and the Old Town were approx €15 - €20 euro one way depending on the time of day or evening. All in all, we had a great time and I will be returning. Thanks Vitor and Michelle
Our family (2 adults + 3 children) had a fabulous holiday here July 2018. The apartment was spotless and exactly as per pictures. The Square which was 5 mins walk is lovely with nice restaurants and child friendly atmosphere. The beach is a short walk away also. Pool is nice and quiet had it to ourselves majority of the time. Michelle and Viktor were great and had no problems at all on our holiday. We were sad to leave but hopefully will return in the near future. Would highly recommend.
The apartment was spacious and very modern & clean. It was big enough for all 5 of us (2 of whom are over 6ft) so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other.
The apartment had everything we could need, except it would have been nice for a welcome pack of basic essential like milk, eggs, bread, water, to be offered as an extra as our flight didn't get in till late in the eve and no shops open at that time, for which wouldn't have minded paying a little extra.
The owner Michelle was very helpful with the booking & any questions that I had relating to an extra bed etc.
The outside patio area is a lovely size and the pool is only a few feet away, my children loved going in it late afternoon when it warmed up slightly. The outside space is lovely for just sitting & soaking up the sun.
We arrived on a sat eve, & the owner had Texted to say that there was a BBQ in the square that night, it was brill, eat as much as you like and house red & white wine plus dessert all for €15 pp was abs brill, must try the grilled sardines, so tasty.
The apartment is located about 25min from Albuferia & Vilamoura (make sure you visit the marina) The local beach is about 10min walk there is a short cut which takes you past the grand Epic Sana hotel and down the steps to a glorious beach... Just wow!
The square which is about 8-10 min walk has a few eateries and a few gift shops, a supermarket which has just about everything you need, do try the fresh croissant & bread but you'll have to go early!
You don't really need a car, we used a few of the taxi firms listed in the apartment, fab service & not too expensive considering there were 5 of us.
We will definitely come back again!
