“Beautiful apartment with stunning views, highly recommended.”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

First time in Portugal, and we got really lucky with this apartment. It's very spacious, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a balcony with views of the ocean. The morning sunrises were a big highlight for me! The apartment has everything you need including wi-fi, 2 tvs, a hairdryer, towels, coffee machine, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, etc. It really is a home from home.

The complex itself is very well maintained, the pool area is lovely and the tennis courts are great fun.

I would recommend this apartment to friends or a family group.
It is situated on the hill, but the walk up and down is lovely and only takes 10 mins to walk into the old town.

“Great apartment in well maintained complex”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment is amply sized, well equipped and the best part is the marvellous view over the town and beach. The view is delivered in part due to the apartment's elevated position and it is a bit of a climb back from the old town square but it's worth it.

“Fantastic apartment...with the 'best' sea view”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was a brilliant holiday, it was our first time in Portugal and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodation or the location.

The apartment is huge and comfortable with great air-conditioning and 2 bathrooms. Beds are comfy and little touches thought of like a hair-dryer and beach towels. The friendly, helpful management staff were on hand, should you have any queries.

The pool area was beautiful, very clean with sunbeds and parasols

Location: Just to be really clear, the accommodation is at the top of a hill however it only takes 10-15 minutes and is a nice walk down into the old town square or the beach. It could be difficult unless fairly fit, to walk back up the hill. Don't let this put you off as taxis are easy to find and reasonably priced.

We had an amazing week and would definitely recommend the property and hopefully visit again.

“Beautiful apartment in a lovely location - would highly recommend.”
Reviewed July 2, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Having just returned from a long weekend stay (a group of two couples) I can't recommend this property highly enough. The amenities are great (well equipped kitchen, modern & clean bathrooms, large bedrooms plus a good sized balcony) and the overall complex was perfect if you're looking for a quiet place to relax in the sun. The swimming pool was very clean and large enough so it didn't get overcrowded, and handily the snack bar served good value snacks from 10:00 - 18:00 daily.
A ten minute walk downhill towards the town takes you to a beautiful beach (lifeguards present - €13 per day for 2 × sun longer + parasol hire)) peppered with restaurants and bars. A further five minute walk takes you to the main square and for those wanting livelier nightlife on to the strip.
We didn't find the walk back up to the complex a problem (it was great for walking off evening meals) however those with walking difficulties would possibly struggle as one short section in particular was a little steep.
The apartment manager (Jan) lives locally and was extremely helpful in terms of providing directions and assisting with airport transfers etc.
We would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a quiet relaxing stay in a truly lovely apartment.

Liked best: The location of the apartment was great - 10 min walk into town but far enough away so that the complex was quiet.

“Lovely spacious apartment with beautiful views.”
Reviewed May 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely stay at Windmill hill as a family of four.

The apartment itself was very spacious and the views were really beautiful. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed including beach towels and a cleaner visited a couple of times during our stay. The balcony is great for eating on and had sun in the morning which went off about 2pm. It was great with a crawling baby as the only steps are the ones are a couple up to the aprtment. The complex itself is very well maintained with a good sized pool and a fantastic bar.

On a personal level it was disappointing that there was a noisy stag do there for a few days during our stay, the first one one of the residents had ever seen, and surprising considering we were tackled twice by the manager once to ask if we were staying there and secondly for parking a pram under the shade of a tree near the pool.

Also be prepared that as in the name you are on a hill- we quite liked the exercise but if you have a pram the main way into town/ beach involves a lot of
steps which can be avoided via a slightly longer route. The middle of the old town is quite commercialised but there are still lots of more traditional places tucked away.
