“Very nice place to stay”
Reviewed November 2, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Lovely and comfortable appartment to stay in and very well located in Faro center with a lot of nice restaurants within 5 to 10 minutes walk. We had a car and could park easily except during the Feira de Santa Iria (20 to 29 October this year) during which the area was very crowded. Some noise until midnight during the Feira but this was part of the local atmosphere. After the Feira ended, we could enjoy the area which is very quiet. The apartment has a nice view and pictures reflect reality. Faro is a great place to stay to visit the central part of Algarve. One week is not enough! Hope to be back soon as we did enjoy our stay tremendously. The weather also was terrific. Everything perfect!

Date of stay: October 2017

“Relaxing Getaway”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The apartment was very nice, and very close to the shops/restaurants and the bus and train station. The apartment is near the cathedral so you can hear the bell chime the hour and half hour.The flat is situated near the landing path for the airport, neither of these was a problem for us. There is an issue with the electricity that you cannot have the air conditioning on if you are using the oven or the washing machine as the fuse trips, we found this to be an inconvenience. There isn't a computer room as advertised but we had our smart phones. Overall we had a lovely stay in Faro.

Dear John,
Thank you very much for your review.

Actually, the computer room (after the single room, the room with a terrace), is the place where you can switch on your computer, my office was there before.

All of my best wishes,
Catarina

“Great location for visiting Faro and surrounding area”
Reviewed June 22, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

We stayed one week in order to visit Ria Formosa, Faro and nearby towns and found the location ideal. Loved the area as felt we were with the local residents rather than all tourists. Trip to the Islands was brilliant to a unique area. The storks were nesting on many of the nearby buildings. The train trips to Olhao and Travira were good ( as Seniors show your passport and get reduced prices). The Apartment has all you need for a short stay. Catarina pre booked us a Taxi to the Airport as there are no nearby ranks which was a great help.

“Fantastic Faro”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

If you are looking for a relaxing break then Faro is ideal. We loved our stay at this apartment. The location was fantastic only 10 minutes from the airport and conveniently situated for the old town, shopping, the harbour and restaurants. If like us you intend spending most of your time exploring then I would highly recommend this home from home apartment. The owner is so helpful and that is a big plus!

“Beautifully located, sun-drenched and comfy digs”
Reviewed March 25, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

We are two seniors who stayed in Catarina's apartment for the full month of March, 2017. The apartment commands a terrific location close to the ancient walls of the beautiful old city, overlooking the red rooftops and old bell tower (complete with a stork's nest) of Largo Sao Francisco. Free parking is available closeby and good restaurants abound. The apartment is well furnished, kitchen is adequately equipped. Wi-fi could be tricky but was up for the most part. Catarina herself was prompt and helpful with communications. The apartment is spacious and light, located near a little market that makes at-home food preps a breeze. Despite these considerable strengths, here were two sources of irritation for us. First was our huge frustration in being able to locate Catarina's apartment. We arrived in Faro after a lengthy and exhausting 2-days of travel from Canada, through San Miguel and Lisboa. We were driving a rental vehicle on our first visit to Faro. Despite my best efforts to download easy maps for us to follow (and Catarina's Michelin map), the conflagrations, one-way streets, streets with different names in the old city, our difficulty as non-Portuguese speakers.... had us flummoxed to the point that I was in tears. We could not receive assistance from any of those we asked, even when we showed them the spot on the map we wanted to reach. I have suggested to Catarina that with out of town drivers arriving at her place, direct them to follow the extremely well posted signs for centro, then the marina or ancient city. Once parked in those spots, it's an easier 5 minute walk to Catarina's. Second, we found it difficult upon arrival not to have many essentials required by travellers. There were 2 tiny travel samples of soap & shampoo, and one roll of toilet paper. There were no cleaning gels available despite our one-month rental period, so we ended up having to purchase these goods. I feel that if greater attention could be devoted to these two issues (which are not, after all, difficult), the apartment would rate a full 5 stars.

Dear Judith,
For the price charged, I cannot afford to have more shampoo, gel and other amenities, I hope to have your understanding.

I hope to welcome you again in Faro or Lisbon city, where I have another nice apartment.

All of my best wishes,
Catarina
