“Good centre for exploring Eastern Algarve”

Close (walking distance) to the town centre, Ria Formosa park, and all the shops at the Forum Algarve shopping mall. The apartment was a little noisy at times, both from neighbours and external traffic, particularly for someone who lives out in the country, but we got used to it. Marta was extremely helpful and friendly, and picked us up and took us back to the airport, which was really helpful. A welcome basket of fruit and even wine, was a nice touch, and there were plenty of things like tea bags, sugar etc. A minor problem with the oven was dealt with very quickly.

“Well-equipped apartment”
Reviewed November 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Marta picked us up at the bus station and drove us to the apartment (although the station is only about a 10 minute walk.) The apartment is a good-size with two dining tables - one in the dining area and another in the sunny breakfast room off of the kitchen. The kitchen was very functional and well-stocked with oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, and other essentials. (A large Jumbo supermarket is located in the Forum Mall, about a 15 minute walk, and Pingo Doce is across the street from the Mall.) The only problem was the water in the shower which was hard to adjust, but this was a minor issue. The washing machine worked well and there was a drying rack in the sunny, enclosed balcony off of the master bedroom

“Everything provided for easy stay”
Reviewed September 20, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here with my daughter and we were pleased with the apartment. It had every facility you could ever need and more not that we used them as we were out most of the time. Large spacious rooms and very clean. Marta herself was helpful and friendly. Just a 10 minute walk to the old town and harbour, bus and train stations. Albeit the flat is on the 7th floor the 2 lifts make it easy access. The one drawback I personally had was traffic noise on the first night though I live rural where it is so quiet and as such am not used to noise, the remaining nights were no problem for me. My daughter on the other hand had no problem sleeping as she lives in a town centre and is accustomed to it.

Great central location. Fabulous view. In walking distance to historic old town, which was lovely. Walking distance to all local shop and the shopping mal, The apartment was like home from home. Well stocked with everything you need. Very spacious, well maintained and very clean. There were nice little touchy Candles, fruit, cake and a bottle of wine. Marta the owner was amazing and very friendly. She gave us very useful information. She told us about a restaurant just around the corner called Chef Bronco. Lovely food and really cheap. Staff were very friendly. If you are a smoker there are 2 completely separate rooms, one smoking one non smoking. No smoke at all in the none smoking room. The local bus number 16 is right outside the apartment which takes you to the airport. About a 20 min journey for a couple of euros. Marta contacted us the day before we were due to land. She offered to pick us up at the airport, which we were really pleased about. We will definitely go back and would recommend Marta's flat for your stay in Faro.
