“Great apartment with nice pool and 10 minute walk from beautiful beach!”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent 9 nights in this apartment - which is very well-equipped, clean and homely. It also has a lovely balcony with a sea view! There is use of several pools, all of which are nicely landscaped, clean and include a toddler pool for little ones. The local beach is beautiful, and only a 10 minute walk away.... However, the walk home takes a little longer as its up hill!! There are some lovely local restaurants and a well-stocked supermarket. The local water park (aqua land) was a huge hit with our children too (1 and 4). Cathy, the owner, is also very helpful and responds to emails very quickly.

“Great apartment in a lovey part of the Algarve”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

Just returned from two weeks' stay in this great apartment. It was very spacious for two of us and is very well kitted out with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. The kitchen has everything you could require, including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The apartment is bright and airy during the day and cosy once the sun goes down. We very much enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of Vihno Verde watching the lovely sunsets. Being February, a lot of the restaurants were closed for the holidays, but even so, there were still plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. The coastline between Armacao de Pera and Cavoiero is probably the nicest part of the Algarve and we highly recommend walking the coastal path (sturdy shoes recommended!) to see the lovely beaches, some of which are only accessible by foot. Armacao de Pera is a lovely little town with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and is approximately 20 minutes' walk from the apartment. This is an ideal base from which to explore the Algarve at its best.

“Lovely apartment - lovely location!”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We enjoyed our stay tremendously! The apartment is located in a quiet part of the town of Armacao de Pera, yet restaurants, beaches and a supermarket are close at hand. Amenities are at walking distance, as are the local beaches. Towns like Carvoeiro, Albufeira and Portimao can be reached within 30 minutes by car. Boattrips to the coastal caves, nice, secluded bays (Benagil), lots of activities to undertake.
The weather in October was nice and warm, a great time to get away from the rain and cold in autumn in western Europe.
The apartment itself has everything you can think of (see the owner's description), and more. A really nice balcony to enjoy your breakfast (or lunch, or dinner, or whatever): sun all day long. Even a spacious rooftop terrace is available. Good beds and a kitchen with all the equipment you might need, and a bathroom with a bath and a very good shower.
We'd love to go back some time ...

“Great apartment in a great location!”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Just back form Armacao de Pera after spending five nights there with friends. Cathy was brilliant and there to met us on our first day. She was always just a phone call or text away if you needed her and she gave us some great recommendations for local restaurants and a great pub for a night out ( A Rampa in Porches three delicious courses for 12euro including wine! and AlPendre owned by Marianna and Adelino in Armacao) The Intermarche is only five minutes away and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Beaches, cliffs and restaurants and everything else is nearby too. Lovely comfortable beds with plenty of linen, loads of fresh towels and beach towels, hot water and a great shower together with a great gas stove for cooking and a well equipped kitchen. We will definitely be back!

Thank you so much for the great review. I'm always trying to improve the apartment - today I bought a travel cot, a chess set and more stuff for the kitchen. I am also crocheting cushions for the sun-chairs! (Photos soon!) Cathy

“Nice apartment in a good location”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This apartment has plenty of extras such as beach towels, books, DVDs plus washing machine and dryer which meant we could travel with just hand luggage - a major bonus. It's walking distance to shops, restaurants and several good beaches so no need to hire a car, but if you want to get about (Vilamoura, Aqualand, golf etc.) you can hire one easily. All the local restaurants we tried were good; some offer a great value tourist menu (12.50 Euro for three courses plus wine) and the food is all fresh and generally charcoal grilled. Would recommend this for families.

The apartment has everything one needs for a relaxing holiday and is fully appointed. There are fine pools nearby which the children loved. The beaches are great and not too far away. Plenty of good restaurants and things to do locally.
