“Another Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is our third visit to Vista Bonita and another fantastic holiday. The apartment is as usual in pristine condition and the little finishing touches make it a real home from home. The complex , gardens and pool area are well maintained. Porches is a pretty little village with some lovely beaches and restaurants. We finished our holiday with a great meal at Belmondos!

“Fantastic stay at Vista Bonita”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our second visit and we had a fabulous time. The apartment and facilities are 5*. Sandra and Cecil really make this a home from home. Everything you need is provided. Porches is a lovely place to stay with beaches, walks and great restuarants in walking distance.

“5 Star Accommodation in a beautiful location!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a fantastic week's stay at Vista Bonita, it was just like staying in a 5 star hotel, but without the 5 star prices!!! It was very much a home from home and Sandra couldn't have been more helpful. Porches has everything you need, beautiful beaches and some very nice bars and restaurants. We had a very chilled out week, just took the cool box and parasol down to the beach in the day and had a lovely meal out in the evenings or just sat on the beautiful balcony, couldn't recommend this place more. We didn't even need a car! Can't wait to return!!

“5 STAR APARTMENT IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

As a previous guest had remarked in the guest book, Vista Bonita raises the bar for self catering accommodation. Well furnished and spotlessly clean the owners attention to detail is apparent as soon as you walk in. We felt extremely comfortable there and enjoyed the quiet almost rustic Algarvian atmosphere of the area whether out walking or sitting on one of the two balconies sipping a drink and looking down toward the sea. The location is great for touring the Algarve but no car is necessary if all you want to do is enjoy the local area. A supermarket , eight or ten restaurants and several sandy coves are all within 15-20 minutes strolling distance. Can't wait to go again!
