At about 700m from the closest beach, it's a small 10-15min walk until you get sand in your toes! If you don't feel like walking, the 12x8m swimming pool is very inviting (and clean!).
The apartment is fully equipped with the most common appliances (fridge w/ freezer, microwave, stove). But also with all the random accessories that one sometimes forgets, like a can opener or even an extension cord (!).
A 5min drive puts you in the restaurant/bar area of Praia da Rocha, 10min if you wish to go to Portimão by the river.
Lilia K. was very friendly, available and professional.
We love Praia Da Rocha and this apartment was just lovely. Compact and bijou, but had anything you needed.Close to the most amazingly beautiful beach and a host of terrific restaurants. You could also get a taxi to Alvor for even more restaurants. The Steak House and Vagabondos are well worth a visit or two.. .The people are so lovely and friendly, you feel you are amongst friends. 100% love it.

Our trip to Portugal, Portimao took place at the end of November 2014. I was worried about how the weather going to be like and if first aid is available since we traveled with 2 kids 4months old and 6 years old. We flight from Toronto to Lissabon around 7 hours. The flight was ok and we’ve got picked up at Airport by people we rent our place from and during 3 hours we’ve been placed to the apartment we’ve booked before. It was above our expectations. Lilia is very friendly and nice person, very detail oriented and client carrying. Apartment was clean, nice, big and very bright. It was an ocean view! Even though November wasn’t a vacation season, every day we woke up with rising sun and a spectacular view of ocean. Apartment is very cozy with needed furniture and every single needed supply in the kitchen! The kitchen was fully packed including microwave, coffee machine, juice maker etc. Anything we needed for cooking we could find there. Even coffee, tea and sugar were in the kitchen, so we don’t have to shop for our first hours There was a washing machine so we can do our laundry if kids clothes got dirty. Also, we’ve been provided with all blankets, towels, pillows, even baby crib was there, that was surprise for us because this wasn’t discussed before. The beach (actually the widest beach on south part - Praia de Rocha) was in walking distance, so we had very nice walks when the weather was good. We had only a week there but every day we went to see something new thanks to Lilia who organized those trips for us. The vacation was above our expectations since we got all information we needed and the hospitality if this people was on high level. We already booked our next trip to Portugal for summer time so we can see this beautiful country again!
