The Perfect Family Holiday in the Algarve!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful apartment for our week long holiday for so many reasons!

Excellent, convenient location. We walked everywhere: to the beach, to the store, to the restaurants! And if you are up for a day trip, drive to Seville, Spain. Only 2 hours from here and so worth the experience!

Friendly building and neighbours.

The photos are deceiving...in a GOOD way! The apartment is much bigger than the photos show, bright, open and well laid out. We ate outside on the balcony most evenings (when we weren't out for dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants nearby) and enjoyed many sunsets.

The grounds were clean and well maintained.

And Margaret was so welcoming and helpful! She gave us maps and recommendations and even lent us a stroller (pram) for our son to use for the week.

The only drawback was the linens in the bedroom: they were very musty and I had to wash and air them out before we used them.

An all around amazing vacation and we will be back!

Clean and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well maintained property. The location is ideal for getting to the best beaches in the Algarve, in our opinion, away from the loud noise and traffic of downtown A. De Pera but only a short 5 minute drive if you want to be in the center of it. We're only giving 4 stars instead of 5 as the AC didn't work while we were there (which we knew before renting). Otherwise it would be 5 stars. Truly a great property in terms of cleanliness and location!
