Guests have outdoor designated sunbathing areas, sun loungers and patios with outdoor furniture (table, chairs) - the salt water pool is available to guests (shared). Car not necessary - easy to walk to the beaches, the beautiful coastal cliffs, Praia da Rocha hub of shops, night life/Casino and down town Portimão. The area has numerous good restaurants.

Lovely stay in a sunny climate..🌞🌞

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accommodations on the outskirts of Portimao and also a short drive to Alvor.

Isabel and Greg made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived.

The apartment has everything you would need..right down to the beach umbrella, beach towels and sunscreens, maps, books etc. It is very tidy & clean and the bed was very comfortable. The gardens and outdoor areas were very inviting after a day exploring the area. The grocery store was just around the corner and (thanks to the owners) we discovered a couple of lovely restaurants within walking distance. Some really gorgeous hiking on the coast near Benigal. We would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Such a pleasure to have met you and so glad you enjoyed the area. You mentioned Praia do Carvalho and Benagil area - lovely part of the coast. We hope you left some unseen spots for next time!

Car: not necessary

This is the perfect setting for a couple wanting to relax. Take advantage of the myriad restaurants, cafés, bars or picnics at the beach or cliffs.

Provided: Linens, towels (also for beach/pool), pillows, ironing board and iron. Extra towels provided. One weekly cleaning service for rentals over one week. Washing machine and clothes drying line. The property is landscaped: olive, citrus trees, bougainvillea, grapevines, etc.
