About The Owner

I live in Yorkshire and we really love to get away to to the sun and our spacious apartment. We both work in financial services and enjoy the relaxed way of living Portugal offers.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Vale Navio

I have owned the property from new and the reason for buying in Balaia is that it ticks all the boxes.

The location is geographically ideal and Balaia itself could not be better.It is near to restuarants,shops, beaches and is only 30 minutes from the airport.

Balaia is a perfect destination, beautifully designed with low density in mind and all the ammenieties you should need. Swimming pools, tennis courts. 9 hole golf course and driving range,24 hour reception and restuarants.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is a 2 bedroomed apartment however, it is one of the most spacious apartments you will ever experience.

Its situation on the 2nd floor with balconies round over half the property and views towards the ocean is probably the best on the Balaia.

It is extremely well equipped and has been refurbished for 2016.

Guestbook comments from the owner
