Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeks stay. The apartment is very spacious for a 1 bedroom apartment. It is in a fabulous location, very quiet and looks onto a lovely pool and garden area. It sits between 2 golf courses and it only a 20 minutes walk to the beach. Its only a few minutes walk to the nearest supermarket which has everything you need if you want to eat in the apartment. If you want dinner at any of the local restaurants then I'd recommend Monica's or Casa Pituxa. Basically you have everything you need in this apartment whether you want to relax in the garden or head further a field. If you like afternoon fun then head to BJ's Beachbar on a Wednesday, Friday or Sunday when they have a live band in the afternoon (although you need to book in advance). A really enjoyable holiday and would highly recommend the apartment and Vale do Lobo. My boyfriend who is more of a hotel fan, is now converted to self catering.

An ideal location for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 11th consecutive annual visit and like all previous it did not disappoint. The apartment was immaculate on arrival and has all the facilities which we needed. Television and wifi particularly impressive. With beaches, walks and first class restaurants all close by what more could one ask.

Great apartment, perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying in this lovely well equipped and clean apartment, it was a great location (just a 10 min cycle down to the beach and 5 min walk to a decent sized supermarket). The apartment was perfect for a family of four with 2 young kids with plenty of toys & games for them to play with in the garden and take to the beach. We were lucky to have some great weather in April and used the Tennis Academy swimming pool on a few occasions, where you can get your entrance money refunded off any food purchased - the lunch options were great. We would definitely recommend this great apartment, hopefully we will be back next year!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the apartment. It was in a quiet area & had everything we required. It was within walking distance of everything we needed, as in restaurants, beach & supermarket. The bed was very comfortable, which is always a plus for a restful break & would definitely book again.

Fantastic value in top quality resort

  • 5 of 5

This villa has a great position, within short walking distance to a really good supermarket and restaurants. Also is about 15-20 mins walk down to the main square (Praca) where all the restaurants, Beach and swimming pool are. We were a family of 4, with a baby so was perfect size for us. The owner, Stephen, kindly proved a cot and high chair free of charge I may also add. The villa was immaculate and had everything we needed to cater for our holiday and more importantly our baby. Stephen was extremely helpful every step of the way and answered any questions we had. He can also provide a welcome pack of food and drink at a small charge which again was essential when travelling with a family. We couldn't actually fault a single thing , and it was also priced very well during the main summer holidays. Would definitely use again. Highly recommend.

An oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you need for the perfect self catering holiday.The lawned garden is sunny all day and the sun loungers are comfy. The patio complete with dining table and upholstered chairs is sheltered from the rain so no need to dash indoors in a shower. A large pool with a cafe and bar is right opposite in landscaped gardens so the view is open and pretty plus there are tennis courts just below. Access to the pool is free with this apartment. There's a supermarket 5 minutes walk away and bars/restaurants about 15 minutes walk. A car is handy because of the great beaches, market towns and restaurants close by but we could manage without one if we didn't want to take advantage of the lovely walks and bird watching within 5 miles. There are several excellent golf courses right on the doorstep too.

The apartment is spotless, comfortable, well furnished and air conditioned/heated to suit the season. There's endless hot water, a full cooker and dishwasher plus a huge queen sized (or twin) bedroom. The lounge easily sleeps 2 more. Its ideal for a couple, a family of 4 or a group of golfers. Its home from home and the owners/gardener and cleaner make it a perfect holiday every time.
