Fantastic Balcony

  • 5 of 5

The views from the balcony really are as good as the photos! The balcony is big too, plenty room for 2 sun loungers, a table, 2 chairs and a parasol. It was also very private when we were there, the apartments on either side were empty.

The stair and lift up to the apartment are a bit tired and certainly not inspiring but we rarely saw anyone else in the building. The apartment was very small about the size of a hotel room but it was very clean and had everything needed - a comfy double bed and 2 easy chairs, there was also a tiny breakfast bar and 2 stools but we only used it for storage! The wee kitchen area is basic but has everything you need, we didn't cook except one night we used the microwave, there are loads of reasonably priced restaurants close by. The toilet is again very small but adequate, the shower has a wrap round curtain and might be a problem for larger bodied guests! There was lots of hot water continually available and a TV with good reception although the only stations we found in Englisg were news stations. Really the outstanding feature of the apartment is the balcony, everything else is very adequate/ The location of the apartment is ideal just a short stroll to the square or the beach. Hermani was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early when our flight was brought forward.

The apartment has free wifi which my wife was able to connect to on her ipad but I couldn't with my iPhone! It is an easy walk from the apartment to the Marina, we took a boat trip and were lucky to see a pod of about 50 dolphins - a great experience! The Strip can be walked to in a bit over 30 minutes but the old town on your doorstep is more interesting!

Sensational seaview, listening to ocean waves, quiet, just seagulls and church bells.

  • 5 of 5

I have to say, that this was the perfect location, in the old town of Albufeira. I felt safe, traveling as a single woman. When I arrived in Faro, my GPS didnt work in my rental car, and I arrived very late at night and very lost and frazzled! Mr Lopes graciously drove to find me and escorted me, as if I was Lady Diana, to the apartment. The apartment was clean, spotless, tranquil, comfortable queen size bed. He let me borrow his internet device charger that I could put in my purse to have internet through his server away from the apt! That was a super convenience to have!! Every morning, I woke up to a beautiful sunrise facing directly the terrace, and had sun all day. I decided to just spend the day on the terrace having privacy all to myself. The apartment is top floor of the building, I felt like a VIP since there were no neighbors in the adjoining apts. There is a supermarket right at the entrance of his building. And I could take stairs to get down to the beach below. Also, I was next to the beautiful cathedral and took a few steps to the main street of the old town with beautiful mosiac streets, music, and several restaurants and gift shops. I really enjoyed myself, as it was perfectly located and I could hear the ocean waves from the terrace. It is their non tourist season, so many shops were closed, but perfect if you're looking for a sunny, tranquil getaway and view of the sea. I found some excellent restaurants for piri piri chicken, Albufeira Gourmet on 4 rua de Cotovia and a hairdresser, Célia, on 7 rua dr. diogo leote, and the best pastelaria, called Riviera, on Cerro de Alagoa which is the ground floor of a big hotel, Brisa Sol.

I am definitely coming back, I want to see the dolphins, and I still have more to discover in the Algarve. Thank you, Hernani, for being an excellent host and helping me with everything!! Sincerely, Aimée

Stunning Views of Albufeira!!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little studio apartment for 2 people, not huge but adequate for our needs - Hernani (the owner) met us there on the day and was very helpful. The Studio had all the things we needed, washcloths, plates, cutlery, glasses etc and we could cook our own meals if we wanted to. The views from the Balcony were amazing - views of the sea during the day, then Albufeira at night when the sun went down! Would definitely stay here again - thanks Hernani!

A room with a view.Beautiful apartment.

  • 4 of 5

well, what can i say. A brilliant find. We go to Albufeira once or twice a year and we love a sea view. We could not have asked for more. The view was stunning and the balcony and sunbeds were a plus as the weather was fab for a whole 11 days in November.The apartment itself was spotless. You had everything you need for a self catering holiday. Hernani was so helpful. He waited for our arrival and came into the apartment and tuned the television in and the Wi Fi was great as well. Thank you so much for the use of your Beautiful apartment and we hope to see you again soon.
