Guestbook comments from the owner

‘We had a great holiday, enjoyed touring the Algarve area. The apartment was beyond our expectations, the layout and size of the condo was great. The apartment felt like it was home with all the modern conveniences. It was enjoyable to lounge around and make use of the roof terrace. We found the location very central to all areas of the Algarve, we managed to visit most of the little towns within an hours drive each way. The weather was 25 and sunny every day so we had a great vacation. Thank you for allowing us to use your condo and we would recommend the condo to anyone looking to stay in this area’ - Owen and Patt, Ontario, Canada

"...a welcoming comfortable apartment - nicely off the beaten track, but easily within reach of most places." - Helen and Alastair, Reading U.K.

"Enjoyed our stay here; apartment is lovely - everything we expected and more!" - Chris and Graham, Manchester U.K.
