About Maria Cooper

Hello, we are David and Maria Cooper and live in Marlow, Buckinghamshire we have three boys. We were introduced to the Algarve about five years ago when we were contemplating buying in Spain and we were told to look at the Algarve before doing so, on arriving we instantly loved it. The people are friendly, the food is amazing and the beaches incredible, miles of golden beaches and blues seas everywhere, there are great sailing and wind surfing opportunities. We knew that this would be a place that we would love to revisit again and again, as we love the outdoor lifestyle. When we travel we love to take our tennis rackets and golf clubs and a number of books for a good relaxing time. Everyone to date has loved their time in out apartment.

Maria Cooper purchased this apartment in 2006

Hi Maria

Yes, we loved our holiday in the Algarve. The apartment was perfect and we thought spacious - plenty room for us 4.

The weather fantastic and the pool area was never too crowded. We would certainly consider renting from you again.

Lovely apartment - perfect base, great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay with our family (2 adults, 2 kids) in Aug 2016. The apartment provides everything you could need and is perfectly placed in a quiet location just a short walk down to the strip.

The pool is very quiet and there are sunbeds provided with the apartment.

The apartment is well maintained by Dawn and Elaine, who were very helpful - they also arranged airport transfers to and from Faro for us in advance of our trip.

I would recommend the property to both couples and families and we look forward to returning in the future.

Montechoro apartment, Portugal

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a fantastic choice for myself and my boyfriend, situated at the top of the strip we had easy access to many bars and restaurants within minutes of walking. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed with a lovely view from the private terrace, which we enjoyed sitting out having our breakfast and lunch. The pool was right at our back door with sun loungers provided. Most days we had the pool to ourselves which was an added bonus. The security was excellent with locked gates, we felt safe at all times within the apartment complex. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit montechoro, Portugal it would definitely suit anyone from families to young or older couples. Really enjoyed my visit and I hope to be back in the near future and will definitely hope to book this apartment again.

Super clean apartment in a 10/10 location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment recently from the 12th July-18th July. It is amazing and will be returning next year.

We had the pool to ourselves bar one day when there was only another couple, it is extremely;y clean and lovely and warm in the sunshine.

The location is 10/10 with around a 5-10 walk to the top of the new strip where there are endless amounts of bars / restaurants etc would recommend the Top Deck, we ate here for 60 euros and had starters mains deserts and 2 bottles of wine!

There is a small cafe and supermarket a minutes walk from the apartment.

There is a beach at the bottom of the strip (20 mins walk) but we actually caught the little train a few times and went to the old town one which we preferred - the train is only 4 euros return pp.

All in all I would without doubt recommend this apartment, Maria is extremely helpful and even booked us transfers!

Thank you once again

Lovely One Bedroomed Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Me & my husband stayed here for a week at the end of July. Meet and greet was great, very friendly. The apartment itself is very spacious and well equipped. The air con was a great and also the shutters for the doors and window were ideal. We were facing the pool area which is gate secured and wasn't very busy, its a good size pool with also a separate little jacuzzi/kids pool. It is situated about a 10 mins walk to the top of the strip (but there are pubs on route!) and to the bottom of the strip is about 20 mins downhill, so be aware of the walk on the way home. We got used to it after a couple of days. There is a mini train that takes you into Old Town only 4 euro return, well worth a visit, beautiful in the day and buzzing at night, it is very family orientated. We went here a couple of times, day and night, the beach is beautiful.

Be aware Portugal is hilly, a beautiful place though, but if you have walking difficulties it may not suit you. However, we would return. We managed to get an airport transfer return for 60euros, shop around!!.

Holiday In Portugal Alberferia

  • 4 of 5

Myself my girlfriend and her daughter stayed in Portugal Alberferia, on the 16th - 23rd of July 2014 this summer.

We had a great holiday, the weather was very nice and we had sun for the week that we were there. Although one of the days the morning was overcast, but by the afternoon the sun was out shining again, as it was for the week that we were there.

The apartment that we privately rented through Maria was spotless and very clean, it had all modern amenities and there wasn't a thing that we needed or could suggest.

The beach oura beach was a 10 minute stroll along the strip, which has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants on both sides.

Our transfer, Paul was there to pick us up from the airport and he also dropped us back to the airport thanks Paul.

Also Maria and Elaine, were very helpful in assisting us with our holiday and everything went smoothly, we will return again next year :D
