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

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment.

It was a perfect distance away from the hustle and bustle of the strip which was certainly not for us !

We loved the peaceful location of the apartment and we enjoyed the walk to some lovely restaurants and the beach.

We got the bus train to the old town which leaves from the strip and on other days we walked right to the end of the strip which leads to a lovely beach. We did get a tuk tuk back up at the end of the afternoon!

The apartment has everything you could ever want we didn't cook but if you wanted to it had everything in it !

Air conditioning was superb but the apartment was lovely and cool anyway and the shutters were great in the bedroom to keep the light out of you wanted a lie in.

The transfers organised through the owner was superb and so was the host that met us at the apartment.

Pool area was great too.

Lovely and quiet.

Great little Italian style cafe around the corner from the apartment very cheap for coffee and cake or breakfast pastry. Also did takeaways.

Super location, equipped with all the amenities you would need.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and we'll equipped apartment certainly gives that home away feel. Property located in a nice quiet area if you are looking a more relaxed holiday away from it all yet close enough to the nightlife within walking distance if your looking a fun night out.

Loved the pool area, no problems with sunbeds and most days no more than 4 persons at pool side.

Apartment had wifi, TV and great choice of TV channels sky movies etc also a bbq which we made good use of.

Kitchen excellent with dishwasher good cooking facilities etc.

Comfortable enough bed with plenty of storage for clothes.

Communication with host very good with any queries questions replied to promptly.

Overall we had a great holiday and would certainly recommend and would book again.

Thankyou for providing a lovely holiday.

Paul & Ruth

"Spot on"

  • 5 of 5

Great location (10 min Strip) but local shops and bars nears by. Really good pool with your own beds. Good working AC that was very quiet. Managed to watch the odd film on Sky Movies and got all the football news on Sky Sports. Would definitely go back again but for a longer time. Any information required was sorted by Dawn the manager. 10/10

i bedroom apartment in montechorro

  • 4 of 5

We had this apartment for 4 weeks recently . As it was long term we asked about the television having English channels .Maria the owner sorted this out for us and it was great with all sports channels and everything we wanted and more . The apartment is a great size with plenty of room with a bonus of being ground floor so it is easy to just go over to the pool area which was mostly empty .The location is very good in a quiet area with lovely little Portuguese bars nearby which are really cheap and friendly [ Joses and a nice Brazilian bar round the corner ].But it is only about a 10 min walk to the strip which at times is bedlam .there is a city bus which goes into the old town at regular intervals which stops almost outside the apartment but it is a nice walk there .There are a number of restaurants at the top of the strip on the way down [ Lluigis and one at the side of chicken and ribs which for 8.5 euros its 3 course with a bottle of wine and coffee ].all in all had a great time and would recommend the apart anytime !!!

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.
