Guestbook comments from the owner

'Thank you so much for renting the apartment to us, we had a really lovely holiday! The apartment is absolutely perfect with everything we could possibly wish for, just like a home from home, even better with the pool too! The position of it is great, so handy for shops, eating places, beaches and many lovely places to visit!'

'Many many thanks for the use of your apartment. May I say what a lovely property it is too. Our whole family really enjoyed our 2 weeks in the sun and had a much needed relaxing break in our favourite part of Portugal. We are already talking of returning next year'

2 weeks of heaven!! Fantastic property and location. This was our 5th time in the Algarve and this apartment was excellent. Very clean and well equiped. It had all you needed for a very relaxing holiday, beaches and supermarkets all within 10 minutes walk. BBQ was well used and pool was just right, lots of room inside and out. Have started saving for next year already!!

This area has some of the most spectacular beaches in the Algarve. Gale and Lourenco are the nearest, only a 10 min walk away. Both have good restaurants and toilet facilities. Gale's long sandy beach is particularly child friendly with a life guard & water sports in the summer months. It is also a wonderful spot to watch the fantastic sunsets. There are many other beautiful coves and beaches in the area including Sao Rafael, Castelo, Evaristo, Salgados and Coelha, all only a 5 mins drive away.


Faro is the nearest airport, 35 mins from the apartment. Car hire is not essential, although we do recommend it as there are so many wonderful places to visit.


Albufeira, Portugal's largest seaside resort, is a 10 min drive away. Aqualand and Zoomarine (one of the few venues in Europe where you can swim with dolphins) are within a 10 mins drive, and Slide and Splash and Krazy World are a little further on. Within an hour's drive are the Monchique mountains, historic towns like Silves and Paderne, quaint villages including Alte and Ferragudo and the Spanish border.

Further Details:

Within a short walk of the apartment you will find many excellent restaurants, bars, two good supermarkets, cash machine, hairdressers, dry cleaners, telephone and patisserie. Albufeira: The old part of this former quiet fishing village has retained much of its original charm. There are market stalls in the narrow cobbled streets and numerous shops and restaurants around the main square. If you want more of a party atmosphere visit "The Strip" with its many bars, restaurants and discos. The colourful new Marina has a good choice of restaurants and bars, and you can also book Dolphin watching cruises, fishing trips, scuba diving etc. from here. Guia - a ten minutes drive inland - has over 30 restaurants and is the original home of Chicken Piri Piri. The Algarve Shopping Centre is here with numerous shops, boutiques, a large supermarket, bowling alley, multiplex Cinema (with films in English) and a food hall. Sir Cliff Richard's Algarvian home and famous vineyard are also nearby.
