About Paulo Guerreiro

Both owners were born and raised in Algarve, Portugal and moved to the United States in 1984. We now reside in Madison, NJ with our two children and run our own business. We love going back to Algarve each year to see our family and friends, and to spend time at the many beautiful beaches nearby.

Paulo Guerreiro purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Paulo Guerreiro chose Almancil area

The area is close to our home town and airport location of Faro, Algarve. It is a very safe location in a peaceful and quiet area for us to enjoy our stay. The beach is only a short 5-10 minute walk away.
